    • "Is the noise in my head bothering you?" February 22, 2018
      The monologue that runs in our brain is loud. It's heavy-metal loud compared to the quiet signals we get from the rest of the world. All day, every day, that noise keeps going. It's the only voice that has seen everything we've seen, believes everything we believe. It's the noise that not only criticizes every action of every other person […]
    • Status roles February 21, 2018
      "I don't have much, but I have more than you do..." The second episode of my podcast is out today, and it's the result of perhaps fifty blog posts I wrote but didn't post, because the topic is too important and it's too nuanced for something as short as a blog post. Status roles are at the core of who we are. They change how we […]
    • "The Luckiest Lottery Store..." February 20, 2018
      Really? That's the headline in the paper.   Of course, there's no such thing as a lucky lottery store. And rational, long-term citizens never buy lottery tickets, because it's a lousy bet. But the idea of the lucky store is precisely what someone is paying for when they buy the ticket. That this time, just maybe, luck will turn out the way it […]
    • A changemaker's triangle February 19, 2018
      Editor, publisher, instigator. The instigator is the author, the dreamer, the writer. She creates a screenplay, founds a non-profit, says what needs to be said. The editor curates. Picks and chooses. Amplifies the essential and deletes the rest. And the publisher scales it. Turns it into a business or a success on some other metric. Throughout the ages, ther […]
    • Building, breaking, fixing February 18, 2018
      We spend some of our time building things, from scratch. New ideas, new projects, new connections. Things that didn't exist before we arrived. We spend some of our time breaking things, using them up, discovering the edges. And we spend some of our time fixing things. Customer support, maintenance, bug fixes... And most of all, answering email and groom […]

    • Menace October 2, 2013
      Power is intoxicating. Everyone loves having the ability to make their decisions into reality — to think "this should be something that happens," and then actually be able to make that thing happen. It is also dangerous. And it is especially dangerous when applied to four-year-olds. Four-year-olds lack the experience to wield power responsibly. The […]
    • Depression Part Two May 9, 2013
      I remember being endlessly entertained by the adventures of my toys. Some days they died repeated, violent deaths, other days they traveled to space or discussed my swim lessons and how I absolutely should be allowed in the deep end of the pool, especially since I was such a talented doggy-paddler. I didn't understand why it was fun for me, it just was. […]
    • Pre-Post Transition Post May 9, 2013
      This isn't a real post. I'm going to post the real post tomorrow. But it feels like there should be some sort of intermediate thing to prepare everyone for the abrupt change of speed ahead. Here's a picture of an airplane. I realize that airplanes don't look like that, but this has been a hard year for me and learning how to draw planes a […]
