Bitcoin : Trying to look at the current drama at a more macro level… and then raising the question of whether we are unintentionally creating bloatware?
There has been a lot of grief lately from the development side regarding hot emotions and banning from whatever. Frankly, I could care less. Maybe I’m old, but this crap is so tame compared to the internet in the 90’s. I mean… does anyone actually think this comes anywhere close to goatsy?
But the question of why and where this is coming from is more important to me.
What really bothers me, and has been for a while is that development has lately been really feeling like potential bloatware. All I really wanted was for the damn block limit to be increased like originally planned in 2010. So we get that done, and next thing I know there are planned updates twice a year, bitcoin cash tokens and god knows what else!
Even if there was no worry about getting co-opted, this is just asking for trouble. When you mandate updates, it is human instinct to want to make something to fill in that hole, and by scheduling them we are creating deadlines. Thereby adding a bunch more stress and drama for no good reason at all.
So I’m hoping to start a conversation that moves more in this direction. Thank you for your comments and replies.
