@stevesi @migueldeicaza Google didnt do that with Android. Apple didn't do that with the original iPhone SDK. Devs could reuse existing libs @migueldeicaza @stevesi compatibility with .NET/Windows Phone was an explicit non-goal.

@IsForAt Medium is a kind of long form Twitter network with a news feed & follower model. Like Twitter many consume without being on network @joshelman @Medium or I can just stick to Twitter or FB for my news feed needs 😊 @joshelman @Medium the difference is Medium is competing with Twitter & FB of today not 5 years ago. Really unacceptable experience today @joshelman @Medium you can hide posts on FB & mute people on both services. The Medium experience is terribly user hostile. So πŸ’©Every time I use @Medium I see stuff so terribly self indulgent it hurts my head which I can't ignore because you can't manage your feed πŸ‘ŽπŸΎI just published β€œThe top 3 skills that separate great product managers from merely good ones” https://t.co/BfN7sni70J

@AmyDentata here's a thought experiment.would putting everyone in Detroit on social security have solved the problems after car makers left? @AmyDentata have you ever made minimum wage? Do you know anyone who wants to trade their current job for a minimum wage unemployment check? @AmyDentata have you been to a Trump or Sanders rally? People already angry and they haven't even traded their jobs for min wage checks yet @AmyDentata handing out minimum wage checks doesn't address inequality especially as to do so would require creating lots of new jobless 😊 @AmyDentata you called it "guillotine insurance" not me. 😊 What do u call giving people money so they don't riot & harm you then? πŸ€”The problem with basic income in a single tweet; bribing the poor with minimum wage welfare checks won't stop anger https://t.co/dadsCrDcVW
