Updated the repository for my recent work attempting to map Youtube recommendations.

:www_server: Architectures of Choice - Vol.1: Youtube

I ended up following the advice in this blog post (in french)

Basically going through Pandoc to convert the markdown to Reveal.js HTML. This adds a few bonuses like citations and fenced divs. You can pass the location of a central Reveal install as arg to Pandoc.
My build command looks like this:

-t revealjs -s
-o talk.html
--bibliography /.../Zotero.bib
--csl /.../harvard-cite-them-right.csl
-V revealjs-url=/.../reveal.js ⬅️ cloned Reveal repo
-V theme=white

Si vous aussi vous trouvez que wikipedia ne s'y connait pas trop en design, avec, on organise une session "Documentons le design sur wikipedia" le 25 octobre au palais universitaire de Strasbourg. C'est par ici pour s'inscrire:

LoL at this Adobe podcast on the "UI/UX Monoculture" that of course doesn't mention the design software monoculture.


Hi does anyone here use for presentations? I guess this might be more of a general or question but: how do you set up a central Reveal install and then store your markdown presentations in various places on disk? My tests so far involved cloning the whole Reveal repo for one presentation, and that just seems silly to replicate each time.

I believe this will add up, boosts appreciated.

"Financial Music" a review of the "Spotify Teardown" book by Robin James, starting with this great quote.


duh made another repo set to private on Gitlab, published through Netlify with cross-origin allowed, and serving fonts from there.

@andybroomfield @KnowPresent

How should I serve proprietary webfonts for a static website published with Netlify via Gitlab? I'm pretty sure committing them to a public repo would breach the license...
(please don't advise to not use the font 🙃)

This time next week I'll be starting a workshop at ENSCI in Paris . We'll attempt to map recommendation systems + think about the role of instruments in this mapping.
