i cannot think of a good example of a service that’s good at being both a destination (to enjoy, share or showcase the final product) AND a utility (tools to create those final products). got any good examples?
there was a guy i knew in school who was a borderline math genius. he was also quite severely compulsive. he always had 5 pencils on his desk, all of them sharpened down to equal length. he would check his alarm clock 5 times every night. he would divide his teeth into quadrants and brush each area 5x times, starting over if he lost count during brushing. the most impressive story i heard was from his roommate who told me that he called his girlfriend back home 5 times one night to make sure he was breaking up with her. i always thought he was one with himself and possessed a secret key to the universe.
