Data to Sound, Black Mirror, Emulation, and PGP Vulnerability
- Sonify — use data to create and play MIDI files.
- Recoding Black Mirror — workshop at WWW ’18. Paper a Day has reader’s digest versions of the papers in two parts.
- Pi1541 — a real-time, cycle exact, Commodore 1541 disk drive emulator that can run on a Raspberry Pi 3B (or 3B+). […] Pi1541 emulates a 6502 and the two 6522s. Any code it is asked to run is run in a cycle exact way. Amazing to live in a time when we can emulate three (admittedly much slower) CPUs in real time on a cheap piece of commodity kit.
- EFAIL — vulnerabilities in the end-to-end encryption technologies OpenPGP and S/MIME that leak the plaintext of encrypted emails. See EFF’s recommendation not to use PGP.
