I used NetBSD for a while back in the day, and I loved the Real Unix purity and simplicity after years of desktop Linux distros, but I missed some of the userland idiosyncracies and hardware support. Then I found out about Gentoo, and to me it's been the best of both worlds, starting with Portage which obviously owes a lot to BSD Ports.
Of course, I don't recommend Gentoo to anyone, because the collective wisdom of
"Why?" is still a valid question; and science says we lack the tools to gather evidence of "why?".
IMHO, "why" questions either form an endless chain or are completely subjective, so they are far from valid in any scientific setting. For example, some say the reason god created the universe is love. Why love? What's the point of love? What's the point of that point? The only way to end this chain is by invoking some value, which is inherently subjective (even if a great number of peole share values).
Of course, the same can be said about the "what" and "how" questions of science. You can always dig deeper into nature and never find out how everything really works. However, we still do it because it's fun to know and understand things.
Do you still get the occasional partygoer who says they have connectivity, and they really really want you to play this great song from Youtube or Spotify with their phone? Because that's why DJs have all the fancy equipment and skills, to plug in someone's phone.
Connectivity is one reason why I stay away from closed systems like Spotify. Even with good signal, I wouldn't take the risk of something happening halfway, I really need the entire song on my machine. However, it's more about the principles and practice of DJing. For starters, I need the actual file for loading on the digital turntable and some analysis/planning to get a smooth mix. If someone wants to show off their 1337 Spotify skillz, then by all means do it, take my place for the rest of the night and let me hit the bottle.
It's the Dawg Star, but navigating with it will be difficult. Too dim.

The article's author uses a couple recent major titles as backdrop for the discussion: "With both Diablo III and Destiny, I'm not sure where and how to attribute my enjoyment. Yes, the mechanics of both are sound, but given the resounding emptiness felt when played solo, perhaps the co-op element is compensating. I'd go so far as to argue games can be less mechanically compelling, so long as the multiplayer element is engaging. The thrill of barking orders at friends can, in a way, cover design flaws. I hem and haw on the quality of each game's mechanics because the co-op aspect literally distracted me from engaging with them to some degree."
