I learnt about #TempleOS after his death and I was very sad.
Davis had a unique perspective, none of us "sane people" could have. I guess we'll find gems everybody overlooked, in his code.
But all hackers are weird and we really need more hackers like him.
I hope that one day people will really understand and embrace Wirth's legacy.
We will have a better cybernetic world then.
I really like Fexl ( https://github.com/chkoreff/Fexl ) but I'm not sure it's quite what I want. Not quite data-friendly enough? It's doing very good things with syntax though - I love the ; for list pivot. Very very useful - it makes all the difference between "parenthesis spaghetti" and "actually readable code". PicoLisp can do something similar.
PicoLisp, Retro Forth, Fexl, Dialog, and maybe Red seem like a handful of languages that "get" the idea of radical simplicity. But there's room for more.

“The appropriate technology movement is attributed to E.F. Schumacher, a German-British economist … During the 1970s, he became widely known for his heterodox economic ideas that lambasted the mainstream emphasis on profit over human needs. In his best-known, 1973 book, Small is Beautiful: A Study of Economics as if People Mattered”
His book was titled WHAT? 🥰
Must read it. So sad to learn he died the year after I was born.
Nixon, al confronto, era un chierichetto.
Cos'è successo con l'app #Io di #PagoPA?

The science denial industry has deep roots - tobacco-cancer denial, lead paint/gas denial and other ancestral forms of commercial denial gave birth to modern forms of denial: anti-vax, anti-mask, "stop the steal" and, of course, climate denial.
The denial industry has a well-developed and constantly evolving playbook.
