re A deep dive into APL (Hacker News)
rebootthesystem on Mar 28, 2017

I am blown away to see how frequently APL seems to come up on HN these days, a language I used professionally for over ten years.
As much as I love it I have to say one of the issues with APL is that it was way ahead of it's time. Because of that it struggled to run on computers of that era.

Life is Short
Life is short, as everyone knows. When I was a kid I used to wonder about this. Is life actually short, or are we really complaining about its finiteness? Would we be just as likely to feel life was short if we lived 10 times as long?

Y Combinator's First Batch: Where Are They Now?
so Graham decided then to put together what would become a “summer camp for startups.”

After giving the applicants just 10 days to submit, Graham received an amazing 227 applications

The fact that the idea for Reddit didn’t even come from Steve and Alexis (it was Paul’s idea) might be a glimpse into what makes the YC program so special.

Especially when your idea fails, as happened with memamp founder Chris Slowe.

That summer Google released their own Desktop Search solution. Not only that, but Apple announced their intention to build and add Spotlight to their next OS X release. Memamp pressed on, but it was too much, especially with the difficulties of trying to write a multi-platform desktop app.

“I was reddit’s first employee about 2 months later,” Chris tells me. Memamp may have been dead, but things were looking up.

Perhaps realizing how out of their depth they were, the TextPayMe team began working for Amazon a year after the Founders Program, as TextPayMe became part of Amazon Payments.
