I got a new iPad today. The 8 gen model nothing fancy. Set up in a tick using my phone. I’ve installed a bunch of application, but no work ones. No FirstClass no Teams, Office, no work or glow account in mail.

Over lockdown 1 and 2 my Mac has become filled with work. I sit down to do whatever and an email or teams ping. My browsers are full of tabs of teaching. My phone is pretty much the same.

Read An Oral History of Wikipedia, the Web’s Encyclopedia
