A master was explaining the nature of Tao to one of his novices. "The Tao is embodied in all software -- regardless of how insignificant," said the master.

"Is Tao in a hand-held calculator?" asked the novice.
"It is," came the reply.

"Is the Tao in a video game?" continued the novice.
"It is even in a video game," said the master.

"And is the Tao in the motherboard BIOS for a personal computer?"
The master coughed and shifted his position slightly.
"The lesson is over for today," he said.

📢 Me and @lightone created a Fedi crawler to get an up-to-date list of instances. Existing stats hubs don’t have crawlers; our hope is to fill that gap. We publish the list as a JSON document, and we invite you to use it! Please build something nice and useful with it ^_^ nodes.fediverse.party/

@tindall (I mean to be clear the 432 is a bonkers machine that was DOA, but it is an amazing case study in "hold-my-beer-level CISC" -- it has a hardware garbage collector, transparent single-level store, hardware object-capability addressing and a substantial fraction of Ada's language semantics wired into it.)
