Isolation Microblog 1

Written by Ash on Filed in general Tags: personal brief micro me links

It’s official - I’ve got 7 days of isolation lined up due to a family member contracting COVID-19. I’ve decided I’m going to make a blog post every day of it. Since I’ve spent most of today trying to get my affairs in order given this sudden news, I don’t have much, but I do have a thought that’s been bugging me: I absolutely told someone recently “Oh, Axel F! I bet you it’s the Crazy Frog version” when the song was in fact Popcorn. Which is. Embarrassing.

Introductions

(So, this post is a little different. It’s highly personal and a bit of a vent; about part of my experience while doing something as “simple” as introductions. It’s a stream of conciousness and thus could be triggering. So, big content warning for transgender anxieties. If you’re trans, you’ll probably relate to this and it could bring up some upsetting memories. If you’re looking for a page that introduces myself, that’s About Me.)

Experiments in image corruption

I recently saw a post from Daniel Aleksandersen about bitrot in modern image formats, which included a method to quantify how different a corrupted image is from its original. Daniel used random bitflips, but this got me thinking about glitch art - what if we could generate every possible corrupted image and quantitatively state which ones are the best?

Some Interesting Links

One of the things I thought I might try to get myself blogging more (and to force me to actually appreciate things I like) is posting collections of links, things I found interesting or spent time on in the last [time period] - dare I say monthly? dangerous. This seems to be taking root as various YouTube folk start mailing lists, and of course some great newsletters (check out Cryptography Dispatches!) do the same. Without further ado, here are some interesting things I saw during the July-August-ish period for you to peruse.
