I call it a new season because during the fall/winter/early spring, since the quietness of the outside makes it a perfect time for multimedia creation.Now that I am back from my yoga retreat for the summer I’ll be catching up with all the project that keep going forward! I took 2 month of time this summer at Yasodhara ashram where I also work, so I didn’t have much time to work on my project, or even to blog 😉
I started a new site to host my projects at open3.cc (site still a mess in progress) where I will be mostly working on few java project and some 3d Os system (a project that I had in mind for the last 10 years 😉 and hopefully starting a computer hypnosis open source project. This is hosted at sdf.lonestar.org which is a independently hosted server, from their main page:
“The Super Dimension Fortress is a networked community of free software
authors, teachers, librarians, students, researchers, hobbyists,
computer enthusiasts, the aural and visually impaired. It is operated
as a recognized non-profit 501(c)(7) and is supported by its members.”
I have started to be a lot more conscious about the host I used and the software I use and support for the last year or so. I used to be partisan of Mac and apple product, but in the last year, when I saw how apple treated the open source industry by rejecting any open source software from its iphone apps, or iPad apps, I totally jump of the boat. Since I moved to pure:dyne I also discover a new world of computer art and floss. You can read more about it here in this open source book called floss art!
I also got some new gear – a kp3 and a micro modular ! So expect new crazy sound in the comings months! I started a double certificate in Graphic design at Session.edu and IT at Thompson River University.Just to make sure that I am busy enough during the winter! Just finishing a Java course which will help me a lot in any sort of project as well as processing projects.
Few more Gagdet on the Arduino side of the world too, I’ll be experimenting with a midi shield and also a video game shield which seems a lot of fun! So keep posted for more hacking and making, yoga and games !
