It's November, which means it's National Novel Generation Month, where people write code that writes a novel!

I would love to see more beginner programmers participate, so I just wrote a blog post that highlights some very simple novel generators that were made last year.

Next week I'll be at IMPAKT Festival in Utrecht NL, on a panel about "Calm Technology" with Olia Lialina, @ccl , and Annet Dekker as moderator—curated by @l03s as part of the festival theme: Speculative Interfaces. I'll talk about mapping Youtube recommendations, and the possibility of perhaps, maybe, chilling out within algorithmic traps. 🕸️

📰 just got my first delivery of The Syllabus, a pick-and-choose PDF newsletter with links to academic papers, articles, podcasts, etc... founded by Evgeny Morozov. Pretty top-notch selection! the-syllabus.com/

I ended up following the advice in this blog post (in french) arthurperret.fr/2019/03/07/le-

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:

pandoc talk.md
-t revealjs -s
-o talk.html
--filter=/usr/bin/pandoc-citeproc
--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 @Thibault_Thms@twitter.com, on organise une session "Documentons le design sur wikipedia" le 25 octobre au palais universitaire de Strasbourg. C'est par ici pour s'inscrire: https://framaforms.org/participation-a-la-session-documentons-le-design-du-25102019-1570688732

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.
