This is a wonderful angry rant about Unix

I agree that text files are a terrible data-transfer convention and we can, must, do much better.

It's just that... most binary file formats I've seen have the life expectancy of mayflies. They're just.... data mulchers with a black hole attached.

If your data goes into a binary file, chances are very good that you're never getting it out again once that app / db / library that created it goes out of fashion.

Hmm, this is interesting

I love that there are so many of us thinking deeply, if weirdly, about how to 'reboot computing'.

We all have different ideas and sometimes those ideas conflict on the details, but there's a substantial amount of agreement about roughly what's wrong with the Unix model of computing we've inherited, *very roughly* what we'd like, and .... a pleasing amount of vagueness about the details because we haven't yet built it.

I keep looking for a new laptop, but I just can't part with my excruciatingly slow and short-battery-lifed Sony Vaio P. It may be shite in so many ways, but it's small and light like you wouldn't believe, and it has a full keyboard. It's fast enough to remote into my work machines. So… why do I need to spend a bunch of money on something new?

I would kill for something faster or with better battery in the same form factor, but I will never lug around a full size laptop. Even 11" laptops just don't seem worth the money to me.
