Computer latency: 1977-2017
'If we look at overall results, the fastest machines are ancient. Newer machines are all over the place. Fancy gaming rigs with unusually high refresh-rate displays are almost competitive with machines from the late 70s and early 80s, but “normal” modern computers can’t compete with thirty to forty year old machines.' via

Moon Signs – Amaranth Borsuk
"Adapting the doublet we created for our sound installation at King Street Station, we designed a volvelle whose apertures reveal a word ladder composed of 31 words. The gradually changing poem waxes and wanes along with the lunar phases, shown on the opposing side of the dial."

Unix is not an acceptable Unix | Affording Play
"The original designers of Unix viewed the “simplicity” of text streams as an advantage. Consequently, they declined to impose any structure on the data that was to pass between programs. This decision, intended to banish inessential complexity, instead managed only to push essential complexity further downstream. [...] Even the earliest version of Unix was ultimately only a particular, flawed implementation of the Unix philosophy. If we want to encourage more widespread acceptance of the philosophy, we should not try to defend the implementation by downplaying its flaws." (via

Amiri Baraka/Technology & Ethos
"A typewriter?–why shd it only make use of the tips of the fingers as contact points of flowing multi directional creativity. If I invented a word placing machine, an “expression-scriber,” if  you  will, then I would have a kind of instrument into which I could step & sit or sprawl or hang & use not only my fingers to make words express feelings but elbows, feet, head, behind, and all the sounds I wanted, screams, grunts, taps, itches, I’d have magnetically recorded, at the same time, & translated into word–or perhaps even the final xpressed thought/feeling wd not be merely word or sheet, but itself, the xpression, three dimensional–able to be touched, or tasted or felt, or entered, or heard or carried like a speaking singing constantly communicating charm. A typewriter is corny!!"

soundjuggling - DORTHE
"D.O.R.T.H.E. reuses words. She analyzes them, and use them for music creation because she believes that words, sentences and phonetics have many resemblances to music. Both one to one mappings like number of letters in a word translated to a pitch in music, but also emotional states like joy, distress, happiness, discomfort and fear."

I don't want to use hyperbole, but this is the most important thing to ever have happened to IF.

uh, seriously though---collecting this kind of data from playthrough transcripts is just a good idea. using that data to tune the game, and seeing the concrete results of those changes---even better.

(via engadget) keys on the rear of the device for a new kind of typing. not sure if this would ever catch on in the mainstream, but I would love to see it for a limited purpose device (portable IF player?). also wondering whether it could be adapted for one hand---is it possible to keep the device stable on the palm while having full motion in the fingers?

october 2010 by aparrish > Interactive Poetry Generation Systems: an Illustrated Overview
comment I couldn't add because it was apparently too "spammy":

I like to think of these as "interactive poetry generation systems":

A few others:

- Google Poetry Robot:
- Eater of Meaning:
- Alan Sondheim's Julu:

And, of course, Google Scribe is probably the most important (if inadvertent) interactive poetry generation system to recently arrive on the scene:

it's like gnoetry except it uses the entire web as its corpus... and fills in suggestions as you type, in real time.
