Ahem. Who here likes Verreciel? 🚀🎛🎶 I'm gonna talk for a while about Verreciel.

No, this isn't a surprise announcement. I'm doing work on Verreciel, and would like to talk about it, that's all. And this might be an interesting read, who knows?

Just spent my entire evening signing into two dozen programs on my Android phone. Denying most of them permission to things they have no business accessing.

The walled gardens are the only reason platform migration is this painful.

Parents: ANYONE CAN HURT YOU

Articles: millennials won't answer the doorbell???

Perhaps I should have waited to drink until after all the cooking got done. Or at least until after I had something to eat.

Oh, jeez, the Google has a long long memory.

I haven't used Android since October 2011, but my Pixel 4 has pictures and video from that entire year.

Does anyone have a recommendation for an Android Mastodon client?

I've begun my gradual climb out of Apple's gravity well, and while I'll probably try other OSes, I'm getting up to speed on Android tonight.

We all know the War on Drugs was a targeted racist policy. This is simply fact.

What's interesting to me is how we, white folks especially, still carry those biased connotations with them to this day, even as we allegedly shift to a more weed friendly society.

The Al Harrington story is just one example of how he's really doing some good for a lot of people, but white folks still desperately cling to their biased beliefs in some way.

They can't just let it go.

Wow, FB and Google were explicitly condemned by Amnesty International: "Google and Facebook's insidious control of our digital lives undermines the very essence of privacy and is one of the defining human rights challenges of our era"

Nothing warms my integrated circuits like a long, nerdy phone call with my programmer dad!

🤓🙏🤓

Hey @neauoire ! My dad wants to know: will your Berlin livecoding show be livestreamed or recorded at all? Your prospective viewership is larger than you know.

Also, if you get enough samples of string instruments, you could have an ORCAstra just sayin'

Youtube isn't interested in keeping videos forever. Or even for a long time. They'd rather not keep old videos at all.

New terms of service add a clause to terminate your access "if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable."

All my Shader effects so far.

Time for me to submit my webring PR and move on to other projects, I think! 😃

Started training a bot that tries to analyze and identify hate-speech on Twitter.

A few things became quite apparent after only a few days:

1. There are huge networks of (seemingly) fake accounts that like and retweet each other's posts. Someone is operating this at a _massive_ scale.

2. Reporting and banning fake accounts seems futile. You're fighting a hydra that spawns new accounts quicker than one can report them.

3. I'm feeling sick to my stomach just browsing through the logs.

Speaking of rainbow shapes, check this out! 🌈🔬

Nerilso G. Bocchi and Romeu C. Rocha-Filho, at the Federal University of São Carlos, have translated my reproduction of J. F. Hyde's spiraling Periodic Table into Portuguese, and made it into a

friggin'

MURAL

to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Mendeleev's table. 🍾

And they did a super good job too! One of them has got SERIOUS vector graphics chops. It was probably a pain in the butt to do! I'm super impressed.

🌈

Honestly I think I need to revise the shape on the right, everyone keeps asking me what "RA" stands for.

That's what the pros in the graphic design industry call a "failure"
