I can’t believe I missed the announcement that Everything is a Remix by Kirby Ferguson was remastered and all four parts were put together in a nice single video. I stumbled upon Everything is a Remix a couple years ago and wrote about how great the work was back then.
However, besides the remastered version of his project, I was even more shocked to see that Kirby was running a Kickstarter again for the Five Year Anniversary of Everything is a Remix. Now this is where it gets even better, there is a bunch of cool rewards out there and if his project makes it past $20K (at $15K at the time of writing this), he will start work on another Everything is a Remix project.
So watch the video below, and then contribute to his Kickstarter project so we can get another great video on this topic. Then browse some of his websites like Everything is a Remix and his other project he has been working on called This is Not a Conspiracy Theory. Honestly, how could you not be a fan of Kirby’s work as he does amazing research and puts that together in an awesome video story that captures your attention. Also, don’t forget to follow him on twitter @remixeverything so you can keep up-to date on his current projects and any thing else.
PS – I just contributed to the project and pushed it over the 15K mark. Now only 5K more to go with 18 days left.
The short version is that when you lay good code on top of bad code, the result is still bad code.
You can’t wait until you had enough time for exercise. You had to make time for it no matter what.
Economics, the science of explaining tomorrow why the predictions you made yesterday didn’t come true today.
There is something ephemeral but infinitely satisfying about starting something yourself. Your shit is on the line and you and your team are where the buck stops. If you get a kick out of that, then you end up having few other employment choices. If you’ve got that bug, you essentially have to star a company or get involved with startups. Otherwise your brain starts to rot and you get all bitchy and miserable.
Finally, at the end of the book after it is all done (don’t worry I am not going to spoil the ending) but Eliot Peper hinted at coming out with a new book (not part of this series) in Spring of 2016. So if you are like me and enjoy his style of writing you probably should following him on twitter (@EliotPeper) and subscribe to his newsletter from his website (http://www.eliotpeper.com/).
