TimeMachiner. Tech, culture, nostalgia. By Aaron Crocco

Happy end of April, all!

I hope you're enjoying the warm weather while here in NY, it's gusty and chilly as if winter simply refuses to leave. Go figure.

This week I've begun reading The Midnight Library which seems to be a near-death / roads not taken type of book. I'm only 60-pages into it, but it's a fascinating read so far. I hear it's quite popular, so if this sounds like it's for you, get in line at your library! Additionally, I've begun watching the Apple TV+ show Severence. This is a mind-bender and so far I really like where it's going. Anyone who's watched it loved it and I have a feeling I'll join that group too once I finish the season.

This past Thursday's issue of The Longform was a fun one about the Discman. If you haven't checked it out yet, it's sitting in your inbox. It's only a 6-minute read and if you like nostalgia, then I have a feeling it'll be up your alley.

A quick reminder that the TimeMachiner Reader Survey is still open. Filling it out is an immense benefit to me and helps me tune TimeMachiner to be even better. It takes 5-minutes and you'll have my sincere gratitude.

Onto today's factoid: The US Supreme Court ruled in 1893 that a tomato is a vegetable and not a fruit. Source

That's it for me. Enjoy today's issue and I'll see you on Tuesday.
