Welcome to the ‘new’ relocated version of ThisIsNotThat, merged with my personal stevestockdale.com site as of January 2022. Some bugs still need to be worked out, especially with some of the videos, as I seek to streamline the content and administration of both sites. And the Google searching index will take some time to catch up, but please let me know if I’ve missed a link, image or worse. – Steve Stockdale

Differences that make a difference

This is not a pipe.
You can’t eat the menu.

The map is not the territory.
The word is not the thing.
This is not That.
