Footnotes

1. “software developer” - for the lack of a better term for now. At the core I identify more as a researcher / (wannabe‑)inventor. I don't love software-development in itself. I find it frustrating too often and I think the status quo of programmer tools in 2019 is quite lacking (if you look at it from a historical perspective). But I'm highly interested in software development on this meta-level, i.e. understanding how we develop software, and human-computer interaction in general. In my opinion there are incredible productivity-gains achievable through better software-tools and since software is so deeply intertwined with the overall economy I think it's important to be aware of the fact that even seemingly tiny improvements can generate a lot of value. I'll put some writing up soon. Make sure to watch everything from Alan Kay and Bret Victor on YouTube.
