Blobs and yetis

  • Notes

What is this? Notes are monthly posts of curated content, featuring articles, websites, exhibitions, projects, and personal experiences that I find worth sharing. Think of it as a blend of a newsletter, bookmarks, and a public journal.


File over app

Stephan Ango is the CEO of Obsidian , an app I’m using to write these notes before integrating them into this website. His blog is super interesting and I’m really into this thinking of local-first app, where your content is stored on your disk instead of in the cloud on some company’s server. This is something I always keep in mind when developing Fragment as I want the code you write not to be tied to Fragment (too much).

Interaction Design

A (very) long read about interaction design that is also a good demonstration of the attention to detail Rauno Freiberg puts into whatever he makes. If you’re not familiar with his website, I recommend to take a quick tour.

SkiFree but you are the yeti

I spend some much time playing SkiFree as a child on the family computer! This adaptation of the game where you are playing the yeti and you’re not just awaiting his venue scarily is just amazing!

An amazing demonstration of the Oimo physics library with blobs, where the visitor is able to draw the environment and the positions of the blob emitters. Super fun.

Scents of Summer exhibition

I attended the vernissage of the latest solo exhibition of Florian Zumbrunn called “Scents of Summer”. His work looks like paintings from the impressionism era, and they are all made with a computer which is impressive.
