I am the type of person that loves starting a new project. I love
the excitement of initial problem solving and coming up with
ideas. I also have a pretty solid history of finishing things,
up to a certain point anyway. I tend to not love the maintenance
phase of things. Once a project becomes useable, or presentable
(as the case may be), I tend to just start enjoying it and start
looking toward the next project. Today was the day that things
started to feel stable with Burrow & colorfield.space (and
its various pieces of software). I like using both of them. When
I encounter a bug, I fix it... but the pace of development is
definitely slowing. As such, I spent the day with a fun little
side project: I realized I had never coded a version of Conway's
Game of Life. So I coded one. It was fun! Once I clean up the
code, I will likely put it up on the colorfield.space ssh shell.
I have been thinking about trying to put together a zine for some
time. Something about programming, alternatives to the modern
web, digital communities, ma ybe some... not politics exactly...
but something around socioeconomics/culture, philosophy, art, etc
I would place the inspiration somewhere between 90s zine culture
and 2600/Phrack/Blacklisted411, with a larger focus on culture &
decentralization/small digital communities. I may start putting
out some feelers re: writers. If anyone reading this would be
interested in contributing or getting involved, reach out.
