✨➡️📦➡️🔮 Idiotic Kernels
I gave a talk at XPUB this morning (Experimental Publishing MA @ Piet Zwart Institute).
We discussed https://almanac.computer and in particular the use of Jupyter Notebooks to develop the project. I argued that they might be used to open up the potential for **idiotic** computing.
'To create idiotic speculators, we suggest the building of speculative machines that encourage idiotic speculation. Such machines, designed properly, are like a computer terminal for financial speculators, but for idiotic speculators.'
