ugh I love this woman and her book and also Darwin was a racist asshole who set scientific progress centuries back, along with Freud, Plato, Aristotle and many other cherished dickwads.

people with greater “emotion granularity” (as Barrett calls it) tend to do better at school, drink less and recover from a stressful situation more quickly. They also seem to be in better health: they visit doctor less frequently, take less medication and are less likely to be hospitalised for illness.

This surprise found was quite interesting to read. Basically discussing some dumdum who thinks intelligence is genetic.

Murray determines—again, using math—that “no woman has been a significant original thinker in any of the world’s great philosophical traditions.” (This might, of course, be because most philosophical writing throughout the history of the world has been little more than masturbatory nonsense, which women are less inclined or encouraged to produce, a hypothesis Murray does not consider.)

true dat. exactly-once delivery is still a pipe dream, until we have magical quantum computing/networking, or go back to writing non-distributed (mini)monoliths (which, of course, is fine for small applications that can delay scaling for a few years - most of us can).

But that’s just it: it’s not exactly-once semantics in a building block that’s the hard thing, it’s building loosely coupled systems that agree on the state of the world. Nevertheless, there is no holy grail here, just some good ole’ fashioned hard work.
