String(reflecting:) was the ticket.

I can be swayed on your first point, friend, but this is too far–I say. Too far!

Thinking about it… it might not matter as much as I first thought. By the time we are accessing `.description`, it should be fine for most, I guess.

That gets at my point, yea. That exact solution would be a little bit terrible for newcomers though.

I mean the purpose of debugDescription. “A textual representation of this instance, suitable for debugging.” Adding quotes makes it suitable for debugging, yes. It’s just more subtle than I would have though based on that definition.

So it does. This leads me to question the purpose/purity of debugDescription but that’s a different discussion entirely. Thanks!

Maybe… but you can’t be sure that everything has a debugDescription member. Swift library can do shenanigans, yes, but I don’t think that that is what’s going on.

That seems like it would still require special casing because… wouldn’t that be strange ?

Is there a method in Swift that gets you the quote surrounded string for a String? I’ve just realized that, if you’re implementing a collection… you need to special case string printing.

The 1977 Baryshnikov Nutcracker is painfully masterful: it’s got some blackface and the dancing/choreography is also some of the most phenomenal ever recorded. Baryshnikov is unparalleled. He is why I became a dancer. This is also means I grew up idolizing a show with blackface.

I barely understand the shape of the domain so… I think you understood the question. I’m just considering things like polyphony where so much work can *theoretically* be parallelized but the cost is too high once user input is involved.

The snag is that the disparity in wealth means that it is, basically, impossible to avoid being exploited and creating more wealth for those who already have accumulated wealth than for those who do not already have accumulated wealth.

Scientists (and I'm sure other fields as well) often get hit with the "Do what you love" stick by those assuming they can get free labour out of scis. That passion & excitement we feel & show for our fields is a strength...but it can also be a doorway for mistreatment.

How loose are we being with the definition of “person” in this scenario?
