So tonight I got frustrated. I was having a great intellectual day and my ideas were popping. Unfortunately, I couldn’t document them each fully before the next useful thought. So I would move on, making sure not to lose the next potentially valuable idea, connection, creation… and like always I promise myself that I’ll go back and finish them later. To tell you the truth… I rarely do, but I am always glad it is still there (in enough detail) for me to make good use of it.
This is how I think, when I think with myself. It’s hard to do it well, but I believe that the challenges we face as a species more collective horse power behind them. This is OGM to me: figuring out how to radically amplify our efforts. The scale of the problem means we need to scale our impact.
Which brings me to the point. If we build something for ourselves so we are better at doing the things we do (which are awesome by the way), we will be on our way.
The golden rule great design is know who and what you are designing for. OGM is us and all of the other people who will join us.
With that said, here is your assignment:
Share a few thoughts about: How do you think? And when you are at your best, what do you wish was there to help you?
Don’t overthink technology. Just describe your ideal set of conditions. Also don’t base it on what you think others would say. Base it off of where you are right now in your life and what would be valuable to you.
That should give us some interesting insight into where we might take this thing, recognizing that for every unique individual in the world there would be a unique answer. And then we start to build the really cool stuff.
