Weeknotes #2237 - The World in Fuzzy Pixels
This week felt covered by a bit of a fog. Let's see if I can cut through it a bit. * I put in some back-end work on this site. I'm using the Gridsome [https://gridsome.org/] static site generator to build this site now. I did take some time to
Weeknotes #2236 - Staying Put
MIT is, rightfully, addressing physical campus access with a considered and careful approach. Most staff members are unable to return to our campus. People authorized to be onsite need to complete medical testing and daily attestation for tracking. The museum has been making progress on regaining access by arguing we
Weeknotes #2235 - Meeting Fatiguing
Cranking out this week's notes in rapid fashion and keeping it especially short and sweet because: 1. I don't believe anybody is actually reading these. 2. Ergo, I'm practicing faster output with almost zero risk. 3. I don't want to break the chain [https://medium.com/@MrBuzzFactor/jerry-seinfelds-productivity-hack-don-t-break-the-chain-8d1944b8323d] of six
Weeknotes #2234 - Smashing things together
Worlds Colliding We're kicking off a new round of galleries for our upcoming transition to Kendall square. I'm finding myself playing catchup on some new topics but also am super excited by what we're planning in our Collections Gallery and Workshop. We're starting to delve into my interest in the
Weeknotes #2233 - Marking Time
* I skipped last week's weeknotes because last Friday, I was on Day 2 of a long 5-day weekend to clear the head and not think too hard about work or anything else, for that matter. * I read Make Time [https://www.amazon.com/Make-Time-Focus-Matters-Every/dp/0525572422] a couple of weekends
Weeknotes #2231 - 27.5 Terrabytes!
Here's what happened this week: * I had several Kendall museum meetings about digital experiences, including a deep dive into the infrastructure requirements for delivering these projects. I also sketched out a new esolang based on one of the designs the developers presented. We have some nascent ideas about the building
Weeknotes #2230 - What is here, anymore?
Another week goes by as if it wasn't there at all. A colleague referencing time compression shared with me a humorous take -- and by "humorous" I mean "terrifyingly resonant." MIT this week announced some initial decisions about the fall semester. I was quite surprised that they are planning for
Weeknotes #2229 - Mending
After feelingburnt out last week [https://davidnunez.com/weeknotes-2228-what-is-time-anymore/], I took it easy on myself these past few days. I have a pile of winter clothes with small rips to repair, socks to darn, etc. Slowly repairing them in meditative quiet, one stitch at a time. We also had our
Weeknotes #2228 - What is time anymore?
So let's get this part out of the way. I am drafting these weeknotes on a Friday afternoon of what feels like a lost week in what is turning out to be a lost year. Anyone reading this in June of 2020 will completely understand why. Time seems more fungible
Week Notes 1825 - First week at MIT
I’m reviving a practice of writing weekly summaries called Weeknotes, inspired by Berg’s weeknotes. A friend sends out daily messages he calls “wilts” (short for “what I learned today”); he uses those posts to share what’s on his mind or to present interesting problems or ideas. I’
