Microsoft Bob, codename 'Utopia', was a project in which Rover the dog introduced Microsoft OS to new users through the metaphor of a house. Come explore the wondrous world of interfaces old and new at @ImpaktFestival 30-10 til 03-11 in Utrecht!

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! https://the-syllabus.com/
I ended up following the advice in this blog post (in french) https://arthurperret.fr/2019/03/07/le-diaporama-au-temps-du-balisage/
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
-V revealjs-url=/.../reveal.js ⬅️ cloned Reveal repo
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.

🖥️🛰️🔬🔭 This time next week I'll be presenting at this conference on media-archaeology practices in art & design at the University of Toulouse 🐓🇫🇷 .
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 #revealjs for presentations? I guess this might be more of a general #nodejs or #npm 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.
