Super long shot question about La Biennale in Venice 

Hi, I'm lucky enough to be able to tag along with some Irish folk and travel to the Biennale in Venice next week.

Silly planning issue on my part: the time I'll be there is technically 'early bird', industry and press time, so no public tickets for mere mortals. I have applied for 'accreditation' as an education worker, but I doubt that will fly (still waiting on a reply).

*Quiite embarrassed buuut* would anybody here know of an organisation, group or person that I could contact for access to the pre-opening?

Thank you !

My tutor is definitively going to appreciate how much time and effort I just spent tuning my md to pdf pipe to produce these beauty pages. I will get extra points because I can change the citation style with my eyes closed, and I can place text in like 12 different areas of my headers and footer. Sooo much appreciation coming my way, sooo much, watch out.

"The Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) has sent a "draft decision" (PDF) to the other European Data Protection Authorities on Facebook's legal trick to bypass the GDPR. @noybeu has published the relevant documents today.

In the DPC’s view Facebook can simply choose to include the agreement on data processing in a "contract", which would make the GDPR requirements for "consent" not apply anymore."

Microsoft has released its Visual TrueType hinting compiler under the MIT license.

This is a set of cli tools, but would allow people to write compatible GUI apps, of course.

It's always been possible for people to write TT hints/instructions directly (ttfautohint outputs them), but VTT is the dominant framework for the industry. Most likely this is good news for GUI font-editor developers (since the freeware VTT app runs fine under Wine already). Still cool news.

We are once again looking for your feedback!

Mike and Adam have been working together on adding a user interface for making custom stroke dash patterns and to make the dash list easier to navigate.

Took me at least 30 mins to come up with a DIY tool to undo this kind of set screw. My brain is on holidays

If you're in Rotterdam this July (22nd-25th), keep reading!

Together with Santiago Pinyol and Luke Murphy we're organizing this year's edition of Relearn in and around the city.
Relearn is an intensive IRL three day collective learning experiment with as many teachers as participants from all backgrounds and disciplines to learn from-and-teach each other, beyond the traditional paradigms of education from an interest in free culture and practices of care.

This year's edition will take place in and focus on Rotterdam. We aim to explore the importance of self-organisation and the use of experimental tools to build alternative systems and economies within the urban fabric of Rotterdam.
Apply by the 30th of June! Find the full text of the open call here -> relearn.be/2021/
