Formalities.

Expect lots of weird symbols and stuff, as the project is on formal logic. 😉

Ramon: New! Fresh! A Blog!

C Email O.

I read a lot more email than I write, because what my job really is — in the end, my job is to say no.

[...]

So commit messages to me are almost as important as the code change itself.

A lot of open source in general is about communication. And part of it is the commit messages, part of it is just the email going back and forth. Communicating what you're trying to do or communicating why something doesn't work for you is really important.

Linus Torvalds: 'I Do No Coding Any More'

Efficency.

However cryptocurrency does not provide any technical answers to the inefficiencies since its entire existence is purely predicated on the appeal as a speculative investment first and not on its efficacy to transmit value.

Pamplemoupdate.

Making apps and games from an island in the Marquesas sounds idyllic. It's easy to imagine a developer smiling, one hand on the keyboard and the other holding a perspiring glass of pamplemousse juice, so pleased with his choices. 'AH! Dee-li-cious!'
