    @Bill Seitz you maintain a wiki notebook. What do you think of Zettelkästen? https://blog.jethro.dev/posts/how_to_take_smart_notes_org https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22341518#22342278

    I really like this post for the deep thinking on precisely where a type system should be nominal vs structural: http://pling.jondgoodwin.com/post/searching-for-quarks

    I noticed that when refactoring you start building a stack of tasks that appear as you go along, sometimes you follow each task as it comes (breadth first) and some times you take notes or try to remember the next tasks to tackle later (depth first), is this specific to the way we code or general to coding (and maybe general to other activities), if so, what kind of tools would help keeping track of those task stacks (say it 10 times fast 😛), or being a little bit more ambitious, what would those tools look like if they were builtin into our programming environments. Another interesting facts is that the activity as a whole is not reflected in my commits, I could create a branch and merge it to signal a complete activity, but each commit and their relations do not reflect the reason of the changes.

    Here's a thread about the sort of "invisible" design work that goes into making a video game feel wonderful to play. I can confidently say that visual programming languages would benefit tremendously from this sort of UI tuning, and that this effort is almost never spent. You see hints of it in Autodesk visual data manipulation tools (for shading and such), Houdini, Max/MSP (and not Pure Data, for reasons that will become immediately apparent when you hear my interview with Miller Puckette), and almost nowhere else. This sort of polish is the GUI equivalent of Elm's effort to have enviably good error messages. https://twitter.com/MattThorson/status/1238338574220546049

    Don't want to bring the topic per se to FoC, but we may say that the lack of tools may increase the effect of crisis like this one, I'm impressed (in the wrong way) by the fact that one of the most important newspapers of Germany, with maybe the news of the decade going for weeks already is only able to provide these visualizations: https://www.zeit.de/wissen/gesundheit/2020-03/coronavirus-deutschland-infektionen-faelle-verbreitung-epidemie-karte
