TC: The best way to [figure things out for ourselves] is by making things — whether it’s a website, an app, or a little book.
DB: So the act of making becomes an act of definition.
TC: Exactly — definition in its original sense of mapping a thing’s contours, in order to make something that’s fuzzy easier to see.
Something a college professor of mine told me: it’s not about making students love the same things that you do, but showing them that they can love something just as much. And that it’s OKAY, it’s IMPORTANT, for them to find something that they love that much.
