↪️ 👀 🐷 Activists Turn Facial Recognition Tools Against the Police
I was a bit disappointed by Paolo Cirio's recent attempt, whose sole purpose seemed to get shut down. (was enraged at the shut down itself too obvs. esp. FR interior minister censoring an art exhibit). Good to learn of other similar projects out there.

'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.'

✨➡️📦➡️🔮 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.
🌐 The website for Scrolling the Arcane is online. It replicates the dome of the Porto Planetarium where the show is taking place.
BTW first bit of writing since the thesis and I definitely have PhD PTSD.
(not to make light of actual PTSD)
✨ 📘 ✨ Very happy that my almanac.computer is part of Scrolling the Arcane, a show curated by Joana Pestana in the dome of the Porto Planetarium.
400+ blocks into this Are.na channel I can confirm that COVID-19 is in fact a diagram.

CryptPad v3.22.0 (WoollyMammoth) is now live on CryptPad.fr. Its release notes are available on GitHub at https://github.com/xwiki-labs/cryptpad/releases/tag/3.22.0
FYI this logo is done in LaTeX.
For now it mainly consists of an Are.na account:
and my old Instagram which I renamed:
Eventually I'd like to host Diagramstagram, a Pixelfed instance dedicated to diagrams. But that will take a while.
In the meantime I will mirror the Instagram to this fine instance. (I already mirror to are.na as I want the Instagram to be as disposable as possible)
I'm "rebranding" my independent research and practice going forward to: The Institute of Diagram Studies. This will include projects, publications, and any other slow burners I manage on the side of my full-time job.
