Was supposed to be a gif, but couldn’t get it as a smooth gif so you’ll have to visit the applet instead.

Visual 8-bit Binary to Decimal Converter - OpenProcessing
Toggle the lights by clicking them or using keys 1-8 to create an 8-bit binary display, which is then displayed as binary and decimal number.
I started learning processing the other day and just finished making an interactive sketch that can run on a web page. I’m pretty happy with this, even if it is visually very basic.

"In the way that skepticism is sometimes applied to issues of public concern, there is a tendency to belittle, to condescend, to ignore the fact that, deluded or not, supporters of superstition and pseudoscience are human beings with feelings, who, like the skeptics, are trying to figure out how the world works and what our role in it might be. Their motives are in many cases consonant with science. If their culture has not given them all the tools they need to pursue this great quest, let us temper our criticism with kindness. None of us comes fully equipped."

I did a painting for the first time in months, it felt good. Borrowed my brothers watercolour paints and some metallic ink. I’ve only used watercolour a couple of times as I’m usually an acrylic painter so I don’t have the full range of techniques at my disposal.
Though I am happy wit this, which is going to my Nan for her birthday.

Government is good.
Big Brother is watching you.
The State wants to take care of you.
north Korea scares me to death. the fact that a place like that still exists in modern day. those people are prisoners.
1984 is here and now
this is too 1984 to be real
why the fuck have i barely heard anything about this shit? Why aren’t more people outraged about this? and talking about this? this is fucking horrible! Something has to be done it’s fucking 2014 why the fuck is this even happening
i have family in North Korea that no one has seen since the war.
Why isn’t anyone telling us about this?
I’m a sophomore in high school. Who gives a shit about The Second Great Awakening? What about this? What about the Korean Reich that’s strangling it’s own people? Why hasn’t anyone at least pretended to care? Fuck Beyoncé, fuck whatever is coming soon to theaters. Why isn’t the suffering of human beings the first headline in the NY Times? Why hasn’t my history teacher taken a moment out of the 53 minutes in our class to inform us? Why?
There’s no oil there to steal, so the richer countries of the world couldn’t care less.
no one is talking about this because no one is supposed to know this information

I made it into a gif so now you can see where it is with a zoom!
This comes from the mandelbrot explorer which I made in Processing this morning, which allows you to change the centre point and zoom in and out with the mouse.

Just found this in the mandelbrot plot, though I had no idea what the coordinates are I’m afraid. It is pretty cool though.

I turned my mandelbrot plotter into a generic function plotter!
From top to bottom we have:
y = tan(x)
y = sin(x)
y = e^(-0.02x)*cos(2pix) the equation for damped oscillations
y = e^(-0.02x)*cos(2pix) [with additional processing for blocks near to the correct value of the curve]

If you think that the loss of Net Neutrality means just the slowing down of popular websites like Netflix, Etsy, eBay, Amazon, etc, you’re not thinking it through.
Think of how throttled access will be used to control the flow of breaking news and the alternate press. Think of…

I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.
Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.
Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening
STILL. Do not forget.
