I have tried to wade through https://www.infoq.com/presentations/noether, but left with a feeling of emptiness…. I don’t really know what it is. Or looks like. Or how to say “Hello World”. Or solve a toy problem.
It looks to be more a design for a set of semantics than an actual language implementation. I think it’s the right design, but I think it needs an actual implementation, and ideally a cost model.

Hmmm, is (Gnu) Emacs at the point where it works well for today’s “rich”
It does the job for me, at least. The shr renderer, used for the eww browser embedded in Emacs since v25(?), is pretty decent. You can configure your own “convert this HTML message to text” if you want, and if all else fails both Gnus and mu4e has the ability to dump HTML messages into a temporary file on disk and open in your system browser. (It would perhaps not be easy to respond to such messages, but they are usually informational I find.)
Saying that, I may be able to simply because I don’t rely on email for work. (We are a distributed company but use email extremely sparingly, mostly communicating in Slack / issue trackers / pull requests.)
Well, ignoring the fact that I want off of Linux
I use https://emacsforosx.com/ ;-)
BTW, first house, or just a new one?
First house, though an old one. It’s the old coach house adjoining a derelict mansion (which I affectionately refer to as my “garage conversion”). I owned a flat in London in the past, but we rented for a year near here to figure out if we liked it before we commited to buy. I always wanted a castle when I was a kid, but now I have the next best thing: I live next to one and get to see it every day, but don’t have to maintain it :-)
Sorry, moving to Apple’s red headed stepchild is just not going to happen
What does redheads have to do with anything?
I like Apple hardware, for many of the same
jcs does but
I also like their OS. I like that it just works with minimal
customisation. Which leaves me more time to tinker with customisation
where it really matters: my Emacs config ;-)
Anyway, I’ve got at least two years until running Ubuntu 14.04
In what way? On that hardware? Or is it no longer supported beyond
I want to see where I can get in that time, as well as others
following the @nickpsecurity direction.
Which direction is this? Any links? I have been thinking about
venturing outside Apple ecosystem for a while myself. For “future proofing”, “before it is too late” if you will. I don’t relish the idea, but I live almost
exclusively in GNU Emacs, terminal with a unix-like shell (preferrably
fish, zsh, bash, whatever), and a browser, so should be able to use
practically anything that can run those three. Maybe one of the BSDs?
I use email very heavily, any sort of real time messaging system
like Slack is beyond the pale,
I think for most people here Slack replaces people picking up the
phone and interrupting me with a call (they simply can’t come over to
my desk since most of us are working from home) and is thus much more
async than the alternative.
Used [coap][http://coap.technology/] in anger. Think of it as http over udp for very constrained devices over low bandwidth connections.
Used protobufs in anger….
Refreshed my C++ knowledge.
Getting things changed that urgently need to be changed.
Plan for 2017….
