where can I find people who have unnecessarily strong opinions about pizza, I have been looking forward to listening to hourlong diatribes all week

Ooh I know, I'll start a raspberry pi project, these are cheap

I have spent an embarrassing amount of time in my life thinking that when people talked about Laurence Olivier, they were actually talking about Sidney Poitier. So, today, I'm pretty sure I know who both of those guys are now.

danger here is seeing "at scale" applied to thoughts about philanthropy. computers still a good model tho, if only because signals originate from humans.

talking about something "at scale" has weird effects to it. if i say something "at scale", you might think i mean largest % of population, but in doing so i sort of gloss over the fact that <10th percentile is the most expensive to address.

eg, "if i can serve 8 out of 10 requests, who cares about the other 2", but i ignore the content of those requests.

idk, my innate capacity to apply stupid linear interpolation and false equivalence to these things seem dangerous. all populations deviate.

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
