The predominant UI paradigm seems to be mimicking mechanical or electromechanical tools. Word processors pretend to be an extended typewriter, simulating ink on paper. Web browsers - something between an electronic newsletter and a TV. Messengers - an easy to use telegraph.
The use of computers as flexible information processing machines, that could be instructed to peform interesting stuff for you in semi-automatic way, remains sort of beyond the definition of normal for no reason.
We live in a "vision-first" society. Vision is, however, selective. You can only see a fraction of your environment at a time, with the most detailed picture in an even smaller area. Hearing is 360° and continuous.
Opening oneself a bit more to sound and listening can thus be an acccessible way to practice a more contemplative, sensitive, relaxed and less "segmented" percetion of a moment (or an arbitrary continuity of moments).
A very real-world introduction to web #accessilibility with a high degree of practical information on accessibility that is far form obvious (like how to make a replacement checkbox that is still discoverable by a vision-impired user on a touch screen device by sliding their finger over it). Highly recommend for anyone who is seeking practical experience with accessible web development.
(Also, JS is a must for accessible modals :( )
Okay, good to know, thanks #Mozilla for moving a feature instead of removing it this time.

i want to validate this concept (and will again in the future): do you want a linux pocket computer that is not primarily a smartphone, but could be an alternative/substitute for a smartphone? i.e. not focused on the telephone aspect, but on text/writing/CLI/web.
one idea (librem 5 has this already): pluggable cell modem if you want. alternatively wifi or tether to dumbphone/other smartphone.
Cute video of the third Martian flight (filmed by Perseverance):
whole point of this was to get a crab looking at a cell phone which is turning out to not be an easy thing to pose

Since this is somewhat new to me, I'm not sure what criteria I should have regarding the CPU/GPU platform.
I know Intel is well supported in the mainline kernel; but should I consider a laptop with an AMD GPU?
I'm not so sure with NVidia - don't really want any proprietary drivers.

tomorrow a very special rendition of M. Delak's piece for 5 contemporary performers called "Just for Today"
if you are into slow evolving art, somewhat aesthetically bare/stripped down, (my) sounds, or any stage art for that matter, you'd not want to miss this. Not sure if we'll ever do this again in this way.
