|01 Jun 2023 05:23||Started working on something new - what I call The Moment Project. [Polaroid Camera](https://www.polaroid.com/en_us/products/now-plus-polaroid-camera?variant=39854516863048) joins the toy bag.|
|01 Jun 2023 05:20||Moved to San Jose recently. Mostly exploring a whole bunch of places in the Bay Area and working on developer tooling this summer.|
|09 May 2023 08:41||Moved /people to private - something about it didn't quite feel right. There'll always be a snapshot of the page on the [Wayback Machine](https://web.archive.org/).|
|07 May 2023 09:17||A cool [reddit AMA](https://www.reddit.com/r/developersIndia/comments/13acrzg/i_am_kailash_nadh_hobbyist_developer_cto_at) by Zerodha's CTO, Kailash Nadh. Discussions mostly centered around tech stack, culture, decision making, advice, opinions on recent technological progress and more. Another interesting read ([amateurs-vs-professionals](https://fs.blog/amateurs-professionals/)), but realize it's never 0 or a 1 - it's a spectrum. I have been reading some thought-provoking blocks these days; primariliy on reddit, hackernews and all over the internet - might start a **`What I Read this Week`** soon.|

|26 Apr 2023 23:33||I am not a fan of [EDM](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_dance_music) music, but, The 2022 album from The Chainsmokers duo - [So Far So Good](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/So_Far_So_Good_(The_Chainsmokers_album)) has to be their most independent and best work yet. Some of my personal favorites from the album - - [Something Different](https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=WEVGDEGiGtQ&feature=share) - [Solo Mission](https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=2ch4GkBLCkk&feature=share) - [In Too Deep](https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=u2q_exOfKyk&feature=share)|

|07 Apr 2023 07:51||I am very clear about my purpose in this world, I want to create _impact_; either directly or by leveraging my learnings to enable someone whose intent is to pay it forward. I am not interested in buying a big car, fancy watch or mansion. Growing up, I always wanted that - now I elude most of it. Heck, I never wore a watch, and probably never will. I mostly do things if I enjoy them or if I want to experience/learn something new or for no reason at all. At one point, I bought 4 black colored t-shirts in a row, just because I thought I spent too much time thinking about colors in the past month. I am not interested in helping people who **just** want to make their ends meet, chill rest of the time and play the dick-swinging game of money, houses, and cars. This is how I have felt for long. By putting this out here, I am holding myself accountable and creating a commit to correct myself if the situation arises. _* impact_ is very broad - in this case, I am mostly talking about building, technological progress or social good, either direct or n-order.|

Recorded a bunch of samples over the past week on my new MIDI keyboard controller.
With the 25-keys, I find it difficult to adjust the scales in real-time - but good enough to get started. Tinkering around with Grageband plugins at midnight is therapeutic.
i used the stienway piano plugin on garageband for these, will post notes soon.

Now I get the staff-notation. Ordered a 25-key MIDI keyboard controller today to start practicing.

Okay, that’s a good hook at the start of the book.

I continue to use Github issue’s file upload to host ad-hoc files and get publicly accessible links, dumb but effective. I was wondering if someone has built a simple tool to exploit this - GCS: Github as Cloud Storage(?), lol. Call me stupid, but this helps in case you’re in rush - I have heard people talk about hosting images on s3, dRoPbOx, and whatnot just for a shitty JPEG to be linked on an occasionally-accessed-static-website. Github Gist is something that comes close but is not exactly the use case I am talking about. example

I have been curious about music production, sporadic reading music theory for long now. I am starting with the Fundamentals of Music Theory class today. Also planning to visit the Music Instrument Meuseum soon, hoping that drives me to learn more about music.
