Played with the threepenny-gui today. Starting with no knowledge, I could create a simple browser based UI for a commandline application I am working on, all in Haskell.
is there a filter on mastodon that allows you to view only posts that are hilarious or art or code and never see anyone ever say politics words to you (except esoteric art-politics from people willing to espouse dumb beliefs because the propaganda looks cool)
Would pay for a duolingo-like application for learning Indian languages. Sad that no one deemed it not business worthy.
Finding new people to follow is hard for newbies on any platform. I'm hoping that #Trunk can help. What I need is people volunteering to be on lists so newbies can follow a bunch of people right away. Please reply to this post if you agree to be on a list. Feel free to suggest new lists that I haven't thought of. (Living in my own filter bubble, I know!) Please boost!
Also looking for more lists. 😃
People over Technology.

Google is warning that without privileging Chrome and Google Search above competitors on their platform they might have to do something reckless like charge licensing fees for Android.
Please oh please do it. Nothing is going to encourage vendors more from forking AOSP, or coming up with alternatives to Google Play.
Why is network programming so low level in #Haskell? Network programming looks like a breeze in Python's twisted library or in Go's net package.
May be more and more people should write real world haskell code than talking and writing only about the cool abstractions (not saying they are not important) possible in Haskell.

I have been (implicitly) taught to have empathy. I learned about the word empathy much later in my life (english not being my first language). Even then, I thought empathy and sympathy are one and the same!
I think having empathy makes one's life miserable! Suddenly you are being bothered by everything happening around you and helplessness kicks in. And there are lots of people trying to exploit you in that situation.
I am learning the lessons the hard way.
This writeup of my #LibrePlanet2018 keynote on BoingBoing is more eloquent and concise than the talk. Thanks to Cory for the awesome summary, reflections, and signal boost! https://boingboing.net/2018/06/21/digital-enclosure.html
Holy shit! Mes now compiles tinycc which compiles gcc!
The fully reproducible system is nearly upon us!
