The Webhaus boys invited us to join them on their Christmas cruise next Monday, so I extended the invitation to Tom as well. I was hesitant to take the Monday afternoon off to celebrate Christmas, but it seemed that almost all of our business customers are either taking a holiday break or facing major Christmas ache, and so I feel like I can take some time off too.
Our business is on track for this quarter, despite the changed market landscape causing us to duck and dodge. I am trying to shift the VIVA-mobile into the next gear, but this car did not come with an instruction manual, so I keep - what's the phrase - missing the clutch? Grinding the clutch? The positive news are that the ride still runs, and it is looking like it will be smoother.
How to better capture our minds...
A tangential thought has been nagging at me for a few days.
A few days ago, I woke from a dream, a fully scripted eight episode series about someone solving a puzzle that spans 50 years and across wealthy American aristocrats, and promptly forgot all the character names, the nuances of the plot, dialogue, and almost everything that made the idea worthwhile, and it occurred to me that we need a better way to capture thoughts, experiences. I have been so obsessed with using VIVA to create experiences, I forgot an equally important part of the equation - capturing and remembering experiences.
I spent a few hours this afternoon sketching a product outline of what something would have to do - and it is much more than Facebook or Pinterest. I don't have the solution yet, not even close, but I know it isn't VR and AR... whatever the solution is, it is going to have to replace the notebook, and be much faster and effective. Maybe it is just a notebook, but I am still thinking through it.
There must be a better way... and I must figure out how.
