Hi Merveilles folks - I'm assembling a syllabus for an online intro-level course about Distributed Media. Does anyone know of anything similar already out there? Otherwise, any suggestions (other than the obvious - Beaker, etc.) on what materials such a course should cover? Thanks in advance.

@sir Big fan of Sourcehut - just wish I could figure out how it works. I used the docu to set up repos but mainly just want to make a blog that looks like yours. Using and other drapps in meantime...

Anyone have any wiki hosting recommendations other than Sourcehut?

Quick question for anyone here: any recommendations for current p2p videoconferencing apps as alternative to Zoom? I'm familiar with hypercast but it hasn't been developed much and I'm wondering if there's something else out there.

@neauoire how close did you get to Bikini Atoll on your trip up from the Marshall Islands to Japan? I'm struggling to get Orca to talk to Tidal - installed ORCA2Tidal but not sure where to go from there - should I go via udp or osc? Not clear from your desc how to trigger sound events in Tidal from Orca. Any recommendations?

A lot of the usual suspects are already in - Satie, Nancarrow, minimalism, Deep Listening, Eno, Scanner, industrial, microsound, black MIDI, ambisonics, algorave - but what else?

Currently brainstorming for a book proposal about "extreme listening" - what comes to mind?

I've also been following the chipmusic scene since attending BlipFest in Tokyo in 2012, which is when I first came across Devine's work as Aliceffekt as well a lot of other people in the scene, some of whom I've interviewed (Bitshifter, gwEm, Omodaka). Other interests include black MIDI, microsound and Onkyo, mallsoft, field recordings, etc.

Happy to be aboard, virtually if not literally!
