One of my bots (artbrowsing@twitter.com) recently surfaced this beautiful French book published in 1839 on the topic of color perception. "De la loi du contraste simultané des couleurs" by Michel Eugene Chevreul.

You can browse the whole thing at the Internet Archive:

Experimenting and getting experience with focusmate.com. Finished by fourth session (first one today) and so far so good, I've been focused for whole 50 minutes on what was the task I wanted to focus on.

Been thinking if the 'complete stranger' that is on the other side plays a big role? Would it work with someone you 'know' better? An acquaintance from fedi?

Would anyone from here want to experiment?

For all the creatives out there. This is something I've been involved with - for me as a musician it creates a community of practice, where normally the actual creative practice is a very lonely one. I need people. If you need people, just to notice while you work, and want to share things as you build/create/make them, then this is a place for you:

YapNet.org (it's not a social site, it's a creative sandbox)

"Since its emergence around a decade ago, athleisure has gone through a few aesthetic iterations. At first, it was black leggings and colorful tank tops – a spandex version of an early-aughts going-out uniform favored by women who might have, by the time of athleisure’s rise, shifted their daily social interactions to yoga and coffee dates."

Love the term 'Athleisure'. Not.

Struggling to #write this weekend. When I'm inspired and dashing down notes it comes easily, but returning to notes from a state of inertia and knocking them into shape is torture. I need a new #writing #process. Any #ideas? What are the best writing accounts to follow? Not into fanfic or fantasy. Mainly essays, nonfiction, philosophy, blogs. Ta!

Notifications have stopped, and previously were only working using mobile data, not WiFi for some reason.

Might be my Huawei Honor 9 Lite handset.

Morning folks o/

Could I poke the hive mind of Mastodon for some parenting advice?

At what age do you think it's acceptable for a child to have their ears pierced? My eldest is moving up to secondary school and wants hers done. I think she's too young yet but then I'm her dad; I would think that.
(Opinion) I'm against babies/younger children having it done but there has to be a cut off point somewhere.

Down to Woolwich, reading and making an end of the “Rival Ladys,” and find it a very pretty play. At Woolwich, it being now night, I find my wife and Mercer, and Mr. Batelier and Mary there, and a supper getting ready.

Hey, sometime after I finish my PhD...

...would anyone be interested in being in a Fediverse Virtual Choir to sing some of my work so I can put recordings online?

Eric Whitacre did this (not on the Fediverse) and it worked super well. I... definitely don't have his resources, but I can probably film a conducting track that people can sing to.

we did a bit more on that remix track, and I added an extra bit of vocal:
