During this session we will dive into a recent paper by Abeba Birhane entitled Algorithmic injustice: a relational ethics approach. Abeba has recently completed a PhD in cognitive sciences and her research sits at the intersection of complex adaptive systems, machine learning, and critical race studies. The paper investigates ways to address algorithmic injustice that go way beyond efforts to build more inclusive/representative, and “debiased” datasets.

🥊 ON ONE SIDE: NetFlix USA

Broadcasting 3days before the extradition appeal of Assange in London "We Steal Secrets", a 2013 documentary deceptive even in its title, entirely aimed at criminalizing the journalistic activities of WikiLeaks.

🥊 ON THE OTHER SIDE: The Internetz

Broadcasting over PeerTube a playlist of 5 documentaries (dated 2019 to 2021) all fact-based, researched and truthful.

hello world! we are exploring computation at a human scale, in pedagogical, performative and/or speculative ways :)

very glad to be here!

currently we are starting to develop the technique, a proposal for movement practice based on the computational transformation of sequences within a constrained vocabulary. this as part of a micro-residency in the fall phase of the conference.

recently we completed the tutorial that some of you might be aware of.

you can find about this and more in the web and in gemini:

* compudanzas.net/now.html
* gemini://compudanzas.net/now.g

I don't know. Maybe it's time to make this public.

If you are trying to learn audio programming and DSP from scratch (like, *really* from scratch), these notes might be the place to start:

mu.krj.st/

They were lecture notes for a student-led 1-credit audio programming course that I taught in the spring this year, but it's now a course for everyone. Some sections are still in revision, but the main contents are mostly complete.

It's probably more low level and UNIX-centric than most of the audio programming tutorials you can find, so don't expect to learn how to make an audio plugin using JUCE or how to make fancy GUIs etc. But maybe this can be a good thing.

caveats:
1. you need to know basic C and UNIX shell utilities
2. it contains math, but at most calculus level

I feel this could be relevant for LURK & friends:

Call for contributors - Chiptune studies reader:

"We are excited to announce that we are seeking contributions for The Chiptune Studies Reader, an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed and edited volume on chiptune - or 'chipmusic' and 'micromusic' as it is also known - which we intend to publish through Oxford University Press.

The invitation to submit an abstract is open to scholars in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, as well as chiptune practitioners and fans."

@pixouls I used diagrams.net/draw.io in the end (the Apache licensed one). The fact that I could fix the connection points anywhere I wanted really helped (it's also possible on the other one, but when you move blocks, the connection points start to slide to be visually smart, which is great, but not for this use case). It looks like a mess, but now I know where to put what and which cables I'm missing. Also, was easier like this than doing it with the real hardware :)

@exquisitecorp @oleksiy After your Tux Paint bumper sticker, I'm starting to see a pattern...

The computer as symbolic sewer :www_server:

‘Study an information system and neglect its standards, wires, and settings, and you
miss equally essential aspects of aesthetics, justice and change. Perhaps if we stopped
thinking of computers as information highways and began to think of them more
modestly as symbolic sewers, this realm would open up a bit.’

From: Susan Leigh Star, The Ethnography of Infrastructure, 1999.

I spoke to artist Joana Moll about her new piece for the Media Wall at The Photographers' Gallery last week.

We discussed microprocessors, their impact on the environment and the role of artists and the art world in the transition to a less polluting society.

@gamemakingtools check the other replies, 2 web applications were mentioned and I found them quite fitting for my use case, maybe they could be useful for you too?

@liaizon @pixouls @cmos4040 @exquisitecorp @rra

@nilsreichert also mentioned diagrams.net (thanks!). I tried it quickly and it is much more advanced/complete than Excalidraw. A bit like a web version of dia. But it does the arbitrary connecting point feature that dia misses. It's definitively less quick and dirty than Excalidraw, which I really like, but the algo/implementation of object grouping and connecting points positioning while moving things around is much more solid! I think I'm gonna use this and see how far I go. Ultimately I think these two options are pretty good, the diff will probably be between speed to sketch versus accuracy.

PS: Diagrams.net is Apache licensed, and they also provide an electron app.

Basically liturgical in structure, OREMA uses standard petitions and intercessions stored on magnetic tapes in Latin, Hebrew, and FORTRAN.

@pixouls Oooh. So your mention of whiteboard tools sent me into a mini rabbit hole trip into miro alternatives and I found this thing excalidraw.com it's MIT licensed, can be self-hosted (although for a one time use, I will just use their demo site), and it's basically it! Simple arbitrary diagram sketching! Awesome 🎉
@exquisitecorp @cmos4040 @rra

@gamemakingtools thanks, I was thinking about this too, but indeed I'd need something more flexible that does not make any assumption on the kind of structure needed. Surprisingly it's not so obvious to find...

@pixouls @rra @exquisitecorp Oh thanks for that! I was looking for something something much much more simple, like "put some boxes, add connectors, connect" kind of thing. The idea is to get an idea of how to plug a bunch of synths together with a mixer and a patchbay. But I'm going to bookmark your links though because I was also looking into these a while ago with @cmos4040 for actual circuit design :)


Hello world! I'm a creative web developer with an interest in all things inter-networked.

I've made a collection of creative web experiences with Three.js and p5.js, you can check these out on my portfolio website: jhancock532.github.io

I wrote a dissertation on creative uses of DevTools in net art and across the web, based on the view of net art being a participatory performance - more than happy to ping over a copy if you're interested.

Something interesting I saw yesterday was a VR streamer discussing the philiosophy of being a "real person" in VR as opposed to reality. They didn't think there was a difference, they felt that being able to have complete control over your personal expression in VR actually helped portray an authentic self - a closer "melding of consciousness". The streamer then casually walked into a bar where two other streamers were having a conversation about Lain and VR drugs. This scene feels like it's at the forefront of the internet and where it's going.

I'll be posting any observations and insights I find throughout my online travels to this account. Best wishes.

@exquisitecorp @rra @cmos4040 I'm actually considering doing it in Pd... I can just set arbitrary inlet/outlets on sub patches... will just look a bit messy without fancy algo to make the wiring tidy but... could work? :thinknyan:
