Lisp programmers tend to seem very odd to outsiders, just like anyone else who has had a religious experience they can't quite explain to others.

It seems like I'm not the only one watching the 8-bit Guy. :D
Very interesting and easily understandable content.
Old computers were a lot more interesting and DIY/programming/electronics focused/friendlier, wish we had something like that today.

I missed most of it (you can't choose where and when you're born, sigh).

These days you have plenty of stuff to play with, but the feel is different. It's no longer something novel or cutting-edge, just a simplified and less powerful version of the PC you've already been using (I mean the Arduino and SBCs with lots of I/O ports, some capable of running a full Linux distro with graphics and all).
