Pinned toot

I'm an artist. I've been working for startups in Latam for the past 5y as a software engineer. I love to learn. (Currently experiencing a mild existential crisis.)

Tech enthusiast: "I want smart lights, smart tv, everything, and connect them all to my digital assisstant!"

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

Memgrid, as I've started calling it, is now up on Github.

Made a few visual improvements (moved the grid to be drawn via canvas) and added better feedback for interactions.

They use Notion for what I use , but othewise we've got some quite similar workflows.

Also very clean and functional blog design!

1. Consider how you would solve your immediate problem without adding anything new.
2. Doing what everybody else is doing feels like the safest thing, making it the most competitive, and thus the riskiest.

Today is Wendy Carlos's 80th birthday!

She is a pioneer of electronic music, best known for composing the score of TRON (1982) and for her ground-breaking album, "Switched-On Bach" (1968.) In 1978, she came out publicly as a transgender woman, one of the few public figures to do so at the time.

If you enjoy electronic music today, you can thank Wendy Carlos!
