I've been writing music generatively and trying to visualise it.

@heydon I mean yeah the ’00s French electropop was p evil indeed 😌💃

I’ve made a lot of changes to mutable.gallery recently.

★ New and improved artworks
★ Finer grain control on algorithms (e.g. Inverted has an "evil" slider → mutable.gallery/inverted/)
★ Ability to order prints of the unique artworks you make (!!)
★ Fullscreen/slideshow mode

Let me know what you think.

So @laura spent all day yesterday adding a transcript, captions, and links to the sites we mentioned, etc., to the recording of our Small is Beautiful live stream with @heydon and @gabek (as she always does the day after the steam).

@heydon @flakoot @aral that's sadly not bad luck but reality. There are good instances though too like (mine and) tilvids.com/ and peertube.sunknudsen.com/ or share.tube/videos/local and more. I should curate a list of good instances.

Big thank you to @aral and @laura for having me on small-tech.org to chat. What a great conversation (as expected, love those two!!)

With a first glimpse at setting up and streaming to an Owncast server in under a minute using something we’re working on…

w00t! 🤓️🎉️ First successful setup of an Owncast server via Site.js (think: your own single-tenant Twitch) in ~30 seconds using Basil (which is nowhere near ready for use yet).

I plan on demonstrating this live on Thursday’s Small Is Beautiful on independent and ethical video and streaming with Small Tech with special guests @gabek (Owncast) and @heydon (Webbed Briefs, Inclusive Components)

Webbed Briefs by @heydon is my favourite thing on the Internet right now!

What does the large hadron collider have to do with misguided non-scientists tasing themseves in the nuts and squirrels teased by capitalist nuts in a social media forest? @heydon has the answer and it's black (and, at times, very very dark grey): briefs.video/videos/why-the-in

Hi everyone!

I think I'm going to spend more time here this year. Some things I released lately:

1. A video on progressive enhancement: briefs.video/videos/is-progres
2. A punk/blues/rockabilly/sludge record: deathgarage.bandcamp.com/album

Si vous rêvez du "container query" #CSS, @heydon a créé un "custom component" qui utilise l'API ResizeObserver pour en simuler un ! 🎉
J'ai aussi vu passer ce bac à sable de @sturobson@twitter.com aussi qui peut aider à comprendre le fonctionnement

⏰ LAUNCH DAY! ⏰ Okay, I have until May 1st to fund my book "Bye Bye, Billionaires". Please help in any way you can, even if it's just a share!

It's a book about capitalism, and what's wrong with capitalism, written in plain English.


Since the Domino's case, I have been having some absurd conversations about with some very silly people. I dramatised one such conversation: heydonworks.com/article/web-ac

Remember my Shaggy/Gojira mashup? Here's the batshit companion track. You won't have heard anything like this LOL.
