Build what it is you want to build

Some wise words in a nice little video series I stumbled across today, a particularly hard punch when he goes on to say “…and don’t go back and rebuild or you’ll never get the thing finished” as I’m tinkering with rebuilding an existing site using Backbone.js to learn the language, I may never push the backbone version live but I’ve found it useful to work with a familiar set of data rather than start completely from scratch… or am I just kidding myself.

I’m looking for more videos like this, small documentary style films about people who make things. I love the Made By Hand series and the Knife Maker is one of my favourite things ever, focusing on the human side of craft and the desire to make the next thing you make the best version of it you’ve ever made. I can relate to that.
