Further into hardware

I used to really dislike computer hardware. It seemed like it always cropped up as an inconvenience or annoyance when I was trying to do something with code. I preferred the abstractions and ephemeralness of software to the inconvenience of physical things.

More recently, my thoughts on this have been changing. In part, I’m realizing how essential the physical stuff is to working with computers. This should be obvious but I’m a bit slow to catch on.

I’m learning from the good folks at sdf.org, who are in general way more hardware-oriented than I am. Their joy at hacking on hardware is contagious. I have a lot to learn, but I’m excited about it.
