@jusrin00 well ACTUALLY beginning of june @jusrin00 actually... may @jusrin00 actually april @noffle Yep! Need to do it out of curiosity not peer pressure or whatnot4. Forking and contributing to other open source projects becomes less scary, becomes normal3. We foster a culture of open source, so that a closed source library is frowned upon2. You discover new patterns, new coding styles, new languages, making you more flexible as a team player1. You learn how any system works, which helps debugging and productivityBest programming habit to develop: read the source (of anything).What if there would be a programming language with interchangeable syntax? ⬇

@tagmg It's not at all like that because with SSB you don't have global interconnections. @tagmg Two people with SSB software on their computer are like two people with walkie-talkies in their hands. @tagmg It's a very suitable analogy because the SSB software is like a walkie-talkie device, you possess the code o… @tagmg Can governments eavesdrop on every single walkie-talkie being used? @bahmutov @johnlindquist Hulk @tagmg Can real walkie-talkies prevent those? @ethereumweekly @getongab So if someone says "we will not allow those people" it means "I won't leave my pub server… @ethereumweekly @getongab And the role of pub servers: they are just "buffers" and sync centers.
