Distributed Systems and the End of the API
While the lack of clearly identifiable, defined semantics is problematic even in the case of non-networked, non-distributed, single-process context programming, it is near-fatal when you are working on a networked, distributed system: you must take on the job of identifying and understanding those semantics yourself, and situating your use of APIs such that they account for the failure modes implied by the network and other aspects of the distributed system you’re building.
In both contexts, what we find to be confusing and error prone — e.g. userland goto, manual memory allocation, and in-place mutation of objects in the case of programming languages, and things like accommodating network failure modes and implementing appropriate consensus mechanisms and consistency levels in distributed systems — are exactly the things that we need to abstract away from in day-to-day concerns in order to make progress.
Mr. Lamport’s work and this inclination to reach for provable approaches to problems grounds modern research in distributed systems. While much of what we do in software might be charitably characterized as engineering , there is some comfort to be had that a thoughtful approach to distributed systems problems should flow from a more reliable basis than even the most well-designed library, framework, or language.
Given my background with and habituation to functional programming and immutable data structures, I think of this constraint as being similar: once convinced of their utility, you generally try to maximize the footprint of the "sane" world that uses pure functions operating over immutable data structures, and minimize the surface area of its interaction with the often quite incomprehensible world of effects and in-place mutation.

The evolution of antisocial punishment in optional public goods games | Nature Communications
It's possible to accidentally evolve norms which are detrimental to large efficient societies.

---

Cooperation, where one individual incurs a cost to help another, is a fundamental building block of the natural world and human society. It has been suggested that costly punishment can promote the evolution of cooperation, with the threat of punishment deterring free-riders. Recent experiments, however, have revealed the existence of 'antisocial' punishment, where non-cooperators punish cooperators. While various theoretical models find that punishment can promote the evolution of cooperation, these models a priori exclude the possibility of antisocial punishment. Here we extend the standard theory of optional public goods games to include the full set of punishment strategies. We find that punishment no longer increases cooperation, and that selection favours substantial levels of antisocial punishment for a wide range of parameters. Furthermore, we conduct behavioural experiments, showing results consistent with our model predictions. As opposed to an altruistic act that promotes cooperation, punishment is mostly a self-interested tool for protecting oneself against potential competitors.
