@codesections I definitely think they’re different, but with some overlap. Venn diagrams and all that.
@codesections I’m referring to the number of language constructs. Compare Go to other modern languages there isn’t as much to learn.
Packages as abstractions is a fair point, but as long as we want software to do everything there is going to be a lot of stuff out there in terms of quantity. I don’t see any way around that. What we *can* do is the languages themselves.
@codesections I think languages like Go deliberately eschew layers upon layers of abstractions precisely as a reaction against this trend
@bob Of course this ignores everything about Keybase besides PGP key management, but I haven’t personally found the other stuff compelling
@bob Keybase saw the problems with PGP keyservers and said, “Let’s apply some Silicon Valley magic and fix it!” Except the solution is maybe worse than the problem.
