Working in public

There’s something about the idea of working in public that I quite like. That’s digital-public, not public-public.

Digital-public means that the artifacts of your work are accessible though a web browser. Your process is publicly accessible. That’s all.

It’s important to note that:

  1. Work is not done solely for the purpose of being public.
  2. Publicly accessible does not mean marketed. Someone could stumble upon it, but it’s not put in front of them unless both you and they want it to be.
  3. There is a limited and often scrutinized feedback loop between viewer and creator. Public feedback on work should be processed but not consume the creation of new work, as reflected by the first point.
