Hate the fact that making cool things is hard. Imagine you don't like your text editor / operating system / whole internet and make a new better one overnight. Hell, I'd make my own literally everything if I could. I'd spend eternity doing it. But no, everything takes at least 10 years, and I only got one life to spend collaborating with people I can't control. Sorry to pollute the public space with this but I'm just really annoyed and I don't know how to deal with it.

Oh yeah. Text editors don't even make sense most of the time because you are typically dealing with highly structured data so a structural editor would make more sense. Also stuff like source code is just a serialization of some graphs so a graph editor would work better.

I've been working on a rather conceptually simple technology that has to do with dataflow programming, 10 years in the making I'm still not done (but close). I remember Alan Kay saying that breakthrough tech typically requires 7-10 years and given the mess we're in only a breakthrough tech can save us.

I think you're far from being the only one. I keep seeing stuff like this from time to time, which ranges from complaints/rants (example) to actua... show more

I dunno. I'm too busy with my day job right now to even properly think about it. Maybe in a couple of years I'll go with some part-time at-home kind of thing and actually start doing something.

I'm really interested into p2p stuff though. Already imagining my government not allowing me to host a server or buy a vps without providing cryptokeys. Not that I have the slightest idea of how it works, but I think there's job for everyone. Maybe make a better Sculltebutt or something.
