Some background - Jesse Singal is a science journalist who frequently questions the validity of transgender people, fueling the fires of transphobic bigotry that is especially present under the trump administration.
Also a reminder that some Millennials graduated high school in the late 90’s, wracked up HECS debt, never managed to land a job due to shitty employment rates and are now heading towards 40 with no super and Muffin Break screaming they’re lazy because they won’t work for free
We're all either in our mid-20s or our 30s. We're not college kids who could use it for a 'learning experience', we have rent to pay, families to support now. (also even for college and high school kids unpaid work is trash)
Trillions of dollars... you know what else costs trillions of dollars over 10 years @nytclimate? Fossil fuel subsidies, climate-related natural disasters, health issues,environmental clean-up.And you know what’s more important than money? The continued survival of the human race. https://t.co/UoMiBoD8UX
If you are a software engineer, please learn how threads work including at the os level. It prevents things like vert.x from happening. It’s really thread pool but many people don’t realize it. Sure you have futures but what do they run on....
@silverwizard Nothing wrong with abstractions, but sure, knowing what they abstract certainly helps.
You don't replace Vert.x with just thread pools. It's a JS-like async model, for good and for bad, with explicit parallelism ("verticles"). The selling points of Vert.x are its support for several languages, that it does JS-like async, and its component model.
Its drawback is that it's weird and nobody uses it, not that futures model operations in other threads. It came out of a specific historical context when everybody seemed to be going to node.
I'm still curious to try it some day, just for fun.
But saying that Vert.x wouldn't exist if people knew threads is like saying actors or CSP or FBP wouldn't exist if people just knew about threads and functions and shared memory. We can disagree on what models and abstractions are suitable when, but generally they exist because they solved or aimed to solve someone's problem.
in my experience, people don't pay attention to their kernel though. Nor their hardware. Abstraction is only fine if you know what you're abstracting. You can't become an expert without learning WHY things happen.
Kicking off threads without knowing how to bind threads is a problem, and architecture should be about learning the system and using it for what it's good at.
So brigading can affect youtube creators financially even more!?

I listen to @jjdoddpodcast and @ttwasteland_ and both their bailiwicks include the story about The Defenders and Daredevil being used in a game by the Grandmaster, so I had the synopsis in my brain, but I couldn't find the Hub/Corey jokes to figure out I'd previously heard this
Ma soeur Elise a quitté son domicile de Strasbourg Mardi 19 Février à 15h heure française sans son portable après avoir tenu des propos incohérents et personne n'a de nouvelles d'elle depuis. Une déposition de disparition inquiétante a été faite à la police. Merci de RT. pic.twitter.com/kp2jZ6HtKT
But like - in the form of a bunch of anthropologists and archaeologists running into a village and starting to try to pull together information about how people live in it. Despite the fact that the village is inhabited, and the inhabitants speak English, and, in fact, even run courses on their culture, and have schools, and happily welcome new people who don't want to shit on the carpet
