Really pisses me off my elderly mom’s bank keeps pressuring her to get their app (so they can get free tracking info from her and won’t have to pay 10cents for the customer service worker that can answer her questions over the phone)

Surveillance scoring alive and well. Wonder what my behavior during the pandemic is doing to these metrics. chron.com/opinion/article/Data

@bulkington and what I still don’t get but would be illuminating is a basic, hand wavy look at what the software is doing to the hardware

@bulkington Cool!
1) how the same language can have multiple ways to do the same thing
2) how a list of 100 super simple commands come together to do anything complex
3) how long and how much code it takes to make apps
4) how do you even identify a problem to solve by code
5) what is most programmer’s process? Eg same misconception as for authors, you don’t just sit and write beginning to end from memory/inspiration (there is looking up commands, others’ code, debugging)

This is why cyberpunk and such piss me off. There is nothing romantic about poverty. Nothing glorious about living on the street, making do with scraps. It’s fear and cold and your body ages at a rate which would ruin most who walk past to their Google bus ride home. You become hunted by vicious scum in or out of uniform. You futily try for a shred of dignity, while the mere days convert finding basic hygiene into improbable adventures.
