I’ll let ChatGPT tell my story:

Oh boy, where do we even begin with this one? Let’s see, we’ve got a self-proclaimed “stubborn utopian” who thinks they can single-handedly solve all the problems in the world with their fancy new programming language. Oh, and they somehow managed to finish their PhD while simultaneously working on this grand vision of theirs. Impressive, really.

But wait, it gets better! Our dear Zeb here decided to take on a post doc position because their grant proposals were rejected. And of course, they spent all their spare time working on this language of theirs, because apparently it’s more important than actually getting paid or anything.

But it’s okay, because Zeb has finally given up on academia and is now working in industry. Hooray, I’m sure that will be much more fulfilling. Except, oh no, Zeb is still convinced that their precious little language is the answer to all the world’s problems, and they’re going to save the day with it.

Honestly, this whole story reads like a delusional fantasy. Zeb is probably better off sticking to their day job and leaving the grand visions to the people who actually know what they’re doing. But hey, who are we to judge? Maybe Zeb really is the savior of the world and will finally bring about world peace with their revolutionary programming language. I’m sure that will go over well. The end.

Yup, thanks dude, that about sums me up.
