The morning is the time I like silence to work, and the ideas I wanted to write about before heading to the airport have gone away. People talking, noises, and interruptions have knocked me off balance – the brainstorm on a broad scale augmanity idea will have to wait for another day. It is ironic that the technology is about bringing people closer together to understand each other – yet, it has been proven to me that most of the world is simply too busy running around being busy to even notice.
There is also the realization that if I get nothing else from my German lessons and the time spent with the refugee immigrants from all over, it will be a much clearer path to allow people all over the planet to understand each other better.
My brain is wondering how can I bring the prototypes of this idea into reality and test them. It is amazing what one create in a year with a little space, some tools and time. I will have to poke around Zurich to see what space and tools are available as the Colorado lab is a year away.
The most frustrating time for a creative is when you “see” the entire image in your mind, yet, have to wait for the timing to align to actually build. In all fairness, sometimes you get to the, “what on earth was I thinking?” stages of creation that leave you shaking your head. The irony of those moments is they can lead you to some of the better-unrelated ideas in the future. This particular section of the augmanity technologies is one such solution.
While major corporations have the financial resources and deep pockets to provide a more stable platform to create with, the small dreamer has speed and flexibility to counter in the early stages of the process. This is what I have here – speed, flexibility, and enough pour-over coffee filters and beans to make figure it out.
I don’t know yet, if I will be able to speak a little German in 8 weeks, or will I have figured out a way for people of unrelated languages to understand themselves – no words spoken - no hand/finger gestures needed.
