One of the things I love about the distributed work culture at Fission is the “monologue” channel.
Each team member gets one, and it’s a wonderfully low-friction way of jotting down ideas, sharing links, thinking out loud, and having impromptu parties
Monologues are visible to other team members, so it’s easy to catch up and drop in to lend a hand, celebrate together, or comment on the latest news.
The fact that it’s “your own” space and it’s called a “monologue” makes it easy to write without feeling like you’ll be flooding a channel or that you require a response. NNTR (No Need To Reply) is the default.
So I wanted to experiment with writing more on the forum, and this is the lowest-friction thing I could think of to get started. No need to choose a title even (naming is hard!), just keep replying to the same thread.
I’ll be sharing links, status updates, and random ideas. Feel free to tune out or mute notifications for this thread, and also feel free to jump in with your own comments and ideas. Also, why not start your own monologue?
Writing isn’t just for capturing and sharing thoughts that have already happened. It’s also a great tool for thinking new thoughts you wouldn’t have had otherwise. Externalizing cognition and all that. So the easier the better.
