  1. Adactio: Journal—Web! What is it good for?

    @tomstuart I guess. But maybe sometimes explaining sources of ideas can't help but sound like that. Or it's just a bit poorly phrased.

    @tomstuart “WHICH PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE DO PEOPLE HATE THE MOST AND WHY?”

    “Tom’s favourite language?”
    “Better.”

    @infovore The endless “Which framework is better?” “What language should I learn to make $$$?” “What are the top languages?” type q’s. Ugh.
