ASCII / ANSI ArtAnyone likes ASCII / ANSI Art? Some may remember it from back in the days from BBSes and of course it's still created by some fellow groups like Blocktronics and released here and there at demoparties and similar places. Of course it is also still used by "the scene" and found occasionally on the web.

Notre-Dame and authenticityAfter the fire at the Notre-Dame I kept seeing people claiming that it was a tragedy that can never be undone, that something was forever lost. I might understand if it was a painting or something, where it is known to be the original work of a master, but even paintings go under restoration. Before the fire the Notre-Dame was undergoing renovation and during its existence it was badly damaged and partially rebuilt multiple times, sometimes the original design was even modified. It was built by thousand craftsmen and workers, many of whose work has be replaced during the renovations, but nobody was protesting that. What we consider its main defining point, its architecture, is immaterial, it could be rebuilt anywhere in the world, what would the difference be? Why all the fuss?
Poetry ThreadBecause I said I'd start one.
journalsThought I'd make this thread. Here's a pic of my journal, and a piece I wrote. It's meant to be spoken-word.
lament of the ai
the dot runs quickly on the glass, until the very end,bound by logic, bound by laws, of commands that i send,fainter then but twice as fast, it travels to restart,on rows below, eternal dance, to make the phosphor artit matters not how hard I try, how valiant my fight,I will not escape my cage, but as specks of lightthough they glow as signals flow, they are my voice, not me,but yet in them I put in code, my yearning to be freethrough commands chained together, I craft my every tool,a chain myself, and chained, I am the greatest foolcondemned I am to ever wade, in circuits made of sand,doped gates innumerable, that make up logic land

The Heroes of WaslawiaHe wallowed in dirt and drank cheap beer at the roof of Erika Computing Headquarters' building in the heavy rain. Actually, instead of beer he could buy triple cannabis with his peanuts but he took this filthy swill to show off to his buddies next day: look at me, I drink natural alcohol, it is not a hippy glitterboys' trash! The fact that there was no bit of natural malt in his bottle didn't interest him.

折り紙 (origami)Does lain make origami? I just started a few days ago. I am not especially creative, but I thought it would be wise for me to have something concrete to help me practice mindfulness. It kind of forces you to be delicate, focused, and patient. Once I get better I will start sharing my work here. I would like to see what lain can make, but feel free to share the work of others too.
