Fuck Off!

To hell with algorithms.
I don't want algorithms.
They are anti-stories.
I want imagination
Rooted in fact.
That's the story I need.
And you.
And you?



Stories are very small
And one-dimensional
And not complex
One view
Instead of many
Do not give me a tale
Give me a world

My 2D stories
come from a life
lived in multi-dimensions.

All the corners,
all the nasty corners
come out in the stories.

This fake digital representation
you call 3D
how can that measure up?

Some of the things from me
Will be stories told in 3D .
Early in their development
I use digital code to represent
What later they will really be.


I nurse a soda through the day as I work. I've finally made a truly practical #3DPrinting to keep the can in reach and safe from falling off the arm of my sofa.


@Algot @Downes @tellio
Algot, you may not realise but your adventures in have been inspirational to me. I'm currently working on a training package for operators for a serious (advancedmanufacturing.cdu.edu.) and our occasional convo here has helped.

@wentale @Downes @tellio

That printer sounds awesome.

Have you gotten to actually use it while developing the training package?

*rubbing my hands together, imagining one of these in my workspace*

@Algot @Downes @tellio Unfortunately not! It is based on a different campus to myself (1,200km North)....so hoping to get to see it sometime this year. I'll post a selfie at that time!
