Imaginary problems, the root of bad software

quote [ Have you ever heard about those three engineers that figured out online banking is actually quite an easy problem ? They developed some flawless banking software from scratch, using a functional design methodology and memory safe languages, then started migrating major banks to their amazing infrastructure.

Probably not, because they don’t exist. ]

Whoa, almost posted a laggy Medium page again. Luckily, here's the original.

I'm really torn on Medium. On the one hand, I really hate how it feels like the last nail in the coffin of personal blogs. Uniformity permeates, and personality vanishes.

On the other hand, they're actually compensating content creators, which feels like a more ethical way to run such a site, and I want to encourage such practices. Any many good writers are publishing on Medium because of it.

Also, not a fan of the paywall. I dunno. Torn.
