Joe GoldbergThe reason is

On the signed-out view of zeitgeist, we exclude content from people who have adopted sensitive goals. We err on the side of caution, since zeitgeist is our public face to the world. 2 years ago

I love the Odysseus comparison :) I’d like to think of myself as him, or at least as the Joycean equivalent at worst.

I’ll look into Power of Myth. 2 years ago

Joe GoldbergThe Hero's Journey

A friend linked to this blog post about going on an adventure

The blog post contained the concept of the monomyth (which he calls the Hero’s Journey, a term I now prefer since I can think of myself as a Hero).

The steps of the Journey are listed here:

As with most people, I’m stuck at step 3, depending on the “call to adventure” I choose to heed. Venessa and I have talked about a 10 year plan to get rid of (almost) everything and live on a sailboat. That would certainly be an adventure.

Some older cousins (the Wise Mentors) have done the same thing, and I’m seeing them in a few weeks. However, I don’t think the act of planning on doing something a decade down the line qualifies as heroic.

Other adventures:

  • Biking across a continent
  • Starting a company
  • Homeschooling or “roadschooling” 2 years ago

Joe GoldbergDraining the Swamp

I’m on a kick that I call “Draining the swamp”, identifying and eliminating the icky stuff that’s on the site. Here’s what I’m working on:

  • Automatically flagging suspected spam goals
  • Letting people vote on goals in Neighborhood Watch
  • Keeping spam goals from showing up in search
  • Cleaning up spam tags
  • Making search results more relevant

A lot of this is behind the scenes, so hopefully nobody notices anything. It’s going to make 43 Things a cleaner place. 2 years ago
