Transcript: One more, so I can just like get it into this, I've already written it down, but like my writing is a disaster. Um, it is always all over the place. This is also always all over the place, but hopefully the computer can help me figure it out. Um, and that is, well, the, the sense it's, it's a sense I don't, I had a UI flash in my head, um, when I was going to surf or when I was surfing today, rather. And it just had to do with like, I, I mentioned this earlier today, but wanting to be able to send things to people or like generally wanting to put things out in the world, but also like most of the time, like not needing to poke someone specifically and be like, Hey, check out me doing this. Like, I don't really want to poke people in that way for whatever reason. Like, it just doesn't feel good to me. It's like, I don't want to, I don't want you poking me all the time and being like, I'm doing this, I'm doing this. It's like, no, I just want to go and do things to be honest. And if you want to see those things, like it's available for you to see, like, I would like it to be a soft kind of thing that you can see, like, Oh, CJ has been up to some shit and maybe it's just like a couple sentence summary or something like in the UI that you can click into. If you want to see more detail on it. And it's like a, a thing that's like, I don't know, since the last time you checked in or whatever, maybe that works, maybe it doesn't. I don't know, but, um, that's kind of like one thing that I'm thinking about. This is like on the side of intention, but it's more like, um, a philosophy around the project in some ways of, or the kind of things that I want to put out for myself, I think other people have other expressions that they, they care about, but this is the expression that I'm interested in because I want to continue to do things in my life, but I don't need to, uh, yes, like brag about them in some way, it's not what I'm interested in. Like, I'm just like, I'm, I'm doing my life. This is what my life is like, like, cool. I don't even care if you see all of it, but I do care that you see the things that you are interested in. If you're interested in something that I'm doing, hell yeah. I want you to see that, but I do a lot of weird shit that like you may not be interested in. That's totally cool. And maybe every now and then it's like, Hey, did you know CJ? So's like, he just made three jackets. Yeah. Like maybe that's something that I do want you to see. And maybe I can kind of influence that a bit on my side, but this is another rambling about another thing that I would like it to do.
