The start of the Manhattan Project from Feynman by Ottaviani/Myrick
These frames got me thinking about a phrase I’m hearing a lot, ‘Talking isn’t Making’.
See, there has always been people who make things. There has always been people who talk about things. I guess there has always been people full of hot air too. There are probably plenty of people who do two or three.
Until recently, it’s all been about talking, because the Internet is a platform that enabled a lot of talking, and a lot of hot air too. A lot. But now it’s all about making, because we’re fed up with talking. Too much talking. So we’re all making.
We’ll all make something. Most of it will be crap. But that will be OK. We’ll all learn something and some of it will be awesome. Which, will be awesome.
So. great. It’s all about making.
Until it isn’t again.
Because, that’s how it works. After a while we like the other thing. The thing opposite from the thing we’re all doing. It’s progress. We like progress. We like to follow new things that other people do. So we all change. Until the new thing is the thing we’re all doing again, and then we want another other thing.
Then it’ll be about talking. Again.
