What Agoric has figured out is that the former can just be a node on the latter. See the first five minutes of youtube.com/watch?v=7u0yVJjBBe

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.

One southern gentleman asked asked how I knew the bride & groom, I said I was the bride's cousin, he nodded as if no big deal, and then I said here's my wife @mlemweb and he did a double take, like obviously he hadn't already read me as queer since the lesbian part surprised him

@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.

Had my first time out at a significant gathering since I transitioned. A family wedding in Kansas... and I was really nervous.

But actually people were great. It was a good experience. People were respectful who knew me before. And I think I passed for most who didn't?

@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 yes... in particular, CPS will be required if supporting multiple value return

@emacsomancer as such it can be an ok intermediate pass for something that wasnts to convert a more sensible lisp to javascript

@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

james is meant to be a more "close to javascript" representation, so the code it spits out looks mostly like hand-written js

it's possible this clip inspired the name of the project youtube.com/watch?v=QFhgbpt7eK

The lisp is this weird hybrid between Scheme and Clojure and Javascript because I am terrible

Show thread

Making a little lisp that can transpile into a cleaner subset of javascript known as "Jessie"

The project is called "Team Rockit" and the lisp is called "James"; James transpiles into Jessie

What if James and Jessie were the same person the whole time you don't know
