I've just read that Pauline Oliveros went to one of the Michigan Womyns Music Festivals and I want to more about /when/ she went and what was going on with that, but also I don't have time and I worry about what I might find.

This seems to be the URL of the site. sonstream.com/rc19/

QAnon Has Taken Over Far-Right Platform Gab

"In the last couple of days, Torba claims that over 1 million new users have signed up, many of them QAnon adherents. While Gab’s user base has been growing for some time, its growth since the 2020 election has been exponential.

Evidence of this growth is seen in the main QAnon groups. At the time of the election, the biggest QAnon group had around 24,000 members. On Wednesday its membership stood at over 162,000 and rising fast.

There are at least two other public QAnon groups with over 100,000 members, and many more with smaller memberships."


My colleagues all want to use fancy low latency stuff but I just want to use what's cheap and easy. My status as a network music expert is in peril.

What sounds better for simultaneous singers? WebRTC (aka Jitsi Meet) or Zoom?

I'm going to have my arduino students use PD instead of max. They're on windows and max. I'm on linux. Everytime I look away from PD, the versions get juggled around. What should I tell them to download?

Does anyone have memory of a proposal to devolve into concurrent regional events? I want to cite it in a paper and need a link or email list information or suchlike.

Have any of you ever made a friend via an video chat application like Zoom, Teams, Jitsi Meet, etc?

Asking because I'm writing an article.

"However, . . . researchers subsequently discovered that it is possible to form close, personal relationships online" .... jfc

What if the real research was the friends we made along the way?

Doing a review of papers about online friendship formatting in virtual vs text-based contexts because I want to know the "speed" of these vs each other and real life and these papers are just really not fun to read at all.

Disco S3E6 soilders 

Seriously, if they're going to have plots hinge on issues like musicology, they should have a musicologist on the ship. They had a cello handy, for pete's sake.

Federation ships should care folklorists, linguists, ethnographers and so forth.

(I really hope the everyone-knows-this-lullaby is a red herring. If it was super popular during any time subspace communications were active, that would easily explain why everyone knew it and treating this is mysterious is silly.)
