As I progress in my rust journey, I find myself wondering whether "rust" is a better prototyping language than X. Let's say X is python. There are programs permissible in Python that are inexpressible in rust. Inexpressible, due to races. However, a design that works in rust, is trivially translated to Python. The *design* is determined by prototyping, is my point.
OpenAI is not open, it is exclusive:
OpenAI is giving Microsoft exclusive access to its GPT-3 language model
#GPT3 #OpenAI #AI #Microsoft
wow: #curl is moving to a RustTLS backend – initially opt-in, but the plan is to make it the default eventually. https://www.abetterinternet.org/post/memory-safe-curl/
I did *not* see that coming. I thought we might one day get a #rust alternative to curl, but curl itself embracing Rust is quite the vote of confidence.

This is EPIC. What if… other guitarists had soloed in “Stairway to Heaven”?
Hey folks - @microsoft is apparently open to the idea of adding Python support to their new WinUI3 GUI library. If you'd be interested in seeing this, let them know! https://github.com/microsoft/microsoft-ui-xaml/issues/3364 https://twitter.com/WindowsDocs/status/1311342293891325954
A thing I don't see talked about much is the loneliness of seniority. It's hard to find people to bounce ideas off of, especially being back at a tiny company. Community Slacks are nice but when you're off in weird niche land, peers are hard to find and it's sad.
Gonna re-emphasize that orca is super cool and any nerds interested in music production should start messing around with it ASAP
