2021-11-30 21:31:27: I think the forth-lisp works if you think of it as a forth by default that pushes and pops s-expressions. #halfbakedideas
2021-11-30 17:22:11: building a Forth that sits alongside a LISP. If it's not an S-expression, it gets interpreted as a word. #halfbakedideas
2021-11-30 17:18:19: oh boy, I'm looking at (minilisp) and I have to say I'm inspired to try and hack on it somehow #halfbakedideas
2021-10-25 13:26:02: Prof. Jellywhipple's Ultra-Fantastic Computer Music Time Loop #halfbakedideas
2021-09-14 09:01:41: thinking about a building something in the realm of (gesture) that could work alongside (gest). The core principle of gest is line construction using breakpoints and an external clock. This new system, which I think I will call sloop, is more about making lines using slope. It would work by sending it messages: go from here, to there, in some amount of time, and use an external clock. If it reaches there, you have arrived. If a new message arrives before you get there, you are already here, now you have a new there. I think this approach would lend itself well to more open-ended kinds of gestures. #halfbakedideas
2021-07-19 10:49:51: play/pause/stop is not a great interaction, but it does count. thinking of interactive music as a gradient rather than a dichotomy (interactive vs non-interactive) seems like a healthier way to think about things. #halfbakedideas
2021-07-17 17:34:38: creating vocal tract shapes using the monome grid, and then morphing between them using something like (gest). #halfbakedideas
2021-07-17 17:33:27: musical experience that involve harvesting, farming, growth, and caretaking of virtual musical creatures with personality. creatures would socialize with eachother and their interactions would change the overall musical sounds implicitely. #halfbakedideas
2021-07-17 17:31:39: implicit music, or the idea that music naturally exudes from everything. composition is not the act of making music, but of starting with music and working backwards. #halfbakedideas
2021-07-09 20:57:57: my little travel pillow arrived today for my feet while sitting in the meditation bench. paired with my foam pad for my knees, I think I can begin trying to test this out for my future portable kneeling workspace. #updates #halfbakedideas
2021-07-05 15:03:58: conceptualizing the monome grid as a highly accurate low-density monochrome display #halfbakedideas
2021-06-26 11:03:04: on a monome 16x8 grid, you can get 10 consecutive 3x3 blocks in a 2x5 configuration. what's left is a narrow 1x vertical strip, and a 2x horizontal strip. interesting divisions for a glyph based interface with controls. #halfbakedideas
2021-06-24 09:52:46: low-res hard-edged SDFs in btprnt. mainly as a way to compose organic looking geometry. #halfbakedideas
2021-06-24 09:46:27: I want to somehow use my monome grid to build out coarse vocal tract shapes for a physical model like (voc) or tract. 16 diameters with 8 steps of resolution, or 32 diameters with 4 steps of resolution. #halfbakedideas
2021-03-09 16:15:43: using a forked version of ed to do live coding #halfbakedideas
2021-03-04 09:47:10: my tiny screen can comfortably display a text block of 45 lines with a maximum length of 79 characters. wonder what kind of information is possible to convey with that kind of information density... #halfbakedideas
2021-02-09 14:07:24: a decentralized community (zet). individual zet feeds could be managed using something like git/git submodules, then built locally into self-contained SQLite files. zet items would be referenced by their zet nickname and UUID. #halfbakedideas
2021-02-01 17:07:53: with (zet) and (zetdo), I find myself constantly needing to type out UUIDs. thing is, they aren't the easiest thing to type. might invent an intermediate typer-friendly intermediate UUID format that can then convert to the regular UUID format. #halfbaked
2021-01-28 18:01:19: a supplementary component to (zetdo) called something like "due", which schedules items in the TODO and dynamically creates schedules similar to org-agenda. #halfbaked
2021-01-27 19:47:19: SQL(ite) and zettelkastens as a medium for non-linear story telling. #halfbaked
2020-12-02 10:47:46: smoothstep is a stateless smoother function commonly used in computer graphics. could be interesting in the audio domain as well (parameter smoothing, phase warping/distortion synthesis, etc): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoothstep #links #halfbaked
2020-12-02 10:14:05: I had this notion yesterday of ignoring whitespace completely in (txtvm). this could allow for some ascii-art patterns in the output (similar to what some IOCC entries do). #halfbaked
2020-11-24 10:52:56: thinking of computer interfaces as being hypertypewriters #halfbakedideas
2020-11-20 10:26:02: tool-mind vs toy-mind #halfbakedideas
2020-11-17 15:33:22: tools encourage creation. toys encourage discovery. sometimes these overlap. #halfbakedideas
2020-11-16 19:41:25: plans for weewiki: a zettelkasten-like interface, a microblogging platform inspired by (twtxt), and some utilities for managing collections of SQLar archives. #updates #halfbakedideas
2020-11-04 15:07:42: I gotta put hatching patterns in (btprnt). I just gotta. #halfbakedideas
2020-11-04 11:05:47: the concept of literally typed languages. as in, languages designed to be satisfying to type. #halfbakedideas
2020-11-03 17:23:30: a crossfade loop delay line. #halfbakedideas
2020-11-02 10:15:51: I've recently been reading up on zettelkastens again, since it is very closely related to the ethos of a personal wiki system like (weewiki). The thing that interests me is the emergent patterns that come from linking things to things. Which is exactly the sort of solution I'm looking for (sample_curation). #halfbakedideas
