    How would you render source code if you weren't tied to a 2D grid of monospace characters? I'd probably start by using a proportional font for all words in the code. I posted an example of this here: https://mobile.twitter.com/FKohlgrueber/status/1156152950093426688 After getting used to it, I feel like it's easier to scan the code in that representation. What do you think?

    I was planning on posting this but @Kartik Agaram query for "sourceless programming" is a good reason. Please check out (still in Beta) www.kodou.io for an example of an API-first programming model with no downloaded source or dependencies. The Documentation page describes it. We are looking for feedback. Accounts only by request at this time.

    Are you aware of a tool (I imagine something like a jest plugin) where you can specify a unit test with all the inputs and their possible values and add logical rules to be able to omit some of the input permutations based on the given logical rule. The remaining set of permutations to test might be represented in a table (and I'd be prompted to fill in all these tests.) That does not seem hard to do at all, but maybe there is something out there. + is there any tool which does something similar under the hold? Maybe a proof assistant when we are specifying our types? Dunno it just seems there must be something and I can't join the dots.

    @stevekrouse (or anyone more well read on this than me), I enjoyed https://futureofcoding.org/essays/dctp.html but I got tripped up on the part I snipped below. Is there any reason why you chose to sequence the buttons instead of expanding the domain of

    does anyone know of any radical paradigms for navigating the web? eg: not treating web pages like documents, not treating history as mostly ephemeral, facilitating collection or breadth-first search, weird zooming user interfaces, etc?

    The page-centric concept of the web (from a browser standpoint) is a bit strange to begin with, if you think about it. I think it would make sense if instead of "loading a page", you loaded a script, which then programmatically creates content. And then, why should loading something else have to make that go away? Perhaps loading the same thing twice would just give you two copies of it, just like if you run the same program twice or open the same file twice. That would also give "history" a different connotation
