LB: On my other account, @ImprobableIsland, I'm posting a six-word horror story every day, in honour of Spooky Season. I'll boost 'em here too. There's one for every day of October. Some are good, but there's 31 so they can't all be winners.

oh dang oh dang! my cyberdeck writeup got featured on hackaday.com courtesy of @mavica
been a big fan of that site for years!
Here's a thing I didn't see until today (because I wasn't on Twitter when it was posted).
It's a thread about the culture building mechanics in a game that I wrote. I'm still very happy with how those mechanics work to create a complex culture in play.
us politics, harrowing, bad, facebook, social media, it's no longer just "the algorithm"
2 days ago: audio is leaked saying that zuckerberg is extremely mad over the democratic candidates trying to push for breaking up facebook
6 hours ago: facebook quietly changes policy about false and misleading info, saying political ads are no longer fact-checked. at about the same time Trump begins to put up false and misleading ads
it's no longer "the algorithm", social media is being intentionally manipulated to push for political situations where the rich stay in power
My friend's restaurant is closing and I need to find space for two of my pinball machines right quick so I'm running around with my hair on fire trying to make room :(
Also my friend's restaurant was really good you guys, Improbable Island helped them out during their kickstarter and there's a meatball sandwich named after the Island called The Sneaky Lion. It looks really innocent but then the heat builds up until you're on fire. I will miss this sandwich!
