I feel like about 40% of the conflict in the world would have been saved if we invested more in sound-proofing

“Hearing-centric design in video chat apps”

Comparing Discord, Google Hangouts, Google Meet, Houseparty, Jitsi Meet, Skype, Zoom.

In general: cropping, chat overlays affected ASL. Captions meh. Screen sharing kills video feed.

Radio shows would be a lot more interesting if, instead of "top x most requested tracks", they'd have "random sampling of tracks that have been requested exactly once".

~~our penchant for breathing air~~

just :carlsagan: things

Being an optimist - buying tickets to a concert at the end of June.
Being a realist - forking out the extra cash for insurance on the tickets.

That said, I really really really want to see King Crimson in June.

I'm playing snow bird for the next few weeks. Here's some pictures from sunrise this morning.

Holy shit. Someone named Isabel Fall took "I sexually identify as an attack helicopter" as a writing prompt and produced one of the most fabulous cyberpunk, post-human, trans-human mindfucks I've read in a long time. This is extremely my shit

Mushi-shi is an old animé (2005), but it never fails to help me fall asleep. And it's pretty.

Rewatched Errol Morris' documentary "Fast, Cheap and Out of Control." I remember it as a hot mess about robots, naked mole rats, topiary and lion taming. And 20 years later I think I'm seeing more connections in between the four threads, but it's still a bit WTF. A glorious and rich WTF, and certainly worth the rewatch. I think the underlying thesis is feedback loops and how they are used. I'll need to watch it again.
