Code of Practice:

  1. Wear the uniform
  2. Think long term (like 30 years from now)
  3. Build stories and languages, not things
  4. Create your own universe (or join ours)
  5. Collect samples
  6. Be a sample for somebody else
  7. Look for loyalty, not for a skill set
  8. Do not build utilitarian products. However, use them as a medium to express yourself
  9. Do not exploit introverts — doesn't work long term. Learn to be an introvert yourself
  10. Travel more
  11. Do not work for corporations. Old corporations were meaningful when their founders were alive, but now, they have outlived their relevancy. They exist only to keep their numbers growing
  12. New corporations are no better. They have scaled up features, and today’s founders want hyper-growth for growth’s sake (it seems like every line of code, every feature deserves its own corporation — it sure doesn't)
  13. So, fuck the corporations
  14. Tell the truth (bullshit never works long term)
  15. Study and research fashion
  16. Your phone is a temporary feature — don’t spend your life on it (like you wouldn’t spend it on a fax machine)
  17. Fuck likes, followers, fake lives, fake friends
  18. Remake your environment. Build it for yourself, and people will come
  19. Only trust those who make things you love
  20. Move to LA
  21. Don’t buy property
  22. Don’t go to Mars (just yet)
  23. Use only one font, just a few colors, and just a few shapes
  24. Use spreadsheets, but only to map out the next 30 years — one cell for each year
  25. The next three are the most important
  26. The past doesn’t exist — don’t get stuck in it
  27. Don’t go to Silicon Valley (it’s not for you if you’re still reading this)
  28. Remind yourself daily: you and everyone you know will die
  29. We must build the most beautiful things
  30. We are 2046 kids
