Siracusa Says

A fun collection of things John Siracusa has said on podcasts

The Hole

A hole is not a tube.

Podcast: Robot or Not?
Episode: 240: Holes in a Straw
Time Location: 00:01:30

The hole is the top surface, the hole is not the interior, right?

Like if you’re inside a cave, right, the cave is the inside part, but you could go through a hole to get into the cave.


No Blooming

John buys a new TV and his family is not impressed.

Podcast: Accidental Tech Podcast
Episode: 494: Ultra-Wideband Park Bench
Time Location: 1:22:10

So anyway, I give the whole experience a big thumbs up. I am much more excited and impressed by this television than anyone else in my family, I can tell you that. They don’t care.

I showed them the footage of the honey dripping onto the thing on a black background… how are you not impressed by that? There’s no blooming, it’s HDR, every pixel is individually lit up!
