@ajroach42 I read what you wrote but have not dug through all the responses, so please forgive me if I say something that's already been mentioned.
I think a lot of the problem is that the nature of the people programming computers has changed. Back in the 60s-80s, nearly everyone writing software was a tinkerer. Nowadays "programmers" are mass produced, and by and large they are neither tinkerers nor engineers; they are laborers.
Maybe analytics are part of why computers stayed slow even as they sped up?
Compare code with and without heavy logging. Compare keyboards with and without autocorrect. Hooks are easy into modular code; and very expensive. As in running verbose debug mode in production level expensive.

@spudboy I asked myself a similar question some time ago.
I learned that "profit" isn't a top concern in a cooperative. "Surplus" is used to refer to money left over after expenses. It is typical to focus on some social goals rather than an internal aspect like profit. Not to say that coops ignore internal stuff, but that it's not the top priority.
It's difficult to shift thinking from "profitable company" to "sustainable cooperative", but this is the core of cooperative thinking IMO.
Why is @NASA_TESS@twitter.com so exciting? I'm willing to bet #TESS will be the spacecraft that finds the first planet outside of our solar system that we later determine has life on it. As well as planets that could be considered theoretically, if not actually, habitable for humans.
Scientists can learn a surprising amount from a bit of transit data. The dip in brightness and size of the star gives them the size or radius of the planet. Time between transits gives them orbital period of the planet, and from that the average distance of planet from its star.
It is said that democracy seasons strong when it is under attack. #India will find a new liberalizing moment very soon.

What sort of rapists exist.
Interesting times. I'm starting to see bits and pieces of Twitter-style spam on here.
Advocates for the federated model believe the improved moderator/user ratio will keep things from getting out of hand. I'm on the fence.
Until now, the lack of spam has been mostly a result of this being a niche, obscure, tiny part of the Internet. Spamming it wasn't worth the effort.
As the Fediverse grows, theories will be tested! Fingers crossed.
The issue was taken up in the UN still the spineless government mechanism and the lord Prime Minister has refused to utter a word. #India has never been at a begged low. A girl child old was raped for eight days and tortured by a Hindu Priest and A police officer just to scare the Muslim tribe to leave the area.
#murder, #rape, public outcry and the big mouth keeps shut.
