Product of the Environment
Post from October 23, 2009 (↻ August 16, 2013), filed under Philosophy.
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?
I’m Jens Oliver Meiert, and I’m an engineering manager and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for Google, I’m close to the W3C and the WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly. Other than that, I love trying things, sometimes including philosophy, art, and adventure. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.

Perhaps my most interesting book: 100 Things I Learned as an Everyday Adventurer (2013). During my time in the States I started trying everything. Everything. Then I noticed that wasn’t only fun, it was also useful. Available at Amazon, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play Books, and Leanpub.
