just thinking about how the following is all pretty much inevitable unless legislation gets ahead of it:
- taxi app companies are gonna move to autonomous vehicles
- those taxis will only respond to hails via their app
- when not in use they'll go hide somewhere and recharge their batteries
- some nonzero percent of them are gonna corrupt their onboard memory and not be able to authenticate their identity the app
- these will be the feral taxis, stealing electricity and driving around empty in neighborhoods they remember

I'm working on a mod for #dwarffortress that adds some limited "co-op mode" support: folks watching my Twitch stream will be able to "possess" a dwarf and take some control of them, see their innermost thoughts and feelings, and decide their role in the fortress.

If that sounds like fun to you, I'm going to be trying it out for the first time on Wednesday, 6.30pm PST! Follow me on Twitch to get a notification: twitch.tv/nornagon

oh btw I quit my job

no drama or anything, I just ... didn't want to do it, and did some math, and decided I could afford not to for a while.

gonna spend some time doing things I actually enjoy. if that turns into an opportunity to get paid for them, cool; if not, back to the tech mines later. :)

pro roguelike trick: if you spend an hour thinking of a good name for your character, they will die instantly

if you name your character some stupid shit like "honk bongledink" that will absolutely be the one you win with, etched into the high score list forever

"woo the internet is dying, now we gotta make a new one just for techies and nerds just like it was in the 90s" is a bad take.

the internet and whatever comes after it needs to be accessible.

"normal" people aren't killing the open web, capitalism is.
