This is much like the modern equivalent of the “Boy’s own Annual” books I inherited from uncles and secondhand bookshops as a kid: just endless hours of fun, from which you learn many things: skills, philosophy, how sophisticated technologies work, how some of the them are not as sophisticated or complex as you think: you get to look behind the veil at the magic show. Which Arthur C. Clarke, I’m sure would commend. It’s anarchic, and civilized.
For free, you get many pleasant hours of relaxation.
This is the kind of subscription that would make a great gift for a young nephew or niece, as well as for yourself.
Listening too: Don’t Tell Me from the album “Music” by Madonna
