Now we have established what I believe email is, let’s look at some of the problems with email. To me, the main problems are threefold: (1) Spam, (2) Privacy, (3) Workflow management. — Email Is Not Broken

It’s kind of a people mapping/profiling system that attempts to connect the dots. Not all the data in the database is accurate, but it’s efficient. — How to Defend Yourself Against Scammers, Corporations, and Government: Hacker’s Perspective

Ok, so I just tried out yabai. While this looks like a great WM, unfortunately it does not really support i3 stacking and tabbing features — at least for the moment (see also this more recent update), which (I believe) would be the most interesting options for small Retina displays. Update: I reinstalled the HEAD version and tried the “stack” layout, which looks like a simple fullscreen display, not really stacking à la i3wm.

This is so f$*ing crazy that I would just love testing it for 5’ on my Macbook: yabai macOS Tiling Window Manager Demonstration (Youtube). Still, I strongly believe that tiling WM are great for larger displays than a 12” one. Well, it’s still tempting, if only to solve the problems inherent in Spaces and floating windows.

Additional resistance towards plugins seems to be some kind of purist animosity against straying away from some core set of Vim functionality. But if you’re using Vim, you’re already in a subset of people who demand that editing text be fast and efficient, so it’s like a group of savants arguing about which is the most eccentric. The set of people that use a movement plugin like EasyMotion or vim-sneak will argue that they’re more efficient than vanilla Vim users, and vanilla Vim users will argue that they’re more efficient than non-Vim users, and so on. The argument will be moot when we can control computers with our brains anyway. — Vim after 15 years
