RIP Kathleen Booth, who Invented the first assembly language.
She was 100 years old, and I have not seen anything in the news about it, unfortunately. With her husband, they formed the smallest computer group in the UK. Respect!
#OSArch has a new banner image! The image is courtesy of a collaboration between @AetherEng & @Opening_Design. You can read all about the project and how they brought the strengths of #BlenderBIM & #Revit together

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?
Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩
I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

Yes. Go #OpenBIM. To celebrate the work done on IFC4.3 I'll be promoting awareness of the lesser-known capabilities of #IFC. To begin with: IFC supports #PhysicallyBasedRendering, texture maps, and materials for archviz. Lighting models are compatible with glTF & X3D. Have you seen signage in BIM models when they should've used textures? Can you round-trip archviz with the design team? Yes you can!
For international I Love Free Software day we've made poster showing some of our friends. #ilovefs

"Last year, in cooperation with many of my friends on a private social network, I took an idea from neighborhood organizations here in Chicago and started a small online-only mutual aid fund."
