Oxide and Friends Twitter Space: May 17, 2021
golang asserts and the PLATO terminal
We’ve been holding a Twitter Space weekly on Mondays at 5p for about an hour. In addition to Bryan Cantrill and Adam Leventhal, speakers included Adam Jacob, Matt Ranney, Nima Johari, Antranig Vartanian, Joshua Clulow, Tom Lyon, and Bob Mader (and thanks to Jeremy Morris for catching Bob’s profile!).
(Did we miss your name and/or get it wrong? Drop a PR!)
We recorded the space, but we had some challenges, and we lost the recording when the first Twitter Space died at around 5:30p. We recorded the second half though; the recording is here.
Some of the topics we hit on, in the order that we hit them:
- Khan Academy blog entry on Go
- Adam’s blog entry, I Love Go, I Hate Go > I found novelty in the strictures, but objected to some of the specifics
- [@2:40](https://youtu.be/8tJEwCvZWsg?t=160) Go’s assertion assertion
- The Elm Language
- [@4:40](https://youtu.be/8tJEwCvZWsg?t=280) Lionizing Unix > 7th edition is amazing, incredible, a break through.. > and it’s also kind of a shitty engineering artifact that needed a lot of work.
- [@6:32](https://youtu.be/8tJEwCvZWsg?t=392) Core dumps
- [@7:03](https://youtu.be/8tJEwCvZWsg?t=423) Impromptu PSA:

- [@20:05](https://youtu.be/8tJEwCvZWsg?t=1205) Write your own lessons in TUTOR
- [@23:12](https://youtu.be/8tJEwCvZWsg?t=1392) Dr. David Gräper’s Grapenotes started in 1977
- Xerox Alto computer
