For more than a year, I've been researching subjective moderation systems as part of my Master's thesis. What I ended up with is TrustNet, a system for representing, and interacting with, computational trust.

In the linked article, I summarize my research, link to the academic article I wrote, the code I produced, and the 30 minute Master's thesis presentation I held at the end of May.

God I hate it when an album has a "Deluxe Edition" with a bunch of shitty demos, rehearsal recordings, and live bootlegs from 1993. Fuck that.

wgpu-rs development is really starting to heat up, just came across this load test project github.com/MacTuitui/wgpu-load I'll be reading through that code for the next couple of days

The use of RSS buttons which lead you directly to the RSS feed in your web browser is one of the greatest crimes ever committed on the web

I've recently started doing these black and white compositional studies in Procreate. They have a twofold benefit:

1) by understanding compositional qualities in painting, my generative art compositions also get better,
2) they scratch my visual creation itch in times of long programming stretches which yield no visual output.

I will now pester you with them. 😆

Consumerism has done this weird trick of pushing "convenience" as a kind of moral sentiment. It does not apply to "work" (or "labor" to those on the left) which is supposed to be non-fun but required.

The central idea seem to be that anything that is not one's "job" should involve as little effort as possible. Laziness is a virtue and anything that requires effort is dismissed as foolish, old-fashioned drudgery. But don't most rewarding things require effort?

If we want people to move away from corporate hegemony, we will also need to convince people that convenience is often not a virtue and that doing things the hard way can be fun, interesting and convivial (not to mention more sustainable, local and humane).

"A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude."

Wow. A new immediate-mode GUI library for Rust, running at 60fps on my phone using WebGL/WebAssembly. emilk.github.io/emigui/index.h My iMac Pro can’t render Finder at 60 fps when I move it around the screen...
