You know, I don’t think I’ve ever spoken this much about technology before.
Not many of my friends back home are that deep into tech stuff, and practically none of them are as excited about obscure but hopefully bleeding edge projects like Urbit as I am. When I fly back home on Friday, that’s gonna be it for me. I’ll lose that outlet for in-depth discussions about the technologies that are currently trying to grab hold of the world. Nobody to shittalk blockchain buzzword tech with, nobody to gawk at the market with.
Of course, I can still reach out to those people online. And of course, I can probably get some higher level conversations about this stuff going if I try for a little bit. It’s not going to be the same though. But I guess that makes my time here even more special, being able to talk about things in a way that’s unique to here.
That said, it’s inevitable that I host an Urbit meetup in the Netherlands some day, so who knows.
