To Uncover a Deepfake Video Call, Ask the Caller to Turn Sideways

quote [ There is an interesting vulnerability in video deepfakes that, to date, has been generally overlooked by the security research community, perhaps because 'live', real-time deepfakes in video calls have not been a major cause for concern until very recently. ]

I love how they didn't choose a clickbait title.

Joint effort of several European outlets. Nothing surpising on those parties, mind.

This compares the maintenance of BBSes with criticism of current platforms.

How far can you go by train in 5h?

quote [ This map shows you how far you can travel from each station in Europe in less than 5 hours. ]

fun way to spend the afternoon. Note that this keeps loading data for each station.

‘This music was for us and by us, and that was very powerful’

quote [ “I always disliked the term Asian underground,” Sawhney says. “The whole idea of the movement was that cultural change could occur and that Asians would feel they have a relevance and identity within the wider culture […].“ ]

Right. The Outcaste samplers were gold though.

The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa is a free-form 2D brawler with a unique sense of melancholy

quote [ As it happens, the story behind the game is as unusual as the game itself. It’s not every day that you come across a solo Russian developer who enlists his dad to help realize an uncompromising, authentic vision.
It’s a game where you can press up to sit on a bench or press down to rest your hands on a balcony for no other reason than to contemplate time passing by. ]

Interesting slice-of-life game featuring elegant console brawls.

Article is from 2019, they're working on an hardboiled Yakuza drama currently. The article notes his father doing animations – the team page mentions the software used: it's Graphics Gale.
