When I Try to Meditate is part failure and part happy accident, as explained in this video which shows its development.

A lot of my art works like that, including this whole book I wrote about copyright. What started out as a failed first attempt at thinking up a talk for TEDxGeneva became 20,000 words which make me 20,000 times more proud of my writing than I ever thought I could be.
