@flame In that case I'll be sure to give it a try! 😊
@flame Do you mean the alternate reality game?
@rek I'm real interested in hearing how this tastes!
Oh and it has a really cool story
More concisely, Mu Cartographer is like operating a flying saucer to hunt for treasure through the cover art of Radiohead's Kid A. Somebody gamified perlin noise, and I like it
Hey folks, a lot of games on itch.io are free this weekend to help the folks having trouble with social distancing figure out their whole, you know, *waves hands in the air*
I just played a bunch of Mu Cartographer, and anyone here who's a fan of Hundred Rabbits' games will probably like Mu Cartographer. It's a beautiful, very alien game with no tutorial, almost zero handholding. It kind of celebrates the sensation of being lost— but with patience, it's beatable. 😊🕹️
@neauoire Thanks for checking in 😅
I dunno, a lot of big things beyond our control are draining me.
And I'm wishing I'd spent my available energy more wisely before we all got locked up for each others' health and safety?
And when I look at the things I can control, it's like, dirty dishes, the rate I eat snacks before scampering to the grocery store, and which angry quips to retweet.
I've felt a need to refocus, before any of these ordinances took place 🤦♂️
I wonder what Good Timeline Rezmason is up to.
He hasn't invented the transdimensional collect call yet, I know that. Or maybe he's avoiding me.
Or maybe the Good Timeline diverged from ours so long ago that I don't exist there. Periodic tables, double rainbows and forgotten 90s Mac software might be hunted down and taxidermied by an entirely different person, or delegated to several different other people, in a Rezmasonless domain.
covid-adjacent, uspol, longish
after this is all over, be sure to remind people, as often as they'll allow you to get away with it, that:
telecoms did not need data caps, had plenty of capacity to donate to low-income folks, and were never in danger of going bankrupt because of the lack of data caps or the additional usage
folks who work on computers all day can do that wherever computers are; most tech offices are merely trophies to show off to other tech offices.
the government wasn't concerned with helping people, it was concerned with helping business. it was people who were helping people and often the government merely got in the way of that.
trillions of dollars was found to allocate as soon as they wanted to; every time anyone asks how anything will be funded it's merely to shut down the conversation.
keep a running list of your favorite facts and get them in front of as many folk as you can, as often as you can, and maybe, just maybe, we can get more folks on board for change
i just got laid off from my service job in seattle

@flip nah, it's
caaaaaaaaasual determinism 😎✨
I don't know about you folks, but the covid 19 outbreak has kind of thrown a wrench in my social plans generally. It's nothing personal!
Meanwhile, we can at least use the #BayArea hashtag to keep relevant discussion going, and who knows? Maybe soon we'll have a chance to hang out in person. 🌉
“Prodigal tech bro stories skip straight from the past, when they were part of something that—surprise!—turned out to be bad, to the present, where they are now a moral authority on how to do good, but without the transitional moments of revelation and remorse”
We're in a weird situation atm. We have to make an exit out of the country in May, so we can return and leave the country in June with our boat. At first, we were aiming for making a quick exit to South Korea, but if we do that we won't be allowed back in :/ :/ :/. With cases of COVID-19 rising everywhere, we're not sure where to go.
