Product of the Environment

Post from October 23, 2009 (↻ August 16, 2013), filed under .

Let me ask you a question: If you’re not a product of your environment, but the environment a product of you, what would it mean to believe that you are product of your environment?

Could it be that us being responsible for our own lives, bearing the solutions to our problems in ourselves, making our very own reality, not only empowers but also gives some subtle hints about the meaning of… everything?

About Me

Jens Oliver Meiert, on September 30, 2021.

I’m Jens, and I’m an engineering lead—currently manager for Developer Experience at LivePerson—and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for Google, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly. I love trying things, sometimes including philosophy, art, and adventure. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

If you have a question or suggestion about what I write, please leave a comment (if available) or a message. Thank you!
