Matt Keeter's paper on Massively Parallel Rendering of
Complex Closed-Form Implicit Surfaces is a very interesting read with an extremely satisfying implementation. It takes a simple concept of surfaces defined by `f(x, y, z) = 0` and invents a novel rendering technique for them, on the GPU. https://www.mattkeeter.com/research/mpr/

Here's a preview of what I've been working on over the past several months. Still nowhere near finished, but we're getting there. It is (going to be) a real-time graph-based video compositor for broadcasting and creative coding. What you can see in the preview is the UI rendering of basic nodes and graph validation errors highlighted in red, with some debug information below.
Onion service URLS are not easy for humans to remember, which makes it hard for users to discover or return to an onion site. In this release, we're bringing you a proof-of-concept for human-memorable names for SecureDrop

ColdFusion made a great video explaining the roots of the opioid epidemic in the US.
Does anyone know of a good alternative to #Maple for creating approximations of functions? Would be nice if it was a complete toolkit so I wouldn't have to implement the approximation algorithms myself. Maybe something in python, or something that doesn't feel like a huge proprietary binary blob like Maple does?
Ive just published my next blog in the Slicing onion series. This one is about how Tor relates to vpns and other tech. And its called: Onion recipes; VPN not required.
I hope you all enjoy it, and be sure to give feedback if you have any :)
We've got big news.
After months of work, Tor Browser is now stable on Android.
