private

I keep a private digital diary that I update a few times during the day. Once every day, a cloud worker feeds yesterday’s note to Stable Diffusion to generate a series of frames published at kamangir.net/private. Additionally, an animated gif is published at kamangir.net/private/?gif=1. Here is an example from 2022-10-11. Click on the frame to see the animated gif version.


Since I remember, I have always kept a diary of some form & frequency. My diary is where I go when I need to make a decision. The act of writing about my experience helps me make sense of the world.

I blogged for about ten years in English and Persian. Blogging was an extension of the diary for me, and there was always crosstalk: many blog posts started as a note in my diary, and I wrote in my diary about the experience of blogging.

Private was not a planned piece of work. It happened organically a few weeks after I moved my diary from pen and paper to the cloud. Private is still evolving, and I am evolving with it.
