Max Antonucci

Journalist turned full-time coder, part-time ponderer.

Hello Readers.

I’m Max Antonucci. I write code, blog posts, notebooks, and musings.

As a programmer, I code for the front-end and focus on JavaScript and web accessibility. I'm also writing more Ruby and Ruby and Rails.

As a writer, I write to remember lessons I've learned in programming, mental health, philosophy, and life in general. Or random things I need to get out of my head.

As a chainsaw juggler, I don't do anything since I don't exist.

Recent Writing

My blog is where I keep my big lessons. Sometimes they're important code knowledge or concepts. Sometimes it's career or life lessons. Other times it's broad changes in how I think. But they're all short stories taken from the novel of my life.

Recent Notes

Whatever I want to write but can't quite fit into my blog goes here. From the profound to the silly to the random, it shall be scribbled in a note.

There are times I question the entire system of society we've built up.

I think of all the luxurious things humans created — television, movies, cars, airplanes, boats, video games, and the like. How many serious needs did they fill at first? Or are they things we only wanted once we knew about them? Then after having them around so long, we now think of these wants as needs?

Sometimes I wonder where the line between “unexpected need” and “manufactured desire” is drawn. Wherever it is, a big chunk of society always falls on the latter side. Then I ask, "how much is a society built on selling wants disguised as needs worth?"

I'm starting to realize life is less about how far you go and more about going a little further each day. It gives you room to find joy in the short-term and build success for the long-term.

The medium-term can go to hell.
