Programming makes me think that people value the things they do because they were hard, not because they were useful. Once I master the hard thing, I'm proud of myself and find it easy to forget that perhaps that damn thing should not have been so hard in the first place. Probably true for a lot of human activities.
Stuff should simply be easier, that is all.

Yesterday on my way home I have heard the best podcast episode in a long time: the episode of The History of Philosophy where the podcaster interviews his twin brother on Material Intelligence. If you care about human bodies interacting with physical objects to make things, and you like Philosophy, perhaps that's a good episode to listen to, even if you don't like the History of Philosophy.

@kensanata Sounds interesting! Do you have a link or a more specific title of the episode?

@dredmorbius I was convinced for the longest time that he was prancing is listeners but no – such a wonderful podcast. πŸ˜€πŸ‘Œ
