  • Closed Registration for a Small Web

    Signing up for an account on the web is generally pretty low-friction, but I question whether it ought to be. If we think about web infrastructure at its foundational level, signing up for an account puts you into a pretty strong relationship of trust between me (a systems administrator) and you (someone using my system). Your data lives on my computer, and I allow you to put your data on my computer. Is this really something that should be open to anyone? Building a small web service means that you control these standards, not just at a social level, but at a technical one. Since many people, especially developers, are mostly intimately familiar with big web platforms, they tend to reproduce them (intentionally or not) in small web platforms. But I think there's a lot of ways in which technical mechanisms need to adapt to meet the needs of smaller communities, and a lot of exploration that needs to be done in terms of what that technology looks like, and I think some sort of closed-signup mechanism is one key component.

    Despite that, and with a weird certainty, something tells me that the voice might now be more real than ever. Maybe it really is her suggesting that I try recreate that sound using a different oscillator or make that lyric a bit more fun. Maybe she’s here right now, visiting from a place with no rules and no limitations. Maybe she’s become a part of me, a part of everyone who loved her in their own way. It’s indescribable, to have lost a friend who was so caring and so real, and whose presence was a constant affirmation of life itself. And it makes me feel just like we never said...

  • Hyperlocal radio in 1980s Tokyo (Interconnected)

    This station took advantage of a loophole in Japanese broadcasting legislation, which stipulated that devices under a legally-defined power threshold — usually requiring less than one watt of power — could transmit on the air without a license. Using a legal very low-powered FM transmitter, members of Radio Home Run transmitted a signal able to reach listeners within about 500 meters of the station’s antenna. However, Tokyo’s high population density meant that this relatively weak transmitter still had massive possibilities, since its comparatively small coverage area still contained about “20,000 residents, all potential listeners”.
