Can't get over how pretty the Waterman butterfly projection is! 🦋 Here's an interactive version with weather overlays: https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/surface/level/waterman
Diese Woche stellen die Softwareprojekte, die in der vergangenen Prototype Fund-Runde gefördert wurden, ihre Ergebnisse vor! 🥁 Im Eröffnungsstream nachher geben @bleeptrack und ich eine Live-Demo unseres Lernspiels "Oh My Git!" 😁
Los geht's hier um 18:30 UTC+1: https://demoweek.prototypefund.de/stream/
I also really enjoyed reading about which approaches people picked to generate or detect randomness! :)
They then mixed these with some real random strings, and in a second round, invited people to figure out which ones were "fake". You can find their detailed analysis of the results here: https://www.lesswrong.com/s/9TN3i7Q4PPdkx86hA/p/xxC3Ka7axphW8kJ9E
Spoiler: basically everyone was overconfident in their estimates!
"It's an interactive CD-ROM!" 😅
This terrible game which @firstname.lastname@example.org and I made last year is currently annoying a lot of folks on Hacker News! :D Check it out if you haven't seen it yet! Can you solve all three levels? https://youshallnotpass.glitch.me
I'm talking from a very privileged perspective, of course: I can return to a warm apartment, and the snow doesn't cause me more work in any way. Part of me feels horrible for enjoying this so much.
Favorite comments from the live chat:
"Need this game to explain git to my cat actually! He will like it, especially the moving graph and the blue persona!"
"this game looks very interesting; hope to use it to show my coworkers afraid of git, to get them comfortable!"
And third, when the next talk is about to start, the broadcast ends, and the internal room is automatically opened up to the public, which can join and mingle and discuss the topic some more. This is known as the "hallway track". :P
Second, after the talk, the broadcast is automatically switched over to a Jitsi with the speakers and a moderator in it, which go over the most popular questions. In this case, the Jitsi was a widget in an internal Matrix room for that specific talk.
Our talk "Building a Git learning game" is up next at #fosdem :)
