i notice a lot of interest in toki pona. as a linguist, i've studied some conlangs and have always had an interest in the general sense. toki pona, however, hasn't stood out to me like it does to some people. does anyone have any longer form writing they'd recommend on "why toki pona" or something similar? i'd love to know more motivations for why ppl are into it and want to use it #tokipona

OBQ008 - Ben Buitendijk
finally finished neuromancer! kind of glad to have finished it, it got a bit numbing about half way through for me. part of reading it felt like just becoming more literate in sci-fi. but another part of me is amazed at how much the work influenced - its hard to unsee now. i feel relieved oddly now that its over though haha #theLibrary
got a new recording interface this week that can do *eight* simultaneous inputs. which is pretty fun to just turn record on and just see what you capture. outside of a little level adjustment, this is basically a live recording. also i made a little llama icon using dotgrid ^__^
today i wrote and recorded this song. its about a seed coming alive.
i purchased a highly discounted ergodox ez split mechanical keyboard from a coworker and wow.... im at like eight wpm hahah. i didn't think ortholinear would feel as weird as it does. just learning qwerty is taking so long i wonder if i should just learn a different layout since it basically feels like i'm learning a new layout anyway 🤔
I am feeling very nihilistic and pessimistic today. This song lifted something off me though. Maybe you will enjoy it too
for aoc day 4, i just did it today, instead of doing it right when it came out. it was kinda fun to just do it as slow as i wanted and take time to learn more about #nim
I haven't really used nim templates that much in the past, I can't belive I can get away with this:
template assign(p: Passport, a: untyped, b: bool) =
p.a = a
p.invalid = true
where `a` can function as both the symbol for the field name *and* the value 🤯
Pre-orders are available for a new album releasing this Friday! I am very proud of the music on this one. Thank you for your support!
