Very rough notes on Bret Victor talks that I may write up some day.
“Thoughts we cannot think”: amazing idea
more general idea than Sapir-Whorf?
tools in general shape thought
language is just one tool
13:44 Jerome Bruner Interactive/Visual/Symbolic is nice
See also Bidirectional Programming
I agree with following a principle
I’m not sure I agree with making it a moral issue
I agree with the idea of tightening feedback loops
reminds me of constraint-based graphic design
I’m impressed by the demo but extremely skeptical about how well it generalises
can you really do everything you might want to do by having familiarity with only a small number of concepts and techniques?
A large part of it is communication: making sure everyone is on the same page
This one is amazing and I’m totally on board with that
