  • Very much on my mind. MT @ioflow: idea for @djunto #0101: something in or inspired by binary. ->
  • Time-Life Books #computers #digitalnostalgia ->
  • Pretty nifty getting Crystal Method to score Almost Human. ->

  • I've been on Android since the G1. I dig it. But this whole "the new OS is here but isn't here" thing has gotta get sorted. #kitkat #4point4 ->
  • The Powerball ads with a red ball among many white balls? Maybe it's the maudlin "California Dreamin'" but I always think: cancer cell. ->
  • Finally really blocking out a little time to learn Pd. ->
  • Assumed something might be buggy, maybe even crash regularly, in OS X Mavericks. Never thought it'd be, of all things, Preview. ->
  • Thought Ealy's Almost Human character is a DRM (not DRN) and the whole thing a metaphor for intersection of code and law. Well, not really. ->
  • Lengthy conversation with our 3-year-old, who wants to sing "The Antelope Song." Eventually it becomes clear this is "Home on the Range." ->
  • Excited about the new Arnold Lobel exhibit at @Jewseum. I remain convinced that Frog is John Cage and Toad is Morton Feldman. ->

  • Today in sound class, one of my favorite lectures: music and social networks; making stuff together separately; "ambient participation." ->
  • The brief Boing Boing link/article about Madrigal's solid piece on Eggers' novel has more comments than the original post. Fascinating. ->
  • (San Francisco side note.) Whoever thought up the Muni 5L, I'd like to buy you a beer. ->
  • I love playing Kanye West and King Crimson in klass. ->
  • This week's Disquiet Junto project is the 99th weekly. It will be about video games. ->
  • Great blog entry by @CityLightsBooks on the Oulipo events of a week or so back, including the Junto workshop: ->
  • Music from airports: A sonic portrait by Monolake. ->
  • I'll be listening to this new Damu the Fudgemunk instrumental hip-hop set on @REDEFrecords all day: ->
  • Is "Mechanical Turk" problematic the way "welsh" and "gypped" are? Or does it get a pass because it's about an instance not an ethnicity? ->
