Star Wars #1 ~ Hannibal vs. Rome

Cicero, the Roman philosopher/politician, didn't believe in astrology. In his book De Divinatione he wrote "Did all the Romans who fell at Cannae have the same horoscope? Yet all had one and the same end." The Battle of Cannae was the bloodiest battle in the Second Punic War. It’s even one of the bloodiest battles in all the history of war. An estimated 70.000 Roman soldiers died in a matter of hours.

AI ~ Judgement day or eternal life?

Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Billl Gates are worried about Artificial Intelligence. They warn us for a future where killer robots wipe out humanity. On the other hand, AI-believers like Ben Goertzel and Ray Kurzweil think AI is about living forever and uploading yourself in a computer. How strange. Here's our take: superintelligent robots will discover how stuff like telepathy and astrology works.

Is Deep Learning the new 42?



Microphone technique vs. a debate about the future of high tech. Hilarious. If you're interested in the musical side of Deep Learning, try Sirajology on DopeLearning. If you're a dubb scientist, read Wavenet: a generative model for raw audio, a new paper from the Go-champions of Deepmind. Eurorack lovers could try The Oracle.

Astrology and music: how planets and musicians interact


In this post we present the first results of a new Dubbhism research program. We're looking at the astrological influence of the planets in the birth charts of musicians. For our research, we don't use regular astrology (zodiac signs, houses etc.). Dubbhism astrology is mostly about the 'basics' and a touch of the Golden Ratio.

Multiple Index 2016

Everybody needs multiples. You can never have enough multiples. The modular industry understands this; it designs and produces new multiples every year. To stay on top of this, we counted the number of available multiples on Modulargrid back in april 2015. This year we did the same thing. The result: the Dubbhism Multiple Index 2016.

10 philosopher scientists for the 21st century


The 20th century had it's fair share of great philosopher scientists. Names like Durkheim, Weber, Freud, Jung, Whitehead, Einstein, Bohr, Pauli, Buckminster Fuller, Bohm and Penrose come to mind. So who are the Big Names for the 21st century? It's hard to predict the future of science, but we're putting our money on complexity.

Fair hardware

While it's virtually impossible to assemble a 'fair trade' PC, the mobile phone business is now ready for an honesty-and-solidarity-upgrade. FairPhone 2 is "ethical, open and built to last". The design philosophy is aimed squarely against planned obsolescence, illegal mining and exploitation of factory workers to the point of suicide.Crucial!

Linux for beginners

In the cases of Google and Facebook, their intimate relation with the military-industrial complex isn't obvious for average users, but the Big Brother-features of Windows 10 are so in-your-face they even scare your mamma. Altho it's hard to predict where this will end, one thing is clear: Linux, the open alternative, is ready to take over.

The Music House in Utrecht

The Music House in Utrecht is the place to be for Dutch A-100 users. You don't just go there to buy stuff. You get coffee, lots of bla bla, photoshoots with random female shoppers posing with vintage gear, more coffee and more bla. When this is done, you get your new gear. Martijn doesn't mind selling the odd ukelele, but Doepfer is still #1.
