Subtle Musings by

Scott Mackenzie


Self Manifest


I’m Scott Mackenzie, a semi-curious human often found in a desk-based environment, planning, designing and building systems for the web. I worked with large agencies and prominent startups before getting the itch to start something myself.

I co-founded Standing By, a marginally successful brand experience and tech company based in Meeanjin (Brisbane), Australia. For over 15 years, we’ve helped businesses realise their visions by applying design and systems thinking.

This site is a muse for regular thought and learning dumps, mostly for my own benefit but in the hope that other lone internet travellers derive value from it.

I try to keep a steady stream elsewhere on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram.

It is when you gallop that your parasites are most alive → Henri Michaux.
