16:07:36 From Frode Hegland : Hi Adam, long time no see
16:07:42 From Frode Hegland : At least we see your name now
16:12:54 From Frode Hegland : By Ben Dover?
16:13:31 From Peter Wasilko : The middle of the night one I missed.
16:13:45 From Frode Hegland : I’ll take a look
16:14:22 From Adam Wern : Been a scout leader on Mondays for the past year, but now the season is over!
16:18:20 From Frode Hegland :
16:18:57 From Frode Hegland : Peter:
16:19:04 From Frode Hegland :
16:19:10 From Frode Hegland :
16:19:26 From Frode Hegland :
16:19:32 From Frode Hegland :
16:22:16 From Fabien :
16:23:24 From Fabien : related code
16:27:06 From Frode Hegland :
16:27:11 From Frode Hegland : And bottom of the page
16:30:08 From Frode Hegland :
16:30:57 From Peter Wasilko : I miss the 3 1/2 inch floppy storage design paradigm with boldly colored discs.
16:31:07 From Frode Hegland : Reacted to “I miss the 3 1/2 inc…” with 😃
16:31:17 From Peter Wasilko : What if we used that form factor with modern tech inside?
16:31:37 From Frode Hegland : Reacted to “What if we used that…” with 😃
16:34:58 From Fabien : for nodal started with pinching to split (then merge) and editor, wanting to stretch until it “broke”, splitting an editor in parts, then became the programming part but was initially for “just” text.
16:36:28 From Fabien : literal weight
16:38:16 From Fabien : Leon: that’s what I recommend for graph manipulation in JS
16:38:40 From Leon van Kammen : thanks!
16:39:44 From Peter Wasilko : Cytoscape is my library of choice too!
16:43:12 From Alan Laidlaw : btw @fabien: love this spacial scaffolding!
16:43:47 From Fabien : Reacted to “btw @fabien: love …” with 🫂
16:44:45 From Frode Hegland : You all agree with the notion of frozen + thaw! Save the original scroll then print a new one if you need one to continue a separate thing of! On paper or digitally. Moleskine’s magic Swedish paper as well. Who here has large printers? Maybe a printer which automatically adds date when printed, computer readable as well, and some how add a ‘filed’ date? Pages of books in this too… ‘a well scanned life’
16:44:51 From Fabien : tech from the Moleskin digital version is South Korean AFAIK
16:44:58 From Frode Hegland : No….
16:45:05 From Fabien : sorry
16:45:58 From Peter Wasilko : I hope no moles are harmed in their production!
16:46:09 From Frode Hegland : Ha…
16:46:09 From Fabien : examples
16:46:35 From Fabien :
16:47:48 From Alan Laidlaw : terrifying: that last link shows up as localhost:5173
16:55:19 From Frode Hegland : Overview from text
16:58:16 From Fabien : FWIW on syntax highlighting can rely on themes defined by users, e.g but as the name says, limited to syntax, not semantics
16:58:37 From Fabien : (unfortunately have to go in 2min but was again a pleasure to chat with you all)
16:58:51 From Frode Hegland : Yes, it was a good meeting Fabien
17:00:41 From Frode Hegland : Colours merge. red and blue to purple etc. blue and yellow to green and so on
17:02:24 From Peter Wasilko : I want a command line in VR!
17:02:36 From Leon van Kammen : @Alan @Frode with an ever-growing amount of content these better-tailored (colored) representations are perhaps inevitable
17:03:52 From Keith : VR Terminal would be quite something. 🙂
17:04:00 From Frode Hegland : Reacted to “VR Terminal would be…” with 👍
17:06:24 From Keith : VR experiences are very spatial, very much about volume and space. Long-form text reading isn’t, not in the alphabetic representation of information.
17:06:46 From Peter Wasilko : Reacted to “VR Terminal would be…” with ❤️
17:13:13 From Alan Laidlaw : great point. I call this: cooking vs climbing. if you are climbing a mountain, you can still cook, but you do not want to bring all the affordances of a kitchen with you
17:13:28 From Adam Wern : I did an VR experiment where you hold the text, and much richer reading for me!
17:13:29 From Frode Hegland : Nice Alan please speak it 🙂
17:13:41 From Frode Hegland : I was gonna mention Adam 😉
17:14:09 From Adam Wern : Hold as in move around with the hand
17:15:38 From Alan Laidlaw : like Humane’s demo
17:18:20 From Keith : Interesting point about micro-movements. When they’re your micro-movements they’re fine (possibly because you’ll have a subconscious ‘motor-understanding’ of the movements) – when they’re someone else’s they’re not.
17:24:22 From Alan Laidlaw : i have to go in a moment
17:24:39 From Alan Laidlaw : projector tech is very exciting for me
17:24:48 From Frode Hegland : Replying to “projector tech is ve…”

17:28:00 From Frode Hegland : 1 min, sorry
17:33:00 From Leon van Kammen : book: new executive brain
17:37:58 From Adam Wern : And before it has been VERY expensive to do 3D text (in physical space)
17:38:28 From Adam Wern : We reserve it for signs, graves, art installations etc
17:48:52 From Frode Hegland : What would you like to work in, in a year if headset is nice enough. I would like open and connected ecosystem, connected to the world.
17:49:09 From Leon van Kammen : @Keith is that a british shorthair cat?
17:49:40 From Keith : @Keith is that a british shorthair cat?
Yes, she’s a rescue so we’re still learning her quirks. 🙂
17:50:13 From Leon van Kammen : hehe 🙂
17:50:29 From Frode Hegland : And books anywhere in the room…
17:51:32 From Frode Hegland : So it’s important to bring the physical room into VR/AR as much and richly as possible
17:51:53 From Frode Hegland : Vernor Vinge’s layers
17:52:21 From Keith : A screen itself is physical but what it displays isn’t.
17:54:54 From Adam Wern : Imagine your roof is a constellation of all your media as small stars, lighting up discreetly on the topics, people, etc you currently meet.
17:55:06 From Frode Hegland : Reacted to “Imagine your roof is…” with ❤️
17:55:10 From Adam Wern : Reacted to “Imagine your roof is…” with ❤️
17:55:10 From Adam Wern : Removed a ❤️ reaction from “Imagine your roof is…”
17:56:20 From Keith : Reacted to “Imagine your roof is…” with ❤️
17:56:29 From Alan Laidlaw : agreed Keith. fear of hifi.
17:57:39 From Alan Laidlaw : Egan on teaching and imagination. imagination is not well understood, so it doesn’t get studied. then beyond measurement, then beyond (less than, outside of ) value.
17:58:37 From Adam Wern : Now off to watch party in XR!
