Amplifying Meaning with Environment

In my recent post about work and the deep life, I mentioned that some practitioners of this philosophy seek ways to amplify the meaning they derive from their craft. There are many strategies to accomplish this goal. One that’s always intrigued me is the use of radical environments to induce more inspiration and extract more satisfaction from one’s work. For example, Adam Savage’s cave: Or Laird Hamilton’s house in Hawaii: Or Killiechassie, J.K. Rowling’s Scottish country estate (on the gr...

Adam Savage Found the Perfect Reason To Spend Tens of Thousands of Dollars on a Robotic Dog

With a price tag of tens of thousands of dollars, Boston Dynamics’ Spot robodog was a tough sell when it officially went on sale last September.

The Platform Exceptionalism of YouTube

The major social media services are often described as fundamental platforms of the internet age. The companies that control these services use this argument to justify their astronomical valuations, and their critics use it to validate the need for regulatory intervention. As longtime readers know, I’m often skeptical of this digital deification. Services like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram aren’t really platforms: instead of providing core functionalities on which others can build ...
