Nice to see both the scale of the problems that Discord is attacking and the detail of the write-up of how they go about it. I always wondered whether migrating from Cassandra to Scylla would be worth it and it turns out that it is.
Extremely cool conceptual work around the CLI and how it could be possible to pry things apart, create proper primitives and communications channels, and make this an infinitely more powerful interface.
Grateful that Hillel Wayne wrote down here that the 4doc model is not the alpha and omega of documentation and that—like with everything—you should keep thinking while you use it.
The model and seeing people slavishly follow it never felt right to me.
After using all kinds of note taking tools (eg. Notational Velocity) at some point some years ago I moved all my personal notes to Bear and it has been my secret productivity boost ever since.
I’m glad to see that they’ve held to the vision and didn’t compromise to get Bear 2 just right. It can be difficult to pull something like that through.
I feel very seen by this.
