You Threw Off My Groove | The Weekly Geek 66
Whatup, nerd. Here's your bi-weekly, short list of stuff I'm geeking out about:
Article I’m reading: “An Oral History of The Emperor’s New Groove” What began as a feature-length animated epic in the vein of The Lion King ended up becoming one of Disney’s funniest, most beloved, off-beat cult classics. The Emperor’s New Groove was a huge departure from the studio’s usual film formula. We normally don’t get to a candid look behind a production’s closed doors at Disney, but a bizarre series of events involving Sting and his wife led to the unprecedented documentation of the movie’s creation. In this article, blunt interviews with New Groove’s creative team shed more light on the film’s fantastically chaotic development, which ultimately culminated in a script being written after the movie’s release. Great read even if you know nothing about the film.
Video I’m watching: “But how does bitcoin actually work?” This is a great dive to how Bitcoin and blockchains work with simple visualizations. This technology is the future, and although you won’t have to know how it works to use it someday, grasping the underlying principles will help you wrap your head around concepts that will soon be central to your autonomy and security.
Quote I’m thinking about: “The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.” – Attributed to Werner Heisenberg.
That's it for this week! If you like discovering awesome new things, be sure to share the blog. Okay, bye.
