Another day in hellworld. Had to drive 20 miles to university today just to listen to 2 hours of economics from someone who could host a prageru video and saw some guys praising the terrorist for having good memes. I know you shouldn't give up but I don't do anything positive anyways. Hope I can neck myself soon.

You can hate me for it because it's a shitty excuse. I've got avoidant personality disorder and probably depression. I live with my parents and eat what they're having because I can't find the motivation to make food. I tried talking to them about veganism but they resist change. I just can't pursue convincing them anymore because I can't handle people knowing me or what I want because I'm scared of rejection. Even when I have the energy to make my own food I still have to eat meat from time to time because just thinking they might suspect I'm not the most generic and unoffensive person to exist gives me anxiety. I might move to student housing next year and i'll definitely try a vegan diet if that happens. I'll probably never be able to refuse meat if someone offers it though.

I don't think the language is that dependant on Google though. The new versions are supposed to be backwards compatible and the language will barely change. All that's needed are more libraries which Google doesn't make. Yes the origin is shady but it can be a great tool for our community. It's simple, readable and fast so smaller servers will work. It works on every OS, compiles fast so people with bad hardware can compile from source and compiles into a single binary with no need for a runtime so its easy to deploy. It'd be a waste of opportunity not to use it.

I don't think there's much room for telemetry in a programming language. They might not accept pull requests because they don't want to add any new features to the language, just improve what's already there. Golang is not only open source but the licence is pretty liberal so you can fork it. It's a simple program , I don't think it matters it's google

What about backend and desktop apps? I'd much rather have a golang / java desktop app than an electron one. Rust is great but a garbage collector is a plus in most cases. It doesn't give you a lot of freedom but it's accessible and you don't have to be an even bigger genius to read it than the person who wrote it. In foss programs with thousands of developers it seem more important than room to flex your obfuscated one-liners
