      The Context -

      I found a script that did something close to what I wanted to do. So I decided to ask ChatGPT to modify the code to add the features that I wanted. This was an arduous 24-hour process.

      However, in the course of that, a new idea started in my head. I want to use Github's Commits interface as the stage to perform the story of those 24 hours.


      1. You can read the main chapter by expanding the <figure data-orig-height="10" data-orig-width="20"></figure>button.

      2. The code is used as both a setting for the story as well as code as illustration. You can see the code and comments by click on the button that looks like this <figure data-orig-height="10" data-orig-width="20"></figure>

      Additional Notes

      I added * Hypothesis' Via as the narrator * Github's different features for branching and commenting as the narrative spine

      <small>The code conflicts in each new revision, the way the code is presented and the comments are all elements of the story.</small> <small>The split view might be better to view the code with to compare from one version to another</small>

    1. Scenario

      Inshot Storytelling app, Video Editor & Video Maker InShot has a lot of photo and video editing features in one. There is a small learning curve. Many girls on the field have creatively combined photo and video content, applied effects and enhancements to specific sections and added transitions too. Harnessing the capabilities of InShot for storytelling has immense possibilities. It could potentially lead to a creators movement where people share details about their lives through videos and narration. It also could be used for product stories and marketing. InShot app runs on a phone and ASPi is used as a repository and exchange node - during COVID lockdown, a server online is also used so physical movement is reduced.

      Syncthing. A continuous file synchronization program Ever thought of connotations of sharing in today’s world. Well, Syncthing allows us to securely backup data without the need to trust a third-party cloud provider. Sharing and syncing files between devices on a local network or over the internet is made easier through Syncthing. This could help in fostering community archives as access to files over multiple devices can be made effortless. In localised sense, people can also look up resources or their queries and find answers with their peers.

    2. Scenario 1

      Kolibri The offline app for universal education Kolibri makes high quality education technology available in low-resource communities such as rural schools, refugee camps, orphanages, non-formal school systems, and prison systems. While the internet has thoroughly transformed the availability of educational content for much of the world, many people still live in places where online access is poor or even nonexistent. Kolibri is a great solution for these communities. It's an app that creates an offline server to deliver high-quality educational resources to learners. What makes Kolibri unique is that it offers a way to bring different content sources offline into a central repository in a structured way. Beyond that, it brings in a host of tools to help align the content with national and local curricular standards, and on the student side it offers a self-paced personalized learning experience with support tools for teachers to track student progress. Kolibri can be envisioned also for local teaching, DIY courses, self initiated inquiries, equal opportunities for 21st century skills etc.

    1. Moreover, the villagers speak of the Bathery as having apparently housed a cow, a sheep, hens and other animals during the “times” — my annotating mind is now linking this to the Noah’s arc!

      Very interesting restoration ideas
