when are we going to get a workshop tradition and philosophy for computer science
instead we have the all-to-common opinion that "computers are garbage and can never be good"
sometimes things are good. sometimes code is elegant and fun to read. sometimes programming is fun and rewarding
but I understand where this sentiment comes from, believe me. we live in a corporate hellscape, where anything that can be sold immediately stops being an art and instead becomes a commodity. I've worked at many jobs where the heart and soul I pour into my work goes to waste, or is built upon disgusting foundations.
but not all art has to be corporate, and not all code needs to be, either
anyway I truly believe that programming can be good and valuable, and not in the capitalistic sense of the word "value"
@SuricrasiaOnline my ideal job is "maintains machines which bulk manufacture food for several communes"
@SuricrasiaOnline this is such a huge mood
I want to think of myself as a craftsperson, but it's hard when the prevailing attitude seems to be "hahaha who knows why code does anything"
