Exactly 160 years ago this week, on 17th May 1861, Thomas Sutton took the world's first permanent colour photograph, which I have spruced-up for you. It's a Scottish tartan rosette, taken using 3-colour plates (see other images)

Ad blocker: visually hides ads. Tracker scripts by ad companies still track you.
Tracker blocker (e.g., https://better.fyi): actually blocks trackers. Blocks ads as a side-effect as 99% of ads are trackers.
The former is like closing your eyes to make the wolf disappear.
Photography enthusiasts have something to look forward to this month:
SonoBus is an open source cross-platform application for streaming high-quality, low-latency peer-to-peer audio between devices over the internet or a local network
Connects multiple users together to send and receive audio among all in a group, with fine-grained control over latency, quality and overall mix. Includes optional input compression, noise gate, and EQ effects, along with a master reverb. All settings are dynamic, network statistics are clearly visible.
So this could be for a band or music practice, a meeting, etc without audio passing through any central server or reliant on any Internet service. Works as a standalone application on macOS, Windows, iOS, and GNU/Linux, and as an audio plugin (AU, VST, and AAX) on macOS and Windows. Use it on your desktop or in your DAW, or on your mobile device such as Android or iOS.

Good stuff and amazing effort to look effortlessly. I may not have thought about those scenes as long as I should have. 👍
