Bystroushaak's blog

Hello everyone, welcome to my blog. I am a Czech Python programmer, so this blog is a lot about 📂Programming, but also about 📂Philosophy, 📂3D modeling, 📂Technological marvels, and all the magic I can find in the world.

In my spare time, I like to work on open source. I've created several libraries for various languages (Python, D, Smalltalk, ..), and I am also working on my toy programming language 📂tinySelf, and custom personal wiki software called 📂objWiki.

I consider myself to be on a quest for the things that came after the printing press, when people finally realized that they don't have to print a Bible all the time. Except of course I am talking about computers, and the stupidity of our age and especially of my field. For this reason, I like to explore decades old concepts of the software world around structured and object systems. Think Xerox PARC, Engelbart, Genera (lisp), Smalltalk (Kay) and Self (see 📂Series about Self). I have the hope, that one day, I'll become a craftsman worthy of my craft.

Other than that, I am super interested in rationality, autodidactism, and in the study of how one can self-improve.
