Been thinking about Micro.blog, the open web, and social media and wrote about it here.

I have found what may be my favorite YouTube channel ever. Botany delivered by a guy with a thick (Chicago?) accent and a lot of cussing. Really interesting, informative and also, hilarious.

Sometimes you go for a walk and forget your hat so you use your fanny pack. Yes, I have a fanny pack. 🤓

Not the best photo in terms of quality due to cropping but I love it because, well, Snow Goose! Just one. So pretty.  Side note: Trying out some image processing with Darkroom on iPad and it’s pretty fantastic.

Big Bang in 2D

This video at Big Think is an excellent description of the Big Bang. As much as I’ve read about it I’ve yet to come across a description this good and easy to understand. I’m trying it out on my family. Michelle Thaller does a fantastic job describing it. I’d previously heard it likened to a cinnamon roll expanding in an oven and I love cinnamon rolls so :nerd_face: But that description stops short of emphasizing, as she does in the video, the 2-D aspect, of only paying attention to the surface. New to my thinking.
