woahhh that site is cool asf
Really inspiring piece, knew very little of Korean philosophy and buddhism. Love how direct and practical thoughts around the individual mind and society are brought up.
A hard copy! Lucky you
It’s on Amazon: https://a.co/d/cfI6oxn
A good read, thanks for sharing! Kinda makes me want to use preact in my next project.
The “Simple made easy” talk they mention was very influential for me as well. I had just started working as a software developer around that time.
Got my copy a couple days ago - i think there needs to be a reading club…
started a reading club thread for Radical Friends !!! tap in
The latest Metalabel zine drop is a wicked read.
Highly recommend it with some insights from Kei Kreutler, Calum Bowden and more!
Had a bit of time of the holiday break to read this book : Technocrats of the imagination
Kei Kreutler mentioned it in her panel talk here.
If you’re interested in the origins of art-and-technology institutions like MIT, Bauhaus, and Black Mountain, this is a great read. It covers the intersection of collaborative experimentation between artists, engineers, and scientists in the American avant-garde art world of the 1960s.
Found this PDF online if you want to download it
link to order? thanks.
Really resonated with this interview by Jesper Kouthoodfd and his perspective on design.
What do you think comes next?
— Technology coming closer and closer to your body, removing that layer of disconnection that a phone or watch still possesses. Not just from a design perspective but also from the user interface one, technology will gradually disappear and the next operating system will be a combination of your eyesight and sound. When the pendulum moves back, the next step will be physical aberration where you want to touch everything again and that’s a bit of what I’m working on. Objects that you can touch, not like a keypad, something you can actually interact with. What’s so beautiful about creating products is that saying it in a poetic way, if you have that passion it naturally starts waves and those waves connect people. Then you don’t know where it’s going to end up, anything can happen, but if you don’t do anything, if you don’t write that text, if you don’t draw that picture or design that object, you can’t expect anything to happen. You need to start that chain reaction in life.
You’re the first person I know other than my close friend who has studied this material! Here’s something I picked up last night: The Fractal Technique - The Dark Meaning Research Institute
Will take a look that’s exciting!
there’s lots of good info relating to the nature of working groups & virtual teams in general here: Is Team Emotional Composition Essential for Virtual Team Members’ Well-Being? The Role of a Team Emotional Management Intervention
++ i’m in the bankless writing cohort and mentioned Neosound in my ramblings about innovation culture here: Innovation Culture in web3
and i just finished this piece reflecting my sentiments on how to help web3 execure its disappearing act here: How We Forget web3?
Mostly applied in science research but loved Nadia take here on early stage funding markets
"Early stage funding is a growing category in science philanthropy that benefits both basic and applied research, with funders sharing common interests such as reduced administrative burden, faster application cycles, and a higher tolerance for risk and failure. This has enabled the funding of more types of research, including proofs-of-concept and prototyping, groundwork for new research fields, interdisciplinary research, and “public infrastructure” for science. While progress is encouraging, grant sizes are still small and the long-term impact of these programs is still unknown.
This resonates with the ethos of Web 3.0 open-source research and provides a basis for the types of funding models available in this space.
