Make Stuff

If you haven’t been following along, Merlin Mann started up the 43 Folders podcast again. And, like most of the things that he does, they are few and far between, but for a reason. If you can take an hour to listen to something, might I recommend the latest episode with John Gruber.

_Especially if you make stuff._

I’ve been following Merlin for awhile now and one of the reasons why I’m not putting up as much stuff is because of him. Sure, I could post every day, or do video every day, but I wasn’t happy with the quality of the stuff I made. So, I’ve slowed down. Paid more attention. Taken the extra step or 3 to sharpen up whatever I make just to make it a little bit better.

The latest videos that I posted from AMVIV I think show that pretty well. I was very pleased with how most of those turned out. The same goes for the last few w(tf) video hours. Even WRR has been better of late. I think it has been and have been getting great feedback from our fans.

I’m still having issues with the words I put to screen, but I’ve been trying. I have managed a few good posts here and there but they didn’t impress me. I even just cleared a bunch of garbage from the queue that I thought wasn’t good enough.

I figure that if I’m going to take the time to make stuff and share it with you, I’d better make sure it’s something **I think** will impress anyone that sees it.
