And it goes in the to-watch list.

Favourite Pixar movie: still The Incredibles.
 
My first video in, well, like, forever.
It's about #Sense8.

Tokens in Hangouts
Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I couldn't find it.

I'm thinking about trying FATE hangout. 
I have ideas how to handle aspects (Draw app and/or FATE Roller) and how to show maps (Manycam).
What I've got no idea for so far - besides taking notes - is how to quickly use FATE tokens so that people can actually see what's going on with them.

Any suggestions?

Bonus question: Same for on-screen handling of stress tracks.

Thanks!

I did this simple app to show aspects in my games. It works fine for me.

We're doing it again - the first Geekend Hangout in ages.
This is where you can watch.
Want to participate? Write to me directly.
 
"Zoom and enhance." "Scan for alien life forms." "Let's overload this sentient computer by doing illogical things."
From crime shows to SF, there's a lot of tech tropes around that just don't make any sense. And we'll discuss them all! (Or as many as we can in about an hour.)
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Jens “Mr. Grok'n'Roll” Reineking. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

My message to past would be:
Do more. Worry less.
Keep in touch with friends and family.
Believe you're worthy of love.

Some personal experience
The meaning bit of business is what really struck a cord with me. Although I've had a lot of opportunities to work to my strengths, ultimately I grew dissatisfied with the work I was doing.
And as far as I can figure till now, it is because in the end, I found the work - or rather the services and goods it helped to produced - personally meaningless. They might provide meaning for others, but not for me.

Individual expressions of universal needs
Meaning is a highly individual thing in my experience. And the same goes for the expression of the other universal(?) needs of survival and community.
Twitter or YouTube can be as much an expression of community as friend or family.
For some, a car may represent unnecessary luxury (like for me during my city dweller times), for others its an essential, indispensable way of earning enough money to survive and to care for their families.

The dose makes the poison.
And - as is so very often the case - the dose makes the poison. Me watching a TV series can be a healthy way of recharging and connecting (with other fans). Or it can be an unhealthy obsession.

I fear, I might start to ramble, so I'll stop here. Thanks for thought-provoking video, +The School of Life.
