Why I Just Asked My Students To Put Their Laptops Away
Bizarre from him.
I can't imagine any situation where I wasn't allowed to take notes. Pointless.
Though having Jo's stupid clicky laptop next to me would drive me nuts. But an ipad would be fine.

Beyond Agile: the Studio Model
i dont disagree with the studio model, but i disagree with most of his arguments for it.
he iwlfully misinterprets fail fast.
the empahsis regardless of methodology shpuld be on doing the work— understanding the problem, and designig. a solution for it, not on stuffing sround with methodology. methodlology applied blindly rather thsn as reminder to think is always a problrm.

Why OO Sucks by Joe Armstrong
If a language technology is so bad that it creates a new industry to solve problems of its own making then it must be a good idea for the guys who want to make money.

Object-Oriented Programming — The Trillion Dollar Disaster
amusing; but really just shows that bad programmers make bad programs. Problem with oop is you're in the middle of lots of other peoples' abstractions.

Why it’s as hard to escape an echo chamber as it is to flee a cult | Aeon Essays
some good stuff herr, but notion of independent rational thinker is silky— people are socially constructed and maintained, ties to othere are foundational and constituative. reliance and trust isnt only intellectual. clear thinking is rare. and i still think telos is more importsnt thsn foundstion— where are you trying to go, are we headed in the same direction?

Modular synthesis intro, part 2: Don't do it! - North Coast Synthesis Ltd.
But that's part of the attraction for me. My modular synth arguably isn't really a musical instrument, even if I call it one. It's really a toy that makes a noise. I have fun playing with the knobs and the wires and hanging around with other people who do the same, and the noise that it happens to make isn't really the point. I think that many modular hobbyists feel the same way. It's not really about making music in the first place, so the fact that the modular isn't the most efficient way to make music, doesn't matter.
