Re: Taking a break to focus on Unison - http://pchiusano.github.io/2015-01...
"Very curious to see what you come up with, as someone with a similar project (http://github.com/akkartik/mu) albeit with slightly different goals and focus (http://akkartik.name/about)." - Kartik Agaram
Re: On reading the source code, not the docs - http://jvns.ca/blog...
"I actually spend a lot of time thinking about #4. I don't think it's about unknown unknowns at all. All code was written with some intention, and the author knew his/her intention (at least at the time). It's a failure of our representation of programs that we're unable to capture this knowledge, and it gets more and more critical the further down the stack you go, to the parts that don't change or get rewritten often. Further elaboration on the problem: http://akkartik.name/about. At the bottom, I mention a paper by Peter Naur that you might find interesting, since it talks about how we can't truly understand somebody else's code without talking to them. He seems to treat it as an insurmountable constraint, while I try to surmount it. My current solution sketch: http://github.com/akkartik/mu." - Kartik Agaram

"No, not really since I don't actually like C++ the language. Too many gotchas for my taste. I use just a few conveniences from it, but I'm still required to use the C++ compiler since I can't unbundle just the features I trust. What I like about this subreddit is the emphasis on minimalism, which isn't always available on /r/cpp." - Kartik Agaram
