    Being implemented in Java and being able to run Java gives Java on Truffle a very interesting property: it can run itself. Indeed, Java on Truffle is a metacircular VM, it can run itself several levels deep (albeit slower and slower every time) https://medium.com/graalvm/java-on-truffle-going-fully-metacircular-215531e3f840

    On Feb 24th at 7pm EST, there'll be a live art performance by Emma Rae Bruml Norton reflecting on the work of Doug Engelbart, titled The Dada of All Demos. I watched Emma's last performance (which was, in my impression, about the mouse as an output device, so to speak) and found it fascinating, so I'm really looking forward to this one. For an early taste, take a look at Emma's site for the event: https://complicatingthecomputermouse.net Here's an excerpt of the description:
    Channeling Engelbart’s energy, The Dada of All Demos will take

    The Mother of All Demos

    as its departure. Participants will engage in a collective scrolling performance lecture performed by Emma Rae Bruml Norton. The performance will seek to re-orient us to something which already exists in the world, something which we always already have a relationship to: the computer mouse.
    The event is free, and you can register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-dada-of-all-demos-tickets-137830164733 Feb 24th, 7pm EST!

    Stephen Kell, "Convivial Design Heuristics for Software Systems" I remember not really following this talk at last year's Salon, and failing to find a copy of the paper. It's up now, and makes a lot more sense. https://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/people/staff/srk21/research/papers/kell20convivial.pdf

    I always enjoy reading interviews with 100 Rabbits. Their perspective on technology is astoundingly pragmatic, and yet very opinionated at the same time. In my dreams, one possible future of programming is that more people can talk about their (technology-driven) projects like that, as if technology didn’t matter that much, wasn't such a big deal and just a tool and you didn’t have to spend years learning how to put together several programming languages on your own to finally feel the freedom of being able to build anything you want.https://esoteric.codes/blog/100-rabbits

    Some time ago I shared a Scratch project by Greg8128. Greg designed is a C-like text language with a compiler/engine programmed using block programming (see this post). Two month later, as he wasn't that satisfied by this language, Greg has implemented a new language, Micron. Based on s-expression this time! And with communication with regular Scratch code using Scratch messages. Here are the documentation and the Scratch project. I really like this kind of weird experiments! It is really refreshing to see people playing and challenging with programming system design in such unexpected place.
