“Adam Roberts suggests that Teletubbies constitutes an example of radical utopian fiction. In this reading, the Teletubbies are an advanced culture which has eliminated all need to work, worry, or struggle in any way, and regressed into a childlike state. Roberts positions the Teletubbies as the endpoint of the science-fictional idea of paradise based on infantilisation.”

Ok, fediverse: I got lucky and need to buy a new laptop. Requirements are: painless experience, rock solid performance, 14-15 inch screen, tour friendly. I’m thinking thinkpad p51 or dell precision 5530. I like the connection count on thinkpad, but don’t necessarily need the numpad. Experiences?

Evaluating approximately 280 applications for the Norwegian Arts Council... Phew... Chewing that mountain one bite at the time...

The fascists just entered into government in Estonia. Because the 15 Muslims in the country pose such a huge threat to somebody’s sense of national purity. Or something. Somebody please let me know when this right-wing populist nightmare will end? Do they have to try something really stupid like building a wall before people realize that shit doesn’t work?

OK, guess I have an application text more or less finished. Now off to comfort crying baby...

Stuff I’ve learnt today: Sometimes in it is better to write a function than to write a class... Writing a class (sometimes) forces you into a mindset of trying to predict every possible use-case, with the associated pile of complexity that entails, instead of just writing that ad hoc function, saving yourself a lot of time and burnt brain cells.

Started the day with a lot of beautiful ideas for code to test and music to make. Approaching the end of the day having sent a million emails and now just refactoring old code... Oh well...

What I learnt today: it usually helps to read the *entire* guide to writing classes before trying to write them... Still, I’m happy with the progress in shaping my very own setup! Getting easier to do complex signal routing on the language side in a more modular way now. github.com/kflak/utils

Linux is about imagination:
"Linux... is... a huge collection of parts. A lot of steel struts, screws, nuts, gears, pulleys, motors, and a few suggestions on what to build. So you start to play with it. You build one of the suggestions and then another. After a while you discover that you have your own ideas of what to make... [Linux] takes on the shape of your imagination. It does what you want."

Through the fogs of low-level cold I managed to produce this class for creating effect chains in SuperCollider:
Still got to do some debugging, but looking promising!

Admin, admin, admin, admin... Once an application is done the next step is to report on the previous project that got supported with the previous application. ...
