Ambient Performances - YouTube
This "Ambient Performances" set is an ongoing playlist-in-progress of live performance videos on YouTube of ambient music by a wide variety of musicians using a wide variety of equipment. There are two rules for it: Rule #1: I'm only including recordings I'd listen to without video. Rule #2: I'm only including recordings where the video gives some meaningful sense of a correlation between what the musician is doing and what the listener is hearing. Note: The list appears in reverse-chronological order, which means that the video listed as #1 is the most recent. When a new video is added, the current #1 becomes #2.

Bjork - Modern Minimalists pt 1 - YouTube
"Modern Minimalists with Björk, 1998

In spring 1998, Björk filmed a Renegade/Dazed TV production for Channel 4, aired later that year. In her segment, called Modern Minimalists With Björk, she interviewed Estonian “holy minimalist” composer Arvo Pärt, along with Homogenic’s glass harmonica player Alasdair Malloy – who opens the documentary – and Finnish electronic experimentalist Mika Vainio, in Barcelona. “What seems to me has happened very much this century,” she says, “especially the later half, is that people have moved away from plots, structures and moved to its complete opposite which is textures. Basically a place to live in or environment or a stillness. It seems to be in this speedy times, the most bravest thing you can do is to be still.” This thinking would lead her away from Homogenic’s grandeur into the smaller, quieter sounds of Vespertine."

I made a 2001-era emoji font! That you can use! – Monica Dinculescu
If you want to use it, you can download the font here, and use it as a font-face:

@font-face {
font-family: og-emoji;
src: url(/fonts/og-dcm-emoji.ttf);
.og {
font-family: og-emoji, sans-serif;
<span class='og'>💥</span>

If you’re going to use it, maybe give me some credit, because I spent an unhealthy amount of time on it. Also, if you’re DoCoMo, please don’t sue me. Emojineering comes only from the ❤.

Frog To Phone: Instant Emoji Feedback for the Real Web · daily
When I was fixing referrer logs to be fun again I had low expectations – feedback via links is sort of a dying art. Who has time to read web sites and link to them? Seems hard.

The genius of social media style “one click to send feedback” buttons is that it not only lowers the friction of sending feedback, but through smartphone push notifications makes that feedback instantaneous.

The web doesn’t really work that way by default, but I decided I could fake it.

The end result are the little frog, fire and other unicode emoji guys at the bottom of this post. Go ahead and tap/click the one below if you’re impatient – my phone and watch will light up. With a frog.

Follow the Asus T100 several "guides/outlines" for similar systems.

The 32bit Atom SoCs + 32bit UEFI was another good idea (Clover..)
