    Worst thing about the ‘Estate’ film show at the Barbican was Qs for the panel from the audience. They never learn. Second worst: the

    @hondanhon I love that period when films were consistently really great! Oh, wait…

    @revdancatt I guess there’s also the “dancing about architecture” problem. So much of learning code is actually trying things out.
