It’s been about a month and I have done a couple of mintCasts, a couple of Linux Luddites episodes and have been to see Jurassic World and Terminator Genisys at the Cinema. I also bought a projector.
Isaac has been giving poor people computers with Linux installed on them and has started a Raspberry Pi meetup in Washington, D.C.

  1. Enjoyable show as always, guys. Thanks for responding to my comments. I will look into building a computer. The takeaway for me from your comments was not to go smaller than an i3.

    For some reason, I always have much less feedback for the odd numbered shows compared to the even numbers.

    I had a friend in college who was obsessed with Kurzweil and transhumanism for a while. It was kind of a dark time in his life, but I think he has bounced back well at this point.

    Speaking of Twitch and livestreaming things that most people would find boring, has Isaac encountered programmers livestreaming their coding sessions? The phenomenon seems to be picking up a lot of stories in the tech press recently though I have not looked into it much. I have been working through the Python Coursera course Isaac recommended. Part I was mostly a review for me, but I am interested to see where Part II goes. By the way, there is a Coursera course on Cryptography starting a month from now:

    1. Thanks Will for the compliments. Glad to hear you are enjoying the Python course. Thanks for the heads up on the cryptography course. I just signed up!

      I had no clue that livestreaming of someone’s coding sessions was even a thing. Looking into it now. I can only imagine Joe’s reaction to this considering his opinion on Twitch 🙂
