What I'm up to - February 2023

✨ What I've been up to

Hello from Cozumel, Mexico! It's 80° F here - a welcome break from the Chicago Winter.

Since last Summer, I've been taking a "solo week" trip every quarter as a creative recharge. This trip to Cozumel is one of these solo weeks, and I've been spending a lot of time in cafes exploring new Contraption Company projects. It's a ritual I plan to continue - I've already scheduled solo weeks over the next year to Copenhagen, Mexico City, And Tokyo.

Postcard continues to do well. I built new features and did a short interview with GoSolo

Robin Sloan mentioned Postcard in his newsletter. I enjoyed Robin's book Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore while living in the San Francisco neighborhood where the story is set.
