Happy Zefram Cochrane Day — April 5th, 2063!

On 5 April, 2063, Zefram Cochrane achieved Warp 1 in his vessel, the Phoenix. The flight caught the notice of a passing Vulcan survey ship, which initiated first contact, paving the way for the United Federation of Planets. This never actually happened, except in the movies. I think it’s worth celebrating anyway — it’s a good day to celebrate having big ideas.

Funny thing about big ideas, though. They tend to be relative. It’s rarely a full stop to full speed leap. The way you get to big ideas is by trying a lot of smaller ideas first, even if they don’t succeed. I’m a big fan of anybody who leaves their comfort zone to make something they see in their head, regardless of complexity or success. It’s all about momentum.

10 Built it.

20 Share it.

GOTO 10

Line 20 is a bit tricky though. It’s never been easier to share your work, and it’s never been easier for the entire world to have an opinion about it. This can be a challenge at times but good communities are out there, celebrate and cherish them! Always keep building and sharing with people and places that are positive and helpful.

Build, baby, build. 🙂
