I've recently started working on a tiny project with some friends. All of us used to be makers, but have drifted away from our respective creative sides due to… life I guess. This is our attempt to revive this aspect of ourselves (and see if we still got it).
We all have extremely limited amount of time to dedicate to this, which is why we decided that this is not a “work” project, or god forbid a startup. We want to enjoy the process.
The difference in the process and the maker's experience between “work” projects, and “hack” projects is so stark it's not even funny.
If work projects are controlled environments, hack projects are open worlds.
Roadmap: meeting once a week to talk about it and see where it goes.
Schedule: none. We take ownership in our respective areas of responsibility, and try not to fuck over one other.
Project management: lol, we have an iMessage group.
KPIs: Good vibes.
It feels good to make stuff again, and getting to work with some of the people I admire, and who are killers in their fields of expertise makes me truly humble.
Let's see how it goes.
