05 - This Little Piggy Went to Make Directory
Once upon a time, there were three little files that used the mkdir command to make directories out of straw, sticks, and bricks. They were very happy in their new homes, until one day a big, bad wolf threatened to rmdir their directories. Not by the hair on Aramis’ chinny-chin-chin!
06 - Everything is a File
Everything is a file in Linux! Whether it be Schroedinger’s cat, Gremlins, the Droste effect, bouncy castles, continental philosophy, the Big Bad Wolf, Emacs, pizza wings on a dodo, this video, LCD Soundsystem, Linux Voice, or Graham Harman.
