Software

Dear L,

I have been thinking a lot of software, how we write software, consume software and use it to augment our minds as people; The general approach, is fraught with danger and in worst cases, fatal. One flaw with creation of software is that the the largest chunk of complexity is abstracted away layers of arcane academia and mythical figures and collectives, from the professionals who are writing the software.

But it's not all bad. Software is truly "eating the world", and most of it is for good. Let's talk a bit about all that today, and one Tom Scott building a emoji keyboard! Well, it's not really about the keyboard, but the art of the "bodge".
