Recently I saw someone mentioning a book about how in the future the protocols are gonna be more relevant than the code
I think it was about the Twitter announcement about a new protocol
I' d like to find it again

@tindall @adasauce Pretty much what happened to Ruby and Python software packaging when early adopters got assimilated by PHP and Java refugees using MacOS—a system with functional command line but no functional package management—as a daily driver. That's when we got gems, pip, #npmgate, and curl | sudo sh.

I had an epiphany related to Guile, yesterday
It autocompiles files when you load/use them and puts the compiled files in a deeply buried folder in a hidden root in your home folder

In the base case you're not supposed to use build systems
