Kevin Lawler’s Streams is a useful bit of perspective, going beyond the computer science concept of streams to discuss the streams that are part of life.

The bills that come in the mail are a stream. If you play guitar every day, that’s a stream. Going out for ice cream is a spike, but grocery shopping is a stream. Your hearbeat is a stream. Fifteen minutes of fame is a spike.
