1 day school, 1 day study, 3 days new PL company
new company: statistical relation AI
Coding is not the new literacy
Where Jaime and Chris agree
Chris thought models should already be entirely intuiative. Should be able to write things down without any training.
who would actually use this?
semi-structured is good
like google email search
broken states are useful on the way to the next valid state
(note to self: look into the new editor thing that the guy who made codemirror)
not highest leverage thing to work on. language improvement is highest expected value
who is the user?
goal was too general
user was too broad
does not prioritize any one design over another
difficult to make a decision, agonizing over each one
constantly stuck at each branch in the road
need a bunch of use-cases, users, problems, principles
really nice to have a customer
they are going to have a consulting side of the company
how he got job at Eve
they rejected him in interview, but then got along well at conference
