Tonight's post is a business update. I thought it might be a nice change of pace.
Fundamentally, people excel at doing two things. We invent games. We tell stories.
Most of our daily activity can be placed into one of these bins. Even if we are on autopilot while doing repetitive work, we may tell ourselves stories as we think about our past or future.
How is technology shaping our stories and games?
We have been working almost every hour of the day to get Shift Sight off the ground. Tonight, I want to share with you some details in most of the categories posted on the Progress page. Some of the items that I have disclosed have a minor broadcast delay.
Business failures are all over the place.
Some of the failures make national headlines. But it’s not the headline that you might expect. For example, a multi-billion dollar company releasing a much-anticipated new product.
Confused? It’s actually quite simple.
These businesses are borrowing too much from the future and calling it the GDP in the present. They are failing your children, and they are failing the planet that your children will inherent.
Today's blog is a continuation of a past post (Sustainability) about humanity and artificial intelligence. I have reflected on the subject and have a few new insights to offer. Read on...
Have you been “crushing it” lately? Are you working in a company that is going to “disrupt” something? Would you like to sit down and talk with a “thought leader” today?
If these are your yardsticks for success, you might find yourself with a yard stick like the above: crushed personal space, a disrupted life, and a lot of unactionable ideas about how to get the thing off your lawn.
What we value today is not how future generations will judge us. What if we paused for a moment to consider what they might say?

I hope that you find the new progress page useful! The page does not include dates or deadlines due to our Teal approach: if schedule is your control variable, quality will suffer. As you might expect from us, quality is our preferred control variable.
The recipe for tonight's post has a helping of infrastructure with a pinch of longevity.
Tonight’s post is a personal reflection. It is fitting, since every event that has unfolded up to now has led to the crucial moment that is fast approaching. Shift Sight is here because of care and concern. Enjoy a unique, free-written piece that unfolded [like us] with only grammatical editing. (The titles and quote were added later.)
