In this episode, I play a song by Black 47; I had a key insight about why we acquire stuff; my daughter can drop some ping pong balls in an arcade game; getting the junk is more exciting than owning or using the junk; I passed on Precursor, the open source phone; I passed on Clockwork Pi terminal for Raspberry Pi; aversion therapy for gizmo addiction; my DIY Bookscanner lives again; books go on my kindle and never get read; did my upbringing lead to this desire for stuff? I never drummed.
