Go slow and fix things

Little bit in love with the philosophy of this crew.

It's a reaction against Electron apps, SaS, over-engineered software and design: and I'm totally here for it.

The things we struggled with when setting up our studio, are also what taught us the most. Our frustrations with software resulted in us building our own. With limited internet, we became more independent. When hardware failed, we learned to fix them. Lacking power, we had to re-imagine our studio and projects, to calculate usage and optimize our setup to do more with less. It was a transformative experience for us, and it c. n be for you too if you try and work according to resources and the weather.

I don't think I'm brave enough to attempt to passage the Pacific on sailboat(!) but I have always had a dream of cruising a barge around Londons canals to do my work. 🛶
