@cricketgeek Sorry if I sound harsh. I loved my 360 and was surprised and disappointed w/my One experience. @cricketgeek tl;dr UI is too cluttered, common tasks are non-obvious, and lacks focus on core use cases. @cricketgeek 3) I bought the Xbox to play games and watch Netflix. The UI makes either of those tasks much too difficult. (3/3) @cricketgeek 2) requiring a separate MS account for controller #2 for co-op play is dumb. And completely unintuitive to find. (2/3) @cricketgeek 1) newly installed games appear below the fold on the home screen (1/3)Bought an Xbox One last Sunday. Returned it today. So many poor UI decisions I don't even know where to begin...

"Best way to encourage adoption of a new technology is to wildly over promise it's capabilities and impact" said no-one ever. #hololens @distobj Sure. I expected a project aiming to replace DNS & HTTP to have some solution or ideas towards one, though.Reading up on ipfs (https://t.co/mEShijPNB7). Seems interesting but am surprised the notion of content ownership is missing.

@jlouis666 tl;dr Programming languages have human factors concerns, too. @jlouis666 Ok? Elixir is closely identified with Erlang. Seems to me deviations from well known Erlang semantics should be covered in-depth. @jlouis666 Motivated by having recently written a fair bit of Elixir only to now discover I likely have some nice bugs to fix. @jlouis666 Sure. Again, not saying it's wrong just surprising. Should be called out more explicitly, imo.What are the odds that, when Ahmed goes to visit the President of the United States, his school will count it as an "unexcused absence"?
