hot take: modern computing sucks mostly because we have no central decision making authorities so everything is either 1) built on 30 year old protocols that nobody wants to touch because it would be too much of an infrastructure investment for private corporations to give a shit about or 2) is proprietary horse shit that only benefits one company

all computing is running on the fumes of research done 30 years ago and every programmer knows it
