Oh no. I think he has just begun the process of "open sourcing" so hopefully will get better with time.

I can relate as I'm still adjusting design workflows on Linux after a year. I guess that's part of the point, making digital tool choice/design an integral part of practice. Amazing that it is not considered in most courses TBH.

@KnowPresent oh man I cannot stand Georgia Lupi, and LoL'ed hard at how quickly her bogus "data humanism" escalated to "dataviz is the new ✨branding✨" but that is another conversation.

There's an LGM talk by @eylul I have been meaning to watch (haven't yet) on teaching art with open-source: youtube.com/watch?v=BIoSyF01zT

It's harder than just the students though, at least in UK all major unis have deals with Adobe to get students hooked. I think making it clear they will have to rent these tools for life should start to make it sink in? + recent Venezuela example to illustrate they can pull the plug on your career.

also: turning courses/projects into repositories (e.g. nitter.net/_olliepalmer/status), making a more deliberate use of digital tools the actual subject of some of the teaching, and a requirement for projects. I have not tested these ideas though, just thoughts for now...

@KnowPresent +1000
If I ever go back to teaching in art/design schools it will have to be about this.

Thank you Andy! Excited to contribute. There's lots I want to improve, but also lots to learn about the constraints.

@entreprecariat @cryptpad ah nice to hear! indeed the slide theme is on my radar. I am starting with general UI things to familiarise myself with the code, and then I will dive in to the apps.

I'm delighted to be joining the team at @cryptpad : a collaborative office suite that is open-source and encrypted. I'll be working on design and usability, esp. for the privacy features.


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.

🗓️🔖 2.11.2019
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. 🕸️
