The first one is primarily introduction stuff. I think I’ll talk about the little intro music piece since it repeats through all 40 videos. I still haven’t figured out what DFTBA is. I suppose I could google it (not goggle it). Now I’ve googled it, and going by the first link it stands for “Don’t Forget To Be Awesome”.
Ahh internet acronyms, how I both love and hate thee. Shorthands are useful but they kinda get out of hand. In my career, acronyms are particularly common. There really needs to be an easier method to figure out acronyms. I get that little twitch every time I read some article that just loads on the acronyms like cheese on a pizza with no consideration for prior knowledge on the readers’ part. Googling is becoming less and less useful over time due to over-saturation of well, everything. I’m digressing…again…
There is a bit there defining the “soma” as “the cell body of a neuron that houses the nucleus” (paraphrasing). If I recall correctly, the book “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley, had a drug called soma didn’t it? I wonder if there was any relation? That book was written in 1931 according to the wiki (Somewhere, a college professor had just had that “disturbance in the force” feeling for my referencing a Wiki article) so I doubt they are…but I could be wrong. I don’t know when that classification was made. In fact, I don’t know when most words became a thing…I just accept them as they are.
Ok that’s enough for today.
