Software disenchantment

Translations: French Italian Portuguese Russian Spanish

I’ve been programming for 15 years now. Recently our industry’s lack of care for efficiency, simplicity, and excellence started really getting to me, to the point of me getting depressed by my own career and the IT in general.

Modern cars work, let’s say for the sake of argument, at 98% of what’s physically possible with the current engine design. Modern buildings use just enough material to fulfill their function and stay safe under the given conditions. All planes converged to the optimal size/form/l

Ask HN: Which abandoned proprietary software would you resurrect?


Hi all! Sometimes the best days seem to be behind us, even in software development.

What closed-source, proprietary software that you once loved is not being developed/enhanced any more? What more features would you like to have it in the future? Would you pay for it to be resurrected?

All human beings, all persons who reach adulthood in the world today are programmed biocomputers. None of us can escape our own nature as programmable entities. Literally, each of us may be our programs, nothing more, nothing less.
Despite the great varieties of programs available, most of us have a limited set of programs. Some of these are built in. In the simpler forms of life the programs were mostly built in from genetic codes to fully formed adultly reproducing organisms. The patterns of function, of actionreaction were determined by necessities of survival, of adaptation to slow environmental changes and of passing on the code to descendants.
Eventually the cerebral cortex appeared as an expanding new highlevel computer controlling the structurally lower levels of the nervous system, the lower builtin programs. For the first time learning and its faster adaptation to a rapidly changing environment began to appear. Further, as this new cortex expanded over several millions of years, a critical size cortex was reached. At this level of structure, a new capabi

Screenreader ausprobiert


Ich habe mir Heute mal die Demo vom Screenreader Jaws von Freedom Scientific installiert. Warum macht man so etwas? Ganz einfach, es gibt auf Mastodon einige Nutzer die entweder sehr schlecht oder gar nicht sehen können. Klar gibt es die nicht nur dort aber Ich habe aber den Eindruck das man unter anderem auf Mastodon schneller mit Ihnen in Kontakt kommt.

Ich wollte was wissen und zwar wie hören sich die Toots von sehenden Menschen an, die ganz selbstverständlich mit Emojis, Sonderzeichen und was auch immer „verziert“ werden.

Kurze Antwort, fürchterlich!

Auch irgendwelche Bildchen und Zeichen, links und rechts neben den Nutzernamen, sind einfach grauenhaft. Toots ohne Bildbeschreibung? Tja, wenn man sehen kann kein Problem aber wenn nicht? Nun, das kann sich jeder bestimmt denken.

Es liegt mir fern jemanden vorzuschreiben wie und was man im Netz schreiben soll aber vielleicht kann man hin und wieder darüber nachdenken wie sich der eigene Post in einem Screenreader anhören k... show more
