@rysiek @jordyd One of my math professors once provided a fascinating proof of symbolic contextuality - that even within a set of related statements, one can have contradictory definitions of the same term if they are contextually separate. It helped justify a lot of "what do you mean by X, exactly?" questions thereafter. (It's been well over a decade so I can't remember any details...)
@lambdatronic this makes me want to know what Gemini is, such that I might make a server for it in Jai.
@ratamacue yes. That also breaks out of the thing I'm pointing to about including the logic rather than the interface. I guess I'm saying I prefer assimilate to graft. Borg > Vidiians.
@ratamacue ahh! I see. I'm not actually complaining about calling things good intent-revealing names, note. I'm more complaining about the line of thinking that leads people to doing it in that particular way.
@ratamacue I've worked on engineering teams with well educated, but somewhat junior programmers ─ which I think is similar. I'm not sure the goal of a collective working group should be to "reveal the interns"; but perhaps I'm missing your point?
The software industry has engendered a culture of distracted programmers using bad tools to solve problems they don’t have time to fully understand. In this essay, I try to explore why. https://medium.com/@smarimc/when-programming-became-a-chore-a0be2b9919c0
@anahata I currently own a share of 7 planes and almost got convinced to buy a helicopter with some friends a while back. I'm nowhere near wealthy enough for this kind of thing. 😅
@whvholst I have seen some theme/trope classifications, but no pure taxonomy. It's perhaps more directly useful to use tags than trying to enforce a specific data structure. "4X", "RTS", "Shootemup", "RPG" all are meaningful. It would do games that cover multiple styles a disservice to try to pretend they must be in a tree.
I spent a few hours looking at Godot Game Engine yesterday. It's quite satisfying in terms of usability, design language and clarity. I do have concerns about GDScript's cache efficiency and such. But overall, it's a nice thing to play with as a contrast to Unity. Not that I'm a game developer or anything. Just foolin' around.
On the bright side, my playlist is awesome
