Going off-grid? Think twice before you invest in a battery system. Compressed air energy storage is the sustainable and resilient alternative to batteries, with much longer life expectancy, lower life cycle costs, technical simplicity, and low maintenance. Designing a compressed air energy storage system that combines high efficiency with small storage size is not self-explanatory, but a growing number of researchers show that it can be done.

Just finished Journey. What an amazing game. Had heard so much about it; lovely to finally experience it. And apparently Robin Hunicke worked on it. Met her ages ago and remember finding her hugely inspiring.

Liu invites us to think about this a different way.

Imagine a dark forest at night. It’s deathly quiet. Nothing moves. Nothing stirs. This could lead one to assume that the forest is devoid of life. But of course, it’s not. The dark forest is full of life. It’s quiet because night is when the predators come out. To survive, the animals stay silent.

My takeaway from #NarraScope:

1. Make games about stuff you care about. It will resonate with people.
2. Do your research when depicting trauma and marginalization, especially with #steampunk narratives.
3. Everyone has a story to tell. We'll never have too many games, just like we'll never have too many poems.
4. Open source your writing tools. Someone else might use them.

Did you already see the insanely beautiful Map of the #SolarSystem by Eleanor Lutz? 🌌

She published the #python code and a tutorial on how she made it. ❤️

I recommend this talk – good summary of the modern tech issues

🔥"Stop obsessing over your environmental “sins.” Fight the oil and gas industry instead." vox.com/the-highlight/2019/5/2

Still chipping away... probably will replace the header with a menu of sorts.

Working on project pages atm. Got a runic-like set up from scratch thinking runic is more complicated than I need, turns out it is not.
