* Interesting to note that JavaScript might not provide the memory control I need
* Just bought a dozen books based on his reccomendations
* Looks like he built a tool to track todos with similar goals to the WoofJS Worflow
* Seems like building a relational database from scratch is hard and over my head
* In my gut, I feel like I could just implement all of these things in a super dumb way to start in StreamSheets and if that's too slow I can optimize all this later.
* Definitely doesn't feel like something I should figure out now. I should wait until its a more urgent and immediate problem.
* And it feels like I could just use a JS library or something to hack it for now. These things already exsit.

* Re-watched [Felienne Hermans "Spreadsheets are code lady" video]( Really amazing talk. One insight I had is that if you really want to make spreadsheets more like coding, you need to remove cell references. You can reference columns by their names and rows only by performing operations (filters, finds) on a range of rows. Cell references are the pointers of spreadsheets.

Also: The synchrony hypothesis assumes that all finite and stateless computatinos take zero time so its immaterial whether they happen in sequence or in parallel.
