On Disney+ there is a new documentary series called "Light & Magic" about the beginnings of ILM from the original "Star Wars" movie and it looks like it goes through the beginning of the digital age.

It's fascinating.

Very thoughtful and undogmatic piece on Emacs, Neovim, VS Code, and what we value in (Approachability, Doing one thing well, Editing efficiency, Extensibility, Freedom...)

If you're down to answer, what kind of phone do you currently have?

A little known #neovim plugin to show diagnostics (for instance, LSP errors) on full lines, instead of the default merging of all errors at the end of a line.
I use it behind a toggle, to switch back and forth with the default behavior, as sometimes rust-analyser has a lot to say!

What does a #Rust developer say to another Rust developer, after bumping into them at a conference?

"Long time no C!"

(thank you, thank you, I'm here all week!)

"Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it."

When deciding for the programming language to use for a project, do you take climate impact into account?

Some notes on the energy efficiency of programming languages in my blog.

The research research data it's based on has circulated quite a bit, yet I wonder whether it has become common knowledge yet.

I think there's something masochistic in using C and C++ nowadays.

C'mon, people, use Rust already;)

To anyone who says "it's just summer"... here's NASA's climate spiral👇
