My mother-in-law actually has a lot of experience with oral histories (she’s a cultural anthropologist)... so I had a really great conversation with her this weekend about this.
It dawned on me that I can begin to collapse all of my tasks together and start to streamline
- so rather than speading myself thin… I can actually work smarter -> like I can send time with my family and while I am doing it begin to collect the stories with them.
Just finished an 8 week class on PHP though the LAMPSIG LA Usergroup. I’ve been working on a project at work using similar functionality. So just need to refactor the code so that I can use it for myself and then I can start working on my personal stuff.
How do all you pros manage to do this stuff in your downtime after working on the computer all day?
When I get home, sometimes the last thing I want to do is more sitting and staring and typing!
Right now it is more like make it twice a week… then make it not at all… then twice a week.
