I would like it if you watched something I made about how the web and I grew up together (only if you have 15 uninterrupted minutes to spare). ashleyblewer.com/throttled.htm

Tuesday, May 24 is Breadboard Night at Iffy Books! We’ll have plenty of breadboards, electronic components, and example circuits for y’all to play with. No curriculum or goal, just a chance to hang out and tinker. Stop by 5–8 PM.

This event is free! If you build a circuit you want to keep, you can pay for the parts and take it home.

@ashley i don’t love fb of course but given that this tool can be used with many different file formats you might get some mileage out of it: https://github.com/facebookarchive/codemod

I've been on a real writing spree this week, but writing isn't what I'm supposed to be doing! If only I could align my motivation with what I should be working on 🙃

first blog post of 2022 about how I'm accidentally in the middle of publishing an (illustrated) book WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY bits.ashleyblewer.com/blog/202

if you start listening to a podcast's backlog, do you start at the beginning or from the most recent, moving backwards?

I think I'm pretty good at time management but then I'll always bring three full books with me when I take a bath, thinking I'll somehow get through all of them in ~45 minutes

Glowing clothes from 1965, made with phosphorescent rosary beads, by Roberto Capucci.

"It has to do with Capucci's vision of the woman of the future: 'I saw her entering a dark nightclub like a lunar apparition.'" - LIFE, October 1965

"Art and TV are no longer two different things. They're equally tedious. The geometry of the one's devitalized the other (find out what kind of bad habits you have); TV's vibrating field's shaken our arts to pieces. No use to pick them up. Get with it: Someday artists will work with capacitors, resistors & semi-conductors as they work today with brushes, violins and junk"

John Cage, somewhen between 1963 and 1967

While I was away sleeping through a burnout storm, I left my digipres consulting job, started a new tech job, accidentally started writing (drawing?) a book, started building an aura-reader for two, started running and stopped running, started yoga and stopped yoga, switched from an iphone to a pixel, read books

OK I left "social media" for a while because I wasn't handling it well, but I'm happy to see another wave of users jump into the fedi today

I have done a very good job at only looking at a computer for work
