I’m often asked “where do you get all your screenshots of old operating systems & applications?” I maintain an archive.

Eight years ago, Edge published their top 50 iOS games: the big hitters, indie breakthroughs, and most innovative ideas of the first wave of app development. How many can still be found on the App Store today? 10 out of 50.

Frederick Pohl said that “A good science fiction story should be able to predict not the automobile but the traffic jam.” Perhaps the same holds true for researchers, e.g. Alan Kay 1972:

Small brain: let's use strings for everything Expanding brain: strings aren't flexible enough, let's use dictionaries Galaxy brain: what about a subclass of string that contains a dictionary?

Alternatively: – People want Apple to make a basic thing (2006-style Mac Pro — basic upgradeable tower) – Apple makes a shiny turbine-trash-can thing – Apple makes a luxury all-in-one thing – Apple wonders what went wrong People shouldn't whine about it, but it's still an issue.

Remember when Structured Programming was the latest airy, impractical academic fad to be judiciously avoided by Real Programmers (For fun: try and guess the year.)

I get this when trying to sleep after too long on a specific topic. I think it's something like the Tetris Effect — applying procedural memory so much it gets carried over to tasks it doesn't apply to, and the mind just makes it fit somehow ("I need to find the func for sleep!").

Indeedy, direction seems very wise, it's just the speed that is frustrating. Seems like the core team could be a little larger..

Understood/perfectly valid. I just don't think a type wrapper is a solution to the above problem of avoiding type wrappers. For DecodableWrapper, the compiler is writing the funcs for you so it's more attractive, but that still has consequences (e.g. nested fields in JSON).

That is type/existential erasure, and only works so easily for Decodable because struct conformance to it is auto synthesised by the compiler. Wrapping/exposing any other protocol would take a bunch of manually written call throughs to 'self.value'

I'd like a fork of Swift were development priority was fleshing out the type system instead of ABI stability. I get jealous watching TypeScript land major type system features/fixes every few days..

"protocols don't conform to themselves" basically stumped an entire architecture I was playing with a few months back. Haven't picked it back up. Maybe implicitly unwrapped existentials in Swift 6/7 (2020?)..

it seems like we're moving towards a world where stories that need 6+ hours are just made into high quality tv series instead of movies. I like that. few good books can be read in 1.5 hours, not sure why media has to be that way.
