seriously though please consider an alternate 1992 in which Creative did not (perhaps through corporate malfeasance) beat the Adlib Gold to market, and this beast ended up being the primary sound card that Doom's soundtrack targeted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGJ5zqjtgHY&list=PLDDC5889DDFC3FF3B&index=10
The bodega in my office building lobby got replaced with a fancy coffee shop a couple years ago. The kind that only takes credit and wants to email you a recipt "cause we all need to think about the environment."
Then that got replaced with a fancier convenience store you couldn't honestly call a bodega.
Today it's a teal and pine veneered CBD shop, what the ACKtual yuppie heck.
I have a personal website where I post art and blog. A while back I changed it to generate static pages on build rather than serve live from a database; I consider this a win for simplicity.
But now I want to play around with webmentions and other decentralized social stuff, and the idea of having to bring back a persistence layer is making me shudder.
I wonder how folks with (mostly) static sites balance this.
Oh no, it's an #intro post. I'm Jess.
I draw. I make websites. I make interactive art installations. One of them is free software that you can run if you have a Kinect or similar.
Sometimes people like the stories I tell about tech. I'm sure they'd tell me if they didn't... I think that makes me a Noted Tech Speaker in NYC.
Programmer, art queer, Noted Tech Speaker (2 whole talks!), 🧀 cheese ally.
