"Invented Here" -
I’ve had this tab up since last night when a friend linked it to me. I’m both surprised and unsurprised there’s a term for this. I feel less alone knowing it exists.
One quotation that sums up the philosophy of Invented Here is “Gee, it can’t be worth much if someone local thought of it first.”
In the context of having many images files…
Then there would be some sort of interface that searches for them. (Alfred-like. Right now I just load up file names and keep typing keywords until I find the thing I want.)
Sometimes, even now, I find myself lingering in the toilet longer than I should. And rarely to fix up my hair.
In my childhood house, the toilets were the only rooms that locked from the inside and not out.
I remember getting chastised for something, something I don’t think I deserved to be—usually something a child wouldn’t need to worry about just yet. They say knowledge is power, and when I discovered the other kids at school were allowed to play so much, so freely, be themselves, I tried my hand in controlling my own fate.
It didn’t go so well.
I ended up on the toilet.
And in the toilet I stayed, sometimes for hours, wondering, dreaming if it ever gets better.
To help internalize some of the adages found in Steal Like an Artist.. I made sketchnotes.
