I guess it's time-

I'm an audio engineer, multimedia developer, and occasional indie game dev- Previously employed by several research institutions in the field of accessible media / accessible research, currently looking for remote / semi-remote work for my incredibly niche skillset.

I'm in to Python, Rust, and Unity/C#, but I've got eyes on Elixir in the future.

I love hackathons, all things procedural, and anything with wheels.

I'm an absolute New Englander, but I've lived in Washington, California, China, and Spain. Currently based in Honolulu.

Here's what I've been making in between the twin existential ennuis of freelance work and trying to find a stable job:

In other news, still trying to wrap my brain around Haskell. Maybe trying to learn it by way of a class about Category Theory isn't the most ideal vector

Looks like I'm going to JSConf after all

living with your parents isn't weird or shameful. people all over the world have done it for millennia. the nuclear family is fuckin weird as hell and it only took a couple of decades of that experiment for it to become clear that it's unsustainable. we need to reorganize our minds and our society. people living with their parents is a new norm for many, and we should start acting like it's permanent

I don't want cops to do their jobs better for the same reason I don't want the US to fight wars better or smarter. For the same reason I don't root for presidents to succeed. This is liberal shit. This illusion that we can have a kinder, gentler US. Like we can still deport people, but ICE won't be so mean about it. We'll still bomb people, but the president will wring his hands about it. We can still have homelessness, but cops will say please before running folks around town.

Home among the trees. Reread Mona Lisa Overdrive on the plane. It feels like A Moon Shaped Pool in the sense that they're both the last drawn out breath of an idea, an excuse to really put it all to bed before moving on to something new.

Every time I work with color look-up tables, the resulting code feels a little bit dirty :catGasp:

Things I learned from spending the afternoon trying out GRE math questions:

1: I'm great at reading charts and analyzing the data

2: I have forgotten basic algebra

3: I know nothing about triangles.

Anyone on h.t know much about neural networks / GANs / procedural dialogue? I'm doing a bit of research in the preliminary stage of trying to create a bunch of RPG NPC-esque three-liners and I'm at a bit of a loss as to where to start.

I've got a procgen city, whose vibrant and infinite streets pulse with cute little procgen NPCs, but none of them have anything to say!

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
