i like how no people who shit on "anarchism" actually know what it is

no one who shits on "socialism" actually knows what it is

and no one who defends "capitalism" actually knows what it is

The BBC Micro:bit could have been a terrific little platform to teach the basics of assembly, instead it relies on a clusterfuck of half-working tools to teach Typescript.

Very often historical films actually exclude certain details because, though they may have actually occurred, they seem too exaggerated to be true.

I learned today that there is actually a name for this in film production: the Tiffany Problem. It comes from the idea that naming a character Tiffany in, say, the 14th Century, feels out of place. But the truth is that the name Tiffany has origins in 12th Century Greece. So it's entirely likely to be true.

Wild.

It’s not always enough to just schlep up a whip antenna and pump out 150mw. If you are going to do radio, you ought to think as radio. Radio has its own geography and biology. It breathes with the day and the moods of the Sun and Earth.

Feel the analogue, viscous, ineffable way radio flows. Then you can actually do big and interesting things with it.

Hams often get this. Few others do these days... 🤷🏽‍♀️
