This might be the nerdiest video I've ever watched: Jepsen II: Linearizable Boogaloo (although that's a high bar; I watch some very nerdy videos...).
Kingsbury is known online as "Aphyr", which is the location of his superb website.
I got hooked on Kingbury's writing nearly 18 months ago, when he published a superb essay with a rather tongue-in-cheek title: Call me maybe: Carly Rae Jepsen and the perils of network partitions
I don't mind the cheekiness, for Kingsbury's analysis, and even more importantly his description skills, are first-rate.
And a certain amount of snark helps the medicine go down, to mis-quote P.L. Travers.
The bottom line is: if you consider yourself to be a server software engineer, or a system programmer, you will find Kingsbury's work both entertaining and educational.
Read his essays; watch his videos; get smarter.
