A good compromise is when each party is equally unsatisfied. — Larry David
Bret Victor: (I’m) making my hands at Dynamicland. (啁啾会馆个人简介，二零二零年五月一日录)
I worked at NeXT the summer of ’94. I was in the break room with 2 colleagues when Jobs walked in and started making a bagel. We were sitting at a table eating ours when he out of the blue asked us “Who is the most powerful person in the world?” I said Mandela since I had just been there as an international observer for the elections. In his confident fashion he stated “NO!…You are all wrong…The most powerful person in the world is the story teller.” At this point I was thinking to myself “Steve, I love you but there is a fine line between genius and loco…and I think I am witnessing this right now.” Steve continued, “The storyteller sets the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation that is to come and Disney has a monopoly on the storyteller business. You know what? I am tired of that bullshit, I am going to be the next storyteller.” And he walked out with his bagel.

十年前的我会想买台崭新的 MacBook Pro 好好犒赏自己爽一下。现在？也许没那么简单了。我想要一个有希望的社会、环境可以生活在里面。
Those uncompromising compromisers have got to be stopped! Their absurd ‘two sides to every argument’ propaganda is a threat to the very fabric of society.
