Everyone's talking about Apple's new Swift language, which looks pretty clean.  But the best part I've found so far is that it uses primarily "automated reference counting" (like python) instead of garbage collection.  Finally, a language designer that's not crazy!  Deterministic destructors!  Deterministic memory usage!  Statically compiled!  Non-insane syntax?

It's like my birthday came early.  Now if only they'd announce a new iOS colour scheme that doesn't make me want to gouge my eyes out.

I'm CEO at Tailscale, where we make network problems disappear.
