What's the point?

October 03, 2020 — Allen

I've been working with the creator of cheat.sh and wttr.in to add a better web terminal interface to his sites (adding support for ANSI escapes). In the course of talking with him, he's seen a number of the hobby projects I've made over the years and offered me a spot as a senior engineer at the company where he works as a principle engineer.

At the time I made a lot of those projects I had no goal in mind other than I wanted to make them. People have often asked me "Why are you making that? What's the point of that?" and in the past I've felt slightly uncomfortable not having a proper answer.

Now my answer will be "I don't know, but check back in 10-15 years and I'll tell you then."
