The Bandcamp 2017 Year in Review « Bandcamp Daily
Bandcamp is one of my favourite internet things; it's where the majority of music I purchase comes from, and discovery via the streaming services I pay for regularly leads to purchases from Bandcamp. And I'm now doubled-down on it, as an artist who sells through them. Their brief year-in-review piece is always worth a read.

LSD neural net - Jonas Degrave
Generative imagery, derived by running neural networks backwards on photos - and then streaming it all to Twitch, using Twitch Chat for input. It's the last bit that makes it great: as I type, nearly 10,000 people have seen this psychedelic mess (and 100 are watching right now).

Generating and Streaming Potentially Large CSV files using Ruby on Rails - Sohan's Blog
The most useful tips in here: set the right headers; set the body of the response to an enumerator and it'll iterate over it, streaming it.

A breakdown of 2013's most fascinating video game moment | Polygon
"In another view, the "true Spelunky" is the live-streamed experience, both for broadcaster and spectator. Spelunky - as a concept, as an experience, as an entity — isn't just the game binary that you download onto your computer. It's also the Twitter banter about the game; it's the daily slog to get better at the game, slowly but surely, death after death; it's the communal effort to uncover new exploits and weird secrets; it's something that's equally "ours" as it is Mossmouth's. Spelunky, like any sport or game that matters — I mean really matters — is inseparable from the culture around it." Doug Wilson's analysis of Bananasaurus Rex's Solo Eggplant Run makes a great late contender for games writing of the year. It's precise, expert, and yet exciting, all at once; it demystifies and celebrates all at once. Great stuff.

GDC 2010: Streaming Massive Environments from 0 to 200 MPH « Double Buffered
"Here’s my notes for the talk Streaming Massive Environments from 0 to 200 MPH presented by Chris Tector from Turn 10 Studios. He’s listed as a Software Architect there, and obviously has a deep understanding of the streaming system they used on Forza 3. This talk was nice and deep technically, and touches all parts of the spectrum." Very technical. But: if you can grok what's going on (and this is about at the limits of my simple understanding - could barely start to recreate what's described), it's very interesting about the challenge of rendering beautiful, high detail environments at a solid 60fps, mainly by pre-preparing a lot, and maximising streaming performance both from disk and from memory.

Four Walks
"I did a set of four walks in Austria; two long ones, two short ones. I did some "daystreaming" where using bits of technology I was updating my location, status and pictures as I walked." Ambient information gathering, whilst taking in the outdoors, and all for charity. Lovely.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun: Dr Who’s new toy » RPS At E3: APB - The Most Important Game At E3
"Jones said how most open city games tend to come with about 100 licensed tracks, but that they realised that most players would far rather listen to their own mp3 collection. But this is an online game. So they’ve done a deal with Last.FM to use their technology in such a brilliantly imaginative way. If you’re listening to a favourite track in your car, and drive past some other players, should they have the same track on their hard drive the game will find it, and they’ll hear it from your car as you go by. Should they not have it, the game will find a track that’s similar and play that instead." Just that quotation alone is remarkable, but it really does sound like APB is something special; let's just hope it's a success.

Shiba Inu Puppy Cam, Ustream.TV
I have had this in the top corner of my screen as a kind of company. They are delightful little things. I am not normally a dog person, or sentimental, but they're just too delightful. Especially when they're asleep.

The Continuous World of Dungeon Siege
Technically hardcore, dense paper explaining how the Dungeon Siege environment was constructed without a loading screen. Word of the day: "frustrum". Interesting stuff in here. Now, how to apply it?
