Considering Need For New Office Space

10 hours ago, for day 52 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

My work are re-designing our office space and I thought I'd record some of my thinking here. Light: With floor-to-ceiling windows accounting for about 40 per cent of the perimeter and in-built fluorescents we want to make sure that we have some dynamic control over the lighting. Working the blinds...

The Wonder of the Supermarket

1 day ago, for day 51 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

Walking into any supermarket, you tend to get bombarded with light, smells and activity - the kind of onslaught that leads to aimless wandering and impulse buys. The sensory overload is something we are familair with, but I have recently experienced a conceptual overload that is equally overwhelming. As a...

Idioms and Micro-dialects

2 days ago, for day 50 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

Last year some friends and I went away for a long weekend to stay in a cabin on part of Australia's rugged Southern coastline. We traveled in two cars and my carload was first to arrive. We had a few hours to kill prior to the others arriving so we...

The Pure Heart Rule

3 days ago, for day 49 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

I’ve started applying a very unscientific metric to art and pieces of media (all creations really) - called the Pure Heart rule. In essence, I wanted some way to separate the works that had been cynically created for solely mercantile purposes and those that had been the product of a...

Ordering Work in a Creative Portfolio

4 days ago, for day 48 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

I’ve been thinking recently about how to put together a creative industry portfolio, so below are a collection of my thoughts on what to include, why, and in what order. Solo Work: this here is the money-maker so should get top billing. You’ve seen these projects through from conception to...

Blind-spots In Learning

5 days ago, for day 47 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

I read about a study recently that provided some insight into how Theory of Mind manifests in humans versus apes. Theory of Mind being the cognizance of differing internalized experience and not just assuming everyone knows what you know. The study ended up teaching me something about learning itself. The...

Dunning-Kruger versus. Imposter

6 days ago, for day 46 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

I've been trying to reconcile the interaction between Imposter Syndrome and the Dunning-Kruger Effect as they rear their respective heads in my life. Imposter Syndrome is the feeling of being under-qualified or out-of-depth or phony (often mistakenly) and the Dunning-Kruger Effect is the false over-estimation of ones abilities through hubris,...

Expensive Lessons

1 week ago, for day 45 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

I've made my fair share of mistakes both personally and professionally, but I've developed a strategy (coping mechanism?)/thought experiment to navigate the times when I would otherwise resort to self-punishment. Here I'm referring to times when I've made in misstep and it's had a monetary or resource cost. I try...

The Escalator Example

1 week ago, for day 44 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

A friend of mine recently used the escalator as a sublime example of a concept that would've seemed ridiculous to even suggest - but somehow got through the prototype phase and reached ubiquity. We had been having a discussion about lamb-grown meat - a speculative product that could one day...

Voyages in Hiring

1 week ago, for day 43 by Joseph Lynch 🚀

We have a mantra at my workplace that we wheel out every time we're hiring. It goes: "We don't want to want to like them". Too many times, we've been hard-pressed for time and need to fill a role and cracked out the rose-tinted glasses before sifting through the applications....
