I had a quote by Erik Naggum but then I remembered it's Alan Kay's 80th birthday, so I should celebrate by flaming using something he said.

[JavaScript] is another example of filling a tiny, short-term need, and then being a real problem in the longer term. Basically, a lot of the problems that computing has had in the last 25 years comes from systems where the designers were trying to fix some short-term thing and didn’t think about whether the idea would scale if it were adopted. There should be a half-life on software so old software just melts away over 10 or 15 years.

yes, some stupid people write command line programs and even graphical programs (which are often just web apps but the browser doesn't look like a browser) in JS

Using JavaScript and it's like, huh, this just feels like a good programming language and could fit in the same spots as Python.

go rot in hell

that was uploaded seperately some time ago, by some shitty publisher that also blocked it everywhere, and for some reason they took down the new upload of the album
