10 (h2 [Hacking the Wavedrum])
11
12 (p [I wrote a ,(ref "/tags/wavedrum.html" "series of blog posts") in
13 which I document my efforts to understand and possibly manipulate
14 the firmware of Korg’s Wavedrum. The PCB is easily accessible
15 and exposes big connector pads as well as a microSD card—an
16 invitation to play with the hardware.])
17
18 (p [The ,(ref "/wavedrum/index.html" "project page") is the best
19 place to get an overview and to see the current status. It
20 contains links to the sources of any software artifacts I create
21 in the process.])

24 (h2 [GNU Guix])
25
26 (p [,(ref "http://gnu.org/s/guix" "GNU Guix") is a novel package
27 manager for ,(ref "http://gnu.org" "GNU systems"). In Guix a
28 package is treated as a pure function whose output is fully
29 described by its inputs (its dependencies). I’m packaging lots
30 of bioinformatics software when I’m in the office and audio tools
31 when I’m off work.])
32
33 (p [The Guix package manager forms the foundation of the Guix System
34 Distribution (short: GuixSD), which is the GNU system I use on my
35 laptop.])

38 (h2 [Libertree])
39
40 (p [,(ref "http://libertree.org" "Libertree") is a collection of
41 software to build social networks. The core components include a
42 web frontend application and an XMPP backend component that will
43 work with any regular XMPP server.])

47 (p [I was one of two core developers for about three years and hosted
48 the second public node. The network isn’t very active and
49 development has slowed considerably. I’m no longer interested in
50 traditional www-based social networking applications and am
51 thinking about using ,(ref "http://gnunet.org" "Gnunet") for
52 pseudonymous social networking purposes.])

55 (h2 [LV2 plugins])
56
57 (p [I have ported two VST instruments to the LV2 plugin framework,
58 because I missed them after my move to GNU/Linux.])
