    Purely because it’s a lovely review of a camera. Nicely written, detailed without being nerdy-in-a-bad-way, and open to a change of mind.

    I called Hiscox to ask why our premium had gone up 37% this year. A nice man reeled off several lengthy rote justifications which could be boiled down to “we put up our prices” and saved us both time.

    @tomcoates Yeah, obviously, I don’t literally think people working at Twitter are nazis but I wondered how it would look and… yes, there’s something more striking about it than I expected.

    (…and I say this as someone who loves the movies: (As opposed to say Doctor Who) James Bond is, in essence, a terrible person and you shouldn’t really want to see yourself reflected in him.)

    1/ Who wants to hear some scientific intrigue?

    A few weeks ago, a group of physical chemists posted a paper online announcing the observation of superconductivity at room temperature.

    Today I posted a comment pointing out something funny in their data.
