About this space
This is my space, sort of like MySpace but with a space in between. It’s Megu.space!
This space is built following the principles of the handmade web, digital gardening, privacy, the green web, and the small web. By publishing Markdown notes written in Obsidian, I’m able to edit all my notes at once, create references, backlinks, and see a graph of ideas grow.
Because of the ease of publishing, this space will encompass everything from fleeting thoughts to case studies on recent work. Anything that requires me to write with an open mindset will be published here and edited whenever I feel like it.
You’ll notice that each note lists date last updated instead of created. But they are not sorted in chronological order. Instead, you will navigate this site through backlinks and links to other notes, traversing my thoughts in a relational way similar to how my mind works.
Find me elsewhere on the web:

- Gumroad (stickers, zines)
- Design Tutorials (Sketch)

Inspired by Shawn Wang, here is a disclaimer on the content I write in this digital garden.
- I reserve the right to change my mind, be wrong, or incomplete in the knowledge on this site
- This is a living space which will shift and grow over time, so please browse with patience
- I present these incomplete thoughts in the hopes that together we can start a meaningful dialogue about these ideas
Here are some quotes that inspire me:
A garden doesn’t shout into the void. It stays put and complexifies. It quietly grows.
- Max Anton Brewer
A garden can create ‘finished products’ but not immediately, and not without showing the in-between steps first.
- Charlie Trochlil
