22:03 <ckolderup> ok, cool
22:03 <@madx`> have a good time chasing secrets ;)
22:03 <ckolderup> I'll risk repeating things in the meantime
22:03 <tsion> I've got an archive of todays stuff at
22:04 <ckolderup> looks like all of the domain names were registered using, with a whois anonymizer thing
22:04 <ckolderup> not the same as
22:05 <duckinator> I have an archive including the PCLs from December until today, Steve Klabnik's PDFs from today, and tsion's PDFs from today:

22:05 <ericwood> hey guys
22:05 <tsion> hi
22:05 <ckolderup> the youtube shore video says "you have to be patient. follow me and wait"
22:05 <ckolderup>
22:05 <ericwood> today is an exciting day :)
22:06 <ckolderup> the other video (not from the "shore" site) is one about the boston bombing :-/
22:09 <mwunsch> new page:
22:09 <tsion> PDF.js is awful at rendering these
22:10 <ericwood> hooray for built-in PDF readers!
22:12 -- madx` changed the topic of #_why to: Logging everything about _why's return - Public transcript available at:
22:13 <@madx`> Ok I've set up a quick transcript, really gotta leave now, see you all ;)
22:13 <ckolderup> nice, thank you!
22:13 <ericwood> how many more pages do y'all think there'll be?
22:13 <ericwood> 100?
22:13 <ckolderup> he said there'd be 100 "and a day"
22:13 <ckolderup> but who knows if that's literal
22:13 <ericwood> you never know with him ;)
22:14 <ckolderup> anyone good with audio stuff? the obama video on the youtube account sounds a little wonky
22:14 <ckolderup> not sure if there's something layered over the audio there or something
22:14 <ckolderup> I don't know how crazy to get there
22:24 -- jcaudle (~jcaudle@ has joined #_why
22:26 <ckolderup> has anyone else rendered the other files in the github repo? the ones @steveklabnik hasn't done yet?
22:27 <tsion> ckolderup: I could do them. Where are they?
22:27 <ckolderup>
22:27 <ericwood> BIBLICAL is the new one
22:27 <tsion> getting biblical now
22:27 <ckolderup> these are from last week, looks like
22:28 <tsion>
22:28 <ckolderup> nice, thanks
22:28 <ericwood> upside down :(
22:29 <tsion> my pdf reader can rotate, so it's not an issue, though maybe I could find another tool to flip them in the file
22:29 <ericwood> I was just opening it in chrome, I've changed it now ;)
22:30 <ericwood> okay, so that made no sense
22:30 <ckolderup> hrm
22:30 <ckolderup> I wonder why the diner in the story is a real one
22:30 <ckolderup> almost everything else is fake
22:30 <ckolderup> I guess The Happening is a real movie
22:31 <duckinator> i'm working on something which fetches them automatically from as they come in, already have one for tsion's PDFs
22:31 <duckinator> considering fetching steve's automatically as well, but...twitter... D:
22:33 <ericwood> just run that OCaml script _why gave out
22:33 <ericwood> it'll print to your printer
22:33 <duckinator> i have no printer :P

22:38 <ckolderup>
22:39 <mwunsch> -- this is Chinese. A proper noun, like a location name.
22:39 <mwunsch> we're splitting the gif now
22:40 <tsion> what made the connection to this thdvl user?
22:40 <ericwood> yeah...
22:40 <ericwood> what's that about
22:41 <tsion> I guess there's
22:41 <ckolderup> thdvl github user forked the repo that hosts the page

22:43 <tsion> ckolderup: just deleted SOLICIT from /_why/older... it wasn't a PCL, it was a base64 encoded gif
22:43 <tsion> which was a QR code, I assume the same as from the youtube account
22:43 <ckolderup> hmm
22:44 <duckinator> tsion: can you put the GIF up there?
22:44 <tsion> sure
22:44 <ckolderup> I'd just like to confirm that it's the same
22:44 <tsion> yeah
22:45 <tsion>
22:45 <tsion>
22:46 <mwunsch> that shore.gif has some stuff in it
22:46 <ckolderup> scanning that qr code
22:46 <ckolderup> okay, same one

22:51 <tsion> lol, looks like github is on my site now
22:51 <tsion> wait
22:51 <tsion> hmph, i'm just confusing myself
22:52 <tsion> i didn't download the raw image. i'm a little silly today
22:52 <duckinator> just a tad :P
22:54 <duckinator> tsion: can you do YOU as well? if you do that i'll have all of the ones for this year as both original and PDF/GIF
22:56 <paulv> ACCIDENT
22:56 <tsion> duckinator: where?
22:56 <duckinator> tsion:
22:57 <mwunsch> something coast likes fire
22:57 <mwunsch> could be one definition...if that makes sense contextually
22:57 <mwunsch> i havne't seen the first character before

22:59 <tsion> ACCIDENT:
22:59 <ckolderup> colleague just found this:
22:59 <duckinator> tsion: thanks
23:00 * tsion doesn't get why sync.rb keeps uploading itself
23:00 <ckolderup> looks pretty straightforward twitter bootstrap template except for this image:
23:01 <ckolderup> the individual frames appear to be porn
23:04 -- jcaudle (~jcaudle@ has left #_why ()
23:04 <tsion> duckinator: I'm thinking when this is done, rotate all the pdfs to be upright (I imagine there's a commandline tool that can do this) and concatenate them all into a single multipage pdf (I also imagine there's tools for this)
23:05 <ckolderup> vimeo account of the woman who owns the "abusive mom" youtube video
23:05 <ckolderup> her homepage is "under construction"

23:08 <ckolderup>
23:08 <duckinator> okay, auto-fetching all of _why's stuff and tsion's now

23:09 <duckinator> bbl. if anyone notices Steve upload another PDF after ACCIDENT (I just got that one of his), can you PM me the URL so i can grab it later?
23:11 <ckolderup> this could be a TOTAL coincidence but I got a spam twitter reply when talking to people about this on Twitter

23:27 <ckolderup> apparently SOLICIT originally *was* a page
23:27 <ckolderup> thdvl updated it in the repo to replace it with the encoded qr code
23:27 <ckolderup> does anyone have the actual SOLICIT page?
23:27 <tsion> ah
23:27 <ckolderup> as a PDF?
23:27 <tsion> should be in the git repo history, I can make a pdf
23:28 <tsion> UNBOUND:
23:29 <tsion> ckolderup:
23:29 <ckolderup> thanks
23:29 <ckolderup> I wonder why he overwrote this one in particular
23:30 <eknutson> are we sure he did?
23:30 <ckolderup> "lay it on thick with the 4 to 11"
23:31 <eknutson> afaict thdvl is just someone who forked the repo
23:31 <ckolderup> eknutson: I guess we don't know that thdvl is the same person. They're doing something mysterious too, though, and they were onto him a lot earlier than anyone else
23:31 <eknutson> good point
23:31 <ckolderup> but we can't prove that he's the same
23:32 <eknutson> perhaps thdvl is a character
23:32 <ckolderup> the stuff from is being served from the cwales account directly.
23:32 <tsion> yeah it's a github pages site
23:33 <ckolderup> right
23:34 <tsion> good summary of this convoluted connection in an HN comment: "thdvl also changed the SPOOL/SOLICIT file to a bunch of base64, which decodes to a gif image, which is of a QR code that points to the URL"
23:34 <tchaikovsky> does the welsh theme go belond the 'cwales' username and the mabinogion literature stuff?
23:34 <tchaikovsky> maybe it's nothing.
23:35 <eknutson> now, a ref to The Book Thief which features Death as a character

23:40 <steveklabnik>
23:40 <ckolderup> I just wasn't sure why they were being so oblique
23:40 <ckolderup> maybe just to play along
23:40 <steveklabnik>
23:40 <steveklabnik>
23:40 <mwunsch> the mood of thdvl, and even the link to the "oprah" drunk mom video is dark
23:40 <steveklabnik>
23:40 <steveklabnik> his stuff has always had a dark edge
23:41 <steveklabnik> he talkeda bout his own suicide in the poignant guide
23:41 <steveklabnik> and his return......
23:41 <steveklabnik>
23:41 <mwunsch> i remember that in the poignant guide. yeah you're right

23:41 <steveklabnik> there

23:42 <ckolderup> thanks
23:42 <tsion> and if you want all the links on one page:
23:42 <duckinator> steveklabnik: are you gonna link to future ones here? if so, i can throw together a quick irc bot and automate all the downloads :P
23:42 <steveklabnik> yeah, i will
23:42 <steveklabnik> i can also just give you them
23:42 <duckinator> awesome
23:42 <steveklabnik> :p
23:42 <mwunsch> whaterever this thread ends up going, it doesn't matter if thdvl is _why or not, that character is wrapped up in this narrative
23:42 <steveklabnik> once he's done
23:42 <ckolderup> I've subscribed to email updates on thdvl's youtube channel
23:43 <duckinator> but that ruins the fun of it! i have to entertain myself for the rest of the day *somehow*.
23:43 <ckolderup> and erin womack's, although it appears to be long-dormant
23:44 <mwunsch> ckolderup and I think this will wrap up a bit around 24 UTC. Did he begin at 16 UTC?
23:44 <tsion> I think he began 15:30-ish UTC
23:44 <steveklabnik> he said it'd be '100 pages and a day'
23:45 <tchaikovsky> my thursday night ritual of bbc question time pales into insignificance in the face of _why's cryptic offerings
23:45 <tsion> well, disclaimer was posted at 15:08 UTC
23:45 <ckolderup> steveklabnik: but he's almost made multiple references to "4 to 12" and "4 to 11"
23:45 <tchaikovsky> i'm on tenterhooks
23:45 <steveklabnik> thats true
23:45 <ckolderup> "4 to 12" for today specifically
23:46 <ckolderup> steveklabnik: you might want to get the pages from that aren't in the 1-26 that you converted today
23:46 <steveklabnik> yeah
23:46 <ckolderup> I think they were up on the site earlier
23:46 <steveklabnik> they were
23:46 <steveklabnik> i have some of them
23:47 <steveklabnik> i'm missing 1 or two
23:47 <ckolderup> I think he got them all from the github repo history
23:47 <steveklabnik> yeah
23:48 <paulv> PEANUTS is up
23:48 <tchaikovsky> has anyone actually got it hooked up to their printer, as in with the ocaml script?
23:48 <tchaikovsky> that could be fun.
23:48 <HeddyQuilts> I do!
23:49 <ckolderup> that's awesome
23:49 <tsion> PEANUTS:
23:49 <tchaikovsky> oh look, _why has faxed me again!
23:49 <ckolderup> gg HeddyQuilts
23:49 <tchaikovsky> heh.
23:49 <HeddyQuilts> yup
23:49 <HeddyQuilts> it has extra novelty because I have had no dealings with fax machines before
23:49 <mwunsch> we can all agree that this is the coolest blogging platform ever, yes
23:49 <duckinator> definitely :P
23:49 <tsion> the future is lame, bring back fax machines!

23:59 <mwunsch> HeddyQuilts: one of the islands there is circled, near University Douglas...
23:59 <ckolderup> it's the email address for the git commits author
23:59 <ckolderup> checking thdvl's commits now
23:59 <mwunsch> maybe that's Finger/Peanut Island?
00:00 <ckolderup> "info@celebsbukkake"
00:00 <atduskgreg> so, I'm late to the party. Is someone already working on turning these things into an easy-to-read feed of some kind?
00:01 <HeddyQuilts> mwunsh: ah, you're right! I bet that's it
00:01 <tsion> atduskgreg: steveklabnik and I are both converting them to pdf. I've got them easily browseable at
00:01 <steveklabnik> yup
00:01 <duckinator> atduskgreg: i've got a github repo with all of the originals + scott's PDFs + steve's PDFs. finishing up automating fetching all of that.
00:01 <mwunsch>
00:02 <ckolderup> the island itself doesn't appear to have anything on it
00:02 <ckolderup> the circled one
00:02 <ckolderup>,+Port+Angeles,+BC,+Canada&hl=en&ll=48.539781,-122.822642&spn=0.010627,0.015385&sll=40.697488,-73.979681&sspn=0.778802,0.98465&oq=san+juan+strait&hnear=Strait+of+Juan+de+Fuca&t=m&z=16
00:02 <atduskgreg> duckinator: are the two sets of PDFs different?
00:02 <HeddyQuilts> btw, minor thing, Marvin Holyoake appears in chapter 5 of the poignant guide
00:02 <duckinator> atduskgreg: not sure, that's why i'm collecting both :)
00:02 <mwunsch>
00:02 <mwunsch> There's a "north finger island" and "south finger island"
00:03 <tsion> they're converted by different tools, but i imagine ours pdfs are essentially identical
00:03 <tsion> our*
00:03 <mwunsch>
00:03 <duckinator> atduskgreg: i imagine any difference is with the text content -- all of them seem to be PDFs of images with hidden text behind them
00:03 <mwunsch> the name of the listserve was "georgie" possibly related to the strait of georgia
00:03 <atduskgreg> I'd love to setup a service to (at least) tweet out a link to a new PDF whenever a new page appears
00:03 <steveklabnik> i mean, i get them within 60 seconds

00:04 <atduskgreg> konklone: Hi eric!
00:04 <konklone> Hi Greg
00:04 <tsion> ELEVENTH:
00:04 <steveklabnik> yes, doing it by hand. it's pretty damn quick, and he should be done soon.
00:05 <atduskgreg> steveklabnik: what makes you think it'll be done soon?
00:05 <konklone> page 1 of today said "the next hundred pages"
00:05 <konklone> sounds like we're 27% through :)
00:05 <atduskgreg> haha. by "next hundred" I just read "a bunch"
00:05 <mwunsch>
00:05 <duckinator> i believe (i didn't write it) should be able to convert them to text. i'll see about getting the text content as well and adding that to the repo
00:06 <steveklabnik> atduskgreg: see DESOLEE
00:06 <ckolderup> konklone: he said in DESOLEE that the printer would be running from 4 to 12
00:07 <ckolderup> and then in SOLICIT he said "lay it on thick with the '4 to 11' just over and over"
00:07 <konklone> huh, okay
00:07 <konklone> what time zone is that in?
00:08 <tsion> UTC probably, like the times on the spool
00:08 <atduskgreg> so we're thinking this is just today?
00:08 <mwunsch> More about Flying J:
00:08 <steveklabnik> atduskgreg: yes.
00:08 <steveklabnik> i think it'll be it, too
00:08 <steveklabnik> this is just closure
00:09 <tchaikovsky> didn't he start at like 1500 UTC?
00:09 <mwunsch> "1968: Flying J Inc. begins with four gas stations in Utah. Founder Jay Call bases name on love of flying, ranching." → Utah connection
00:10 <mwunsch> "2003: Flying J founder and Chairman of the Board Jay Call dies in a plane crash in Idaho."
00:10 <paulv> IIRC flying j's corporate headquarters got raided by the FBI and IRS the other day

00:11 <mwunsch> oh, wrong date, scratch that sorry

00:34 <vosechu> whew, I was worried that there was another mystery in there

00:36 <steveklabnik> so what to call the person? we know his name, but i dont think it's right to use it.
00:36 <ckolderup> the actor vs the role
00:36 <steveklabnik> yes.
00:37 <ckolderup> Subject is fine, or Actor
00:37 <mwunsch> I think it would be interesting if, in the aftermath of this, if we assume the persona of _why will be given up, what happens to it. Does _why continue to exist just as a set of static backups and some projects in maintenance
00:37 <mwunsch> or does somebody take up that mantle?
00:37 <steveklabnik> i like Subject because it implies that he _does_ things
00:37 <vosechu> and there's no guarantee that that actor is always playing that role or that the role is always played by the actor

01:10 <ckolderup> ah, I see
01:10 <ckolderup> yeah, definitely. Their behavior in the issue fits why's style of talking
01:10 <HeddyQuilts> duckinator: yeah, it pretty much confirms that _why's actually telling a true story there, and it's connected to why he left
01:10 <ckolderup> and the poem/song at the end
01:11 <ckolderup> I wonder if he got permission from them to use their accounts as sockpuppets, basically, in that thread
01:11 <tchaikovsky> HeddyQuilts: not necessarily.

01:17 <milesforrest> one of my favourite programmers is Dan Kubb, who writes really beautiful code. He would agree with _why's statement "I wrote hideous code fore years. On the other hand: almost all code - IF NOT ALL CODE - is hideous!" Dan believes all code is experimental.

01:30 <rsully> so based on when the updates started it looks like the "4 - 12" time is in GMT+1
01:30 <tchaikovsky> doesn't sound _why-ish to have the whole thing automated
01:31 <ckolderup> so... another 90 minutes?
01:31 <rsully> (assuming 4pm, which probably makes about as little sense as 4am)
01:32 <rsully> i thought the timespan had finished half an hour ago
01:32 <ckolderup> that would be about the right amount for the rest of the chapter
01:32 <rsully> gotcha
01:32 <rsully> seems like for the most part the updates are every half hour :/
01:32 <ckolderup> rsully: well, that was if it were GMT and it were the "4 to 11" from, uh, SOLICIT

02:57 <k2052> NULL is a cool choice for personifying programming frustration. Fucking NULL. Always there.Always present. Endless nothingness. A void of suffering. It attacks without concern. It will take your confidence and turn it into self-doubt. It will take your hope and replace it with despair. NULL does not discriminate. NULL attacks anyone at anytime, in the best of times and the worst of times. NULL just is.
02:58 <k2052> It seems like the PDFs are slowly moving towards a point. Starting to get a bit reflective.I wonder how many more there are. If it follows a general narrative, he'll tell us what it felt like to quit, give us insight to why he did, then tell us where he is going in the future; i.e what happens next. I'm mostly curious about what happens next. Is he coming back? Is he leaving the character and coming back as himself? Is he quitting permanently and this is just
02:58 <k2052> explaining why? So many questions.
02:58 * steveklabnik nods
02:58 <Twisol> k2052: It would be rather poetic if ended up explaining why, because it would also explain _why.
02:58 <tchaikovsky> i doubt there'll be any firm conclusion.
02:58 <jcaudle> FIGHTS does seem to end with a sign-off (before the parenthesis)

03:03 <eknutson> In Obj-C, nil is harmless. I think part of the point is that precisely because it is literal nothing, we personify it, attach things to it that can not possibly be
03:04 <andymatuschak> no no no that's the danger
03:04 <andymatuschak> nil is extremely harmful
03:04 <eknutson> on some level NULL could just as easily be a friend.. but don't we almost always Make it a Bad Thing
03:04 <andymatuschak> but it SEEMS harmless
03:04 -- fischr3 ( has quit (Quit: Leaving.)
03:04 <andymatuschak> it is just a more dangerous, sneaky kind of harmful
03:04 <steveklabnik> in Ruby nil is a thing too
03:04 <eknutson> I put to you that it is utterly guileless
03:04 <steveklabnik> it's still very harmless
03:04 <steveklabnik> harmful
03:04 <andymatuschak> in ruby, messaging nil throws an exception
03:04 <andymatuschak> it is more immediately harmful
03:05 <andymatuschak> in obj-c, messaging nil does nothing (and returns zero… even if the return is a struct)
03:05 <andymatuschak> which is… sometimes what you want
03:05 <deweysmith> did you work out officially what time zone he's talking?
03:05 <andymatuschak> but when it's not, you don't find out until much later
03:05 <eknutson> I think these are value judgments we're projecting on it
03:05 <steveklabnik> andymatuschak: that's true
03:05 <deweysmith> for the timing
03:05 <Twisol> In Haskell, you don't have Null unless you welcome it into a type, like with Maybe.

03:06 <Twisol> true! Haven't played with any ML languages yet.

03:06 <steveklabnik> Rust is excellent btw
03:06 <steveklabnik> if you haven't tried it
03:07 <eknutson> I think NULL is as close to the word zen as you can get in programming. It just seems like an interesting thing to try to "fight"
03:07 <Twisol> I'm behind the times on the more modern languages. :(
03:07 <andymatuschak> rust is super interesting
03:07 <steveklabnik> i wrote a 50~ page book on it:
03:07 <eknutson> "I quit programming because buddha nature"
03:07 <andymatuschak> oh, i hadn't seen, nice
03:07 <Twisol> Nice, definitely going to check that out.

03:08 <deweysmith> good grief
03:08 <deweysmith> this is just great
03:08 <rsully> that would just ruin it i think
03:08 <andymatuschak> when i last played with rust, the traits implementation was still very unfinished, especially default implementations

04:31 <milesforrest> now he's mocking the article about him living in Salt Lake. _why is a modern-day Andy Kaufman
04:31 <lazyking> From the where's why? article: Finally, late in my reporting, I got word back-channeled to me from another Salt Lake City programmer: Jonathan is _why, he is fine, and he just wants to be left alone.
04:32 <lazyking> Must be the reference to the anonymous programmer from Salt Lake City referenced in HELLOYES

07:22 <eknutson> probably
07:22 <eknutson> it was probably a real book though

07:23 <steveklabnik> yeah
07:23 <steveklabnik> it's well-done, for sure
07:23 <eknutson> and then actually photocopied that book. yet we have sort of "pushed" a virtual book on top of the real book
07:24 <eknutson> so even though the real book (which, if it were me, I'd have used SACRED CLOWNS if it actually does exist) must have tons of blank pages itself
07:24 <eknutson> I mean, the 35ish pages we had before this format couldn't have taken up that many pages..
07:25 <eknutson> don't mind me, I'm totally buried in the fractal nature of this whole thing, and also on how we keep adding layers on it to extend the fractal into meatspace

09:15 <Twisol> "I had dropped my flute studies over a day ago."
09:15 <Twisol> God, he makes a day sound like such a long time.
09:17 <steveklabnik> end of a format....
09:19 <Twisol> Ah, crud.

09:22 <steveklabnik> whoah
09:22 <milesforrest> Anyone daring enough to take a stab at what it means?
09:22 <steveklabnik> unsure with this one.
09:23 <milesforrest> My mind is swirling with "Dune", and TDD, and the Rails people being the Jobsians...
09:23 <Twisol> He related the group to a Steve Jobs cult, and then he died with pain near his kidneys. Pancreatic cancer?
09:23 <paulv> there was something before about programs getting old quickly
09:23 <steveklabnik> yeah, his last tweeets
09:24 <milesforrest> It's as if the programming culture kills people. Burns them out. _why would eat, that is, feed himself with stufff other than programming (programming = playing flutes)

09:25 <milesforrest> People learning how to write Ruby and Rails code by playing flutes. Saying "Dune" after each little program.
09:25 <nickbender> Any stab at the significance of Dune?
09:26 <milesforrest> I know I'm just rambling, but I'm trying to brainstorm to seed some ideas.
09:26 <Twisol> milesforrest: Like koans?
09:27 <milesforrest> Twisol: yeah, like koans. you run the tests, get them to pass ("Dune") then move on to the other one.
09:28 <milesforrest> the whole flute making process makes new programmers, but because they're not feeding themselves (ie: creating things, observing stuff other than programming) they just keep playing the same songs over and over again.

09:28 <Twisol> The Jobsian bit might fit in as how the Mac is a really, really popular platform among Rubyists.
09:28 <Twisol> (I <3 my macbook air)
09:29 -- madx` changed the topic of #_why to: Logging everything about _why's return - Public transcript available at:
09:29 <imakewebthings> would it be a stretch to suggest the songs/flutes are apps/programs and the people of the island startups?
09:29 <@madx`> I've made an easier to read version of the transcript at
09:29 <paulv> it's like...these people keep dying and you have to keep teaching them the same stuff over and over
09:29 <milesforrest> Twisol: of course. _why was into Ruby long before Rails showed up on the scene. It wasn't until DHH released the Rails screencast showing him using TextMate that everything blew up. People bought Macs just to run TextMate (sad to say, I'm one of them)
09:29 <@madx`> have to work now, see you ;)
09:30 <milesforrest> madx`: thanks :) looks nice.
09:30 <Twisol> milesforrest: That makes sense.
09:31 <imakewebthings> ...and that "dune" is the echo-chamber acknowledgement that everyone is doing the right thing
09:32 <paulv> but no progress ever gets made
09:32 <Twisol> This might be a misconception, but it seems l that Ruby is a very "hip", "young" sort of language. You don't usually hear older people associated with it, even though it's been around a good while.
09:32 <milesforrest> I think it's got something to do with the whole testing culture. I was at the first Rails Conference in Vancouver in 2006, and can remember the emphasis back then on testing. I also remember _why being criticized because he wasn't doing things "the right way". He didn't write tests.
09:32 <steveklabnik> yes
09:32 <steveklabnik> why never wrote tests
09:32 <steveklabnik> :'(
09:32 <Twisol> Maybe it's a reference to how people come into Ruby as newbies, and we also lose people who move on
09:33 <nickbender> Twisol: A quote I heard from 'big academia' the other day: "The minority languages have more to prove, so of course they're cool, they have to be to be used at all."
09:33 <paulv> he wrote a blog post that was saying "just hack on it, you know?"
09:33 <milesforrest> yeah, he talks about the people he met back in the early days of Rails have sinced "died" and he didn't know any of the new people.
09:33 <Twisol> nickbender: Hah, I see.
09:34 <Twisol> I didn't really follow the _why story until now, so it sounds like I'm just repeating obvious things. :D
09:34 <milesforrest> This is going to be puzzled over and written about for weeks :) Good job, _why.
09:35 <nickbender> The variety and quality of the content is impressive. I wonder how long it took him to create.
09:35 <steveklabnik> must have taken forever
09:35 * milesforrest shrugs
09:37 <milesforrest> The date he mentions... July 12, 2010. The one story that stands out for me so far is the iPhone 4 was not recommended by consumer reports because of the antenna problem:
09:37 <eknutson> wonder if this will work :)
09:37 <nickbender> Jobsian, to be sure, but was that all that happened that day?
09:38 <milesforrest> well guys, I want to keep hashing this, but I'm going to be 44 this year, so I'm old and need rest. looking forward to chewing on this tomorrow. g'night :)

15:03 <knowtheory> the hacker news thread like most discussions of _why makes me sad
15:03 <ericwood> I don't recommend reading HN
15:03 <ckolderup> hacker news makes me sad :P
15:03 <ericwood> the comments, at least
15:03 <knowtheory> Despite that, it's important.
15:03 <knowtheory> it is a community, and it represents us in some ways.
15:04 <ericwood> in some
15:04 <ckolderup> it represents the stuff that pushes me closer and closer to quitting the profession every day, tbqh
15:04 <knowtheory> and without a countervailing narrative, HN stands as the defacto place where people learn how to be people like us.
15:04 <ericwood> it's the annoying startup cult culture bullshit
15:05 <ericwood> it's not about hackers it's about hot new stupid stuff and "disrupting the disruption industry" and other crap
15:05 <knowtheory> despite that, their reaction to _why disappoints me.
15:06 <ericwood> some people don't understand art and never will
15:06 <ericwood> that's fine
15:06 <ericwood> but I don't like the type of person who gets upset at other people for enjoying a good mystery
15:06 <ericwood> and care deeply about _why
15:07 <knowtheory> hm. is it as simple as "they don't understand art"? It may be.
15:07 <ericwood> it's more complex than that
15:08 <knowtheory> It's a bit reductionist but it kind of works.
15:08 -- jcaudle (~jcaudle@ has joined #_why
15:08 <knowtheory> i don't think it's really about art tbh. i think it's about metaphysics, pedagogy and expression

15:09 <locks> if your own fault for reading HN
15:09 <ericwood> knowtheory: art is a simple way of saying that I suppose
15:09 <knowtheory> locks: that's a bit of a defeatist attitude isn't it?
15:09 <locks> nope
15:10 <ckolderup> I don't think it's defeatist to choose to largely ignore something that poisonous
15:10 <locks> leave them to rot, build cool shit
15:10 <locks> HN is a zero sum game, why bother
15:10 <knowtheory> you want to find out whether other people understand as you do, or whether or not there are alternative takes on the works you enjoy?
15:10 <ckolderup> I check the front page of the site from time to time to see if there are interesting links, but I never read the comments
15:10 <knowtheory> locks: ha, i don't necessarily disagree, but then, one can still engage in zero sum games if you play to win ;)
15:10 <ckolderup>
15:10 <knowtheory> and actually no, i don't think it's a zero sum game.
15:11 <ckolderup> is a good account to follow to give you a daily reminder
15:11 <knowtheory> engagement is important
15:11 <knowtheory> nothing will ever change unless you reach out and communicate with others
15:11 <knowtheory> anyway, that's what i think
15:12 <ckolderup> I communicate with probably a hundred people on a daily basis through the course of my life
15:12 <knowtheory> there's a case to be made that commenting is a rather poor way to do that, but that's a different conversation.
15:12 <ckolderup> I don't need to seek out more people
15:12 <locks> reaching out thru HN doesn't work
15:12 <locks> you need two to tango
15:12 <knowtheory> well that's one hypothesis, but i'm not sure i agree w/ it by default :)
15:13 <locks> most HN posters aren't looking to widen their horizons, they're there to get off on confirmation bias
15:13 <locks> basically, HN is youtube comments
15:13 <locks> and I'm sorry I'm as articulate as a cabbage
15:13 <knowtheory> Oh i've had the most fun in youtube comments.
15:14 <knowtheory> holding people accountable for their rhetorical choices in youtube comments usually results in obvious discomfort for the wannabe trolls posting (particularly in political videos)
15:15 <knowtheory> HN is more of a challenge, because people have more than 2 braincells to rub together, but still, making them take their assumptions into battle is interesting.
15:16 <knowtheory> one of the things that is interesting about HN as well, is that it is only one feed of stuff. Everyone sees the same threads (although obviously there's selection bias for who drops into the threads)
15:16 <knowtheory> maybe that's an overly sociological motivation for engaging :)
15:16 <knowtheory> still think it's important.

19:46 <eknutson> current status: pondering the meaning of "dune" in the contexts of: zen koans, the other warped French words like "dore" and the Frank Herbert novel
19:46 <aberant> eknutson: so i'm late to this discussion, but i just got caught up this morning. trying to digest the metaphor.. i believe it's related to him saying he hated entrepreneurs
19:47 <aberant> yeah, the melting down flutes and making newer, smaller ones.. i'm not sure of that significance
19:47 <eknutson> on the French angle, the verb "donner," "to give"
19:48 <eknutson> in one sense, it could be everyone using the imperative form "donne" ie "gimme"
19:49 <eknutson> melting down flutes? is that the cannibalistic nature of small tech companies?
19:56 <aberant> maybe.. i suck at metaphors.. i think with the flutes it's complicated tho, because it's how people tell stories.. and they used to be bigger..
19:57 <knowtheory> steveklabnik: what's the issue with preview?
19:57 <steveklabnik> cant talk
19:57 <steveklabnik> need to pay attention
19:57 <knowtheory> Okay, well, if there's PDF manipulation stuff, i've got tools :P drop me a line when yer free.
19:57 <eknutson> aberant: the stories were bigger, or the people?
19:58 <aberant> oh, the flutes used to be bigger, if i remember correctly… i've only read it once this morning
20:00 <eknutson> yes, the flutes were getting smaller and smaller
20:00 <aberant> and i remember there being a bit about people putting holes in wrong places
20:01 <eknutson> there was great focus also on "the latest innovation" which would be a slightly different way of making the mouthpiece, a certain pattern of holes, etc
20:01 <eknutson> yes
20:01 <aberant> yeah..
20:01 <aberant> maybe it was a commentary on programming languages.. i knew that _why liked to dabble in that.
20:02 <aberant> i really need to ocr it and read it a dozen or so time..
20:03 <eknutson> yes. I can relate to that, too. like how my main project currently is Java, C and Python. I often get a sense, especially when rapidly switching contexts, that each one has such a complicated set of best practices and whatnot
20:03 <eknutson> I never feel like I'm doing anything the right way..
20:03 <eknutson> or that there even is a right way.. or several right ways

20:06 -- kalopsian ( has joined #_why
20:07 <aberant> yeah.. i get that a lot too.. can't say i've stopped trying tho.. i think there's some sort of undeniable rightness that sometimes springs up if you keep hacking at something
20:07 <aberant> other times you are just writing ruby in python or bash.. or java in ruby form.. etc..
20:10 <eknutson> I actually converted the bash spooling script to ruby, not so much because I needed or wanted it to work.. it was like a meditative exercise while waiting for the next page
20:11 <eknutson> I went to sleep right after the last page was posted. I woke up and the script had crashed (I had it set to do a git fetch/merge into my fork, and it diligently removed the index file)
20:12 <eknutson> there was a feeling of satori when I saw the list of deletions followed by the error message
20:14 <aberant> does any of the flute math make sense to anyone? skyman == 1.. forrestman == 2 maybe i'm being too literal..
20:15 <eknutson> anyway, part of the exercise for me was knowing there were "better" ways to do all the things I wanted to do, but staying focused on simplicity: avoiding 3rd party modules & frameworks, managing the level of effort, asking myself "if someone needs to maintain this, how much time will they need to spend reading things before they can make changes?"

20:18 <aberant> yeah.. well the young boy said dune..
20:19 <eknutson> I kept getting the sense that why knew enough French to know what they were saying wasn't _quite_ French, but perhaps none of them realized that?
20:19 <eknutson> and after a few days, a few iterations, nobody even really knew broken French anymore
20:21 <aberant> yeah.. in molded he's talking to herbert in french.. and in spawn he isn't...
20:27 <mosburger> I don't know enough about the French language - could they be speaking an "odd" dialect like Quebecois?
20:27 <eknutson> wellll.. they're on the wrong side of Canada for that, I'd say
20:28 <mosburger> yeah, true… just grasping. :)
20:29 <eknutson> I think it's fair to say, however, that the profusion of dialects is a theme, along with the rapidly degenerating flute language
20:29 <mosburger> (i'm also still just catching up with all this - haven't read all of it yet)
20:29 <eknutson> one thing I find fascinating about the book is how well some of the metaphors hold up when taken literally
20:30 <eknutson> the pipe often seems to just be a pipe

20:57 <mwunsch> eknutson: I took the flute thing to mean computers themselves. Referring back to the 32bit power pc thing

22:10 <aberant> for those who don't know.. there wasn't really a front end to get into hoodwinkd either..
22:10 <vosechu> aberant, I really miss hoodwink.d
22:10 <aberant> there was some esoteric poem.. and there was some text you only saw when you highlight it..
22:11 <vosechu> What do you mean aberant? There was an admin area
22:11 <aberant> that was a couple ip's you needed to add to your /etc/hosts file..
22:11 <aberant> oh.. the admin area was once you got your /etc/hosts file setup
22:11 <vosechu> steveklabnik: did you ever hear back about whether he was okay or not? There were some worried people no HN that I'd love to post back and say that he's alive and healthy and this was just to return the character to the community
22:12 <steveklabnik> the email bounced
22:12 <steveklabnik> but i mean
22:12 <steveklabnik> given his updates today
22:12 <steveklabnik> it's pretty clear he's okay.
22:12 <vosechu> that's how I was feeling too
22:17 <tchaikovsky> people feel they're owed an explanation don't they
22:17 <tchaikovsky> about everything.

00:31 <milesforrest> steveklabnik: thanks for all the tweets yesterday :) I was wrecked today from lack of sleep, but it was worth it.
00:31 <steveklabnik> awesome
00:31 <steveklabnik> :)
00:31 <steveklabnik> ironically, everyone loved it until the end
00:31 <steveklabnik> some european people got mad at me
00:32 <milesforrest> really? huh.
00:32 <steveklabnik> *shrug*
00:32 <steveklabnik> some people also didnt know who why is
00:32 <steveklabnik> it's easy to forget how long it's been and how much ruby has grown
00:32 <milesforrest> it really is. but I think the kernel that started with Matz, personified in _why, appreciated and celebrated by DHH is still very much alive.
00:33 -- kjg_ (~kjg@unaffiliated/kjg) has quit (Quit: Leaving...)
00:33 <rsully> it's funny - i'm so engrossed in this story and _why as a concept and i've never even written more than a handful of lines of ruby
00:34 <milesforrest> rsully: hey, I've been a "Ruby Programmer" since 2005, and have barely written more than 100 lines. I seem to want to be around developers rather than actually write code. Coding is hard.
00:34 <milesforrest> I make my living around the edges (DevOps, web stuff, screencasting, etc)
00:35 <rsully> i come from PHP where i've probably written thousands of lines. yet somehow _why applies just as much to me and you as it does any rubyist. it's quite inspiring
00:35 <milesforrest> rsully: yep. agreed :)
00:39 <rsully> i only learned about _why maybe 6 months ago, long after he had disappeared. yet i feel like i would do anything for him without thinking twice. i'd like to think his work will live on, even if his programs don't
00:41 <milesforrest> rsully: I think it's important to realize he's just a man who wants to inspire others to create without fear. It's why I still celebrate whyday every year :)
00:43 <milesforrest> I still find it funny that he was "dead" for 1337 days. I wonder if he planned it that way.
00:43 <rsully> maybe at first. but to me his leaving is more about him coming to the realization that even if you create without fear your work is likely forgotten or outdated
00:43 <steveklabnik> oh he was?
00:43 <milesforrest> rsully: that's the whole sum of the human experience!
00:44 <milesforrest> steveklabnik: yeah, it's 1338 days from August 19th 2009 to April 18th, 2013. So he was "gone" for 1337 days
00:44 <rsully> makes you wonder if he planned this from the start. couldn't think of a more perfect story
00:44 <steveklabnik> aaamazing
00:44 <steveklabnik> he called april 18th a long time ago
00:44 <milesforrest> maybe. or maybe he really did become exhausted, quit, then came up with the idea a couple of years later.
00:45 <steveklabnik> in the poignant guide
00:45 <steveklabnik> he disssapears and comes back as the white rabit
< steveklabnik> he disssapears and comes back as the white rabit
00:45 <milesforrest> riiiight. I forgot that.
00:45 <steveklabnik> the white rabit is in this as well
00:45 <rsully> (foreshadowing)
00:47 <steveklabnik> hmmmmm
00:47 <steveklabnik> [1] pry(main)> "Weds, 19 Aug 2009".to_date + 1337.days
00:47 <steveklabnik> => Wed, 17 Apr 2013
00:47 <milesforrest> right. those are the days he was gone.
00:47 <steveklabnik> ahhh
00:48 <steveklabnik> right
00:48 <steveklabnik> neato
00:48 <milesforrest> makes me smile :)
00:50 <milesforrest> madx`: are you going to keep this channel alive? I'd like to hang out in a place during the workday with like-minded people.
00:52 <steveklabnik> it will stay open as long as people are here
00:52 <milesforrest> steveklabnik: I'll probably be here awhile then :P
00:52 <steveklabnik> yeah, just saying that freenode keeps all rooms open
00:53 <steveklabnik> as long as some open source project doesnt want to name their project _why
00:53 <steveklabnik> ;)
00:53 <steveklabnik> TECHNICALLy this should have been ##_why
00:53 <steveklabnik> but whatever
00:53 <milesforrest> yeah, we've used #fv.rb for years, which technically should have been ##fv.rb as well.

17:11 <locks> tsion: or else you just get to see one post
17:11 <tsion> locks: oh. i guess i logged in back when it was just starting to get popular, and it has never bothered me since
17:14 <locks> mwunsch_: nice write-up
17:14 <ckolderup> yeah, once you log in once you're pretty much logged in forever
17:15 <ckolderup> and it's a pretty fun site. There's some weird noise in there but also a lot of interesting stuff being written
17:15 <locks> that's… not a creepy way to put it at all
17:15 <ckolderup> :D
17:15 <paulv> oh, the cypherpunks account can't post content b/c they require people to use their real names and "Not a real name" isn't a valid real name.
17:16 <mwunsch_> I find posting information about _why on a site that demands "real names" is more than ironic and amusing.

17:32 <ckolderup> okay, so at least one of the people on the comment thread (early on) was just quick to find the github repo. So if all of them were like that, that's a pretty impressive poem from Chris Pressey
17:33 <ckolderup> pretty well emulates the style of "You Would Do Well To Enjoy This Day"

22:43 <aberant> i wonder if he's going to send something via mail to the people who sent in paypals..
22:44 <aberant> the whole donations and "silver comb" page was just so random..
22:47 <eknutson> what if it's a silver comb literal?
22:47 <ericwood> that'd be pretty awesome
22:47 <aberant> would seem too expensive.. he didn't actually take any money..
22:48 <aberant> suppose anything is possible..
22:48 <ericwood> eh, maybe we'll get a note or something...probably not, though
22:48 <ericwood> I've been checking my mail, though :P
22:48 <aberant> yeah.. stil trying to figure it out.. i mean the last page with his hand covering it would have been enough of an ending..
22:49 <aberant> maybe the only purpose the website served was mutual entertainment..
22:49 * aberant shrugs
22:50 <ericwood> I'm okay with that
23:00 <Norgg> I sent in a paypal payment late, haven't had a refund yet but it hasn't been claimed either.
23:04 <Norgg> Is there a transcript of the whole thing kicking around anywhere yet?
23:07 <Norgg> "His song went on, saying that the skyman was equal to one and the forestman was equal to two and the groundman was equal to three." ... "Then the song said that the difference between the skyman and the groundman was eighty-six."
23:08 <Norgg> Those quotes and the references to the men counting in base 6 have been nudging at my brain for the last few days.
23:08 <Norgg> With 86 in base 6 being 222.
23:10 <Norgg> But it's probably nothing.
23:25 <ericwood> he wants us to go insane
