Software "engineer" by trade and study. #Space enthusiast, loves #scifi. Also looking to pivot away from pure software, and into #spacetech, #biotech or #cleantech. Or in any other way contribute something meaningful back to this world. #Emacs is my OS. I may have made a #nyancat for it once.

Random thought: a map isn't an app, it's a platform. Or at least it should be.
How's #OSM these days? If I wanted to use the same map, with the same view state, for navigation/pathfinding, exploring areas, planning routes, finding venues, displaying hydrological data, weather measurements, calculating height profiles and a bunch of other things - can I do that? Or make something that does that?
I hate appification of things. I want a software toolbox, not software experiences.

It's like when USA Today was like "to prove we need to sell your data to make a good website and convince you whiny Europeans that GDPR sucks we will serve you a version of your website that's bland and boring" except the site they served was lightweight, fast, and free of all the nagging bullshit news sites have nowadays

"I got into Starfleet to study moss."
"I joined up 'cause I love beaming."
"Thanks, Boimler. If we're going out, at least it's remembering that Starfleet isn't just about kicking enemy ass."
"Hey, I wish I could be on a ship that's exploring and solving science mysteries instead of nonstop fighting."
"Like on the D?"
"Damn, do I miss that ship."
"Enjoy it while you have it, Bradward."
Viewers, when the Fourth wall fell.
"I'm sorry, I gotta be honest. I didn't join Starfleet to get in phaser fights.
I signed up to explore, to be out in space making new discoveries and peaceful diplomatic solutions. That's boldly going.
And you know what? I'd love to be in a string quartet. I love that when Riker was on the Enterprise, he was out there jammin' on the trombone (...)
That stuff may not seem as cool as what you guys do, but it's Starfleet all the way."
