If you're going to watch (or have watched it already) Netflix's "The Social Dilemma" read this piece https://conversationalist.org/2020/03/05/the-prodigal-techbro/ by @mariafarrell It puts in words the nagging feeling this docu gave me. Via @aral (thanks).
Check https://banabila.bandcamp.com/album/to-yemen-with-love-2 It's a great compilation of electronic, ambient & 'world' (for lack of a better term) music curated by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michel_Banabila. Bonus: your purchase will support 2 organisations trying to make things less bad for people in Yemen. #musica
Great, Murphy's Law: pandemic and our @PhilipsNL television of 3yrs breaks down. Apparently not within warranty...I guess the next tv (or any applicance) will not be a Philips one. #FirstWorldProblems
Interesting blend of #blackmetal, #noir #Jazz in White Ward. Recommended!
Update: The Spanish label, agreed this was not their work and I got my dispute solved. Hoorah!
Funny, or actually not 😞. I got a copyright claim on one of my tracks called "Let's Dance" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WObmxe8U56w made during #jamuary2020. By a Spanish(?) label representing 'Autumn Comets' for a piece of footage which according to #Prelinger Archive is in the #publicdomain. So I have opened a dispute. Apparently Google's automagical algorithm cannot read nor understand a video's description. This will be interesting. #copyright #creativecommons
Each time I use my #ansible books I have to change stuff because the syntax has changed. Once again I wonder about the benefits of Ansible for a self-employed geek like myself...
"Discovered" Nadia Struiwigh's work and really enjoying it.
Sounds perfectly match my mood now.

Only 2 days left for #jamuary2020 So far I've missed 2 days and produced a jam each day. In my case this includes a movie. Usually I had roughly 2 to 3hrs max for everything. So it's all quick 'n dirty :)
Today I was inspired by our more autumnal than winter weather.

It's getting harder to keep coming up with interesting jams for #jamuary2020 Tonight's one therefor was 'just' a re-edit of some old piece I made with #SunVox. Was fun though especially with searching for footage. I think the end result is not too shabby :)
Have a look at my experiments thus far containing music I made using hardware such as Korg Volca's and lots of Creative Commons / Public Domain videos from Openbeelden.nl
Nowadays applications ask for certain permissions: Firefox ask permission to use notifications or the camera, an Android app wants read permission for your address book etc. What I find annoying is there is never an explanation on WHY they need this permission.
How on earth are less technical inclined people able to make an informed decision without this explanation? As a developer I can make an educated guess, but without my background, I'd have no clue at all. #UX #UI #interaction #design
