I'm starting to play with my new ! I'll use this thread to keep track of some notes as I go.

P.S. If you're a #gemini person reading this and enjoying #smolZINE please consider contributing to a future issue. Write an opinion piece, create some ascii art, make up something totally new, invent a new section, I don't care! Community contributions I've gotten in the past have made for some of the best issues.

Following Andy Matuschak, I'm going to try keeping “evergreen notes”, in particular about my Swanson programming language work. They're mostly for me, but if you want to poke around, you can find them at gemini://

Rather than make new devices that will turn into e-waste after the event, we're recycling old price tags into networked conference badges.

The video of my talk is live! Check it out if you want a whirlwind tour of some of my favorite programming languages, and how some common programming patterns compare and contrast across them!

I finally wrote some words about no longer needing a laptop thanks to my phone and a lapdock

Doug Gregor will be explaining Swift's ABI stability machinery in a live stream at PLDI this week and if you are the sort of PL implementation pragmatics nerd who appreciates such things I guarantee your jaw will drop when you apprehend how much gruesome and thankless work is embedded in the thing. One of those move a mountain with a teaspoon sort of situations.

We are building an ecosystem of devices that respects your time, attention, and well-being. We want to hear from you!

Semantic Code will be at and next week! Come find us if you want to chat about the stuff we're doing at . Or the stuff we _should_ be doing at ! Or just to watch and I argue about baseball.

I’m lucky to get to think about a lot programming languages at work. Tomorrow I’m giving a talk at Craft Conf that’s a grand tour of how different PLs encourage different ways of thinking about and solving problems. Come check it out!

I am presenting more about our stack graphs work this Friday (noon PDT) at the UCSC Languages, Systems, and Data seminar.
