1. The Finnish Karelian coat of arms looks like an Adventure Time character:

    The Russian one is a fire-breathing bear with knuckledusters (pawdusters? clawdusters?), which might also make a good Adventure Time character:

  2. Aaron Parecki: @barnabywalters now this I would like to see!! I was thinking about building a soundcloud-like player as well actually. Even found some libraries to do the mp3 -> png waveform thumbnail generation! #music

    @aaronpk oooh really? Which libraries? I looked a while ago and couldn’t find any, though it looks like it can be done with the new Web Audio APIs…

  3. Had a wonderful time playing at Stóri Eyglóar-dagurinn — thanks to all who came and supported Eygló! Played my new tunes The Taste of Words and Jellyfish 500 (not yet notated), and accompanied Eygló singing Vísur Vatnsenda Rósu and Sofðu unga ástin mín.

    I didn’t video it myself but hope to have one to link to in a week or so.

  4. Attempting to reproduce a weird, That Browser With Flash issue by opening ALL THE TABS:

    It’s like a little mountain range!

    Edit: I made so many tabs they go off the screen, and That Browser With Flash just ignores it, stubbornly insisting that there are only as many tabs as can fit on the screen. Yet another example of Firefox having Superior Prowess (TBWF is seriously fast though)

  5. Zach Pie Inglis: Fancy that! Google and Mozilla are evil, until they hand over some money! http://indiewebcamp.com/2014/UK/Guest_List#Creators (Word of the day; hypocritical.)

    @zachinglis Mozilla is awesome, previous indiewebcamps have been sponsored by all sorts of projects and organisations including MIT, Esri, &yet, Bridgy, Known, NYT, Superfeedr, trrst, etc. Google has been kind enough to provide money for lunch on several occasions.

    Nowhere is either organisation referred to as “evil” (see: “evil”, Google). Indiewebcamp UK 2014 is still looking for sponsors, know anyone who might be interested?

  6. I love that feeling when you play music with someone/some people and it just works, straight away. It feels like cheating but it’s not, it means you’re doing something right.
