yep pretty much - evidence of my theory would be if it's hard/impossible to find a microservices person who also understands erlang/BEAM/OTP

iow, if we presumed funcalls failed or returned garbage some % of the time, would that result in similar software semantics (failure modes, etc) as microservices without the molasses and incidental garbage? (perhaps still a bad idea, but less pain on the table)

Yeah the pattern seems a bad idea - the q I'm raising is if the purported benefits are less about hacking through conway's law (as often claimed) and more about shifting dev norms towards defensiveness by exploiting "network hop = untrustworthy" mental model held by many

what's your take on this, it might be my one "unique idea" I'm allocated per year when it comes to software

It’s not that people who are elected don’t know there are problems, is that the people who don’t know there are problems are the ones who are elected

You don’t understand social systems and why fleets are a good idea. Human beings need to be able to express opinions with low stakes so they can learn from others without fear

Who knew people enjoy Thanksgiving so much that they're willing to risk their relatives' lives for it?

Analogies are a honeypot for people who want to try their hardest to not understand you

challenge accepted: let me introduce you to my 3yo's scream. the killer app of air pods pro is being able to toggle noise cancelling in 2-3 seconds, and transparency mode caps the decibels. highly recommend, never use them for music just as a scream prevention device.

Wasn't this always how it was going to end up? Rasterization was always a hack, recent PBR tricks just gave it some plausible deniability.

And of course, in the horrific case where someone loses a loved one now that can be traced back to their risk taking, imagine how they will feel once it dawns on them when they get their vaccine they just had to wait a few more weeks and their lives would have been spared.

Yeah I've had a lot of empathy for people who, especially in the summer, decided it was worth the risk to live a little. At this stage, with cases spiking, hospitals overrun, and with a 95% effective vaccine, most risk taking is reckless.

Avoiding regret is a powerful way to make decisions. We can all, finally, see the finish line. Bad choices now will come with more regret than ever.

The virus now has an expiration date. So, it's dumb to say you want to "live your life" by having Thanksgiving, your wedding, or other events now, potentially killing people, as though in a few months you won't be able to do just that without the risk.

Don't worry, I doubt anyone will click on it so bit rot will eventually break it. The question is what happens after that.
