@moltensteel Taking the high road. Living (as far as one can) ethically.

Humanity might be on read-write tick-tock (e.g. coding boosts write capability), but we need to update documentation on literacy requirements.

Being able to READ in 2019 requires:

1) Being able to read street signs, menus, 'junk' novels, etc. (hard book requirement hereby removed)
2) Stream smarts, can you grok the topology of the Tweet flows? (Expansionary)
3) Hight truthiness legibility of scientific or dynamical systems claim (Stream Governor), if you use SciHub >1/month, you probably pass.

"Imagine if I could install a version of Ride (call it Meta-Uber) that knew about all the driver co-ops in the world. When I landed, I’d page a car with Uber or Lyft, but once a driver accepted the hail, my Meta-Uber app would signal the driver’s phone and ask, “Do you have a driver co-op app on your phone?” If the driver and I both had the co-op app, our apps would cancel the Uber reservation and re-book the trip with Meta-Uber."

@moltensteel hm yeah, would that make "syntactic veggies" community linting rules?

Currently dancing requires 2 of (alcohol, music, dance skills)

Once people without any of these start dancing, I'll know we've made progress in solving our social issues

The phrase "syntactic sugar" still sounds weird to me

The solution to the notch is phones without front-facing cameras

I'm working to building tools for people.

You shouldn't have to know to maintain and secure a server to have your own independent identity online. You shouldn't need to know what libsodium or similar library to be secure online.

That's my objective.

The hardest part about writing is accidental alliteration and I swear this sentence wasn't supposed to come out that way on purpose
