@stman Language. Every child should be able to use and learn technologies *completely* in their own language, then have a pathway into developing with at least a language that is substantially similar to their native language.

Until the day English is no longer a monopoly of our computational ideas, cyberspaces cannot truly realize the immense diversity of people.


@jiaming Theruran @theruran : So what's your feeling about this new contact ? Shall we spend more time discussing our research work with this contact ? I'm not quite convinced we should, unless this person does another try and this time doing some more efforts to answer the question a bit more convincingly.

@stman Your @ tag messed up so I just saw this come across my home feed.

@jiaming is new in the fedi and probably hasn't seen our conversations about cyberspace architectures. And I like his answer about language... every text symbol should be localized. It's like your sociologist friend's answer about a universal translator.

@jiaming - Rust won't solve the architectural problems we're discussing, but then, I haven't seen a language that does. I'm sure you recognize that too - that it's less bad than C/C++. The most promising ones are still new/experimental: F* (FStar) and Cur (on Racket).

Really what we need is systems design of a programming language. I'll have to spec out at least some of it for my research.
