Since friday, I’ve been spending all my free time learning as mush about Processing as I possible can. I made this video to prove to myself it was possible to integrate Slipmat with Processing. I guess this means I’m fully committed to learning the black arts of generative audio/visuals.
Added a new feature to thumbuki that was highly recommended by some of my friends at blip.tv. It’s called Twitter. I guess the best way to describe it is “microblogging.” One writes a very brief description, no more that 140 characters, of what they are doing at any given moment. The best part is that people can twitter directly from their cell phones. So while I may not be the most reliable person at updating a blog, at least I have a way to keep some information up-to-date.
Last.fm is a service that records what you listen to, and then presents you with an array of interesting things based upon your tastes — artists you might like, users with similar taste, personalised radio streams, charts, and much more.
Are you a playlist exhibitionist? Then “show us your tracks!” Last.fm is a prime example of the social voyeurism we experience daily in the age of the internet.
