Tsuki ga Kirei is beautiful.

It isn't even the magical rim-lit art-direction they have going. The characters and most crucially the character animations​ are so tangibly real. Deliciously awkward. And they're not free either, their emotions. They stare, they pause, they​ monolog about things other than what they're thinking. Reads vague, I know, but didn't look vague if you watch it.

And it totally isn't a shill for a certain messaging app that's big in Japan!

Beautiful. Perhaps like the moon if you like your aesthetic metaphors celestial.

Quill will never be open source or cross-platform, but it will create inspire many!

Such characterful jittery long-hold animation! Love it. It does look like there's rigging and deformation involved, so it must've been Mr. Fujita's aesthetic choice.

Build a Better Monster: Morality, Machine Learning, and Mass Surveillance

Build a Better Monster: Morality, Machine Learning, and Mass Surveillance

Build a Better Monster. This is the text version of "Build a Better Monster: Morality, Machine Learning, and Mass Surveillance", a talk I gave on April 18, 2017, at the Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise conference in Philadelphia. I came to the United States as a six year old kid from Eastern Europe.

I was right about Seikaisuru Kado, and I haven't even seen "episode 1."

Also, damn good animetype cgi. Not perfect though, ofc.

Also also, lately I've been thinking about aspects of direction that do it don't well. Without erecting a wall of text nobody cares to read I'll just record that I think the pilot episode of Kado had traits of both. In it's narrative direction, mind you, not the art direction (alright I have analogous opinions about that too, but they're a bit more easy to infer.)

The way the pilot tells a perfectly mundane story about two old friends and the human nature of​ both research and bureaucracy will last a long time. But how the entire story was framed to accentuated just the main character seems harmless now, but will dramatically become tacky in years to come. Most shows from the nineties and early noughts gets swamped with the latter. Whether Kado will or not will be hard to say the main story will be very different from the pilot. But I think it shows potential.

Which is to say, I think it's hard-sci-fi and human interaction focus will out weigh it's reliance on tropes with limited shelf life.

If the pipeline isn't opensource it might as well not exist.

And before anyone starts whinging about "R&D costs" I said the pipeline. Not the hardware.

A minor detail is something this one does not understand. We observe the path of All-YIS-UN and Yabalchoath that much further, and yet they are only visiting Xe Tao. How may we deign observe what is to come this much further and may this be a deception? 97, Rakes The Night Sky. April 19, 2017 ...

Regardless if you live in a country where the Google Earth Android app is inexplicably blocked (but the web and desktop versions are not,) and use a browser that isn't Google—which is to say you value your tab-space, you can watch this fine N&L (oh is it N&F now?) video explaining how Google does it.
