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 combinations 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.

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.
