hot take: modern computing sucks mostly because we have no central decision making authorities so everything is either 1) built on 30 year old protocols that nobody wants to touch because it would be too much of an infrastructure investment for private corporations to give a shit about or 2) is proprietary horse shit that only benefits one company
all computing is running on the fumes of research done 30 years ago and every programmer knows it
Let me make the computers.
You might be surprised about how many programmers are blissfully unaware of it...
@dankwraith 30? more like 45-50
There is plenty of amazing work from 2010. 🤪
@dankwraith Everything is completely outdated.
@dankwraith It is.
@dankwraith this is indeed a spicy take. i suppose the good news for this view of things is that the end-state of facegoogapplemazon should be strong enough to subsume all human government and begin enforcing its centralized decisions on whatever remnants of organic life are unfortunate enough to still be toiling in the code mines using direct brain implants within a generation or two.
