I used to spend a lot on booze. Now I spend a lot supporting grass-roots activism. You can too.

My Principle

Bret Victor is one of my favourite thinkers. One of the few people who deserves the oft-chuckled-at title of "thought leader".

In his talk Inventing on Principle, Bret described how he, and many other influential figures, have been guided by a driving principle, unique to the individual, which when applied to a variety of situations, led them to improve and innovate upon the status quo. He advocated that one could find their personal principle, identify with it, and be guided by it.

I think I've found my principle.
