"It's been too long since I've played a game with this much soul in it" "A cyberpunk masterpiece" --Steam reviewers

I invented a new unit of time, called an 'hourse'...

No, it's not a typo. Why do you ask?

🤦‍♂️

There's a plan to suit everyone's e-book collection at Libreture.

From FREE 500MB to Totally Unlimited for £15.99 a month... which will be essential for comic aficionados, when PDF & CBZ support launches soon.

You still have 6 Days, 21 Hourse, 12 Minutes and 20 Seconds to buy The Anarchist Bundle from Storybundle.

A few Libreture readers have grabbed it already, and I have my eye on it too.

The latest Storybundle is The Darker Realms Fantasy Bundle.

Curated by Allyson Longueira, this bundle of 10 e-books explores the darkness at the heart of the unknown.

DRM-free and in multiple formats for all your reading devices.

My workplace is running a “mindfulness workshop” to help us deal with “stress and anxiety” and to help “improve productivity”, and achieve “a good work-life balance”.

I really really want to reply and ask if the workshop deals with how everyone is a casual/contract employee with constantly increasing workload and performance metrics and constant demands to be engaged 24/7 in an education sector increasingly under attack, but I look like a dickhead when I’m mad.

Apple Social Ranking

We're in something worse than 1984 quite soon. Surveillance and control apparatus are already lightyears in advance of any Stasi wet dream. Now it's just cooking frog in pot.

Social ranking / ubiquitous surveillance to filter the middle / upperclass such that only lapdogs get mortgages, afford private schools, 6-figure jobs, will ensure this.

It's not doomsaying, it's just journalism; something wiped out by capitalist capture of info dissemination

You find their books on beam-shop.de
Really nice shop selling only soft-drm books (watermarked) what I am totally fine with.

I love that heyne (one of the big Publishers in germany) sells most of their Sci-fi books drm-free. As long as you don't buy them on amazon.
