Lightness by Cristóbal Sciutto

Compare In Search of Hardness - by Venkatesh Rao


Nice read, thanks for sharing

Makes me think that minimalism, as a lifestyle philosophy, gains power in protocolized environments. Any interest, hobby, or vocation requires resources. Resources comes with weight.

But if you inhabit an environment where those resources are i) maintained and ii) made accessible, you can shed many of the personal costs associated with maintenance and access. So minimalism (lightness) is valuable only if there are enough protocols in place to sustain a rich commons
