In case you didn't hear
We officially/publicly launched Perpetual Education
This past Sunday, we sent out an email announcing Perpetual Education and the brand-new course: Design for The Web.
It’s really exciting!
In case you weren’t on that email, here’s what we sent out to friends and family:
I want to get back to the topic of “Trying to succeed vs. trying not to fail” in the next articles, but here’s an example in my own current moment:
I could have found a job or a project that was safe - and planned a life based on avoidance… (avoiding failure) but that didn’t really work with my goal.
I wanted to have my own PBS Mr. Rogers’ or Bill Nye platform. For a while, I thought that path was through music - but life keeps getting more interesting. I still play music. I still make the music for our videos and Ivy and I write music - and we have instruments pretty much everywhere.
I keep getting more experience and more tools and more ideas. The world changed. My focus changed. I didn’t “fail” - I was just living life. I wanted to take everything I’d learned—in so many different schools & over the past 10 years in the design/programming web world—and pass it on, in a fun and responsible way. So far, it’s working.
I might fail.
I’m too busy thinking about how to succeed to worry about that.
I invite you to be a part of it.
What else is happening…

I dare you to think of some things - and share them in the comments.
