    @jws Core Data isn't that hard for simple things. It has some nice mechanisms for version migrations, and the ability to perform paged fetches is very cool. But it shouldn't be at the center because of those niceties. Serialization comes last.

      @jws Whoa, it's Uncle Bob! Great rant.

        @muncman Yeah, I always look for a conventional AC outlet and plug my own brick into it. Not gonna plug my device into a random USB socket! Also, we got a phishing email at work as part of security practices testing. Co-worker fell for it.

          @keita Oh. Those people don't update their phones. Ever.

            @keita iPhone? Connect to iTunes via USB.

              @keita Heheheh. That's the real reason you feel so bad about it! Just embrace her productive/organizational superiority :-P

                @keita Moving sucks. *SUCKS*. And it would completely ruin my productivity, which is why I plan on using movers the next time I do, and possibly taking time off around it.

                  @cgiffard Mashups went corporate. Instead of third parties blending multiple open data sources/feeds, they're now licensed terms between corporations desperately searching for resonance. It was the unexpected nature of early mashups that made them. @jws

                    @clarkgoble That's part of why I think now is a fertile time to reexamine this idea on the desktop: mass computing has moved to mobile, the desktop could re-focus on productivity, and sustaining specialty niches there charge for plugins just fine. @jws

                      @clarkgoble I think ActiveX and web mashups are both excellent evolutionary waypoint examples of this notion. The more fundamental limitation on all prior efforts, IMO, has been capitalism/profitability, as loss of branding erodes perceived value. @jws

                        @joanna Thanks! Didn't get as much hacking in as I'd hoped, but I got a ton of organization done, which is just as important—perhaps more so, long term.

                          Promised myself some Swift hacking tonight, so… adieu until the morrow!

                            @cgiffard @lechindianer Do note that the DualShock 4 dongle only supports *one* controller… :-/

                              @jws Much as our other conversation pointed out that OLE/OpenDoc cross-talk infrastructure became moot once the internet dominated, so eventually applications themselves. Thus my interest in a post-application-silo OS, especially for *work*.

                                @jws The thing is, it's only a matter of time until this is equally true of all device-local (what we used to call "shrinkwrapped") software.

                                  @jnm LOL! My son loves Dora. LOVES her. And few things make him happier than yelling "Swiper, no swiping!" and "Where are we going? <insert place here>!" at the top of his considerable lungs! Somehow, I'm OK with this. @jws

                                    @clarkgoble As long as you are able to exchange the *results* of your work with others, then your workflows can be as different from theirs as you want/need. @johngordon

                                      @clarkgoble I'm going to finish that essay you linked before I say any more, but I did want to add that the internet actually creates the most opportunity for these systems, because they de-prioritized on-device binary compatibility. @johngordon

                                        @keita Aye, and I fully intend to. And when I say "build," I don't just mean "assemble"… ;-)
