Hello internet friends! I am a product designer and game developer who sometimes writes about tech, games, and culture. I love thinking about technology, race, gender and how these things impact the world we live in.

Update: I directly asked if there was something I did and they were just really busy! WHEEEE thanks, social anxiety and shitty gendered socialization that makes women internalize problems

PSA: always ask people if they want feedback – and what kind of feedback they want – before giving it. Giving unsolicited advice can ruin someone's day.

After a good day at work (I'll explain why soon!), I showed Breakup Squad at an event hosted by Frederator at YouTube's NYC space. Players loved it and were making lots of noise. It was great to see the crowds gather.

Then I ran into a friend and hugged some strangers on my way to meet a fellow meow in Queens, watched The Babysitter (so weird), and concluded the night by dancing in my seat to 70s music while eating cheese fries at a gastropub.

Tulane is offering a free guest semester for students of universities in Puerto Rico, USVI and St. Maarten/Martin. They know what it's like to have their campus underwater. tuadmissionjeff.blogspot.com/2

Yesterday was such a fun and weird day. This was a pretty good week.

I'll bet you hadn't heard about this attempted bombing. I'll also bet you know why you haven't heard. theintercept.com/2017/10/11/te

Something I wish more people did at parties: ask if two people you know also know each other. If the answer is no, introduce them.

It's really not that hard to make people feel included.

When you go to an event to be supportive but then also feel socially exhausted

Played DDR, pickled some veggies, made tomorrow's lunch. Solid Monday evening.

Had a lovely time at this year. It was way more low key than when I went in 2015, which was nice.

I got to spend a lot of time with people I like very much, and I met some new cool people as well. People liked Breakup Squad and my panel. I felt inspired to keep working on games.

Thanks for the good times! Until we meet again, LA πŸ’–

Hey , come see me and a few other lovely people talk about non-games things that influence our games in the Democracy Forum at 4pm. It's going to be a grand set of microtalks followed by a panel discussion. Hope to see you there! sched.co/CM7e

Found a moment of silence in the bathroom after hours of being social. 2 days left. 😡
