Hi friends, I'm inscript. I'm a theorist and writer. My background is in the history of digital audio and critical theory. I'm interested in philosophy, electronic music, and programming language theory. Glad to be here.

somebody gotta do something about the comedy podcast to ufc content machine pipeline.

former Spotify exec said the quiet part out loud at a music conference last week

@thamesynne ha, this because because you posted 4.0, and I was like "how is this being used"

After a few sittings, I'm very impressed with Manifold Garden. Portal meets The Witness meets Escher.

most production forums are like:
"plz help, my beeps and boops don't sound anything like these clicks and cuts."

"looks like you need to spend more on your beeper for better boops"

I was heading for studio reference headphone land and ended up waist deep in hi-fi headphone quicksand. There's EQ presets everywhere and I just heard someone yell "analytic earpads" in the distance.

Okay y'all I did it! I finished ... well, what I set out to do with this for now. 1.0 of UI-UX-accessibility is done! FOSS folks can look at this and at least know enough to make something that'll work for blind people, to the best of my knowledge. If anyone else has anything to add, just let me know or do a PR. I really hope this is actually useful and goes somewhere. People have been asking for this so maybe it will.

Looking for recommendations for the most capable and polished free video editing software. Open-source ideal but not required. I currently use Reaper which should be fine, but maybe there's something better right under my nose.

I just heard about the idea of hard vs. soft worldbuilding in fiction, and I don't think I've heard of a better way of framing the analytic/continental divide.

The scholar Lauren Berlant just passed away. To celebrate a great thinker's legacy, I'm going to reread parts of "Cruel Optimism" this week:

Thread: About Windows 11's high system requirements. You know, a lot of blind people, who don't have jobs, live on social security and disability money, and who definitely don't have the newest computers, won't get Windows 11. This could have been a great chance for Linux to step up and say loud and proud "Because we support every person's ability to choose their system, and use and learn about computers, we will never force upon users what system they must run. And because we stand proudly with people with disabilities, all blind people are welcome in the world of free and open source software, where they can learn and create just like everyone else."

But no. Gnome, one of the most popular desktops on Linux, is trash with accessibility. KDE is working on it, but that'll take years. Who's ever heard of Mate? And who makes current software for the command line, for users and not other developers?

Can't tell if I want to get into anime, or if I just like the Guts theme.

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
