32.1k stars for a GitHub repository that's essentially a collection of falsehoods and personal opinions 😒

If you're starting out with #golang, just be aware that a certain repo claims to represent golang "standards", when it really does quite the opposite.

I won't even post the link here, this one has wasted enough people's time.

hi fediverse, my #introduction : I'm gama reis and I #livecode dancefloor-oriented music.

in 2020 a happy alignment of the stars got me into @yaxu 's Tidal Club course while I was looking for a pandemic hobby, and i found in #tidalcycles a beautiful method to begin realising a couple decades' worth of musical ideas. And the Tidal/algorave community is a singularly incredible place

after 2 years practicing and participating in a few online events, i feel like i'm just getting started, and hope this spot can help me discipline sharing what i'm making (i was never good at it) and breathe from what like-minded peers are doing :unwanted_duck:

Ah, toothing pains on new platforms.
So lets try this again, an #introduction after 2 years of lurking.

I am an #artist in the overlap between #music, #gamedev, #glitchart and #coding.

I love #procedural and #generative art.

At the moment my main focus is #ludomusicology, aka sound in games, #livecoding, my tool of choice is #csound.

When I am not in a digital mood, I have an eclectic mix of analog noise boxes.

My early fascination with #mathematics and #physics is still going strong.

here's a little #Pebble video sampling the double-FM synth sounds -- this time I've added some enveloping to the FM modules as well, to give them a little more shape

#music #livecoding

#Pebble 1.1 is officially out!

I'm super excited about the new features & changes, but I spent all night writing up the patch notes, so I'll have to talk more about it tomorrow!

For now:

Drone Day this year is Saturday, May 28. Make some drone music for the world.

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

It takes a while to really feel the difference here compared to other social media, but its great.

You only get notifications when another human does something.

People are less prone to flame wars, and the fediverse structure actually discourages and limits it.

Its actively anti-advertisement/anti-influencer.

... There are still so many cats, cats everywhere, how does a much smaller network still have this many cats all over the place?!

What a beautiful journey this was @abundance. Such great execution and poignancy that made me remember that special feeling of browsing into the unknown ❤️

@flavigula I have been listening to this beautiful album of yours all day. Such lovely atmosphere that reminds me of Paul de Jong.
