💫 How Capitalism Ruined Well-Being at Work
vol. 1 // best of your twitter // new article
Hello! Welcome :)
I've gotten back to writing after a long, long while so I thought I'd get the newsletter warmed up. It took a few years but I finally have gotten to a place where I simultaneously felt the right combination of free time, inspiration, and drive to write again. This time I aim to have the habit stick around for a bit longer🤞🏽
In terms of recent news, I've worked on a few things recently:
Re-designed my website! I didn't like how blocky and large mine was so I streamlined it significantly and used a Notion-lookalike format since I was inspired by people's pure Notion sites. As a CS major I felt like it was cheating to not code it myself so I had to 😅
Working on a service to get the best of your Twitter straight to your inbox. Tech twitter can have a lot of interesting learnings but it can also be full of noise and lost time scrolling. This service will hopefully alleviate that! It was inspired by a script Courtland Allen said he used to get the best Tweets from all of Indie Hackers straight to his inbox every week. I hope to do a soft launch of this in the next few days 🚀
Wrote the article linked below! I'm excited to get back into writing again after a few weeks of concentrated efforts to read more. Hope to turn this into a regular thing ✒️
I recently published the first article from a series on how capitalism has ruined our well-being. I originally wanted to fit this all into one article but it would be too much for one so I decided to split it up. The first article of the series, How Modern Capitalism Ruined Well-Being at Work is linked here:
The next articles will touch on how capitalism has affected and can improve:
Related questions from this article:
How can passion economy work be more sustainable and ethical?
How have we made or may we make ourselves unnecessary via automation? What can we work on instead?
What is the antidote to consumerism?
I hope to explore these questions and more in the coming months.
