Whyday is named after the engimatic programmer/artist who operated under the name “Why the Lucky Stiff” (or _why for short), and his story is told in this video:
My favorite quote from _why, which he Tweeted before he took down his Twitter account:
when you don’t create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. your tastes only narrow & exclude people. so create.
In the spirit of _why, let’s all use this day to start a creative project or try something new!
