Jack of all trades, master of one

Posted by Trixter on December 31, 2015


I’m sure there’s a famous quote that, paraphrased, reads “I’d rather be an expert in one thing than dabble in many things.”

2016 is the year I put that into practice with the start of a year-long experiment.  I’ll post more details in January, but the short answer is that I’m going to focus on mostly one thing in 2016 and see what happens.  It will involve audio production, light video production, and seeing if I’m still relevant in one of my preferred hobbies.  I also plan on taking monthly metrics for what I’m doing and will make those metrics available at the end of 2016.

    So, it has been almost five years since this experiment started. Can you tell us anything more about it now? Was it a success?

      It was the pilot for a podcast. While the pilot turned out ok, I decided that video production was worth more, as I wanted to focus more on demonstrations and answering questions, rather than only giving history lessons. I’ve found that history lessons mostly fall on deaf ears.

      I haven’t been able to produce as much youtube content as I’d like, but you can see what I’ve done since 2016 here: https://www.youtube.com/TheOldskoolPC
