On experience vs sharing someone else's good advice.
In 2009, when I was running my own indie game development business full-time, I thought I would invest in my own education and paid for the premium subscription

On part-time indies who somehow make and play.
Like many indie game developers, I have a day job. It pays the bills, but in exchange it asks me to dedicate a significant portion of my time to it during a

Instead of sleeping at a decent hour, I decided to spend some time messing with ncurses to create a world.

On privilege and the obligation to do more than merely not be a jerk.
I'm a white, straight, cisgender man. But I didn't used to be. In the past, I was just me. A unique individual human being just living his life like everyone

I never thought too much about the commit messages I write. There's the obvious idea of writing clear messages, much like writing a good headline for a blog

On how tolerant many White Americans are of police executions. #BLM  
One of the things we're taught to believe as American citizens is that we cherish our freedoms and our rights. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

On how my current #gamedev   project is so late.

Male
As a software developer, I spend a lot of time sitting in front of the computer, and while I try to remember to get up and stretch, sometimes my hips start feeling tight along with my shoulder on my mousing arm. If it gets really bad, walking becomes difficult, and my back starts to get tight as my body tries to compensate. Twice I've gone in to East Village Spa due to such tightness and each time I came out feeling much, much better.
