Or: master of hopping around.
I had the pleasure of talking to the CEO of Tlon (the company supporting Urbit) today about this and that. Very cool! He observed I have experience all over the place, from application foundations all the way to the details of presentation, and asked me if I had a particular preference. Truth is, I don’t think I do? As long as it’s problem solving in one way or another, I’m a happy worker!
Sure, I prefer some things over others, but they’re still all fun, as long as I don’t stay in the same place for too long. If I can keep bouncing to new and different places in the software stack, continuously working on new things — and learning new things, too! — then I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of this line of work.
And Urbit is actually perfect for this, since it’s an entirely new software stack doing all kinds of things I have little experience with. Lots of room to explore, learn and grow. Lots of ways to keep it fresh!
Funny, I just now realized this is fairly well in line with what I’ve been doing during my internship: lightly touching all aspects of their software.
