There are so many reasons to be excited about generative art, but at the core of everything is this fundamental value: generative art is truly working with the essence of what shapes our new digital worlds. Coding is the key. Our future lives will be built with it. The artistic exploration of code and how it can be re-imagined, re-examined, and re-purposed is critical if we wish to build a healthy, human experience in the non-physical landscapes to come. Generative art is one step in that direction, and one that feels more important to me every day.

This post takes a look at digital gardening and looks at some of the elements of IndieWeb & blogging I am interested in.
Stars, favorites, reading lists,bookmarks, notes, playlists, and the whole mess of podcasts, is exhausting to keep track of, let alone keep alive and healthy.
I think I want to return to this old-fashioned concept of blogging for Macdrifter. I want to worry less about “reviewing” things and more about leaving tasty breadcrumbs.
There is a nice list of blogs and blog types at the end too. Really glad to see this feed come alive again.

A bargain. And it’s not too shabby, even if I say so myself. https://twitter.com/itpressuk/status/1402576707048120322
I read this before covid stopped us using the library, but I found this changed a lot about how I think about reading. I am going to re-read over summer.
I was messing about with the Flickr API downloading my photos flickr thinks are pink.
