I enjoyed this.
The Huffington Post ran an article shortly after The Force Awakens was released, criticizing the film for an "unforgivable" amount of plot holes. This provoked some fans, including Matty Granger, who took to Facebook to debunk all of the so called inconsistencies in the movie. While there were some moments in the film that seemed a stretch of the imagination, Matty made some great points to explain how many of the plot points are actually pretty

Overheard: "Wow - the war on crypto is heating up - just in time to replace the waning support for the war on drugs."

Hey +Louis Wasserman - this was what I was referring to. It's super basic at the start, so bear with it.
 
I made a graph isomorphism game! Here's how to play it.

Because you should always take your Linkin Park with some Robert Miles.

Aside from the cognitive dissonance of these two sources being mixed, I'm just amazed at how well they actually do mix.

This is one of the most heartwarming talks I've seen in quite a while, especially since I know so many people who could use the emotional help inherent in the techniques, and I know quite a few concussion sufferers (the origin of Jane's looking at matching games with health). Gamifying different things can be good... but games, in themselves, can be good.

Anyway - for your enjoyment and/or edification.

I live in a weird place in life where I see a lot of undiagnosed kids on the spectrum (hard to not see it when you know it, and not that diagnosis is the magic wand) where parents miss the realities that traditional motivators don't work with the kids, and that fixations are big, and they simply see kids who are "addicted" to video games, without considering the underlying causes, never realizing those kids will fixate on something else instead.  

In that, now most people see this and fear becoming like that.  Demonization of the object of the fixation.  

Yet at the same time, i look at the controlled environment as a place where kids with social problems can find alternative ways to interact, places where their quirks are downplayed and what they have to say comes out.  

Granted we wont get into my son's hilarious adventures at taking everything literally and believing that what people are saying they are doing is actually what they are doing...

Apparently the Bernie Sanders campaign organization doesn't "get" the modern information world. What on earth were they thinking.
In today's political DMCA spat, $10 sticker sales are pitted against fair use.

Story

paucis superbis ebriis
Introduction
I'm a nerd, gamer, programmer, perpetual student (in the learning sense, not the schooling sense).  I'm an amateur economics geek, sometime agile consultant, sometimes technical consultant. 

Politically I'm an anarchist (the polite, collaborative kind, not the molotov-cocktail throwing caricature), canadian by birth, terran by choice, polyamorous by heart, a big fan of the human species. 

Non-religious, but not antagonistic towards those whose religiosity doesn't attempt to impose itself on others. I was once also a religious scholar, but while the memories are there, the inclination is behind me.  

I'm a huge fan of philosophical inquiry.  I try to test my ideas constantly, and my best friends challenge me in this way.  I'm also a huge fan of distilled spirits, both the consumption and production thereof, aesthetically and technically.  These are not related, though some of the best conversation can be had over a bourbon in a drinking jacket, with good friends, on thoughtful topics. 

... and occasionally I can even be made to shut up.  But you might have to ask.

Had work done a few months ago, my second piece. The staff were great. Very casual and approachable, while being capable and excellent. Good line work and shading, and pretty enthusiastic to explore a concept.
