Benefits of Gnome-Shell (17.10): Extensions in JS and other Scripting Languages

I use Ubuntu since years (love/hate relationship), and I wasn't happy with discontinuation of Unity but switching to GNOME (pedantic and reduced configuration).

Today I was testing 17.10 and gnome shell extensions, and I realized I can code in JavaScript - what a suprise! Additionally people began to interface simple shell or general scripts (shell, python, perl) to interface extensions: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1176/argos/ by +Philipp Emanuel Weidmann

Writing extensions in a few mins . . .

Note:
- installing extensions is cumbersome and not automated (~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/*) + GNOME Tweak Tool -> Extensions -> enable OFF -> ON
- installing "Argos Scripts" isn't automated (resolving dependencies) yet, (~/.config/argos/*)
- gnome-shell restart with Wayland doesn't work, use `killall -HUP gnome-shell`

Hopefully things streamline better in the future - so there is one benefit to use gnome-shell with Ubuntu for me :-)

Procedural Art: Discourse in Distortion

A side project has been to create procedural graphical identifiers, like favicons or identicons, and played with some sin() & cos() and 100 colors in hue/saturation/light space: x,y = 0..1, m = 0, 1, 2, 3 (degree of distortion); f[0..12] = rand()

Secure & Decentralized Messaging = Replacing Email?

I have started to move my personal correspondence away from Gmail to Protonmail.com +ProtonMail (spiritdude@...), and invited friends to do as well. Protonmail provides end-to-end encrypted emailing if both parties are there. There are a few things I don't like but I hope they fix it ([...] icon hides portion of replied email).

But I'm moving from one service provider to another, which gives me desired features, yet, I like to use a decentralized messaging service, not Signal/WhatsApp/SMS but like email where I can quote and reply inline for indepth discussion. Do you know of any?

Once in a while I encounter true pearls of video art:
Sigur Rós: Route One or 24 hours video & music recorded at Midsummer 2016 in Iceland, while driving 24 hrs at the coastline of Iceland and the sun never sets . . . published in 3 parts (9+9+6hrs).
