Welcome to Axzeo, a cloud computing playground. I write, build apps, and post items here that I find useful and worthy to share. Axzeo serves three functions:
— 1. Do-Learn-Simplify, 2. Share, and 3. Remember.
1. Do – Learn – Simplify
Life is an ongoing process of doing, learning, and simplifying:
- Doing = good
- Learning = good
- Simplifying = good
- Doing + Learning + Simplifying = Great!
Learning, doing, simplifying, then comparing ideas with others builds an efficient feedback loop. Simplification is key, as often said:
“If you can’t explain it to a six-year-old, you don’t understand it yourself.” – Albert Einstein
Here are ideas and apps that “work for me” in creating a simpler and happier life. Some of these may work for you…
- some will (I hope),
- some won’t (each of us are a bit different),
- or maybe you have a better way.
This last point is key — if you find something here and have a different or better idea, please share it! I’m always looking for ways to make life simpler.
3. Remember (Memex Memory Extension)
Another quote that’s true:
“Mental notes aren’t worth the paper they’re written on.” – Mark Twain
Our human memory has limited capacities. If it’s something we’re interested in and it’s not overly large or complex, most of us have reasonably good short-term memory. For large complex items or long-term recall, we’re all stuck with the limits of our biologic memory…
- large or complex items are difficult to recall correctly,
- older thoughts can take time to remember,
- memories can fade over time,
- or worse, memories are often lost altogether.
Fortunately technology continues to evolve electronic memory with huge capacities, that never forgets, and which can be organized for fast recall.
Simpler = Happier?
Axzeo strives to make life easier through doing-learning-simplifying and sharing the results. The goal is to make a simpler life a happier one.
Welcome to Axzeo and enjoy the journey! 🙂
“Our life is frittered away by detail… simplify, simplify.” – Henry David Thoreau
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” – Albert Einstein
“Simplicity is an acquired taste. Mankind, left free, instinctively complicates life.” – Katherine F. Gerould
