"In my version of computational thinking, I imagine an abstract machine with just the data types and operations that I want. If this machine existed, then I could write the program I want. But it doesn’t. Instead I have introduced a bunch of subproblems — the data types and operations — and I need to figure out how to implement them. I do this over and over until I’m working with a real machine or a real programming language. That’s the art of design."
it seems i lost the original video... but here i am, almost 5 years ago, operating the fetch and execute cycle of the beans computer

Tomorrow and Tuesday, the Computing within LIMITS workshop takes place.
I'm presenting a paper based on a discussion on Mastodon, started by @calcifer about terms related to sustainability and computing. I'm starting with a discussion of 3 historical terms from the 70s, rooted in anarchism, anti-technocratic critique and human-scale technologies, after which I dive into LIMITS related and grass roots terms, ideas and their associated practices.
Lurk instance is well represented, @rra is there, in paper session #3, with a discussion on degrowth and ICT, focusing on Low Tech Magazine's design choices and most importantly, why it sometimes goes offline:

So in June I'm trying my first thing-a-day-for-a-month project.
I'll be posting experiments made with #shoebot, a tool that i've been making with friends for the last 13 years, to draw with vector graphics in a simple drawing syntax.
First off, an output of some recent fun animating stroke dashes -- increasing their offset results in a pleasing smooth motion. This one is made out of 3 100-sided stars with varying dashed strokes.

In this edition of Read participants will be invited to pick a text, read in groups, breath and share their readings through an (un)automated persona. We discuss automations of the human body, that surpasses the idea that 'human' differs from the other animals in that it uses tools. They are;
