Daily Note

December 28, 2023

If I look at my favorite hobbies they have a common thread: lack of screens and direct interaction with the physical world. My career revolves around writing software to realize operational efficiencies. Literally automate everything. It seems fitting that my hobbies are board games, card games, and cycling. No screens required. There’s something very satisfying about playing games with physical pieces, and exploring the world on a purely mechanical bike. Both activities are also highly resistant to screens as well. I rarely touch my phone when deeply involved in either activity. My hope is that technology continues to do more for me and demand less of my attention, so that I can focus my time and attention on social contact with other human beings doing screen free activities.
