I've wondered how much of in-group / out-group behavior is a result of kin recognition adaptations being tricked

If I were writing about self-replicating molecules, I would mention (chemical) chain reactions. I find it odd that others don't.

I think there are at least 2 programming worlds. One focused on strings. The other on numbers. This is even reflected in programming languages. I think most people in one of these worlds don't have an intuitive understanding of the needs of those in the other world.

In English, there are names for vertical & horizontal directions: up (↑), down (↓), left (←), right (→). AFAIK there aren't names for diagonal directions. Suppose someone could make them up. Of course, others would have to use them too. Maybe lup (↖), rup (↗), lown (↙) and rown (↘) :-)

quoted by Charles Iliya Krempeaux on Fri Sep 13th, 2013

You can go far in the beginning with intelligence, but obsessive-compulsiveness may be needed to keep going further after that, and to excel. For some things, intelligence is necessary but not sufficient.

Having to concern yourself with tail-recursion, in a functional programming language, is an abstraction leak.

For software engineering, learning all the abstraction leaks you can, is part of what engineers consider mastery, in the field.

Abstraction Leaks

Let's make a programming language where everything is a set. No loops. But not functions either. You have to construct functions from sets.
