This week’s discoveries

-If you haven't read it, this interview with Bartholomäus Traubeck , who got honorary mentions Ars Electronica PRIX in 2012 with his piece: "Years".

-This video he mentions in the same interview:

-A great guide from Amanda Ghassaei to Max/MSP on Instructables. Max/MSP is very similar to Pure Data (actually Pd is very similar to it, since the same person/people from Max team built Pd later on) but has a better interface imho. An essential tool for creating interactive works and for much more.

-The concept of a Harmonic Table. This attracted my attention, since it would be a great idea for building generative soundscapes and artworks. Coding this structure in Python would be a nice idea, I will keep that in my mind. Why Python? Two reasons, first it is very easy to write and code. Second, you can do lots of stuff inside Python and extend the scope of your code greatly by sending the data to other platforms, frameworks and programs. So go Python!

-This guide on encryption by LifeHacker.Don't forget to check the other links in the article if you find it interesting!

This guide on the Virtual Machine concept. What is a Virtual Machine and why use it? Basically it is a software that enables you to use an OS (say Windows) while you are using your current one (say OS X) without needing to restart your system and easily benefit from the use of multiple OS's.
