Where can the web go

It is interesting to see that Google’s Go Lang and web programming languages are used for more important stuff. I stumbled onto some of code from SpaceX on Github. They are using go web assembly for their iis-simulator. Seems they are also using web components for a lot of their other interfaces too.

Web browsers are sand boxed and they do not provide a lot of features and access to many parts of the operating system. Looking at projects like Discord, visual studio code and lots more, everyone is following the route of wrapping their web applications in their own browsers and wrappers. Through this they gain more access to operating system features by utilizing technology such as electron and nodejs.

But are these technologies memory friendly and future proof? Consider how many times software stacks has changed. These technologies sounds beginner friendly, but are they really the route we want to go?

I’m putting my money on web assembly and the future of compiled code in the web browsers. Rust is leading on that front with their memory safe approach. Go is also following suit and making great progress on that front. This makes it easier for the average programmer and makes the development and testing processes faster.

Taking my own experience into account, where I’ve written quite a few advanced as well as useless programs, in languages ranging from C++, Lua, Python,C#,PhP, Java, Clarion, Sql, Tcl to Delphi. And I have to say that I’m enjoying Go the most. It took some time to learn and to go with the Gopher.

I think despite all the changes, programmers are always going to follow the simplest route. Complex problems will be solved by the simplest languages.

Odd numbered days

Today I’m describing some thoughts that had been prickling away at me the past month or so. I’m expressing it in the form of a few quotes.

Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.

Goodness is the only investment that never fails.

Henry David Thoreau

You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.

William W. Purkey

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you… I could walk through my garden forever.

Alfred Tennyson

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

Lao Tzu

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Freedom is nothing else but the chance to do better.


I don’t believe in aging. I believe in forever altering one’s aspect to the sun.

Virginia Woolf

Try as you will, you cannot annihilate that eternal relic of the human heart, love.

Victor Hugo

The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Mahatma Gandhi

Also seeing what’s going on with SpaceX and our current technology, I found this quote at the right time.

It’s time for the human race to enter the solar system.

Dan Quayle

You can never plan the future by the past.

Edmund Burke

You have to dream before your dreams can come true.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind.

Sigmund Freud

A man should not strive to eliminate his complexes but to get into accord with them: they are legitimately what directs his conduct in the world.

Sigmund Freud

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

John Muir

You may not see the pattern, that’s OK. I’ll leave you with a few more.

Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.

George S. Patton

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.

Henry David Thoreau

It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.


They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.

Tom Bodett

The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is ‘What does a woman want?’

Sigmund Freud

I hope these quotes gets you thinking.

Thanks for reading.

Looking back, thinking forward

Looking back at the past year I noticed that time is moving faster. It’s a relative feeling, faster each year. Is it because we are busy or because we are too engaged in the worlds media and noise.

As an individual it’s up to you to decide what noise to let in and what to use constructively. I’ve learned that it’s good to let things go and only cling to good principles and not to things.

Lets make this year go slower and better by applying the Law of Attraction. I’m starting this year by throwing away the idea that the last few years went by to fast. A good start is a believe in a good start.

Here are a few good quotes for the year

I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.


The trouble is, you think you have time.


Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.


There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.


Time is a storm in which we are all lost.

William Carlos Williams

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.

Charles Darwin

People often complain about lack of time when lack of direction is the real problem.

Zig Ziglar
