Life is an Experiment and I’m not in the Control Group

Follow @Alligator on Micro.blog.

It’s been a few years since I used Samsung Dex. After watching a video of it, it looks impressive. Unfortunately, I use an iPhone. Why can’t we use our phones as computers? I’d love to just plug my phone in at work or at home and not have to carry a laptop.

My alternative is to switch to Android, and then I could use Dex. But iMessage has a lock on everyone in our family, so I would be the odd one out. I want to fit in, yet I also desire to try new things.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
