Compassion & Programming: Glen Chiacchieri

View descriptionShare

Glen Chiacchieri has worked at the MIT Media Lab on Scratch, at Dynamicland with Bret Victor, and is now becoming a psychotherapist. He's known for his Legible Mathematics essay, his Flowsheets programming prototypes, and the Laser Socks game, among many other projects.

In this conversation, we discuss:

  • how he grounds his research in compassion,
  • the tradeoffs between working on the "model vs UI" of programming,
  • his software-company-in-the-making, based on Flowsheets,
  • our shared dream for the future of open-source READMEs,
  • and how Dynamicland does and does not point towards the future.
