(#5p7t4xq) @markwylde @prologic I heard another piece of advice. Don’t pay attention to the news very much. Learn history instead. Then occasionally look at the news for its own larger trends (multi-year narratives). And sadly this “conversation” around privacy is all too consistent with some historical trends and it certainly has been a background narrative for almost a decade—it’s not very entertaining.
(#j6mz62q) @firstname.lastname@example.org While I think some parts of the FP (and Haskell especially) community can get into abstraction for the sake of abstraction. They do have some cool ideas. I think this is one of them.
(#j6mz62q) @prologic As an aside, this is one thing I admire about Haskell. Its “core” language (sort of like an IR) can fit on a note card. I believe that someone fit it in a tweet. Haskell syntax and type system is more complex though. See this talk by FP God-king Simon Peyton Jones for more about that: https://youtu.be/uR_VzYxvbxg
(#j6mz62q) @prologic I totally agree. If I ever make a programming language, I really want to find a way to make removing features a regular part of the process. Rust definitely feels like it’s heading in the direction of complexity. However, I did see a ray of hope in a recent talk from rust conf. One of the co-leads for the language suggested removing features.
