A move’s score increases for positive outcomes like landing on solid ground, squashing an enemy, moving closer to the goal line, or headbutting a |?| box. The score decreases for negative outcomes like being killed by an enemy or falling in a pit.

The Loss of Parker Forest
Winnipeg city council has approved a city land-swap with developer Andrew Marquess of GEM equities. 59 acres of unserviced city land in the Parker neighbourhood will be traded for nine acres of serviced land in the Fort Rouge Yards. The city wants the Fort Rouge land for a future rapid transit corridor. Marquess wishes to build 3500 townhouses on the Parker land.
Nearly half of the Parker land being given to Marquess is forested. I spent a few afternoons in the summer of 2006 exploring the Parker Forest and I have returned to it often since. Here’s how I described it back then:
The forest is triangle shaped, with an estimated area of over 100,000 meters squared (or .1km2), and is composed of tall prairie grasses, dense forest (mainly Trembling Aspen with some Bur Oak), and (presently dry) wetland. It sits on what I believe to be CN land, south of Taylor Ave.
I discovered this forest during a Glutton University field trip in 2003. It remains my favourite secret forest in Winnipeg. It appears that I’m not alone; after following some human tracks we spied a campground, their tent fire red, camouflaged by the afternoon sunlight.
Hopefully this land is never sold for development.
The debate is complex. In-fill housing development is preferable over sprawl, especially if the housing is affordable. But the land they need to build this housing is of particular beauty and importance. Urban forests play a role in our communities as spaces of leisure, sport, relaxation and socialization. Most importantly they are home to numerous wild plants, insects, and animals. I’ve spied fire-files in the Parker grasses at night and local residents have spotted everything from deer to lynx.
The density of the proposed housing is also very steep. If we alot 5% of the land for roads, infrastructure and public space that leaves us with 56 acres. To accommodate 3500 townhouses they would need to build 63 townhouses per acre. (One acre is a little smaller than an American football field.)
For a better idea of what 63 dwelling units per acre (or du/ac) looks like, take a peak at these 40-60 du/ac communities and 60-80 du/ac communities in California.
Here are some excerpts of recent Winnipeg Free Press Letters to the Editor on the subject:
A Lot to Lose
If you woke one morning to find bulldozers tearing down the park that your kids play in to build a fire hall and had to open the paper or be called by a neighbour to find out what’s happening, would you be upset?
I live on Parker Avenue. I have a lot to lose. Collectively, our neighbours have a lot more invested in our neighbourhood than any developer or any elected official. I believe we have a right and a duty to speak out.
In Fill Instead of Sprawl
[The proposed development is] “infill” instead of sprawl. It is dense housing, compared to single housing farther to the south. And if rumours are true, it is low income housing, something the city needs more of desperately.
I hope city council will consider things like a linear parkway, bike paths and green space paralleling the busway, and I look forward to more decisions that recognize the value of building on lands inside the existing city instead of the constant sprawling so-called developments that left such areas vacant for so many years.
[T]his protest, for me at least, has nothing to do with keeping out low rentals. What it has to do with is the fact that nobody at city hall bothered to ask any questions before agreeing to this land swap. Nobody asked: What kind of community are we infringing on; what is on the current site; how is the current site being used; what would be lost if it was bulldozed; what is it really worth on the open market; is it even developable?*
All of these questions must be asked as part of a due diligence process, but were never asked. The people of Winnipeg deserve better.
The Canadian government has just launched the first public consultation on copyright since 2001.
It’s time to speak up unless we want to see a repeat of the copyright amendment bill C-61 tabled last year. (C-61 “died on the table” when Parliament was dissolved last fall for an election.)

Processing - Presented by co-creators Ben Fry and Casey Reas
I’ve written about Processing here before. It is still my goto tool for visual coding.

Should the concept of literacy be expanded to include programming fluency.
Max / MSP / Jitter - Presented by Luke Dubois
Max / MSP / Jitter is a graphical programming environment for music, audio and media. A patcher based languages that shares roots with Pd which was demoed in the morning.
I guess I’m a FLOSS snob; although this environment looks much more polished than Pd, I gave it less attention because it’s a commercial product. (There’s a 30-day trail version, but the full bundle costs $699 USD.)
Reminder to check out the work of Michael Joaquin Grey, especially Recapitulate: Retrace, Erase, Repeat which uses Goya’s The Disasters of War etchings as source fodder.
Also, check out Hello World, The Song (in Max/MSP)
VVVV - Presented by Sebastian Oschatz
Vvvv is a video-synthesis toolkit. The programming interface is similar to the patch-base language we’ve already seen (Pd and Max/MSP), graphical function-blocks connected with wires. For a more detailed look read Ctrl+B For Concurrency.
Of the visual languages presented at the conference, vvvv is the only one I downloaded and experimented with. Oh I do wish for infinite time to play with all these wonderful tools.
Read the vvvv licensing page, commercial vs. non-commercial uses.
This language doesn’t contain any explicit looping structures.
Nerdy VJs would go wild for this.

openFrameworks - Presented by Zachary Lieberman, Theodore Watson, Arturo Castro
openFrameworks is a C++ library for creative coding. It was described as a glue languages wrapping together several commonly-used open-source multimedia libraries. Minimal Design: There are very few classes, and inside of those classes, there are very few functions.
Looks fast! Might lend itself nicely to augmented reality projects.
Evening - Dorkbot @ Brillobox
The Dorkbot Pecha Kucha at the Brillobox was fun. I presented early having greatly under-estimated the length of my presentation. The 10 minutes were over quickly, and I fear my last few minutes were a muddle.
Delicious beers were consumed. I chatted with some wonderful people.

John Conway (of Game of Life fame) is currently presenting a series of public lectures at Princeton to explain his work with Simon Kochen on the free will of elementary particles.
They assert, roughly, “that if indeed we humans have free will, then elementary particles already have their own small share of this valuable commodity. [… A] particle’s response [to human intervention] (to be pedantic—the universe’s response near the particle) is not determined by the entire previous history of the universe.”

Sunday - Toolkit Overviews and Dorkbot @ Brillobox
Sunday was a day of presentations. From 8:45 to 17:45 we were treated to 45 minute demos of various arty programming toolkits. In the evening there was a Dorkbot Pecha Kucha-ish gathering at a pub called the Brillobox.
Some notes I jotted down during the presentations:
Alice - Presented by CMU’s Don Slater.
Alice is a 3D programming environment for creating animations, games and videos. 3d models of objects and characters are programmed visually by dragging/dropping/connecting various Instruction-Tiles together.
Five Fundamentals of Programming
- Data Persistence (Variables)
- Methods (Modular Abstractions)
Pd - Presented by Hans-Christoph Steiner
Pd or Pure Data is a graphical programming language for audio and video programming. Data (most often audio signals) flows through various specialized transformation or generation nodes/objects which are visually connected together by the programmer using “wires”.
1000 words == Picture
Closed tools split creators from consumers.
We need to think about programming as something every does / will do.
Scratch - Presented by John Maloney and Evelyn Eastmond
Scratch is a graphical programming environment for children ages 8 and up. Like Alice, the programs are created by snapping graphical blocks together.
Remixing of Scratch programs is encourage via their website.
There appears to be a nice learning path from Scratch through Processing to Java. Perhaps we could use Scratch as an introductory programming language at the college. David Malan has been using it for a intro comp sci course at Harvard.
Scratch is implemented in Squeak Smalltalk.
May 16th is Scratch Day.
Hackety Hack - Presented by _why
Hackety Hack is a Ruby-based environment designed to make programming accessible for kids, (especially teenagers). Its motivation: The Little Coder’s Predicament
Why claims to be a freelance professor, in other words, half-way between a scarecrow and a seeing eye dog.
A logic/programming card game called kaxXxt is also in the works.

Art and Code - Overview Part I
It’s about time I wrote an overview of my Art and Code experience.
Saturday - Workshops and Church Brews
The day began with a walk by the Cloud Factory followed by two programming workshops with lunch between them. There were 9 simultaneous morning and afternoon workshops. Choosing just two was frustrating. Another day of workshops would have been delightful.
I attended Information Visualization and Play Games with Hackety Hack.
Information Visualization - Ben Fry
Ben Fry along with Casey Reas created the Processing language “for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions.” I first discovered Processing (aka p5) in January of 2004. One of my first sketches stitched together MRI brain-scan images into an interactive animation. (See: my early p5 sketches and a more recent sketch.)
Ben’s lecture focused on using visuals to effectively communicate complex information. Shout outs to Edward Tufte and Mark Lombardi (See: Lombardi 1 & Lombardi 2)
Info Viz Workflow:
- An Important Visualization
- It’s easy to lie with statistics and maps [pdf].
- Using Cartoon Faces to Represent Multi-dimensional Datasets (More: Chernoff Faces and Face Saver)
During the experimentation part of this workshop I began working on the Marvel “Social Network” visualization.
Lunch was tabbouleh salad, hummus, pitas and an apple.
Hackety Hack - _why
Why began the afternoon workshop with a song accompanied by autoharp. Then we played with a pre-release of Hackety Hack, a Ruby-based toolkit for learning to code.
Some Notable Features:
Bloopsaphone songs and sounds:
b = Bloops.new b.tempo = 320 # Where s1 is a bloopsaphone sound that can be # generated for you or created by you. b.tune s1, "f#5 c6 e4 b6 g5 d6 4 f#5 e5 c5 b6 c6 d6 4 " b.play sleep 1 while !b.stopped?
- A vim-style (aka modal) drawing tool.
- Integrated mail client for sharing code.
- A Dingbat sprite library for game creation.
- IRC-like chat channels for human or programmatic communication. (For example, we wrote “chat” apps that allowed us to communicate by colour. Each rectangle in this image represents someone in the room.).
- Embedded Try Ruby
- Built in Tutorials / Lessons (Similar to the original Hackety Hack)
- Database (sqlite?) tables for data persistency.
The kid sitting to my left (maybe 12 or 13 years old) was new to programming. He was enthralled by the Hackety experience. I could almost hear his brain rewiring as he started to grok Ruby. Okay, I could literally hear it too, as he asked me a number of great programming questions.
After the workshop I spent some time chatting with Why and a group of fun and friendly Ottawarians. (Is that the right term for someone from Ottawa?) We eventually found our way to Church Brew Works (a restaurant and micro-brewery inside an old church) for a lovely dinner with some lovely beers. It took a while to obtain a table for 13, but good times were had by all.

Art and Code - Day 1 - Morning
I arrived in Pittsburgh last night. The Cathedral of Learning is just outside my hotel. (Check out the commons room.)
Last week I read Michael Chabon’s The Mysteries of Pittsburgh (thanks Jeff!). I walked by the Cloud Factory on the way to registration this morning.
Next up is Information Visualization with Processing presented with Ben Fry.
This afternoon I’ll attend Make Games with Hackety Hack on Your Laptop Right There on Your Lap with mr. why the lucky stiff.
Right now I’m enjoying a coffee inside Carnegie Mellon’s Baker Hall.
An artist who has 5000 hardcore fans to give him or her $20 each year (for their music, art, etc) stands to make $100K per year.
or: 100,000 fans @ $1 (digital download) or 1,000,000 fans @ 10 cents (micropayment)!
Sure, there might be overhead costs in the production of said music/art, but even if this overhead was an outrageous %50 of the profit, you’d still be making $50K per year.
BabyLolly Featured In Winnipeg Free Press
I’m very excited to announce the launch of our new website, BabyLolly.com. For the past year I’ve been working along with my friend Andrew Burton, my sister Colleen Geske, and her husband Moses Faleafaga, on this online babybook and social network for families.
Today we were featured in the business section Winnipeg Free Press.

“I am looking for writings on Mimesis in regards new, digital, hypertext and hypermedial technologies and cultures.
I am following the redefinition of mimesis. From Plato’s disregard of oral culture, through his mimesis of Socrates’ dialogues in writing. Following Plato, Aristotle’s theory was always a written mimesis, thus the order and processes of representation and mimicry were fundamentally written.
In essence, I am interested in how the artifacts of oral culture differed in their mimesis to written culture, and thus, how our modern move from a written to a digital/hypertextual culture will similarly impact on mimetic embodiment.”

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is required by mandate to make its programming “available throughout Canada by the most appropriate and efficient means.” Using BitTorrent allows the CBC to meet this target. However, when they experimented with this technology last year, many users were blocked by their ISP due to BitTorrent’s association with piracy.
The Glosnost Results show that at least 10 Canadian ISPs block BitTorrent outright. Canadian ISPs are also starting use traffic-shaping techniques to throttle-down the speed of all BitTorrent traffic.

Sir Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?
“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything original.”
The analysis of pop music easily devolves into righteousness and pretense, but Matthew Perpetua has been doing a great job since 2002. Fluxblog was my first (the first?) exposure to mp3 blogs, and it continues to deliver. Take the recent analysis of Lily Allen’s Fear, the inspiration for this post:
“Vapid, cynical, hyper-consumerist neo-celebs of the Paris Hilton/Heidi Montag variety are utterly loathsome, but when we tear into them in comedy and art, it can often seem too easy and overly mean-spirited in way that eclipses any righteousness we could hope to claim in calling out their grotesque antics. Yes, they are clearly villains in the context of our culture, but on scale, they’re more like the Goombas in the Super Marios Bros. games — cannon fodder along the path to the Big Bosses.”
