BOASTS AND SHAMES


i am one of the best writers in the world. i am working on an entirely new
mode of writing. my writing is the most intense in the world. it is a com-
pletely new direction for political discourse. it will be years before i
am recognized.  long after i am dead my writing will be read. new audien-
ces will discover new ways of reading my work. my work is not recognized
as poetry, fiction, non-fiction, net-art, non-fiction, or codework. i am
not recognized as the last romantic or the first harbinger of the future
of all culture. i will be recognized as all of these. scholars will search
through net archives, print sources, remnants of film, video, recordings,
for the slightest trace of my work. my work will be attributed to others.
there will be academic journals devoted to my work, and reputations will
rise and fall based on competing hypotheses. my works will be searched for
clues of identity, madness, influence, primogeniture. and i am ashamed of
this. i am ashamed for my contemporaries who find me arrogant, crazy,
dismissive, depressive, hysteric, obscene, furious, a nuisance, a pest,
useless, demanding, hyperbolic, obsessive, full of myself, elitist, vile -
a bad writer, a writer with too much writing - a non-writer - a videomaker
with too much video, filmmaker with too much film - an obscene organist, a
manic fake... i am ashamed for myself, who can only plead guilty to these
charges, these horrendous accusations. i am ashamed for our country, which
refuses me the honors i deserve. my work is subject to misunderstanding;
it requires patience that no one has and no one wants to give. i am
ashamed that i will no longer be alive when, in the troubling and far-
distant future, my work is rediscovered, for its insights, genius, range,
and all-encompassing worlds of philosophy, psychology, literature, and
fields not yet discovered. and i am ashamed that i must admit to this
truth, still so early in my career.

Subject: Definitions of SPAM

Definitions of SPAM

White Spam (common definition) messages that look like created by
computer programs. The receiver has the feeling he is not dealing with
a human. Cold communication, but communication.

Pink Spam (common definition) spam that uses a human output. Spam that
gives the receiver a feeling a real human is communicating something
personally. In the end the writer (=sender) always wants something
(=money).

Red Spam (common definition) messages that plead for a cause, mostly
send out by activists.

Brown Spam (common definition) Simple messages that target in
most cases human shortcommings, how to loose weight, viagra, penis or
breast enlargement, etc.

Black Spam (common definition) Spam that doesn't communicate, a good
example is chinese messages send to people from countries that use
different characters.

Subject: Re:  The Digital Writer



I've written smaller essays throughout my work on this. Code itself, as
far as I'm concerned, is neutral, or almost neutral. The 'hello world'
beginning programs in various languages print out 'hello world' when run -
they illustrate part of the program shell. But suppose you have a line
reading something like 'i\'m burning alive - this is for real' - the
line's obtrusive, carries meaning through the code. I use code for two
things - as a background process/catalyst for the text, and as a
foregrounding to indicate the history and urgency of the text - as well as
its substructure, which has to be overcome - i.e. the formal aspects have
to retreat to the background, to be seen as scaffolding, carrying the
foregrounded message.

/usr/bin/bash as a performative tool    -       Alex Mclean


I'm writing this to share some thoughts with those already initiated with the
bash shell. Those otherwise interested might like to read this
(http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/bash.html) first. If any parts of this
article
are unclear or you have any questions, please email me (cream {AT} slab.org) and
I'll
clarify.

I've probably spent more time at a bash prompt than I have in any other place
apart from bed. It's my primary computer interface; it's part of most of my
daily tasks and rituals. I do use a GUI windowing environment, but still find
myself typing far more than clicking.

So what do I perform with bash? I make music with self-written Perl scripts,
that synchronise, play sounds and control synthesis parameters via a central
server. Some of these scripts are interactive and some aren't, and so a great
deal of the performance is controlled from the command line, starting sets of
scripts with particular parameters and then choosing the right moment to kill
them.

Typing long, textual commands seems like a slow and inexpressive way to make
live music. However I find this much faster than using a mouse, and more
expressive than using a guitar; but then, I'm a fast typist and am not much
good
at playing the guitar. I also know a few handy bash shortcuts...

So lets cut to the meat. Here's how I use the bash prompt.


^n ^p ^b ^f ^a ^e

These are navigation control keys, in fact the first four are simple aliases
for the arrow keys; down, up, left and right respectively. These are keys I
need
all the time but are located far away from the 'home keys'. You only save a
fraction of a second by hitting ^b rather than left-arrow, but in my opinion
shaving all these fractions is what turns you into a bash prompt maestro.


^r

Control and r is perhaps my most used performative expression. It lets you
do a
reverse search through your entire command history. So if I want to find a
command I ran at a gig a couple of weeks or months ago, I can, with a few
key-presses. This is great, because I have no memory of my own.

There's a problem with this; you might accidentally re-run that dodgy 'rm -rf
.' command and delete all your files. You can pop the following HISTIGNORE
environment variable in your .bash_profile to stop this from happening, and
while you're there, why not drop in a HISTSIZE variable to keep your
history for
longer:

HISTIGNORE="rm *"
HISTSIZE="2048"
export HISTIGNORE HISTSIZE


tab completion

Another shell shortcut under-used by many; tab completion! Most know that when
you type the first few characters of a command, file or directory name and
then
press tab, the shell fills in the rest of the for you. But! It doesn't just
apply to filenames... Bash now has 'programmable completion', meaning that it
will now complete hostnames, process names, usernames, etc, etc... Download a
config file from here (http://www.caliban.org/bash/index.shtml#completion) and
weep with joy!


the last bit

Well, those are the most important bash keystrokes I use. When performing I
tend to end up with a lot of processes all over a mess of xterms, all with
various processes running in the background. So I end up using 'ps -wux' and
'kill' a lot to list and kill my processes. People seem to enjoy watching me
scrabble around, flicking through xterms running obtuse homemade curses
interfaces. Hopefully it's not too distracting everyone from the music
itself...

Although it tends to come as default with Linux based systems, 'bash' is by no
means the only Unix shell. For example 'zsh' is well loved among its loyal fan
base. So have a look around, but whatever shell you opt for and whatever Unix
art you are creating, check out the man pages and you might find some
wonderful
shortcuts to command prompt heaven.

Excellent Mez.

Let me add that, like all real philosophers, Derrida sits on a bench, not a
chair. He had a collapsible (deconstructable) one made, as he travels so
much between Paris and the rest of the world. The bench came with pigeon
droppings, a sign of respect, as they mark where the pigeons didn't shit on
his head.

You can also use aliases easily - for example rm -i for rm - which means
you won't accidently erase anything - also mv -i etc. You can set kill -9
= k, which makes it easier to get rid of processes. Use pico -z in order
to temporarily background it. Use pico -w to eliminate wordwrap, etc.

For those who care about such things, here's most of my .profile for unix
