I am right out of things to blog about today, so here’s a reading update.
I’m currently reading Analogia: The Emergence of Technology Beyond Programmable Control by George Dyson. It’s a bit of a slog tbh. I think all the disparate threads will come together in the end, but at this point I’m not sure how.
“In Analogia, technology historian George Dyson presents a startling look back at the analog age and life before the digital revolution—and an unsettling vision of what comes next.”
I’m also reading Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer, which has done a better job of grabbing my attention.
“As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowledge together to take us on ‘a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise.'”
