This author bashes the golden ratio specifically when he misses that its not just the golden ratio but ratios in general that are universally beautiful hence why everyone agrees tiling patterns, fractals 2D/3D, recursive patterns, Luis Sullivan, leaves, trees, rivers etc are pretty. Had he taken the time to actually investigate he might have found that it is the interrelationship of ratios we find beautiful. fact. He can't see or understand beyond this one singular variable. really sad that this is a voice of the art community. #felixhoenikker  
The golden ratio is total nonsense in design. Here's why.

Wow I wish I would have moved to SF a long time ago. Feel like I'm being courted by a different company every day. Guess folks are starting to realize all that crazy bantering about tech over the last few wasn't so crazy.

Ohhhh so I'm just figuring this stuff out on my own, consistently being told I don't know what I'm doing then I see this. I hate my life. Honestly there is no reward or merit or integrity to anything. Just a bunch of people running around trying to convince each other how great they at minimal effort. Fml really 
Lumenous uses 3D scanning and advanced computer vision to revolutionize a technology called projection mapping. Projection mapping uses everyday video projectors (as used in conference rooms), but instead of projecting on a flat screen, light is mapped onto any surface, turning common objects ...

Ps if you're an engineer and you don't know what optimal capital structure means then you've not taken the time to investigate the mechanics of business and you aren't that good of an engineer. Please stop projecting how smart you think you are, I'm here to help you all. Don't even need to pay me. I know a better way... passive aggressiveness I'm stupid lmao

Been all over goldlink and kaytray, posting it here for years. Rick Rubin is forgetting Mr Carmack is going interstellar. I know my technology but I know my music better. #felixhoenikker 
Rick Rubin's got his ear to the streets. Peep six young artists he's flown in for sessions.

potato head people, called it a couple years ago #felixhoenikker   #potatoheadpeaple  
Growing up in the shadow of a talented sibling can be stressful -- especially if your older brother is someone as iconic as J Dilla. But that doesn't seem to have slowed down Detroit rapper Illa J in the slightest. He's been working on a collaborative album with the Canadian production duo Potatohead People due out late summer or early fall, and today we're premiering the first single from that project "Strippers." Those familiar with Dilla's lay...

Spent all morning listening to a team of phds (from a very prestigious program) describe an automated projection mapping tech startup they formed. identical to what i posted on here for the last 3 years. I dont get it, i taught myself to do this alone in less than a year and people are telling me i need to go get my mba? why can no one support me in what is clearly a valuable vision that spans industries and beyond a complex combination of engineering and business know how. silicon valley is in such a huge engineering bubble. what happens when engineers run out of good ideas. #felixhoenikker

Silicon Valley is in the middle of an an engineering bubble explaining the apparent but not true "tech bubble" I came to realize this because I am learning engineering at an alarming rate when there is actually no good reason for it other than ego desiring over pay for marginal talent. That's what Silicon Valley is currently bringing you, marginal talent. Then there are creative engineering renaissance types that can master many industries in a few short years and go completely unnoticed. I guess that's to be expected living under the fat tail of the bell curve. God help us all. but we severely need to return to fundamental science in such a bad way it worries me.

I think selection bias is one of the most interesting topics in regards to humans around. We consistently and quantifiably self sabotage... but why? Not everyone hates their dad.

It is amazing to me how many world class engineers would rather call me to raise money before even going to apple. I am better and Silicon Valley doesn't know shit, my existence is proof enough. Not hyperbolic, simple observation. You probably don't know who i am or what I do. #felixhoenikker
