"Ladies and gentlemen":
-reinforces the gender binary
-makes you sound like a bougie
-cliched as fuck, no dramatic tension

"Friends and enemies":
-Inclusive and gender-neutral
-makes you sound like a supervillain
-dramatic tension: who are the friends and who are the enemies?

@materialfuture imo use whatever language you know. Every lang has a template language and file api. Thats all you need. 🙂

The larger the engineering team the more time spent negotiating processes.

@cblgh @neauoire this guy gets it. Mega65 phone is a brilliant idea.

@thomasorus @electret overall the core concept of "function that takes props and renders some stuff and abstracts some of the weird cross browser dom stuff" is nice. But that cat is out of the bag. There a dozens of minimal and lightweight solutions now.

@neauoire did you watch the talk from on this commodore64-based computer & phone, which talks about the coming digital winter?

@neauoire @rez I gotta be careful to not get sniped by this. Nearly spend a half an hour looking at 6502 datasheets.

I need to start setting all my work into the context of “has low working memory” and avoid languages with tons of symbols. Looking at you rust.

@neauoire it definitely has the “solving a puzzle” feel and rewards that I miss from the early days of programming.

@neauoire if we had the source for alot of these original nes/gb games I do not think it would be pretty. I learned asm in school and I play the fuck out of zachtronics but if I had to ship asm for money I’d switch careers.

@thomasfuchs that said ideally he wouldn’t have been able to get so rich so quickly. TBH rapidly investing ones insane wealth into hugely risky businesses is infinitely better than the average wealthy person strategy.

@thomasfuchs for sure. But the idea, like all stupid ideas, is to try. And up to this point much of it has been his own money or investors he has sold. Nasa got a dozen rocket launches for the cost of a couple soyuz or atlas. Overall i see this has chaotic neutral at best.

"Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability; it comes through the tireless efforts of men willing to be co workers with God, and without this hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right."
