Alan Kay AMA

June 23rd 2016

The start of a better way is similar to the entry point of science "The world is not as it seems". Here, it's "As a human being I'm a collection of traits and behaviors, many of which are atavistic and even detrimental to my progress". Getting aware of how useful cravings for salt, fat, sugar, caffeine, etc., turn into a problem when these are abundant and consumer companies can load foods with them....

Seriously, seriously fascinating AMA with Alan Kay. The topics are incredibly varied and insightful, expanding far beyond computer science into areas like information, entertainment, human development, and the future. I had a blast reading this – I think there's a topic in these conversations for everyone.
