Like I completely understand the ideas of autonomous communities controlling their own gatekeeping rather than relying on Big Platforms, but surely theres better ways of doing this than via 'proof of wealth'. This all prompted by the FWB stuff over the last few days.
Every time I give DAO/w3 stuff the benefit of the doubt and read into it, I come away with such a strong feeling that the whole thing is techno-obscuritanist smoke and mirrors, vibrating with pure MLM energy, deflationary anarchocapitalism sold as 'empowering communities'.
Bunches of people I respect *inist* that there is interesting things going on here but every time I look I cannot see it. Feel like maybe im missing something.
The community is amazing and the ecosystem is pretty great. I guess it's just more I don't know I did anything (or rather, had much confidence in the things I was doing) without ADTs and static types
It lets me write my dotfiles in dhall instead of just raw text (like my mbsync settings https://github.com/autophagy/antimber/blob/master/dotfiles/mail/mbsync-autophagy.dhall), then it compiles them to text/yaml/json and symlinks them. Seems to work pretty well for now!
Been playing around with Dhall a lot recently, so wrote a little prototype CLI tool in Haskell to manage my dotfiles with it, called Hord https://github.com/autophagy/hord
Gonna be working on/around Apache Flink 🌿
Hey all ! At the end of this month, I'll have left Crate.io and will be looking out for something new. Quick bio:
- Good with Python
- Secretly a big fan of functional programming and type systems, don't tell my python friends though
- Know my way around Kubernetes, docker, salt, terraform. Infrastructure stuff.
- Have successfully convinced computers to do things I want them to do
I'm Berlin based, but a big fan of full remote stuff. If y'all know anything, lmk!
As a follow up: it looks like in Jan i'll actually know what it felt like to work on the Ship of Theseus! 2nd most senior engineer by attrition baybeee
Also! I gave a talk at PyCon UK a few months ago about code styles, the value of consistency and Black - a python code formatted that i've contributed to and love very much! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLoMFu14wmk
