The Autodidacts

Exploring the universe from the inside out

Autodidacts Newsletter #22

For those of you who are new: Welcome! We have three new posts for you. They aren’t entirely representative of what we usually publish, but our posts rarely are.

  1. The Grug Brained Writer: a lunatic essay that attempts to compress a lifetime of learnings about writing into baby-speak.
  2. Reclaim your focus with ~12 lines of bash: self control for Linux nerds.
  3. Knowledge & The Coastline Paradox: a perhaps-obvious three-sentence insight that emerged during an argument, and made the whole thing worth it. “A Mercator map is a total lie.[1] But it can still save people from the rocks. And sometimes it’s better than a globe — because it folds and fits in your pocket.”

Stay curious & kind,
