Connections, connections, connections
This post is really a part of me setting up a new communications tool called “Slack“. I don’t know if it is going to be useful or help me streamline my communications with my team at work, or if it is simply going to end up being two hours at work where I could have accomplished something important. I’m posting it to see if the RSS feed I have set up within SLACK is working.
This has led me to contemplate all the different tools I have experimented with over the past years that were designed by a committed bunch of people hoping to change the world, or at least a small element of a small number of peoples lives. How many of those tools do I now use, integrated into what I do every day? Not many. Do those committed folks still toil away at their dream? I don’t really know.
I know one guy who is chasing his dream and is building a thingy to clean solar panels. So far it looks like he might be able to have an impact.
At a conference I attended last week I had an idea that I think might have an impact. In fact, I think it is a very good idea. I shared it with a few people at the conference and they too thought it was a very good idea. It is one I might even start to develop with a view to really seeing it through. Not sure yet. Gotta make some connections. I don’t have those ideas very often.
I hope the RSS feed works!
