@danbruno Thanks! I do *so* much writing for school these days that I'm not sure how often an extra-curricular like this will dribble out...
I started to write this New Year's reflection as a FB post and realized I kind of missed having a blog but also didn't want to bother setting up a whole new thing so I slapped it on Medium. Starts off being about Louis CK but I promise it's not a hot take. https://medium.com/@sjml/being-done-bb863f6f4c8a
First post-semester "idea I had but didn't let myself make until I was done" that I execute: a website that randomly plays the Annihilation sound at you. Leave the tab open and terrorize yourself. https://shaneliesegang.com/annihilate/
@caraellison garbage, it sounds like
@caraellison I don't know if you remember... when I saw you at Jenn's post-GDC gathering and you said you really liked something I had written and that was SO significant to me because of how much of a badass you are and how much I admire your work. You're a hero.
uspol, election culture
@darius and then there’s like the next degree of privilege-apathy where people take the performative middle ground of “ill still be your friend no matter who you vote for because that’s being an adult”
My own network still contains a lot of this, which speaks to my lack of curation...
@jess yeah my first instinct is assuming incompetence but in the year 2018 everyone knows that comment systems are bad and every metric will be gamed so there’s really no excuse.
@caraellison I could imagine a useful standard for, at least, the "ethically produced" part. Hard to certify, though.... :-/
@caraellison I can't tell if you are supporting or mocking, but I'll assume support since you don't strike me as the sort who would tag me in just to mock...
