Basic Needs to Sustainable drawing

December 1, 2019

This drawing is about a year old and has held true through 20 months of homelessness in the San Francisco Bay Area. I just colorized it and tweaked sizes and positions.

I've actually brought in far below $1,500 most months, and as much as $2,500 while employed full time in guest service.

Maslow's Needs Quantified

August 10, 2019

Building on an idea I've touched on before paired with some new thinking, I've created a visual representation of well being. I included a present, and a reference example from my recollection of roughly 2015-16 era, shortly after moving to SF. For those unaware, I became homeless after slander from a manager at a big name company destroyed my reputation and I was unable to continue my career and depleted my savings.

Authorization is granted with knowledge of the path component.

Path components can be hashes of a combination of the user, role, and/or buckets.

Here is a quick design that I’ve been thinking about for a little bit.

Update - 2019-04-16

April 16, 2019


Being homeless sucks. Everything needs to be done in public and requires care, meanwhile energy levels are less than average.

Awkward eye contact. Awkward questions when physical needs are unmet. Awareness stirs in all around. Few are comfortable.

I can’t really talk about anything personal. It makes people feel bad. Less contact with people is better.

Contrary to the personality assessment that companies do when they hire you. I can pass a simple questionairre.

Clojure Text Markup Ecosystem

April 11, 2019

Here's a drawing that I made to explain my concept of the gradient between static websites and SPAs in the Clojure and ClojureScript ecosystem, in my experience.

Clojure Text Markup Ecosystem Drawing

There are surely other versions of this that would be valid and could be explored. Enlive is the newest tool to my landscape and I've yet to Proof-of-concept with it and Kioo, but they address a problem that I notice with every template system: the first template usually needs to split up body and head and address the declarative/DOM update imedence mismatch related to title and styles.

I come at this from the infrastructure side, catching myself up on front-end in 2019 after a few years.
