Today I built my first house. It was already prefabbed in a box, I only had to adjust the elements together. That was difficult enough for me, though. The first test was to have the outer walls placed on the floor, here you see me judging my work.

Then I had to put the roof on the house; this took me a lot of time. It was very difficult – at least for me – to find the right place.

But finally I managed to find the right position.

Now I had to place the front door on my house, “by simply dragging and dropping” as the manual told me. This was the point where I failed. So I deleted my house. Next time I will try again.

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
