Sounds a bit like he’s re-written Airtable, but still pretty cool.


I’m pretty sure that “Rivers Cuomo” takes singular agreement even if “rivers” is a plural noun.


I guess I’m more of a Don Van Vliet guy. . . keeping ideas on scraps of paper and napkins and old envelopes, and all housed in a paper shopping bag I’m prone to misplacing.


I too just noticed that typo, am facepalming, and have pinged Mark to fix it …

Thank you!

In terms of sheer human thought-hours, Excel has probably produced more computational thinking than all the programming languages put together.

I really doubt that. Most Excel users do nothing with it other than sort columns and SUM() things. It’s glorified calculator-paper for 90% of users, who use close to zero thought-hours. In fact you can argue it actually reduces computational thinking hours instead of creating them on balance.
