Why does that make me think of the movie Elysium?

The maths of randomness

I really like the section about Bayesians vs frequentists. I wish there was more on this topic.

Processing – p5.js – Audio

Finally, I have some free time to try some more programming in Processing.

I had a look at the p5.sound library. As far as I understood, p5.sound builds on W3C spec Web Audio. I’m not very good with audio. Haven’t tried it since my Basic days. I’m trying to figure out, how to create simple beeps. All samples I have found so far include loading some mp3 file. But is there any way to beep the speaker or create a similar sound?

Let’s see if I can figure this out without having to work through the entire Web Audio spec.
