14: The Overthinker

June 30, 2014 at 12:15PM • 1 hour 7 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Zac Cichy confesses the propensity to over-plan his many nerdy projects that rarely ever come to fruition, being too clever and high-concept for his own good, looking for shortcuts while attempting to reinvent the wheel, and understanding something intellectually but then doing the exact opposite.

In addition, we discuss how Zac's arcade job gives him a better glimpse in how 'normal' folks use their devices, why people (especially women) like gigantic phones, why geeks care too much about the narrative and philosophy behind the products technology companies release, and how we rally around whatever best reflects our own warped sense of an idealistic world.

It concludes with Zac being pushed through step six by launching his next project without the need to overthink the details, worry about what others expect out of him and just go with the flow to see what happens.
