    Starting to Think

    For years now we have had this idea to use HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT not only as a platform for documenting our research, designs and workshops, but also for collecting our thoughts, conversations and opinions on the topics of electronic textiles and wearable technology. Over a year ago we added a new category titled “Thinking Out Loud” to the site, and started to write posts. But you can’t see any of them because they are all saved as drafts. We never finished writing any of them, and probably also feel slightly uncomfortable publishing our thoughts out loud.

    How to start thinking out loud?

    I’ve noticed we are good at meeting deadlines, only not ones we set for ourselves. So what if we publicly commit to writing at least one post by the end of every month, and let this announcement hold us accountable. So this first published post in the category is just that, a promise to finally start thinking out loud.
