#OtD 16 May 1920 workers at Knocklong creamery in County Limerick declared a soviet and established workers' control of production. They hoisted a red flag and a tricolour and for 5 days ran it with the slogan "We make butter not profits" https://libcom.org/library/limerick-soviet-april-1919

And then there's the whole issue of GUIs.
I have never written a graphical application using a UI framework.
I've started some, but working with UI frameworks sucks. I can't imagine starting with one for my first application.
I've done web UIs for years, and they aren't *easy* but they're way easier than working with modern UI frameworks.
Which, I guess, is why Electron is so popular.
In the 80s, my aunt (a child) and my grandmother (someone who, today, can't even effectively operate her Television) wrote a series of computer programs from which they ran my grandfather's business.
They generated invoices and printed them, scheduled jobs, kept a list of customers, etc.
They did it all with an Atari 8-bit computer, and the included BASIC.
@TerryHancock @natecull @ajroach42 There's an ancient commercial visualisation tool called AVS that had a flow based system; see: https://www.avs.com/avs-express/ you can just about see at the bottom of that page an example graph; I used it decades ago and it was quite neat, the pips on the nodes correspond to types of parameters.
I've always thought it would be pretty cool to have a GUI based on flow-programming (like the Blender node system). Where programs would be programmable nodes with defined inputs and outputs.
It's very similar to the notion of Unix streams and pipes, but actually more flexible, since you can have more channels.
There's a Qt library for doing this kind of design, called "Floppy", I don't know if it would apply as a GUI shell.
Smartphones and tablets are here to stay. GUIs are a part of life.
The solution isn't to push users back to the command line. The solution must be to bring composability to the graphical environment.
