Media that is Culturally, Historically or Aesthetically Significant to me


  • God Bless You Mr. Rosewater by Kurt Vonnegut

  • The Robot Builder’s Bonanza, Third Edition

I was introduced to electronics and hardware via this book. While the edition I had used quite antiquated electronics (the basic stamp?)


  1. Hackers
  2. Chain Reaction (1996)
  3. Johnny Mnemonic

TV shows

  • Macgyver (original)

  • Murdoch Mysteries

The Bite Sci-Zed series by Alex Dainis.

I grew up watching these videos! I think the presenter does a great job conveying the process and enthusiasm of science (the green algae video is a masterpiece of critical commentary on a primary source). I was introduced to Alex by a biology tutor (also named Alex!) that my parents arranged when I was young - probably 13 or so.
