Clubhouse: Changing How We Pandemic If You LET It.

I was expecting to spend yet another night with my new friends on Clubhouse, getting into all sorts of mischief as we stayed up chatting well past our bedtimes. We’d talk about everything going on in our lives and all the things on our hearts we couldn’t seem to share with the people around us. Or, on this particular evening, to join a talent show that some of them had put together to deepen the relationship beyond what the rooms we help moderate filled with hundreds of users usually allow us to.

But when I went to load the app on my iPad Pro, all I got was this:

Losing stuff is always annoying. Especially when it’s not your fault. We’ve been shifting the blame and points fingers at other people since time immemorial, but sometimes it’s just plain bad luck. How about that time when:

  • you put something down somewhere and someone put it somewhere else—or worse, threw it out, not knowing its value?
  • you lent something to a friend and it’s been so long since it happened that you don’t remember who you’d lent it to
  • you’re moving a bunch of stuff from one place to another, and in all the hubbub something gets misplaced (or misplaced FOR YOU)

It’s a perilous world out there for us and our possessions. It takes so much toil and trouble to get the money to get them in the first place, and sometimes they’re gone before you even have the chance to enjoy them!

So how about this—instead of screwing ourselves over, shooting ourselves in the foot by having more stuff than we know how to track, why not do ourselves a favour and figure out a way to keep tabs on all the stuff we’ve amassed?
