"XPUB Calling, Do you Copy? Over (...)"
"(...) Go Ahead XPUB. Over"
Graduating students of the Experimental Publishing Master (XPUB), Piet Zwart Institute, invite you to tune into the frequencies of their collective knowledge during an evening and afternoon in Worm (Rotterdam).
What are we transmitting?
Hegemonies of standardised languages, publishing act introspection, ultraterritorality and telecommunications, conversations on food, economies and alternative communities of the Web, participatory narratives, diffractive methodologies, hybrid reality gaming ... These seem all different sorts of waves but in fact they are very much connected. We invite you to eavesdrop on our signal exchanges.

@mediaarchaeologylab Very nice idea to involve an audience into the archiving/publishing proces in that way!
@mediaarchaeologylab This is lovely! Can i ask how you called for responses to the image prompt? Was this an open call?
Today I want to present my 3rd issue of User Sentimental eXperience. It’s about using ‘console.log’ to console yourself!
<Issue3. Console yourself: A chocolate box>
*This work is the best experienced from the computer screen rather than mobile devices Sorry :p*
It's already June. Half of 2022 slipped away. We've been enduring all the pain and frustration from the tenacious pandemic for the last two years. To comfort your fatigue and admire your efforts, hereby I prepared a box of chocolate. I appreciate your persistence. Now I hope the moment of having the chocolate will be small comfort to you.
You've been doing great. Take a bite to console yourself!
To have a piece of it, you'll need to use a specific way though. Click the right button on the current page, and select 'inspect'. On the top menu you'll see a section called 'console'. (*It's not inspector!) In the console, write console.log(''). Inside the '', write any words you want to tell yourself. Any kinds of encouraging comments! (e.g. console.log('To honor my survival in the boring place'). Then press an 'Enter' key. Don't forget to write it inside ' ' mark.
Finally you'll console yourself and have the chocolate!
*Any feedback/critique is welcome. Please let me know if the design breaks down from yr monitor.*

Tomorrow is the launch and open day of the Infraschool: a peer-to-peer learning initiative organised by members of Good Times Bad Times and Varia.
For the first term of the infraschool we'll be learning about digital tools, community infrastructure and cooperative organisation! If any of those sound interesting to you then come along to Varia at 17:00 Wednesday 25th of May :) Unfortunately I won't be able to make it, but I'll be there in spirit!

Videogrep 2.0 is out!
Here's a tutorial about how you can use it to automatically make supercuts on the command line: https://lav.io/notes/videogrep-tutorial/
Reminder: If you're thinking about it, but haven't done so yet – book your spot for our DAAP x Varia workshop in Rotterdam that's coming up pretty soon – Sunday, May 29th.
📌 Full details (incl. RSVP infos): https://www.varia.zone/en/daap-varia.html

"Version 55 of WeasyPrint has been released.
What’s New? (Visible Features)
- performance with improved speed and document size,
- columns can be finely managed and are more solid in many corner cases,
- shorthand properties handle the inherit value,
- text decoration is correctly applied for nested values,
- embedded fonts are smaller and have nice names,
- absolute boxes are correctly positioned in right-to-left,
- SVG images got new tests and small fixes."
Thus I've decided to explore the possibilities of bringing more sentiments and emotions to the web.
From now on, I would like to share with you a series of small web experiments and essays about the user sentimental experience every few weeks.
Here is a link to the first issue, which is a room that I drew to suggest we put down stress about productive behaviours on the digital mediums. You are able to space out here. You'll click elements in the room but may not gain something special.
(*If you open it through your phone I recommend you see it in landscape mode, but it's just a suggestion.)
I will send an email of every issue which will include a link to the work.
I hope you enjoy! Any feedback or collaboration requests are gratefully welcomed. (email@example.com)
<User Sentimental Experience:
I wanna feel too on the web. I wanna look at the screen as if I look beyond the window.>
My passion and love for the web medium have made me think that I want to be a web publisher and designer in the upcoming future. Since then, I've looked around the job market and found UX practice interesting. The idea of drawing a good user experience in our daily digital products is beautiful indeed.
But then I also realised that the user experience meant by the current UX practice is often referring to making all the design elements highly efficient for user performance. Of course this efficiency-orientation is significant, as the web is a functionality-based medium. However, I think good user experience can embrace more than that. What I often miss on the web is a broader variety of sentiments and emotions. I mean feelings that are inviting, warm, energetic, playful, subtle, nostalgic, cute, etc. I believe these are crucial parts of the user experiences as well!
