∅ the empty set

Thank you John

I perfectly understand why John Siracusa decided to stop his now yearly review of Mac OS X.

A couple of years back, and in a different context, I took the decision to stop giving part of a lecture at University for similar reasons (amongst others). For a number of reasons, it was time for me to stop. As stories have a beginning and a middle, they have an end.

Thanks for all the time and energy you devoted to your reviews of the years. They played a key role in my daily activities.

Happy reading (and talking) of the upcoming ones!

So, just as I've kept all my Mac OS X boxes, here are links to all of John's reviews:

Fourteen at 10:52

Hearts on a note

10:52 : Happy birthday my girl ❤️ This precise moment in time is burned into my memory cells…

Live long and Prosper

Star Trek

I only discovered this morning that Leonard Nimoy left us on Friday.

I grew up as a Star Trek fan, and will remain a first gen Trekkie whatever.

Thank you for all the perfect moments you gave us <3

The FCC has ruled in favour of Net Neutrality (in the USA).

An important day for anyone who cares about the future of an open internet. Internet is a global service. Internet access providers cannot play with the download speeds to make certain websites load faster than others. Every byte that transit through their pipes is assumed to be equal to any other.

Now, it's up to Europe to rule in a similar fashion.

I have been contemplating the idea of upgrading my desktop Mac since this spring. The latest 27" iMac (Quad-Core) seemed the perfect candidate, but the release of Apple's 27" Monitor last September made me stick with the Mac Pro...


The autopsy of an iconic album cover picked up on Kottke.org. A stacked graph of successive radio signals from pulsar CP 1919, in a 1977 astronomy encyclopedia that originated in a 1970 Ph.D. thesis. Fascinating <3...
