really liked it

Most readers would rate this a 2 (dated, computer stuff) or a 3 (nostalgic, concepts around interfaces) but for me this is a solid 4 (mediated reality).

My pal Oliver got me into writing paper letters. And Melissa sent me a rad version of her digital christmas card. Stone, wood, ceramics. I'm liking the mountain better than the picture of it. Fewer symbols, more originals. This book is a short and powerful perk on our relationship with our tools and realities, using computer operating systems of the 90's as a prop.
