David Pierce on Keegan McNamara’s wooden computer. When I first read about this, I hoped the computer itself was actually made out of wood, but alas, it’s just the case.
Tom Simonite on Sam Zeloof building semiconductors in his parents’ garage. I’m intrigued by the idea of tinkerer-scale computing — less powerful, but perhaps more sustainable.
Lincoln Michel on magical realism vs. urban fantasy. I haven’t read much magical realism, I’m realizing. Probably should change that. Any recommendations?
Erik Hoel on the UFO craze being created by government nepotism and incompetent journalism (his words). This does seem to be one of the more reasonable and balanced takes on UAPs.
Neil Gaiman on actual magic. Yes.
