Most people don't think simple enough
Jim Keller
⋅ Lex Fridman
Ponder an interview snippet from an x86-84 spec coauthor, and consider rewriting more often (from scratch). To be precise, do it every 3-5 years "if you want to make a lot of progress on computer architecture." Keller explains this wisdom in terms of diminishing return curves, reminiscent of Moore's Law, and recommends dismissing short-term limitations for long-term success.
