Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

First page.  §

Leapdragon is back to appearing, on average, on the first page of results for “Aron Hsiao” as of today.

I didn’t anticipate how good this would feel. Like coming home to myself. Once upon a time, it was always the first result. Maybe we get there again before too long. That would be cool.

Not that it would be good for future career prospects. But then at the same time, I’m 40 years old. What’s the point in keeping the powder dry any longer? I’m on the path I’m on. There’s no point in being conservative at this stage of the game; most of my working life is behind me.

I tend to be impulsive and spontaneous about the everyday flow of life, but I tend to be the opposite—unhelpfully conservative—when it comes to the structure of life. In a very real way, I use domestic, financial, and self-identity stability as a base from which to operate freely and fluidly in day-to-day endeavors. So it is that I don’t have a calendar, tend to operate moment-to-moment, and in fact calendars make me bristle, yet I struggle to remain calm when things in my “foundation” change.

This also goes for public persona and communication projects. I waited for years thinking that I ought to make this change in my public persona, and now that it’s happening, I’m both excited and tremendously nervous.

Thursdays are my “context switch” days now. And as everyone in CS/CE knows, context switches are “expensive.”

So it is that on Thursdays I tend to be less productive than on any other day of the week.

Oh well.
