@boblmartens I always thought modern tablets were designed for couches.
…I also think desks are fundamentally not ergonomic. …Maybe it's just my body that's not ergonomic.
@ataraxia937 sometimes one simply cannot help it though.
Do you already now https://tosdr.org/? “I have read and agree to the Terms” is the biggest lie on the web. We [terms of service: didn't read] aim to fix that.
@cuchaz I am indeed into that sort of thing. Will check it out in the near future.
@noiob I can't. I think very many people are changed permanently by their knowledge and have difficulty seeing what life is like for others without it.
@noiob true for most tools most of the time (by far, I'm sure, for you in particular) but can you even clearly remember not understanding what RAM is?
@noiob interesting. I'm really not sure about that. I think it's a snobby attitude from coders who don't know what it's like not to write scripts in their spare time.
@noiob should. Truth is, everyone runs into a reason to know more eventually.
@noiob so I heard, but … I mean … shouldn't we, as a country or beyond, actually be teaching people to code? Software runs everything. Program or be programmed, right? Freedom in a tech-based world is enabled by computer literacy.
@deshipu good one.
@deshipu I'm actually deeply curious where that line should be drawn between coding and … the rest of it
@deshipu okay, well that list is a mess, but I think you are talking about business investments. Sure ed-tech is a thing. I meant investment from government in the future of the country.
Somehow the #learntocode meme passed me by. What's your take on that?
Personally, I see the need for high level programming environments, and I have for a long time. Such a thing would certainly boost the economy and make learning to code a reasonable goal for a whole lot more people. By definition.
@deshipu well, paying the teachers would be a great start, but we need investment in education across the board.
@rvk I imagine this stuff is some combination of generative and manual work? Is there a vision?
@rvk hmm what is this?
@ashwinvis I don't know, but good luck 👍🏻
