Hello World

Simplicity is Complicated

来自 Rob Pike 关于 Go 的设计心得的演讲:

You have to pick the right feature set, not just features for feature sake. The way I like to think of it is to think the entire world of programming as a vector space of very high dimension, and what you want to do is to define the basis set that covers that vector space, so that you can write the program you want by combining the appropriate orthogonal set of features. When you add features for expressiveness or for fun, you are actually adding more non-basis vectors into that space, and so there become many paths to get to a particular solution.


向量空间的类比让我想到维特根斯坦所说的 “你的言语所达,即你的世界所抵”。
