The motivation for blogging was long obfuscated to me. It appeared that the upside was limited while the downside was enormous (people taking your best ideas).
I’ve come to see it differently.
A Serendipity Engine
My goal in thinking in public is to increase my surface area for serendipitous connections. A series of unfathomably unlikely events that I’ve experienced over the past few weeks has shown to me the value of serendipity.
I also acknowledge that my writing abilities are not where I’d like them to be so hopefully exercising this muscle improves it!
