@chriskrycho The really annoying thing about math symbols isn't that they are is abstractions invented for paper and pencil. It is that so many of them are overloaded to mean different things in different places. Like the old joke: sin(x)/cos(x) = in/co
@chriskrycho At the end of the day, the 'visceral' patterns that the linked author shows are just a different set of abstract symbols. And those new set of symbols will seem more intuitive to some and less intuitive to others.
@chriskrycho This is an interesting question. I think my answer is close to yours. We have great patterns for modeling the world right now. We should work hard on adding new patterns. But this doesn't make the old patterns obsolete.
Three articles on the same blog in the same day: First [www.lawyersgunsmoneyblog.com] Second [www.lawyersgunsmoneyblog.com] third [www.lawyersgunsmoneyblog.com] I am confused about what the overall policy should be. If I want to be ethical and if I agree with the author, why is boycott reasonable in one case but not the other?
@johngordon For your larger point, I think this is a sign of our times. There is a vicious circle whereby online retail cannibalizes sales most of rarer items. So stores start to focus more on common goods and that pushes more people online for rare ones.
@currentswithin Hmm. There must be a bug with upgrades. I'll try to take a look soon and will add this to github. Feel free to email me at duerig at jonathonduerig dot com and then I can email you back when I have a bug fix.
@currentswithin Oh. I am starting to remember. There are the things you can buy to unlock upgrades. They are a list in order and each one opens the ability globally for you to upgrade any of your buildings of that type.
