First results of my little experiment are promising! Getting into some cool ways of obscuring and creating video delays with a grid of circles etc... Also managed to get the osc communication going between and oF. Next step: control video effects with the amplitude of live mic input. Who knows, it might even make it into our next piece...

Hi fediverse! I've been sniffing on irc and lately in order to do mastodon and facebook-messenger stuff on the command line, but I can't find any good tutorials on how to set this up. irc seems to be the kind of technology that is second nature to geeks of a certain generation, but to those of us that never touched it before it is veeeery cryptic. All the setup instructions I found assume previous knowledge of the technology and its use cases, which I don't have...

Getting ready to get back into for a bit of interaction between sound, graphics and movement. Excited!

I love learning, but I hate being taught...

Becky Chambers’ new book does not disappoint!

Very excited! One of my current favorite sf writers Becky Chambers’ new book is out on the street, just in time for the weekend :-)

Ah, never mind, found it: “Define a function with the function keyword. If you want to overwrite a function, use function! instead.” Source: andrewscala.com/vimscript/

Can somebody please explain to me the difference between function and function! in ? Can’t find any docs on when to use which...

Getting so used to doing (almost) all of my computer work in the terminal and running a minimal wm (sway), so I’m starting to feel all lost and rusty when I have to wield my wife’s MacBook. Used to be second nature, all that GUI stuff. Now it just feels messy and unpleasant.

The subtle and difficult art of helping the 2-year old just enough that she doesn't notice that she's being helped, thus avoiding triggering the much feared independence-tantrum, which in Norwegian goes a bit like this " Kan sjøl!" or in Estonian (which is even more succinct): "Ise!!!!" Usually followed by howling and throwing herself around on the ground. Very messy.

Reading “What We Think About When We try Not To Think About Global Warming” by Norwegian author Per Espen Stoknes. Highly recommended. Especially when reading it on a plane. The cognitive dissonance is staggering.

Discovered i3status-rs today, a beautiful replacement of i3status written in rust. As a consequence I have neglected proper work for the last half hour :-/ Oh well...

It’s well past time to implement ecocide as an international crime. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecocid

I'd like to take a moment of your timeline to ask folks to use CamelCase in your tags. I didn't know until I came to masto that this helps people who use screen readers parse them as words rather than jumbles of characters. When there are multiple words mashed together in a tag, try capitalising each one, for instance #CommissionMe #CallForArt #LookingForArtist

you can go to an online screen reader site like this one to check out the difference it makes: ttsreader.com #accessibility
