It is hard for less experienced developers to appreciate how rarely architecting for future requirements / applications turns out net-positive.
As someone who ends up building a lot of architectural and infrastructure code, there's one thing I cannot emphasize enough: do the simplest thing that works. Do not try to imagine future requirements, or support ill-defined potential use cases. It will always change later.

When I've written papers for a journal, I've found that I get more valuable feedback from Twitter in one day than I got from the multi-month peer review process. This suggests that it might be wise to fundamentally change how papers are published and critiqued.

[3/3] Political fights are one thing, but the integrity of scientific publications is another, and it is, in my opinion, completely unacceptable that journalists have allowed major questions to go not just unanswered, but unasked, seemingly out of basic scientific illiteracy.

[2/3] Having read the original publication myself early on, and having looked at the uploaded genomic data, I expected to see investigations or questioning about these obvious issues, and yet it has been over a year and there has been no substantial engagement.

[1/3] Sadly, "journalists" covering the COVID origins debacle seem unaware of primary sources. This leads to an absence of pertinent questions in interviews. For example, why did Dr. Shi include deliberately misleading statements in her original SARS-CoV-2 paper?
As the debate over the virus origins raged last week, I picked up the phone & called the Wuhan scientist at the center of the lab leak theories. To my surprise, she picked up. More on what Dr. Shi Zhengli, the "Bat Woman," had to say in our profile. nytimes.com/2021/06/14/world…

A revealing, informative read that condenses all those feels about the Apple ecosystem into actual digestable words by @backlon. Just fascinating especially the digression about metaphors and carriers. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ theverge.com/2021/6/7/225214…

[1/3] Regarding NFTs, it is disheartening to see Silicon Valley being proud of creating artificial scarcity. Physical scarcity is something humanity fought to overcome for almost our entire history. Creating scarcity is never something anyone should ever be proud of.

Some stats for you all: - create react app + typescript - 50к lines of code + deps - ~800KiB bundle size - takes 2+ minutes to build on my 6-core 2.7 GHz Mac - that’s 1.8 TRILLION of CPU cycles. - 37000+ cycles per line of code - 2300 cycles per single BYTE of the result! WTF?

If your approach to a problem is too simple, you will soon notice, because your solution can't do what is needed. But if your approach is too complex, you may never notice that you have introduced unneeded complexity. So avoid complex approaches unless you *know* you need them.

The flexibility to add underscore separators in numeric literals (1_000_000), seems like an unalloyed good -- is there any argument against having them in every language? Also 0b prefix for binary literals.
