Came across this and figured there are at least three people here who would love it: cachemonet.com/

I've been mulling writing a blog post comparing Google's amp4email proposal with Google Wave (as a follow-up to my critique last week, jamey.thesharps.us/2018/02/16/) which is fairly straightforward. But I want to propose that people should be using RSS/Atom to solve the problems that amp4email set out to tackle, and my fear is I don't know enough about how people who aren't me actually use email and maybe the Hacker News types are going to yell at me, or worse, blindly agree with me.

I wrote about the 2010 rise and fall of Google Wave, and lessons we can learn from their attempt to roll up email and chat and wikis into a single federated tool: jamey.thesharps.us/2018/02/16/

Gah, I can't decide between doing some actual project work or playing more Them's Fightin' Herds

There would be constant prototyping; the specification itself would be an 'executable prototype'.

This description is remarkably like what we'd now recognise as 'agile', but with formal specifications taking the place of unit tests.

I wrote a impl in Sinclair BASIC for no good reason using torinak.com/qaop 's ZX Spectrum emulator, so that's a thing now. (Source in plain text: wank.party/sdFh.txt )

If I ever offer to take time out of my schedule to help, and I mistakenly assume a level of familiarity you do not have, the appropriate response is to message me back with something to the effect of, "Hey, thanks for taking the time; but, I already know this. I'm having a specific problem with X, Y, and Z." This will give me more context on the problem, allowing me to alter my explanations accordingly.

Unbelievable how incredibly ungrateful people can be.

Pro-tip: if you're asking for help on a topic, and you're obviously experienced (from context) on said topic, and someone responds with a mistaken assumption giving a strategy on how to solve your specific problem, do NOT fucking behave like a spoiled 5-year old brat in response.

I have **zero** patience for brats.

Information Society is good programming music

Writing design docs for a project is pretty relaxing. Trying out github.com/vitiral/artifact to manage them and it's been nice so far.
