Once upon a time in Austin, Texas, you could walk around in the evening and see people tinkering in their garages, working with the garage door open.
Robin Sloan says that’s how we all should be working:
This isn’t a time for “products”, or product launches. It’s not a time to toil in secret for a year and then reveal what you’d made with a shiny landing page.
Rather, I believe it’s a time to explain as you go. Our “work”, in an important sense, is to get into each other’s heads; to blast out cosmic rays that might give rise, in other minds, to new ideas.
In other words: Show Your Work!
