I had a dream last night that I wrote some vitally important code (like world-saving?) but it wouldn't run because I wrote it for Python 2.7 and the world-saving computer it was for only had Python 3 installed.

Only YOU can prevent a worst-case nightmare scenario. Write your code in Python 3.

Still a long way to go until inbox zero.

Flying to New York City tomorrow. I'll be at the Linked (Open) Data / Wikibase Summit NYC at the New Museum.

Looking forward to it!

Finally: 'master/slave' terminology removed from Python #programming #language. May appear superficial to some, but signals like this entrenched in tech culture contribute to exclusionary environments.

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
