Has the debate about its shape been resolved? That paper arguing that it was a disk, not a cigar, seemed pretty convincing

Sign of an immature medium: people on that medium mostly are talking about that medium (see early radio, blogs, etc)

Bookcase Credibility May 27
Zanny Minton Beddoes seeks to incinerate all resistance with a nuclear blast of credibility. Books explode in three dimensions and our instinct is look away. But hold. You may lose your eyebrows but will see cracks. Photos peep out. Gaps are hidden by angled books. Hope exists.

Funnily enough my mum’s “vicar’s bike”, which I used to borrow as a teenager, may have come from Holland! (My parents lived there in the 60s.) Now we have two step-through bikes in the hall

Jimmy Cobb was the last surviving player from the Kind of Blue sessions, outlasting Miles himself by nearly 30 years. We lost him yesterday at age 91, but what a legacy.

Yes, it’s a term used by vendors who aren’t sure what anyone will use their products for. Once an application emerges (eg smart lighting, ride-hailing) it no longer has to be called IoT because it’s a real thing

1. Moore's Law lives! Nvidia's new 54 billion transistor GPU continues the march of Moore's Law, tho costs are no longer staying constant. 2. In 2020, the world's #1 chip is from a 'gaming' company and #2 chip is from a 'web retailer'. How the leaderboard has changed..
