Kawara

Anything, Anywhere, All in Time

Life is full of cycles. The days; the seasons; the years. These cycles give life rhythm—a cadence. It seems like everything is desperate for our attention. We open our phones quickly, only to get sucked into swiping endlessly.

Kawara lets you follow anything, anywhere, on your own time. From once every few days, to every few months. Instead of updating endlessly, it provides you with a daily collection, and doesn’t update again until tomorrow.


Never Forget a Good Mix

You’ve favorited a tune or saved a mix, but there’s new music released all the time. Drop it in Kawara to remember later; because there’s more to life than reverting back to Drake.

Finesse Your Social Media Habits

Some people post. A LOT. Not naming names. We want to stay in the loop, but on our own time. Don’t “delete your account”, k? Just use it more wisely. Also, who else is tired of all the ads in your feed? Yeah.

Remember What Inspires You

How many times have you saved something to reference later, but never actually revisit it? Level up your digital hoarding habit by reminding future you of what’s exciting now.

Time for Personal Sites

Tip,

Let’s go back for a moment to the early web. The “Weird HTML” era and golden days of personal publishing. There are no profiles, only pages—each uniquely made. It was messy and sometimes a pain, but the creative freedom was limitless.

Version 1.2.0

Update,

Oh look at that, a new release. Many of you have kindly provided feedback over the past two weeks. In appreciation for the input, here’s an update with useful new functionality, and some necessary finesse.

Jon-Kyle’s List

List,

This a brief collection of my recent additions to Kawara. The first keeps me impulsively opening Instagram. The second helps keep things in perspective, and is sometimes forgotten. The third is a quiet area of an otherwise noisy channel.

Kawara + Are.na

Tip,

Generating context around what inspires you is a process greatly enhanced by the right tools. Kawara compliments Are.na by helping to introduce a cadence to your process, and improve on the habits you have with what inspires you.

A Mix of Rhythm

Musing,

When describing time it’s useful to use musical metaphors. In anticipation of Kawara’s release, here is a mix highlighting contemporary percussion and tracks encapsulating the overlap.

The Start of Another Decade

Musing,

Somehow it’s not only the beginning of the new year, but also a new decade. Life is full of these cycles. The days, the seasons, the years themselves. Longer cycles tend to prompt reflection, and with each new year we look to the past, often in search of some insight about the future.
