Bret Victor - Inventing on Principle
Ideas are very important to me. Bringing ideas to the world are one of the most important thing for people do.
and I think that great ideas in the form of great art, stories, inventions,
scientific theories these thing take on lives of their own which give meaning to our lives as people.
So, I think a lot about how people create ideas and how ideas grow and in particular, what sorts of tools create a healthy environment for ideas to grow.
I've spent a lot of time over the years making creative tools, using creative tools, thinking about this a lot and here's something I've come to believe,
creators need an immediate connection to what they create.
When you making something you need to see the effect of that immediately.
Creators need an immediate connection to what they are creating.
Creators have to be able to see what they are doing.

They've subsidised Windows preloads for decades, using co-op marketing
subsidies without which most PC models would lose money. That's a key
part of how they control the OEMs.
Interesting. I wonder how much is that everyone is tired of M$ market dominance?
