Pinned toot

I’m a self-taught generalist problem solver focused on accumulating resources while I interact with the interconnectivity between all things and search for deeper meaning

I want to hear what others think before I share what’s on my mind, but if I’m disappointed, I speak up, advocating for improvement to quality of life for all members of the working class

I work quickly so that I can get back to forming and strengthening connections through service and conversation

Saluton! My name is Flip, I slap a keyboard until interesting things happen

I am learning Esperanto (for only about a year now), I play and DM tabletop roleplaying games, I'm the good kind of anarchist, I fiddle with old hardware, and I dream of retiring as a cactus farmer

The space between sociopathy and empathy is so weird...

doesn't think about other people
thinks about some other people sometimes
thinks about some other people a lot of the time?
thinks about more than five other people most of the time?

These are all still so bad

My favorite aspect of 2001: A Space Odyssey is the Monoliths which act as catalysts for sea change

There are a few artifacts that I've encountered in my life which have caused me to reevaluate *everything*

What about you?

Television, but internet. What does that look like?

Raya, Clubhouse, Super Follows, Parler... and a lot of Mastodon instances (the ones you hopefully don’t know about because you have good mods on your instance)

The next big thing in consumer technology is cults

Thinking about putting together a play by email game where I have the rules system and make up the more and resolve actions and players just email what they’d like to know and do and I respond and also do a newsletter and wiki...

There’s no such thing as jumping the shark when you’re telling a story about shark jumpers

I want asynchronous massively multiplayer games where you might only make one move a week or maybe you’ll make a hundred moves a day and both options are adequate and enjoyable and contribute to an evolving world

The worst part of fantasy games is when a character levels up, by whatever means, and immediately has access to new abilities

2021 is the year of plotting your revenge

@neauoire I like how my candy crystal rainbow codex is showing up in results now (it's all asemic):

My arc is going from a Troy to an Abed while learning how to use my El Tigre powers for good

I think I’m going to dedicate myself to interactive storytelling. I think that’s who I am. The study of psychology and my craft in software engineering are byproducts... but it’s time to apply myself to something that excites me – telling stories, creating worlds you can participate in, and helping others share their own narratives

I would appreciate suggestions for video games that gave you a feeling of “huh, a game made me feel/think that? pretty neat”

Birds are like 100x smaller than humans... does that mean, for a bird, this is like 100x more snow?

Doing a lot of staring out the window lately

Just got the text that they’re going to be rotating forty minutes power outages while the windchill is -15°F... these past years have been surreal

I’m back to working on generative fiction stuff and I am sooo fed up with English

Plurals, a/an, all those Es that just need to disappear when you’re adding an ing

Just going to do all my work in Esperanto from now on not really but maybe... because using code to bandaid problems in a language is not great
