^That I found to be really intriguing. It's like not only did Turing invent the concept of the modern computer, but he also created math on paper that is remarkably similar to programmed shaders.

^^Context free. Very nice tool. Could easily be used to generate content for milkdrop textures. Here's some code me and Eo.S. (and a friend) have written for it... http://www.contextfreeart.org/gallery/view.php?id=2065

^Structure Synth is like a 3d version of this. The syntax is slightly different, but it's generally more of the same with a new dimension.

Here's a piece of code for that program to start off with and or remix...

Anyway. As for me and Eo.S. we're doing well. Still making artwork and programming, working in video games. (We have our own studio) Here's a batch of prints I just got done recently that are going into stores on Monday...

Random illustration work...

and here's some recent tracks

Just in case anyone was wondering, we're doing great.
