@tek I’m an artist, not working in tech, so I don’t really have a basis for saying much about it, but after reading this I suppose I will stick with creative coding instead of transitioning into a “proper” job :-)

@tek This is one of the funniest things I’ve read in a long time...

The road to hell is indeed paved with global variables...

@lewislepton thanks for the new tutorials! Are you planning to do one on basic video compositing? Having a hard time find a simple, step-by-step guide to layering and fading video clips in and out.

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!

@FiXato I’m waiting anxiously for that glorious moment...

@FiXato It never does ;-) I was pulled out of bed at 7 by my

@FiXato Because you got up before 7... no such thing as enough sleep when you get up that early.
