Trump and Erdoğan's sons in law sit across each other at the recent meeting table, each given powerful positions in government. What is the message here?

Ableton made a fun interactive "learn music" tutorial. It runs on the web and you don't need Ableton to use it, although you if you make anything good, it looks like you can export it to Ableton.﻿

n^(-0.5) * exp(i * 101.3178 * log(n))

I expected to see some obvious pattern in the primes at the non-trivial zero 101.3178, but no luck. For 1000 to 9999th primes. n is the height here to bring out the shape.﻿

Good fun this. We got word-completion (autocomplete) for a while now. An now this; pattern completion (autodraw). You input something, the process watching your input gives you an ensemble of suggestions.

This idea can be extended I reckon. At the moment they work in small scale. One word or one pattern at a time. One could design so that the watching process takes the accumulated input into account and keeps giving suggestions to modify or design the past, present and future input.

A bit like Quantum Mechanical ensemble collapse. Each time you pick a suggestion from an ensemble and make more input on that, you could get a new ensemble of suggestions. A bit like a model of consciousness.﻿
Google AutoDraw turns your quick sketch into a nice drawing
