None of this is news to me because I am a Speshul Fucking Snowflake who learns by osmosis and absorbed a lot of these concepts while very young from my father, but it's always nice to see someone lay it out clearly for the layperson. This is well written and communicates the concept of technical debt pretty simply for people who have no desire or need to understand software engineering in any kind of depth.

I've been really excited to see all the refactoring and modernising of code and I had kind of forgotten that it might not look very exciting to most people.

Anyway! Yay this entry and I'm glad you're going to go into this in a little more detail in the next news update than have gone into past updates.
