Manifesto going in., originally uploaded by blackbeltjones.

This was my manifesto going in.

It’s been three and a half years – which is longer than I thought, but maybe also shorter than I thought at the start of the year.

It’s a long story but maybe we’ll talk about it some time.

It involves beer, the ever-present draw of a spiritual home, and an offer I couldn’t refuse from a man I wanted to work for.

And on the other hand – a small, perfectly formed idea I really wanted to build – with people I wanted to build something with.

Oh, and listening to Will Wright.

On the high-faluttin’ fancy talk above – maybe a start has been made, maybe I’ll reconnect with them on the next Orbit (2012? Timewave-0! Singularity! SolarMax!)

The team at Nokia Design are smart, funny and like to cause trouble, so I wouldn’t bet against it, or them…

  1. Good luck with your new project. Seems a lot of Nokia people are going off and working on their own projects.

  2. Goodluck in whatever venture you are following now. It has been a pleasure to read your blog.

    I have no doubt that the foundations of these “high-fluttin'” words have made more than a start. As we always say pissed at 2am we have gotten farther than we sometimes remember scowling at an Outlook inbox – fuck I hate Outlook! We are from from carving just yet but the last years have eroded a lot and made a pretty tidy sand sculpture that may win 2nd prize in a Devonshire summer fair. It’s been very educational, and a great laugh. Thanks Matt and good luck : )
