A random collection of back-of-the-envelope calculations, short stories, half-baked theories, bad poems, and more. 
Many of these relate to the idea of normalcy what it entails and what it does not.

Doctors Without eMails: A German Paradox

Doctors are objectively smart. But in Germany their offices often have fax numbers and no eMails. This paradox is a very strange one to me.

On Serendipity and Joy

Joy happens at random intervals. But one can design life to maximize the number of joy events per unit of time, i.e. its cross-section.

Routines encompass how organizations change. Somehow, our ontologies fail to acknowledge how diverse their shear change can be.

The Big Ambivalence

Ambivalence is strange. A pull that pushes and breaks. A feeling of possibility and joy with anger and trauma. Useful, purposeful, enraged.
