See, some of the softest of wares
I’ve been swamped by work recently, and have slowed down the dispatch to help me balance out my schedule.
A Seasonal Hours clock
This esoteric-looking clock represents all 24 hours of the day as a word, and maps those words to the same time across all time zones. This way, “soup o’clock on friday” can mean the same thing to everyone in a distributed team. This suggested standardization feels surprisingly warm and humane.
If it hasn’t appeared on your radar yet, MakeSpace is a fantastic take on what a truly digital meeting space can feel like. For lack of a better explanation, it makes the meeting “space” felt, and purposeful.
In my opinion, the best part is that it’s a group of interested people creating it – not yet an organization, maybe a not-for-profit, we’ll see later.
♥️ Loved lately
How to be lucky, a guide/essay by Christian Busch, on how to be a serendipitious person. Not too hand-wavey, not too rigid, it’s full of fun insights. And I’ll take all the positive mindset advice I can get these days.
