What’s the point?

In what you make, I mean.

There’s comfort in there being a point… a larger vision that we’re contributing to, that makes all of our work worthwhile.

And when we see the point as being attributable to something grand — somehow advancing humanity — it makes us feel even better.

But what if there’s no point?

What if making that software is just to solve a simple problem that makes someone’s day slightly less arduous, or a little more fun?

What if selling that artwork isn’t to heal the human condition, but simply to make cool stuff that you enjoy making and others enjoy buying?

Sometimes there’s a point.

Sometimes there isn’t.

There being a point is not the point.
