About Eoin Ó Conchúir

When I was living in Montpellier, France as a student around 2001, I would take the city tram. I had rechargeable card that you'd to swipe after getting onto the tram, to validate your ticket.

People would normally keep those cards in their wallets. Often you'd see someone lean into the machine with their wallet in their pocket, and the machine would emit a "beep!".

I had what I will call a great idea: try putting the card in my shoe, under my foot. The tram was coming up to the platform, I had a big grin on my face in anticipation of the joke working out. In we walked onto the tram. I raised my foot up to the machine, and "beep!".

We had a good laugh, and it gives my a smile to this day. What does that say about Eoin? I prefer laughter for the little things, rather than covering up real emotion. I prefer optimism over cynicism. I respect creation over consumption. I aim to improve what I can control, and to be indifferent to things I can't. I feel the tension between creating things of value digitally, and living in the physical world.
