This being HN I get to be a pedant... I'm really bored in work. Sorry.
But if I had to be totally honest, I found this while researching the history of wizard hats and that's what I like the most about it. Granted, there's almost certainly no link there, but it's fun to imagine a scenario whereby Bronze Age proto-druid ceremonial headgear leads to Gandalf's hat.
Or, more likely, vice versa, given the end of the Third Age was far before 1000 BC.
- Tinfoil hat
- Wizard hat
- Blackhat/whitehat hackers
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux
P.S. Am I the only one who immediately thought of the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland?
Actual milliners gape in astonishment as a SV startup selling nothing but virtual digital hats is acquired for $350 million.
Then the tech industry catches sight of another shiny object.
That HN readers are unusually interested in millinery.
There are some truly magnificent ones, the second link has a lot of images linked.
Amusing that one of these was found in France.
