Scratch Pad: Live Coding, Andor, etc.

From the past week

I do this manually each Saturday, usually in the morning over coffee: collating most of the little comments I’ve made on social media during the preceding week. I tend to think of social media — Twitter especially, though I’m taking a break, and Facebook to a degree, and increasingly Mastodon — as my public scratch pad. It’s informative to revisit a week of thinking out loud in public. Also, knowing you’ll revisit what you say pulls in the reins a bit, in a good way.

▰ I’m now getting advertisements for “digital stethoscopes.”

▰ Anyone checking out I’m @disquiet over there, too.

▰ Oh this Andor marching band (season 1, episode 12) is so great. Star Wars second line.

▰ Far as I can tell, doesn’t do #hashtags, though I may be mistaken. If it does/did, my main ones (would) definitely include #ambient #FieldRecordings #SoundStudies #soundscapes #ExperimentalMusic.

▰ I keep an eye on my Wikipedia Watchlist for various key #SoundStudies terms. You can see as edits occur in real time. This correction popped up on Monday. I love the concept of “erroneous space” in the context of the World Soundscape Project.
