Gibberish Is Now Available on TestFlight - Gibberish and Stuff

Gibberish is a blogging app that looks and feels like a messaging app. It’s a bit weird, but that’s the point. This UI tricks my brain into writing mode, just like when I write long messages to my friends. Here’s what it looks like:

So true! The way I describe my day to the diary and to the friends is so different! It's those little bubbles that do something. I want this for Android.


2024-03-02 Oddµ themes

Alex got inspired by chat bubbles and considered adding them to Oddμ. Mentions something called Gibberish, which I will bookmark next

Chat bubbles are cool.

I told him he would need a special syntax for that and he got scared. He also liked a quote of mine: “it’s impossible to keep a publishing system pure Markdown”.

Center a Div

Back in the day, centering an element was one of the trickiest things in CSS. As the language has evolved, we’ve been given lots of new tools we can use… But how do we pick the best option? When do we use Flexbox, or CSS Grid, or something else? Let's dig into it.

Privatizing our digital identities

Trying to make the case for permanent irrevocable digital identities, which unfortunately today, by de-facto, are email addresses.


We need more of Richard Stallman, not less

I’ve spent the last 6 years teaching Free Software and Open Source at École Polytechnique de Louvain, being forced to investigate the subject and the history more than I anticipated in order to answer students’ questions. I’ve read many historical books on the subject, including RMS’s biography and many older writings.

And something struck me.

RMS was right since the very beginning. Every warning, every prophecy realised. And, worst of all, he had the solution since the start. The problem is not RMS or FSF. The problem is us. The problem is that we didn’t listen.

Stract is an open source search engine where the user has the ability to see exactly what is going on and customize almost everything about their search results. It's a search engine made for hackers and tinkerers just like ourselves. No more searches where some of the terms in the query arent used, and the engine tries to guess what you really meant. You get what you search for.

Sage advice for a calmer, more fulfilling digital life |

Datagubbe giving good advice in a bullet list. My favorite items are:

  • Disable notfications. I'd recommend to at least turn their sound off.

  • Use smaller software, use less applications.

  • Avoid social media. I'm building one haha.

  • Delete unused accounts.

  • Thank FOSS maintainers. That includes me.

  • Disable blinking cursor.

My least favorite is his recommendation to use laptops less. I myself should use it more, so I don't use the phone. And I don't have a desktop or a place for it.

What might degrowth computing look like?

About · Minimal Computing

We use “minimal computing” to refer to computing done under some set of significant constraints of hardware, software, education, network capacity, power, or other factors. Minimal computing includes both the maintenance, refurbishing, and use of machines to do DH work out of necessity along with the use of new streamlined computing hardware like the Raspberry Pi or the Arduino micro controller to do DH work by choice. This dichotomy of choice vs. necessity focuses attention on computing that is decidedly not high-performance. By operating at this intersection between choice and necessity minimal computing forces important concepts and practices within the DH community to the fore. In this way minimal computing is also an critical movement, akin to environmentalism, asking for balance between gains and costs in related areas that include social justice issues and de-manufacturing and reuse, not to mention re-thinking high-income assumptions about “e-waste” and what people do with it. Minimal computing thus relates to issues of aesthetics, culture, environment, global relationships of power and knowledge production, and other economic, infrastructural and material conditions.

iScape: A Collaborative Memory Palace for Digital Library Search Results

iScape, short for information landscape, was something interesting, lost in time because it was commerical. It offers users to manage their information in a 3D space, creating a digital palace.

The iScape world is a multi-modal, multi-user, collaborative 3-D virtual environment that is interconnected with standard web pages.

This paper presents iScape, a shared virtual desktop world dedicated to the collaborative exploration and management of information. Data mining and information visualization techniques are applied to extract and visualize semantic relationships in search results. A three-dimensional (3-D) online browser system is exploited to facilitate complex and sophisticated human-computer and human-human interaction.

I had similar ideas, twenty years later, but never actually started implementing them because it's damn hard.

Making Music Visible: Singing in Sign (Published 2021)

A good A.S.L. performance prioritizes dynamics, phrasing and flow. The parameters of sign language — hand shape, movement, location, palm orientation and facial expression — can be combined with elements of visual vernacular, a body of codified gestures, allowing a skilled A.S.L. speaker to engage in the kind of sound painting that composers use to enrich a text.
