I received my contributor's copy of Jhave's _ReRites - Raw Output / Responses_ the other day and I highly recommend it, both as a record of a poet's sustained engagement with machine learning, and as a book of, like, good poems.
also included: a bunch of fun insightful essays written in response to the project by (e.g.) @nickmofo and Johanna Drucker. (and *me*, actually, and it's still surreal to see an essay I wrote in same book as all these writers I look up to!)

cranky programming complain about paths and handles
who are these people writing functions that require paths and not just file handles, like I've always got an actual file on an actual disk I can pass in
especially if you're just using the path to sniff the data format by checking the extension! maybe just let me specify the file format when I call the function?

religion, ritual, vrchat
there is so much here that predisposes me to believe it's going to be irredeemably absurd, or just a joke, but it's actually pure and good and I watched the video and it made me cry https://www.polygon.com/2019/5/20/18632723/vr-chat-baptism-anime-girl-dj-soto
