jarotsim, a playground for the discovery, exploration and livecoding of turing machines, is now available for download!

hope you enjoy it! <3

here's the complete video of our <(a)live computing dance> on algorave 10th anniversary!

in case you are curious, it includes the glitches we had as well :)

norpet is a digital pet with hand-powered logic.

its board (or non-electronic digital screen) consists in a grid of logical operations, one per cell, that you have to follow to bring your pet across its different states of life.

norpet is a proof-of-concept of that we developed for the Virtual Pet Jam 2022.

we are happy to announce that 'introduction to uxn programming' is now published as an in , and formats!

originally available online as the tutorial, this is a carefully revised version for you to have it offline and available anytime:

introduction to uxn programming is a beginner's, slow-paced and comprehensive guide of the uxntal programming language and the varvara computer.
written and illustrated by @sejo

Very excited to announce:

💥hydra microgrants 💥
funding for community projects involving hydra video synth

💥Apply by November 7th!! 💥

💥 organised by @hellocatfood
and @ojack , w/ guest judge Monrhea Carter

Live coding: A user's manual out in November! Straight to paperback as well as free (cc-by-sa) PDF / ebook

So, I didn't finish my planned #uxn series of streams where I learn @compudanzas's tutorial this summer. I only finished 3 days and started the fourth day.

You can find links to the records in my garden:

I suppose I'll call it a day and will finish the rest of the tutorial off-screen.

> Technology distances us from each other, causing the social tissue to fall apart. It’s time for the tangible revolutions - being together without screens. Screens have created a distance from the environment that has shaped us, destroying the work of evolution that through hundreds of thousands of years has adapted both the mind and body to the ever changing environment. Nowadays the contact of the digital and physical world has been dominated by the interaction with intermediary screens whose flat surfaces have limited the sensory experience. Screens cause the observation and manipulation of symbols that remove the person from reality.

appreciating the boldness :think_starry_eyes:

Today's inspiration: Analivia Cordeiro's Computer Dances from the 1970s

Escarbando en los archivos coreográficos, de mucho antes de que fuéramos Compudanzas, me encontré con esta descripción de escena para la obra No sé qué es esto (2014)

> Intro: dos personajes sentados al borde ¿videojugando? Ven al público y juegan con él.
> Atrás una secuencia de movimiento con gente representando algo computacional (?)

Interesante que precede a la propuesta de El Computador (2015) que pensé que era el primer registro escrito de lo que eventulamente sería Compudanzas. El "(?)" viene de origen :)

(Searching in our choreographic archives I found the description of a scene with people moving in a sequence "representing something computational". This precedes (2014) what I thought were our first written notes (2015) about dancing a computer)

Synchronous Objects has been resurrected as an archive site after the original was made in Flash

¡hola madrid! a partir de ahora estaremos por aquí creando y compartiendo. estará genial encontrarnos y colaborar :)


we are now based in madrid! it will be great to find each other and collaborate now in the e.u.!

This wiki is about #permacomputing, a radically sustainable approach to computing inspired by permaculture.


We're happy to announce that we just started to work on three new interdependent online resources: the Damaged Earth Catalog, the Permacomputing wiki, and the permacomputing workshop series!


Damaged Earth Catalog

A growing online catalog of the different terms in circulation, used by communities of practice, in relation to computing and network infrastructure informed by ecological ethics, degrowth, resilience, repair, and minimalism. Currently developed by @l03s as part of her PhD research.


Permacomputing wiki

A new wiki about permacomputing that aims to expose its principles, present and discuss the concepts and jargon required to engage with permacomputing, and maintain a repository of related projects. Currently facilitated by @viznut and @320x200 open for contributors!


Permacomputing in the Arts

A workshop series that will be developed throughout end-2022 and 2023 as an onboarding course for permacomputing practices in art an design. The workshops will be made available as an Open Educational Resource. Developed by @320x200 as part of a postdoc research on the topic.

@compudanzas the work you've been documenting on compudanzas has been so much influential for me, thank you for taking the time to collect it all in one place and making it such a welcoming hub.

Today's the first anniversary of our website and gemini capsule at & gemini:// !

We have been enjoying a lot to share our projects, notes and references in that space!

It has been super heartwarming to see how people have connected with our work and ideas ♡

We also want to thank everyone that has supported or contributed to the project in one way or another. We are very glad that what we do is meaningful to you :)

Here is my write-up of my attempts to bring functional programming to #uxn:

"Quoting in Uxntal: lambda functions, tuples and lists for free"

I've done a bit of a revamp to the Uxntal documentation based on some feedback I've received today with the hopes of approaching something like a freeze of the #uxn core specs.

uxn research vs platform 

i guess my take away from the replies to this are:

1. uxn will be frozen (maybe soon)
2. uxn is not yet frozen
3. if you want to create ROMs that never have to be updated, wait until uxn is frozen
4. if you create ROMs now, keep in mind that they may need to be updated
5. do not plan for "old" uxn ROMs to be usable in the future if something changes

thanks everyone, this was enlightening!
