State of the Art

Published on


It's been a long while since I've put words in this space. Over a year, really. I've been less busy than I'd like. The creative energy has been low for quite a long while now, and I've been struggling to get it back.

I left the SF Bay Area knowing that leaving wouldn't solve everything, and for a while things have felt better, but the creative energy is still gone. I've tried to be active on a couple of spaces in the Fediverse, namely cybre.space and to a much lesser extent Glitch Social, and now that ActivityPub is decently along and has a footing, I'll probably want to try to weld Bridgy Fed in to Arcology and use this space some more with direct posting to the Fediverse and comment injection.

Meanwhile, at the top of this post there's some glitch art I've made in the last year. I've also been dabbling in music making with the Teenage Engineering OP-1 and spending a lot of time thinking about my place in the world, but that's a post for another day. I've also spent some time making a Google Pixelbook work as my daily driver and that's been wild.1

Now how many hours will it take for me to figure out how to get Arcology to publish again……
