Here is a list of Black Panther Party Community Programs 1966-1982 (1/2) 

Meanwhile it helps to tune to a positive signal, like Merveilles; like the limbs of a giant mechanical scorpion-inspired vehicle, we each alternate between dangling above the scorched dunes and dragging our collective bulk a cubit nearer to the horizon.

Beyond it lies our shared goal: the sprawling McMansion city known as Complacency, whose high gypsum walls and smug balustrades will crumble like so many stale meringues to the repeated blows of our GLEAMING SCORPION TAIL.

Onward to glory! 🏰🦂

Quick follow-up: thanks for reaching out, everyone, but to be clear, I meant to express gratitude for the positivity and focus that are already here!

I didn't mean to petition you for more, though I do appreciate it 😅

My stressors are pretty typical, frankly: money's tight, projects are being neglected, the world is on fire, and my lifelong fight with disorganization continues. I think we all take turns feeling these things, so, yay camraderie! And, this'll pass. 😁

I'm needing some positivity and focus, and here is where to find it.

I'm grateful as ever, Merveilles. :tealheart: :merveilles:

"the iconic American planemaker and its subcontractors have relied on temporary workers making as little as $9 an hour to develop and test software"

Why not $8? I'm sure there is a way bloomberg.com/news/articles/20

Very happy to have my five "Traverler Girls" pieces on an art show called Power in Numbers 5 at Gallery Nucleus, You can see them for a weekend only if you are in the Los Angeles/Alhambra area, there are in "postcard format" (size) and there will be more than a hundred talented artist and me 🙃 , check it out if you can. 🙏

Been playing with using 1-bit dithered photos as wallpapers.

Aw, SHIT I've been sitting on it! now the front edge is crumpled 😬

Winter is coming

Collapse OS aims to soften the blow. It is a z80 kernel and a collection of programs, tools and documentation that aims to preserve our ability to program microcontrollers through civilizational collapse.

There's lots more going on in the matrix demo— MSDFs, a homemade bloom pass, and color dithering— but I've already rambled quite a bit. So if you've got any questions for me about anything, I'd be happy to answer them 😁, but I'll save the other topics for future threads

What REGL lacks in standard features it makes up for in compositional power. It leans heavily on partial application; if you're drawing many things to the same full screen quad (like when performing GPU computation or special effects), you can shape your code like so:

drawMyGiantQuad(() => {
drawMyCompute();
drawBloom();
drawTint();
copyToScreen();
});

This makes the construction of a special effects system pretty trivial. github.com/rezmason/matrix has my whole project laid out in full. 🤓

Say hello to . regl.party/

REGL is a WebGL wrapper that takes a functional approach to drawing things. While ThreeJS and A-Frame's strengths lie in getting your 3D scene/cameras up and running, REGL's strength is in its flexible drawing paradigm.

For instance, my Matrix code has no scene or camera; ThreeJS insists I make both. EffectComposer hides one of each inside it! But REGL only insists that I have a vertex shader, a fragment shader, and the data to feed them with.
