fake or far away sample

This is one piece of my dissertation, done in collaboration with Matias Vilaplana Stark. It started out as just an attempt to make the news a relaxing and community-oriented experience, but after adding the chat, we realized it could be something extra.

So I added a stock market, which turns typed messages into stocks, which can then be invested in. If a stock word disappears entirely, that word can no longer be typed. It's a very literal experiment in the evolution of language through communal censorship.

It uses Vue 2, ojack's hydra-synth.js, Tone.js, and socket.io. The initial installation version used Max/MSP and Xebra.js for audio, but this changed for the web-only version.
