An interesting blog post argues that we are living through a golden age of programming language research. I like the point that dynamic languages such as Perl, Python, Ruby and Javascript have done more to popularise functional programming concepts than anything else put together.

A post about the mathematical structure of the chord progression in the main them of Severance. I am a mathematically-minded person who enjoys music which is based on mathematical concepts, but I have to admit that the mathematical structures used by a composer such as Xenakis, for example, never come to mind when I'm enjoying his music. And without spoiling anything, I didn't find Severance to be that mind-blowing, although I enjoyed all of the performances. I do find it strange that Apple are sponsoring a show with such a dark view of the totalising nature of corporate life.

Yet another post about colour theory, which I haven't read in full, but collecting peoples' attempts to make sense of colour is a minor preoccupation of mine, whether they are right or wrong.
