We always wonder what we're looking at when staring into the unknown. And suddenly... Third attempt at deep dreaming using Google's inceptionism tool. Sequence of 100 jpegs. Dogs, eyes, noses... I will have to train my very own neural network. #deepdream

I have a confession to make: I’m still using Flash, deliberately. Yes, that pesky piece of software that’s always nagging and begging to be updated. “You serious?!” you might ask, but there’s one peculiar software I don’t want to miss, and that’s this HAL…

If you use it in Chrome you get the added benefits of a sandboxed version.

Watch Your Parentheses - And nrepl-server Output

Situation: Emacs, cider 0.9, writing some Clojure code. Like this: x (map #(* radius (cos %1) (sin %2)) radian-s radian-t) y (map #(* radius (sin %1) (sin %2)) radian-s radian-t) z (map #(* radius (cos %) radian-t)) See the error? These three lines are…

Clojure: Living Without the For Loop (3)

In this part of our series about transforming imperative Processing code into functional Clojure code we are deconstructing a ‘real’ loop for the first time. The code to be discussed is taken from Matt Pearson’s book ‘Generative Art‘, and we are using…

Second attempt at deep dreaming with Google's inceptionism tool. Own photo, default net. Sequence of 100 jpegs. I especially like these chimeras at the beginning. A bit creepy at the end. #deepdream

Markus Brunetti's portraits of churches are unique: together with his Partner, Betty Schöner, he's traveling through Europe for ten years and taking photos of churches. No normal photos, of course: he takes hundreds to thousands of photos of each facade and stitches them together during a week-long process. The result of hard work and stupendous determination are breathtaking portraits of these churches, depicted in a clean and crisp way never seen before.

Book Review: Living Clojure

Back in the 1990’s I often bought these “Java/C++/DirectX/whatever in 30 hours” books. It always took more than 30 hours to go through them, but after reading them you often had some ground to step on and a basic idea about how to get things working.…

A quick overview on Big Data technologies for logfile analyses. I'm tired of PowerPoint and tried Haikudeck. A few more features would be nice, but it's okay for tomorrow's presentation karaoke.

St Kunibert: 50’s Window Capturing church windows issues a challenge to the photographer. First, there is a technical challenge: how do I take the photograph, consisting of all matters technical, including, but not limited to the point of view, camera…

Clojure: A Gentle Introduction (Chapter 7, Part 6)

Lisp’s every operator takes a predicate and a list as input. If there is no element inhibiting the predicate, then the answer is true. Some samples in Lisp: CL-USER> (every #'numberp '(1 2 3 4 5)) T CL-USER> (every #'numberp '(1 2 3 4 5 A)) NIL CL-USER>…

Story
Tagline
My photo models are at least 100 years old.
Introduction
After a few turbulent years in a science job I became a software developer and system administrator. At the moment, I'm working for the IT branch of one of the bigger German insurers. 

I have some highbrow hobbies like my wife and me growing ferns and palms, calligraphy, history, and dabbling with computers and old cameras. I suppressed my desire to take photos for a long time, but I failed: photography has become my favourite waste of time. My favourite photographic subjects are plants and stones, with some emphasis on (mostly sacral) architecture.

Being in sort of a retro mood induced and fired by my wife, I'm discovering the joys of film photography for some time. And I'm still writing software.
Bragging rights
I'm pretty good at making apple pies. I was programming a supercomputer! (Okay, it was just a Mandelbrot set.) Converging lines in photos are afraid of me.
