    Hi EUP-ers! I was thinking about what are my personal fundamental drivers behind what I'm doing in Onex and the Object Network. I decided it was something like "bringing the empowerment we techies get from open source, open standards, etc, to non-techies". Open tech empowers us techies to do whatever we want, and to share that freely with others, not having to ask anyone first. Open tech was driven by an innate urge to break free from corporate bullshit and to empower the community. So what is available as part of some equivalent movement for non-techies, that empowers them and frees them from the Big Corps (and Big Govs)? Well, we have blockchains, IPFS, LBRY, Bittorrent, etc: these offer the promise to non-techies that they don't have to worry about censorship, taxes, copyright, surveillance, etc.. 😄 And we have classic EUP such as spreadsheets: no-one has to ask the Corporate Blob for approval to play with data and write some simple processing. And anything that enables user configuration, customisation, etc. So that's where I'm at with my fundamental drivers for my work. I was wondering if this resonates with anyone else here?

    What are some examples of great domain-specific languages that are geared towards end users? I’m thinking about DSLs that are almost like a replacement for a standard app. Feel free to interpret DSLs loosely for this, they can have a GUI associated with them, but the end-user has to be able to access the DSL to have fuller/faster control over the app.

    OK, here's a question I am being asked a lot but I have no ready answer but always trying to come up with answers on the fly: why do we need end user programming? I mean, I am totally convinced that democratizing coding is super important and will change the world. But when I talk to "normal people" they don't seem to feel the need. I always have trouble to come up with examples where creating and running code is useful, instead of just downloading an app or whatever.
