Cory Arcangel’s new book is just tweets of people saying they’re working on their novel. This is simultaneously amazing and also forming a deep pit of despair in my gut.

A growing genre of API/search/program/collate as conceptual poetry (or literature).

GODDAMN

"Technically it’s malware. But there’s no patch yet, and pretty much everyone’s got it. Homes up and down the block are lit up, even at this early hour. Thankfully this one is fairly benign. It sets off the alarm with [dubstep] music I blacklisted decades ago on Pandora. It takes a picture of me as I get out of the shower every morning and uploads it to Facebook. No big deal.

[….]

When I moved into my house in the 20s, I went with an Android-compatible system because there were more accessories and they were better designed. But then I changed jobs and now my home doesn’t work with my company-issued phone. Which is a bummer because I have to keep this giant 7-inch tablet around to control everything and Google doesn’t support the hardware anymore so I can’t update it and now the door just randomly unlocks. Ugh, I’m going to have to start using keys again."

Forget the Shortest Route Across a City; New Algorithm Finds the Most Beautiful

technologyreview.com

If you prefer beautiful routes over short ones, GPS mapping algorithms are of little use. But Yahoo researchers have come up with an approach that could change that.

"I taught at Yale for five years when I was managing editor and what I tried to stress for students interested in journalism, rather than picking a specialty, like blogging or being a videographer, was to master the basics of really good storytelling, have curiosity and a sense of how a topic is different than a story, and actually go out and witness and report. If you hone those skills, you will be in demand, as those talents are prized. There is too much journalism right now that is just based on people scraping the Internet and riffing off something else."

TRIANGULATION | Joanie Lemercier

TRIANGULATION

I’m obsessed with geometric patterns.
I can’t stop drawing them.
And the triangle is my favourite shape over all.

To pursue my never-ending quest of finding the perfect triangular pattern, I make simple tools.
This tool will allow you to generate Delaunay and Voromoi diagrams from a set of point, and export the result as an svg file.

" You may have heard of "free" software before. One common belief is that it’s free of cost. The majority of free software is available without cost, but "free" really refers to freedom not price. Specifically, the freedom to run, study, modify and distribute the software.

If you have all of these freedoms, then the program is free software. If not then the program is proprietary. Proprietary software is a dark alley. Only a select few can legally know the ins and outs of the program. If you can’t run the program for any purpose that you want, if you can’t study and modify the program so that it does (or doesn’t do) whatever you want, then who is your computer really taking orders from? Certainly not you.

In addition, the license attached to proprietary software often says that you’re forbidden to share copies with anyone else. If you can’t legally share copies with your friends, what what does that say if you’re forced to choose between obeying the license of the software or being a good friend and making a copy? “

"

October 4th, 1985 - The Free Software Foundation is founded by Richard Stallman in Massachusetts, an organization dedicated to promoting the creation of software without the restrictions of copyright and licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

Many of the tenants of the FSF extend beyond Stallman’s vision and have contributed to a great deal of projects which many users and institutions take advantage of and contribute towards.
