## Plan for 01/12/18
### _Media for Thinking the Unthinkable_ I spent the morning watching _Media for Thinking the Unthinkable_, again without taking notes, but still making an effort to read sources, which in this case included [The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics](http://www.jstor.org/stable/2321982) and [An Ill-Advised Personal Note about "Media for Thinking the Unthinkable"](http://worrydream.com/MediaForThinkingTheUnthinkable/note.html), the ladder of which had a few wonderful gems, including: > Any concept, technique, or tool that is specific to software engineering is guaranteed to have a short shelf life, at least on any time scale that I personally care about. (Which is totally fine if you're into that, but this is my ill-advised personal note, not yours, and I personally care about mattering 100 years from now.) Wow, that's fascinating. Makes me wonder about where this desire to attain a lasting legacy comes from. ### Rest of today I'm going to take an the next hour for lunch and mayge get a haircut, so that puts me at 2pm, and then I have to leave for dinner at 7pm, so I have 5 hours for work. Given that this is my last real work day before visitng Dynamicland, I'd like to get through the following things: * finish the last ten pages of _Visual Display_ * finish reading _No Silver Bullet_ * finish my [BV deep dive](/notes/bret-victor), which includes: * The Future of Programming * RESEARCH AGENDA AND FORMER FLOOR PLAN * Humane Representation of Thought * What a technologist can do about climate change Will probably have to go much faster than usual to make it through. No problem.
