This interview is really interesting, from a technical and historical perspective - cracking old Apple II edutainment games to reveal the way we taught math, science, reading, etc. in the 80s. If someone made a project of streaming these, it would be a cool way to make them even more accessible! paleotronic.com/2018/06/15/con

cytoplasm experiment? the fluid is made of particles which render very small, have relatively low drag, and have a higher repulsive radius. i like how this feels but the system is too slow to handle many cells like this.

As a subcategory of capitalist realism I feel like Twitter realism is also a thing like... where these totalizing social media platforms have only been around for the last 10 years but people have literally stopped being able to imagine ways of using the internet that aren't defined by ads, metrics, clout, cynically trying to take up more and more of people's time and limit how they use it... or like, that thinking of past alternatives to this is "unrealistic" now for some reason

@ramsey yes I want a star trek spin-off about keiko and her botanist pals as they go from planet to planet conducting surveys, except it's not narrative, it's presented in a format like a PBS science show

god willing, "final" thoughts on the meditations games stuff-- Show more

On today’s walk: I saw a coyote!

We both carried on doing what we were doing (which was, well, walking), but with a lot of looking at each other while we did it.

They were a very good canid.

my advice for creating stuff is just to make a shittier version of the thing you want to create. Then years later you will look back on it and realise you actually made the good version, you just didn't realise it at the time

but also I cannot wait to make a very pretty and sleek keeb

This keyboard has garnered so many compliments... and is also one of the “ugliest” things I’ve ever made.

It makes me think of how I used to wish websites in the 90s should look nicer, and now websites are so nice that I (and everyone else) longs for the messy, mismatched, and glitchy. Same with games.

We want the rough edges that signify amateur creativity and an accessible medium, because beauty can be so easily commodified.

...so I guess the aesthetic here is anti-capitalist? XD
