@neauoire The stagnation of their mobile browser in favor of enriching the iOS ecosystem will leave an afterimage on the archived mobile web, like a film negative made out of bullshit.
"Why do all these 'web sites' in the historic record invoke the demon 'Mobile Safari' and then prompt visitors to 'open the app' instead? My co-authors and I theorize an ancient struggle between factions vying for power: the 'web' faction whose artifacts survived, and the 'apple' faction whose artifacts did not."

What I'm listening to today: "Microtonal Tetris", mannfishh
Okay so this one… might be asking a lot of you… but. This is a rule-based composition based on a two-dimensional just-intonation scale and the tetronimoes from Tetris. Each chord is 4 frequencies related by Tetris-piece-shaped positions on a grid of ratios, and each chord "touches" the previous one on the grid. There's a full explanation on YouTube but if you think about how it works it might just distract you.
I had been feeling an itch for a new Zachtronics game, and as luck would have it a new one released today. Sadly, they say this is their last one 😭

What I'm listening to today: "Roland TR6S Arturia Microfreak 1 hour Techno Liveset Experiments #19 w/ strymon timeline, HOF, Ph90"
This is a one-hour live music set with a single synth and a single drum machine, that I literally did listen to today as programming focus music. It's effective techno, completely self-assured, that quickly hits a groove in one of those trance subgenres I never bothered learning the name of. I especially liked the first twenty minutes.

I spend a lot of time thinking about shapes, and I like to do math and use the computer.
