Life Stack

Life Stack (Aaron Parecki)

This is my "life stack" - the tools, apps, services and other things I use to manage my work and life.

Cool idea.

      Daniel, for me, the idea is more akin to an actual inventory of technology I use in the present epoch than a materialistic list of possessions. My website is only 15 years old, but there are numerous technologies that I have used in my short 52 years of life on this planet. I wish I had had the foresight to document my early days with Windows XP, with Linux desktops and servers, etc. I have used and abandoned many technologies. I don't have a visual record of my early childhood days of computing with Commodore VIC20 and Commodore 64 and Apple II. All gone.

    Looked over the Life Stack link on Khürt Williams’ post and my first thought was, it’s amassing the materialistic man’s possessions all on one page and I wasn’t fond of putting time into this project, and second, I looked at all the hidden pages I’ve worked on in the past that I haven’t published, which seem to be a variation of a “life stack” and thirdly, I started to find a synonym for “life stack” and one word for the phrase “a list of educational achievements and materialistic gains.” That led to “catalog” that led to “tally” and this morning, “index,” which dissolved “i.” I’m in the middle of this idea. What’s the point?

      Daniel, I agree with your assessment on one level. But I also think the exercise can be useful. For me, just thinking about the tools, software, and services I use daily or weekly help me identify areas where I need to simplify and minimize even more. And I think once you see my list of important things with explanations for why I use each thing/service, you might reconsider.
