Snowball (also called a Chaterism): A poem in which each line is a single word, and each successive word is one letter longer. One of the constrained writing techniques utilised by the Oulipo (Workshop of Potential Literature).

Given the mathematical genesis of the Oulipo and the interest in the movement among other programmers, I thought that someone must have created a program to generate these, and I was surprised that I couldn’t find one even after some pretty thorough Googling. So I wrote one myself. The C++ code is here.

It takes input from a text file which contains novels from 
Project Gutenberg, scans for word pairs where the second word is longer by one letter, and builds up a poem using Markov chains.

The poems in this post were all created by the program. They have not been edited.

I have made some major updates to this program, and there is now an executable that you can use to generate poems from your own text.

.YUV format sonification

letsglitchit:

Several people have asked for a .yuv sonification tutorial, so here ya go!
So what the heck IS .yuv? Well it’s sort of like the .raw image format but for video (though you can use still images as well). It’s different though in that it divides your file into 2 color channels and 1 luminance…

"If a child isn’t proficient in reading by 3rd grade, their HS dropout rate is 4x higher. So I’m trying to develop a system to help blind children develop literacy as soon as possible. If you think about it, books for young children are picture-driven, with very few words per page. So it’s tough for blind kids to really participate. So we recommend pre-reading activities to build the scene before the story begins. If you’re reading Goldilocks for example, take the child to the kitchen first, allow them to feel where the scene is going to be set. If the story is about a lamb, get a fluffy towel, so they can feel what a lamb looks like. It’s all about making the reading process as experiential as possible, so blind children can place themselves in the story without the aid of pictures."
