Excited to announce I’m launching my new blog, “CD-ROM Journal”! I’m going to be writing about weird, interesting games and multimedia art. I’ve got a couple of posts I’m really proud of to launch with! I hope you enjoy and find it interesting.
First up is a post on Daizaburo Harada’s “AL: Artificial Life (Insects)”, a wildly experimental cross-media project covering a CG art book, a novel, and a game. I go deep into its inspirations and every part of the project.
This is wonderful: someone's put a lot of effort into getting System 7 and Mac OS 8 running in the browser, with data persistence and being able to drag and drop stuff from the host system into it.

Such a wonderful blog post on how, through the efforts to replace the mainframe, we all just ended up re-inventing the mainframe.
What I find quaint is that post-Brexit Britain is apparently still afraid us unwashed masses might want to go there and sully the furniture. Could do with never entering that modern-day Dickensian Tory shithole if we didn’t have family there.

this is why programming is, in a way, so accessible: you can basically fail as much as you want for free
i wonder if an extended global chip shortage could enable any of these things
- profitable electronics refurbishing and recycling industry
- less e-waste
- right-to-repair type laws forcing chip manufacturers to open source firmware and specs for chips they have end-of-lifed
- advances in home chip fabrication
- cars with tactile, mechanical controls, less whizzy techy bullshit
- elon musk loses money
- cryptocurrency mining becomes unprofitable
- more interest & development in uxn and similar
Today’s “A Step Farther Out” was far from my most informative, entertaining, or edifying show ever.
