Steve MacDouell posted a list of three neighborly things he’s setting as goals for 2020, and I just wanted to make a language comment. I hate the term disruption. What he’s talking about, really, with his second goal—become more disruptable—is being open to serendipity. Disruption as a term has become bogged down in the techbro compulsion to ruin everything in order to make more money. I don’t want people disrupting me or my life. I’m open, although probably to lesser degrees than most other people, to serendipity. Disruption is rude. Serendipity is welcome.
