This is a good piece that really bums me out because the people who make these games either don't think about what they're doing, or don't care.

Yesterday I shipped a thing in beta, making it available to the people on the waiting list, and some of them have made accounts and started using it! I've done this a bunch of times now but it never fails to make me feel good to see real live people using something I've made.

Just read a thing about kids' youtube videos on The Atlantic and now I get that "yes papa" meme you young folks have been using. Geez I feel old

The Ghostbusters are COPS. Do NOT call them.

Everyone deserves food, water, healthcare, shelter, all the things they need to survive and have a basic enjoyment of life. They deserve those things regardless of whether others perceive their contributions to society as worthy of sustaining the resources they consume. They deserve those things regardless of any moral judgments others put on them. Even people you hate, even people who have done very bad things. No exceptions.

Remember folks, there are more of us than there are of them. We can do this! 👍​

Boss makes a dollar
I make a fist
Boss doesn't understand why historically high levels of wage inequality are such a problem
But is about to get the gist

Boss makes a dollar
I make a dime
That was a poem
From a simpler time

Boss makes three dollars
The economy's lit
I make a penny
And I haven't got shit

the hardest part of open source isn’t creating software, it’s stewarding a community and keeping it healthy

Hot take: Whenever Men™️ feel the need to subdivide #feminism into waves, it is to say that the last wave was okay and reasonable, however this new wave is absolutely ludicrous, through the roof bonkers and an outrageous affront to humanity.
I expect that to continue for all upcoming waves.

There's no money to be made in stitching together parts from purloined bodies and using a tower-based lightning system to imbue them with life. The real money is in catering to the hobbyists who want to make their own monsters and selling them starter kits, supplies and how to guides.

More than half will never even make a single monster. They'll spend money just so they can imagine themselves as the sort of person who stitches together and animates monsters.

In this new house we've moved to, my bedroom is much closer to the road and the traffic noise is a lot louder. I'm a really light sleeper, and for the first few nights I stayed awake for ages from the rumble of cars. There's no much I can do about it, so I just hoped I'd "get used to it".

And two weeks later, I have! It still wakes me in the morning sometimes, but doesn't keep me awake at night. Brains are weird and adaptable.

So I have my own personal pub. I work with many organizations. Sometimes I work on projects with many people in more than one organization. The work coordination will need to span all of those instances. I will always be working from my own pub, and everybody else involved will either be working from their personal pub or an actor in multi-user pub.
