Always Be Curious🔎

May 10 · Issue #20 · View online
Always Be Curious is your weekly shot of sci-tech coverage. Bringing you the now, the how and the wow of science and technology with a special focus on the chip industry.

I started this newsletter back in December as a bit of an experiment. I wanted to share the stuff I read, which was mostly sci-tech, chip industry, and then some outliers (games, paleontology, history anyone?). I tweaked the concept here and there, but it has now held for 20 editions, hoorah! 🎉 Time to do a quick check-in with you guys. If you have a minute, could rate my newsletter at the bottom of this page and use the pop-up text box to answer any (or all) of these 3 questions:
  • What have you liked best from these past editions of ABC? ✅
  • What generally hasn’t done the trick for you? ❌
  • Any suggestions for improvement, scope, content types? 💬
Looking forward to your feedback–and to many more ABCs! 😄 You can always drop me a line by replying to this newsletter or by following me on my Instagram: @lifeatasml.
Onward and upward folks. Have a good week,

Book tip! 📚 Bitmap Books makes fantastic compendiums to some of the greatest games and computers ever made. I have ’Commodore Amiga: a visual compendium’ and ’The Art of Point-and-Click Adventures’, both books are just amazing. Big visuals do justice to the amazing work by early pixel artists and the well-crafted stories really capture the first golden age of game design.
