And look out, the machinations are at work to oblivate it into perhaps something new? A hallmark of DS106 always was not just spitting out things created (“just type a prompt in a […]

    The Joy of Web Improbability: The Buggles on/in front of #DS106 TV

    Keep the internet weird and un-expected, not managed by machine languages and corporatized algorithms, but by the small human acts of sharing. Ok?

    Third Month of Double Dailies

    Not that anyone is keeping score… well I am!

I have no real research, no data to back my hypothesis, but I will make up something that applying Curly’s Law to doing something small, new, micro challenging on a regular basis […]

    What Can You Do About Digital Surveillance? At least make [#ds106] art

    I don’t need to spend paragraphs explaining the state of digital surveillance most of us have become resigned to here in 2020. I turn that over to the twitter stream of Chris Gilliard (where you do get the occasional reprieve of a pupdate). A thing that gives me some small solace is making digital art, […]

    Making Sense of Blog Post Content Data? My Own Spanner Found in the Bottom of the Toolbox

    For the obviously obvious statement, WordPress is built on a database. The question is, besides data like visitor counts, what can you infer from the data in the posts and metadata itself? The question was swirling in preparation for a research interview I did today with David Porter and Valerie Lopes for the Ontario Extend […]
