It’s Not Too Late

One thing I love about the Internet is that it’s incredibly easy to try things. Including idealistic, adamant, tedious, and little-sensical things.

One thing I played with now is reenact what stuck with me when reading Ellen Langer’s Mindfulness, the recreation of a particular type of ad—for charity. It’s not too late to send one dollar. To whom? Go see for yourself.

It’s not too late to send $1 to the International Committee of the Red Cross, either.

Figure: Giving it away.

As suggested on the project page, I’m not affiliated with the charity organizations (however, I am an EFF member). I’ve informed all of them, though, and am happy to have received some early backup for this little campaign.

Was this useful or interesting? Share (toot) this post, or support my work by buying one of my books (they’re affordable, and many receive updates). Thanks!

About Me

Jens Oliver Meiert, on September 30, 2021.

I’m Jens (long: Jens Oliver Meiert), and I’m a frontend engineering leader and tech author/publisher. I’ve worked as a technical lead for companies like Google and as an engineering manager for companies like Miro, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly and Frontend Dogma.

I love trying things, not only in web development (and engineering management), but also in other areas like philosophy. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

If you want to do me a favor, interpret charitably (I speak three languages, and they can collide), yet be critical and give feedback for me to learn and improve. Thank you!
