met a very nice japanese owner of a manga cafe, he was very surprised polish people play mahjong, hah

seeing another dev i really like, Ed Key (of Proteus fame) mostly posting videos from Cumbrian wilderness nowadays makes me think that pivoting from games to nature is a natural progression

Michel Ancel stepping away from game development is a sad news as his works were huge part of my childhood

He's involved in wildlife sanctuary project now though, so it's kind of a step up, right?

Student of mine is conducting a survey on the barriers to uptake of alternative social media platforms. Your input would be much appreciated. Please boost.

I'm writing a technical book for and I Am aiming to make it as close to a holy text as possible. All you could ever need for reference, and many games that are built from scratch. A chapter on history of fantasy consoles and a comprehensive, robust series of modules that can be used in any project. I've been at it for a year but its in so many pieces that I need to find a platform or style to begin compiling it all.

What should I write it in?

Fine folks of the 'verse, what utensil do you prefer to use in your sketchbook/(bullet) journal. What is your favorite paper (weight, press, finish etc) to utilize with that utensil?

If you could choose a one-size-fits-all paper, could you choose?

Boosts greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Update #1!

The survey has already reached 100 responses after one day. Big thanks to everyone involved, I'm delighted to see input from such diverse group of respondents.

The survey remains open as far as the answers flow in steadily. I hope to release a report once the work is done

Hey Fedifriends! :tealheart:

I'm running a short research survey on Mastodon usage for a graduation paper on alternative social networks. Your input will hopefully help me introduce new concepts to media studies in Poland.

Please fill this survey and share with your friends, especially if you know some scholars involved in this topic!

Are there any Fediverse instances out there for academics?

I have a friend who is a PhD candidate in experimental psychology. She's thinking about joining Twitter but I'd much rather invite her to the Fediverse.

Recommendations and boosts are welcome.
