Have children, and as young as possible. Obviously the children will be young :) but the parents should be too. And then keep having children until as old as possible.

Any lessons from such a long life to share? What matters the most and what doesn't matter at all? What not to miss you what to escape? Apollean order or Dyonisian chaos? Before it's too late for the rest of us.

R.I.P. Lou Ottens, Creator of the Cassette Tape Dead at 94

https://consequenceofsound.net/2021/03/ ... ette-dead/

rewind?

The tapes were quickly copied by the Japanese but in different formats. Ottens managed to make a deal with Sony to use the mechanism patented by Philips to introduce a standard cassette which was then rolled out globally. Over 100 billion were sold worldwide. Ottens went on to develop the CD, which again became a Sony-Philips standard and which sold over 200 billion.
