Unless the audio recording was made with a tape recorder onto magnetic reeled media, the “tapes” that newscasters keep referencing are not “tapes”. They are digital recordings. They, of all people, should know this.

About Non Sequiturs

Non Sequiturs is the personal blog of Michael Argentini.

I'm a software developer and Managing Partner for Fynydd and Blue Sequoyah Technologies, the project lead for Coursabi, and Āthepedia founder. I also have several nerdy open source projects on Github.

I'd describe myself as an Oxford comma advocate, autodidact, aspiring polymath, and boffin, with a mechanical keyboard addiction. You can also find me on Mastodon.
