So my friend Moliére is moving very, very far away, to Fiji! It's around 19 hours by plane. They're 16 hours ahead of me, clock-wise.
I'm excited for him. It's an adventure! Sad, too, because I'll miss him. Now don't get me wrong, it's not like he and I see each other every day. He used to live several states away anyhow, and recently changed that to several more states than before.
But moving to the other side of the planet, that's a different thing altogether.
But he and I had a long talk yesterday, and decided to do something about it. He's going to help me with a side project I've wanted to make for about 15 years now, a kind of online behavior management tool for age players. I've vacillated about working on this thing for ages, but yesterday we spent several hours chatting and writing down real world ideas for how it should work. I'm excited by the prospect of our working together on this thing for a number of reasons:
- It's going to finally help me get off my butt to get it really built.
- Moliére, who is a genius, had several ideas I hadn't thought of that could make this thing go from a good idea to a truly great one.
- It gives us something tangible to do together, even separated by thousands of miles of distance.
I'm excited by this!
