Back to Reconsidering Productivity Computing

Reconsidering Productivity while at Starbucks

Years back, using mobile devices in various cafes led me to thinking and tinkering with what the accepted-normal was in regards to computers for productivity. I’m pushing thru some lessons regarding identity, security, and LLM/AI - finding this experimentation and exploration ignited afresh. Not so much because I value work - in fact, I think as a concept, it’s not the right way to working thru it. But I do agree that “presence,” “coordination,” and “considerations” move differently than a clamshell keyboard/screen or single glass slab. There’s something to this which should embrace our innate ability to be humane I feel. And maybe like in the past, it’s worth moving one’s posture to live in it.
