According to this comment on HN:

> My favorite part of this story is that they DAO has actually raised ~$8m, spent $3m on the book (10x the expected auction price), then the "core team" has started paying themselves ~$30k a month each[0]. Also, how is this "decentralised" when one person owns over 50% of the voting token?

Software itself does not make a community.

It’s people do.

To understand why millennials hate you, you must understand capitalism. To understand capitalism, imagine being forced to play a game of Monopoly where one person starts with nearly all the money in the bank and all the properties… and what about you? Fuck you, that’s what.

The nice thing about Node development is that if I want to waste some time, I can just spend hours upgrading my dependencies. Always a reliable way to feel like I'm doing something useful, when really it's just procrastination

Sometimes when I'm helping a non-techie with computer issues, and the best advice I can give them is "did you try turning it off and back on again," I wonder if they think I'm not really trying to help them, or that I'm withholding some secret computer science knowledge from them. But no – this is the big insight! When you're a programmer, you realize that programmers don't really know what they're doing. All software is terrible. And our collective misfortune, as users, is to do battle with it
