About the author
Ted Tinker is a squid. On his YouTube channel Thinkstr, he describes the relationship between fiction, religion, formal logic, machine learning, and philosophy. He's the only mathematician at UC Santa Barbara to win the literature-department's Most Excellent Prose award, and he's won it twice. He doesn't see a difference between words and numbers; to a squid, it's all just ash.
