The stones were called pessoi and the Greeks would sometimes write the names of their enemies upon them. In the past, archaeologists thought these stones were counters for a game. One modern Greek writer, Gregory Zorzos, has doubled down on this theory although there is absolutely no historical basis for the board game he describes in his book:
Basically this got his talk on compile-time reflection downgraded from keynote to regular talk. Cope, seethe and dilation ensues.
For more context: a month ago, a lot of what I thought were decent sounding talks were just straight up rejected from RustConf and this caused a lot of twitter seethe. Additionally, there was a whole trademark debacle where the rust foundations tried to claim the rust logo as their intellectual property, causing a lot of pushback.
Overall, I think the larger trend is the corpo-fication of rust. Look at all the jewish chads from Amazon, Google, etc. in the leadership of the Rust foundation. Very bearish on the future of the language, especially since a lot of its semantics remain unspecified. Will rust be coopted by the tech cartel like all the web standards did and become r-slurred? !codecels discuss.

US District Judge Amit Mehta said that while Watkins was not the leader of the Oath Keepers' mob - she was not 'just foot soldier,' and recruited at least three others charged in the riots
!chuds so you do love the gock?
Watkins was jailed the day after the Oath Keepers founder and leader Stewart Rhodes was sentenced to 18 years for seditious conspiracy - the longest term for a January 6 rioter.
Mehta said it was 'particularly hard' to issue a sentence for Watkins after she testified during trial about the struggles she faced with her transgender identity and her cooperation with law enforcement officials.
She condemned the violence by rioters who assaulted police, but said she knows her presence at the Capitol 'probably inspired those people to a degree.' She described herself as 'just another idiot running around the Capitol.' 'And today you're going to hold this idiot responsible,' she told the judge.
