No functional language survives first contact with the user.
This is part of what makes React, or even Elm, so appealing. The functional bits are super useful for say, describing UI elements. But while React handles updating okay, it struggles with updating dynamically from user input.* * The example here is a textbox, a button, and a div, and anything entered into the textbox shows up in the div when the button is pressed. JS, piece of cake. ```js document.querySelector("button").addEventListener("click", evt => { document.querySelector("textarea").textContent = document.querySelector("textarea").value; }); ``` React,* Elm, the examples aren't worth including here. They're too long. *You could golf a React example to a similar length as JS, because React *is* JS. You can access another component in the global scope and call .setState on it. But that's not idiomatic React, that's using React to render and writing JS same as you normally would. React, according to the docs and "good practice," state/information should never flow down, and should never flow sideways. This is an example designed to force React to flow state info sideways, but that's not something React is good at. Here's the React example: https://ourjseditor.com/program/VVr6PE. I haven't written one for Elm, that would take too long with my current knowledge of Elm.

Made some changes to the website, most visibly the date format. Explanation below
The purpose of including a date is to provide context. Rather than provide the time in the client's (your) timezone, I provide the time it was for me when I posted it, and my timezone. This means that if you want to figure out the time I posted it in your timezone, you can do that. But more importantly, if I post something at 2 a.m., you can see that it was 2 a.m. for me when I posted it. Unfortunately, the formatting on the date/time is bad. It's verbose and ugly. Trust me, I tried. I have spent 2 days trying to find a date+time format that is human readable and concise, and none exist. I'm trying to communicate too much information.

One of the things I tried to do with Thu was type-check at run time. The most interesting things about Julia is that it actually does this.
Type-checking at run-time is this thing that sounds really random and totally useless. In most compiled languages, the types are used to compile and then thrown away. Shouldn't there be a way to get benefit from types at runtime? This is one of the things that I noticed, and that frustrates me about OO languages. (A more detailed description of this problem can be found in the [Thu design document](https://ourjseditor.com/program/S5ShEy), under "Problem 2".) It was very cool to see Julia identify the same issue that I had identified. I watched, in particular, [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kc9HwsxE1OY) video (which unfortunately assumes knowledge of Julia). The solution that Julia implements is called Multiple Dispatch, and it's not specific to Julia. Multi-dispatch is similar to function overloading, except that instead of doing Java-style logic to decide the type of an object, the type is determined, and matched against, at run-time. It was also very cool to be able to compare my solution to that of multiple dispatch and Julia. I really like OOP, it's something that is relatively intuitive (as far as programming concepts go), and something that I've been using for a while. So Thu was definitely designed around OOP paradigms. While this has the obvious advantage of allowing you to write object oriented code, it means that the language probably wouldn't be able to take advantage of the looser type system. People would just end up writing OO code in Thu. Julia doesn't try to allow OO code. It seems to take after a functional language much more. Using functions instead of methods is what allows multiple dispatch to be powerful. You can write functions that match on the object type instead of defining those functions as a method of that object. So instead of `Integer.add()` and `Float.add()` you just call `add` and it does the right thing, switching behavior to handle different types correctly. In this way, multiple dispatch allows for code re-use. Lastly, I want to point out that I have never written so much as a line of Julia. This is purely a ~~academic~~ recreational exploration.

Mark Rober feels like he should be an Middle school science teacher. His stuff is entertaining and technically correct, but it's so shallow.
That's kind of what you have to do when you're doing science for a mass appeal audience. In some ways it's very similar to Mythbusters (which I love). Both understand the scientific method, understand the science behind what they're doing, and are doing original science. But their goal, first and foremost is to be entertaining. Since I can tell that, it makes the science less appealing. Mythbusters didn't have to compete with the internet; Mark Rober has to compete with Youtubers are doing much better science (if less fun).

I've been watching a lot of magic recently, just like clips on Youtube. It's really frustrating how non-existent explanations of tricks are.
Don't be thinking 'oh yeah that's the point of magic.' I know that obviously. But as someone who wants to know everything, I still want to know how the trick is done. I don't want to spoil it for other people, and I don't mind admitting that was fooled originally. But I would like to know how it's done. It's like a joke. When I hear a joke, I find it funny, I laugh, and then I remember the setup and the punch line. So I could tell that joke later, or if someone else later tries to tell me the joke. Most people when they hear a joke do not try to memorize it. In the same way, I would like to see the magic trick, be surprised and amazed, and then memorize how it it's done. And most magicians aren't supremacists, hiding their secrets, but they're performers. There's no reason for them to reveal the trick. And the people who develop magic tricks are trying to sell them. They don't want to tell you how they're done (unless you pay money).

Back in 2016ish, I wrote 6,000 words of a book. The plot hinged around a huge game. I found out about Jon Bois years later.
I understood when writing *TAOM* how a game could provide sufficient motivation to push a story forward, and could create conflict without necessitating evil. In many ways, this sort of conflict (that doesn't threaten the fate of the world) is much more similar to the kinds of conflicts normal people face in our every day lives. The characters can have emotional responses to the conflict of the game, and in some ways, these responses seem more real. Most people, and most authors, do not understand the way that games link to stories. They think that the value in a game is only in being interactive, or else in being physically impressive. What Jon Bois understands is that any time you have a game, you have a story. Jon Bois has dedicated his life to telling stories about games, historical, modern, and fictional. He's found incredible stories from seemingly inconsequential moments in sports, and he's used sports to tell incredible stories about humans. I didn't realize how similar this was to my own goals with *TAOM* until *20020*. *20020* is just a story about a fictional game, and I think this is the first time Jon has done that. *The Tim Tebow CFL Chronicles* went for humor, *17776* tried to do a lot with big themes of human nature, and with everyone else, Jon Bois has pretended to be informative, more than just a story. *I highly recommend reading 20020, a story about a game (that includes footballs, I don't want to mislead you by calling it a "football game"): https://www.sbnation.com/secret-base/21410129/20020*

Statistics depress me. I can handle failure. But quantifying my failure gets to me.
I don’t make things for other people, I make things for myself, for me to enjoy. And if I don’t think about other people’s reaction, then I’m fine. But if you tell me, ‘that thing you made, 2 people like it,’ that hurts. I just want people to like the things that I like and appreciate the things that I do. In my life I’ve probably made 10 things that have made more than 100 people happy, and they are all Khan Academy programs. I just don’t exist. I live in this bubble and I can make the bubble better for myself indefinitely, but I need validation from the outside world to confirm that what I’m doing matters. I once said, everything that you want in this life you have to fight for. And that applies to other people liking your content. You can’t just make cool things and expect other people to spontaneously like them. You have to force them upon people until they have to like them. You can’t expect people to subscribe to content they enjoy, you have to ask them to subscribe at the start of every video. You can’t expect people to come searching for content, you have to advertise it. And I don’t mean advertise so that they know about it, I mean market it as the greatest thing ever. You can’t just make something that people want to use. OurJSEditor has 13 stars on GitHub. I spent 4 years of my life for a dozen people to look at OJSE and go, ‘that’s neat’ and then never use the website again. I’ve considered adding a views counter to this website, but I’m sure it would only depress me. I add a little bit of friction by not using Twitter, and suddenly no one cares. In my mind I’m special, and people should care about the things that I make merely because I made them. I don’t like everything. I like few things. So in my mind, me liking something makes it special and other people appreciate it as well. ‘Oh this is the thing Matthias likes’ or ‘Oh I’m going to go play the game Matthias.’ I put a lot of work into it. I think my game is fun. That doesn’t matter. People aren’t going to play it if they don’t like it. For a lot of my life I do not share things that I like, as a general rule. Conversations just go better that way, 90% of the time. But there’s a point where that wears on me. Where it hurts to not be able to relate to others. And then even if someone expresses some interest, it’s not uncommon for me to jump at them and go off. The reply is usually ‘oh I’m not that much of a fan, IDK’ This is all very informative. I’m learning. Hopefully at some points in the future I can make something that people like. The stuff I’m saying here will not be true forever. I will eventually learn how to be happy about things other people like. But it hasn’t happened yet.

Norma McCorvey, the Roe from Roe v. Wade is a legend. It's impossible to describe her in an unbiased way because she was so chaotic.
Just when I'm like, it can't get more wack, it does. Summaries are like, 'Norma's first child was raised by Norma's mom' and then you read the story and Norma's mom kidnapped her granddaughter and tricked Norma into signing adoption papers. "At the age of 10, Norma robbed the till at a gas station and ran away with a girlfriend. They took a motel room in Oklahoma City, but were caught when a maid walked in on the two girls kissing and reported them to the police." What am I supposed to do with this information? I can't even get into the fact that the pro-life movement claims that she was pro-life and the pro-choice movement claims that she was pro-choice. She made many statements supporting both positions. She was lesbian, except for the 3 times she got pregnant, and the 20 years that she lived in the same house as her female best friend, platonically of course, because she was a Roman Catholic and had publicly denounced homosexuality.

Thinking about the Dream/Technoblade fight again following my binge of Mr. Beast's videos.
Knowing more about Mr. Beast allowed me to say with more confidence what I originally chalked up to poor editing. Mr. Beast is incredibly hungry for attention. He gives money to people because the reaction of the people, the attention he gets from it, is worth more to him that the money is. The lie Mr. Beast tells you is that his videos are about the contestants, the participants. The videos are about Mr. Beast. This isn't a problem, when the contestants are random people, that's perfectly fair. That's true for any gameshow—you're there for the host and the questions, who the contestants are doesn't matter. But when that one guy that was amazingly good shows up on Jeopardy and breaks the game, Jeopardy doesn't shut him down. Alex (the host, I think. I'm not looking things up), is good enough to roll with that. When Technoblade starts makes jokes in Mr. Beast's video, that gets edited out. And that's bad editing sure, but that's also Mr. Beast's fault (even if Mr. Beast isn't editing the video).

It is absolutely striking to compare Mr. Beast with Improv Everywhere.
So I've been super antisocial the last day or so, and I've been binge watching Mr. Beast. I don't like and am not subscribed to Mr. Beast, but some of his prompts, his ideas, are really good. The video style just ends up being more of "Mr. Beast REACTS to stranger that he gave $100" than anything else. And I don't enjoy those reaction-style videos, where a large portion of the content is really the emotional response of Jimmy and Chandler and Tyler, more so than content about what's going on. To me as a viewer, I don't care about the amount of money involved; the money is only there to elicit an emotional response from the people in the video. (Background for Improv Everywhere. They peaked in fricking 2008, 12 years ago, with a 37M view video. Sure, Mr. Beast gets millions of views on every video, but to get that many views 12 years ago is insanity. The iPhone had come out less than a year ago; Twitter less than two. People didn't have Youtube accounts so the video had like a handful of likes. They didn't build a dedicated audience, because that's something people didn't know how to do on Youtube in 2008.) On the other hand, Improv Everywhere does some similar prompts. They don't do giveaways. They do public skits/pranks but some portion of their content is the other people in public that are reacting to their stunt. But they very intentionally do not have a "face." If you did through their stuff you find the guy that leads it at the beginning of most of their videos, but I don't know his name, and cut all prep time out of some of the more recent ones. Since the stunt isn't giveaway-style, their stunts create audio/visual contrast to the normal. This gives you more time to react to it personally, and imagine what's like to be there. Your experience is much closer to the experience of someone randomly on the street, with the notable exception that you know that it's staged. Improv Everywhere treats their work like art. Their goal is to do a performance, whereas Mr. Beast is running a gameshow. If Mr. Beast treated his videos like IE does, he and his friends wouldn't have any lines, it would just be classical music over the reaction of someone getting money. I'm not trying to say that's why Mr. Beast is successful—Youtube success is a different question to content-style.

I have a couple albums in my music, but there are a couple more Jars of Clay albums I've never listened to. One of them is *If I Left the Zoo*, which I just started listening to today.

Everyone wants to be the next Martin Gardner. Everyone wants to do recreational mathematics.
You can't read Gardner, and make a Youtube video, and be the next Gardner. Gardner *invented* recreational mathematics. He found things Mathematics had never heard of and introduced them. I love Vi Hart and her content, and she introduced me to Gardner. Her following and reputation is deserved. But she's not, and shouldn't be, a famous mathematician. She's making mathematics accessible to the public, but she's not doing new math. The same goes for Numberphile, and 3Blue1Brown, and all the other math Youtube channels. My concern is that Recreational Mathematics is a "field" of math, and the topics discussed are the same topics that Gardner introduced years ago. Recreational mathematics should be a philosophy of math. Recreational math should be people *doing* math for the fun of it, and right now it is people *learning* about (or else teaching) math for the fun of it. Matt Parker is one of the few channels that gets this, and Matt makes a point of trying to do new math, for the fun of it. He has made videos responding to 'dumb' questions people have sent in. Questions that *don't matter*, but are still super important in furthering our understanding of math, and demonstrating the mathematic process.

I don't love Google, and I give them a hard time, but I will happily use their products if I have to.
Youtube is great, Google Sheets, Drive, are all good. But I'm not going to use 8.8.8.8 because there are other DNS providers that are just as fast or faster, and I don't need Google knowing what sites I'm visiting. I use DuckDuckGo because their results aren't noticeably worse than Google's. I don't like Material design, as I've said previously, which turns me off from some things. I will use Google Fonts (although I have gripes) and Google Translate is amazing. I use Apple Maps by default, but use Waze when I'm in a hurry, etc. Google is the big company, and I'm going to support smaller companies when I can. I like to know who is competing with Google, even if it would be easier to use the Google recommended service all the time. But if Google's product is better, I don't have a problem with using it.

Happening upon trigonometry at a young age, before it is taught, while special, is not impressive.
I asked my 6th grade math teacher for a function that would take a slope and return the number of degrees you would need to rotate a line in order to end up with that slope. (I needed it for a programming project.) She was unable to answer me. I remember looking at a staircase in my middle school, and thinking, this goes up at a slope of 1, and a 45º angle. What's the relationship between those numbers? It's like, congrats, you've stumbled upon one of the most important fields in math. It's impressive that I was wandering from the curriculum, but stumbling onto trig is relatively unsurprising.

The problem with Mastodon is that it doesn't provide standard flexibility between instances.
All mastodon instances are the same from a technological standpoint, differing only in moderation. And moderation variances are an advantage of the distributed web, sure, but the other advantages are that if I make my own website, I can disable likes or remove the character limit, for instance. As far as I know, I couldn't have forked Mastodon to make this website. And I think it would have been cool if I could have.

Compose screen still looks a little weird, like I'm just typing characters into the middle of an otherwise green page
and I have no idea when I'm going to hit 140 characters, but overall I'm very happy with the CSS. While this wasn't mobile-first design per-se, it was definitely designed with the idea that it was going to have to work well on mobile, so no sidebar or anything. I have like 10 color schemes I tried that are commented out in the CSS for you to play with, and I still don't love what I ended up with, but the 3-color CSS variable set up makes it addicting-ly easy to change. It will switch to a dark color scheme with an ugly yellow if your browser requests it, which Vivaldi apparently doesn't, so I'll have to work on that.
