    Actions in an itemized OS of the future

    Let’s get back into exploring ideas for the future of the operating system. We’ve explored the flexibility our personal computing environments gain with items, and today we’re extending that flexibility with the actions you might take on those items.

    Last week, I sent along an overview of where this research has been so far, and where it’s headed in the next year.

    To support this research, I launched a membership program. If you want to see more work in this space happen in the world, consider joining. You will be directly supporting my research work, and in return, you’ll get access to a members-only newsletter with more articles and works-in-progress, pre-release and experimental software, and in some cases, discounts on things I sell. With this support, I can spend more time on independent research, writing, and collaborations.

    A huge thank you to the members who have already joined — your support means the world. Beyond the financial support, there is something compelling in knowing that there is a formal charge from the community to do this work. I’m excited to take this research to new places in 2022 with your help!
