Oblique Strategies is a creativity tool designed by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt. It originally took the form of a deck of cards, where each card offers a suggestion towards overcoming a creative block. Meditative, cryptic, and occasionally bombastic, each card's message is open to interpretation.
Eno and Schmidt's writings are stored in
data.js, and selected at random.
** When I started learning to code, one of the first programs I wrote was a command line version of Oblique Strategies.
(I wrote it in Ruby, and yes, it did contain obscenely long methods,
puts many empty strings :D)
This is a DRYer, prettier version.
