TimeMachiner. Tech, culture, nostalgia. By Aaron Crocco
The Stream

👋🏻 Hello and welcome to the Tuesday edition of TimeMachiner.

I hope the past weekend was a good one for you. I was able to take my time machine out for a meetup this past Saturday. The weather was terrible, so I didn't get many photos (hence the stock photo on today's issue). Cold / rainy weather stinks, but getting out to do something enjoyable was certainly great.

In the past few days, I've finished the second season of Star Trek Picard while giving Strange New Worlds a try. I have... thoughts. Picard seemed a bit forced while SNW seems to have some great potential. Anson Mount as Captain Pike looks like a great fit in the Trek universe.

Aside from TV, I'm nearly 3/4 done with The Midnight Library. The book is fantastic and even with it not done, I can already recommend it. Just, a thoughtful and entertaining read. I look forward to finishing it soon.

Onto today's random factoid: More photos were taken in the past seven years than in all of the previous history. Source

A quick reminder: The TimeMachiner Reader Survey ends soon. 5 min is all you need to fill it out. 

Many people have said they aren't aware that you can opt to send a one-time tip to support TimeMachiner. Well, I'm letting you know! Click here to learn more.

I'll see you later this week with a new edition of The Longform.
