Computational Skeuomorphism

| Comments

John Siracusa’s Hypercritical has quickly become my favorite geek podcast. It’s primarily an Apple podcast, but the topic the last two weeks was file systems. Mostly they were about why HFS Plus sucks and ZFS is awesome. He also described SSDs as a “computational skeuomorphism”, which I think is nothing short of brilliant.
