There are some times where you might want convergent machines. They aren't as many as the zeitgeist currently thinks.
@bhaugen @humanetech @af @gargron There are really two versions of decentralization: "convergent decentralization", which results in multiple people participating convergently in the same machine. If this is the "only" machine, then it can be snarkily called "decentralized centralization"
The other kind is "decentralized communicating encapsulated objects", and it's what the fediverse does by and large and also CapTP.
@JordiGH Thanks! Yeah... that wasn't so obvious to me until I transitioned, and then it became super obvious, lol
That's me and my sis Elizabeth in that last photo who has thankfully always been nice and supportive of me during my transition, as has my whole family really. I feel quite fortunate there.
@emacsomancer or rather CPS generation
But see wip-ijp-js convo on guix-devel.... I mentored a student a few years ago who wrote code that did just this (well, except it wrote to js directly)
@emacsomancer that said, it will be possible to transpile scheme to james to jessie, in which case you wlil be able to get cons back
