Ok, I now have permission to talk about this project in full and in public. I'm working with Alan Kay to build six replicas* of a Xerox PARC Alto display for use in a museum exhibit**. Visitors will see a real Alto and then walk over to one of the replicas to futz with Smalltalk '78***.
Here's a nice writeup of a different project that rejuvenated an actual Alto.
Our solar projection is drifting slightly over the course of the day.
My ☀️ calculations must be slightly off.
This weekend we celebrate the work of 10 graduating #XPUB students with an exhibition, presentation, workshops and (of course) a party! Join us for WALKIE TALKIE in Worm, Rotterdam on Friday (18:00-2:00) and Saturday (12:00-17:00).
More information about WALKIE TALKIE can be found on the website of Worm: https://worm.org/production/xpub-pzi-graduation-show/

Since we launched our latest release, we need you!!
We have included some cool features that need to be translate into all the languages possible, can you help us?
MarkovJunior is a probabilistic programming language where programs are combinations of rewrite rules and inference is performed via constraint propagation.
We have a mailing list if you want to sign up for semi-monthly updates about jungle stuff and other opportunities, grants, events, and things that come our way!
Penpot 1.13 Beta release new feature!!
🌀Multiple fills and strokes
Now you can add multiple color fills and strokes to a single element, including shapes and texts. This opens endless graphic possibilities such as combining gradients and blending modes in the same element to create sophisticated visual effects.
Get started, it´s free!! https://penpot.app
Since we're all excited about the image of Sagittarius A*, here's a different view of the central regions of our galaxy.
In January the MeerKAT telescope in South Africa released a stunning radio dataset. In the image below I colorised it using what we call spectral index, which tells us what causes this radio emission, like electrons accelerated by magnetic fields.
Sgr A* would be an tiny spec at the center of this image.
