I learned once at the end of my teenage years that dismissing sincerity with sarcasm – thinking that I was too cool for it – was a foolish strategy. Over time, lessons fade.

When I started Nintendo's 2015 E3 presentation, I saw whimsy run amok paired with oddly stilted line deliveries. It only reaffirmed that Nintendo could no longer compete in a serious games market. I closed it immediately.

Only now, with a lens I rediscovered too late, do I understand. Sure, there's height-of-the-Wii's-popularity levels of whimsy. But each person also delivers the catchphrase that Nintendo's fans have chosen for them. It wasn't poor delivery. It was a hold for applause. It was Nintendo speaking directly to their closest fans: those watching their E3 event.

Nintendo under Iwata embraced whimsy as ever, but Iwata pushed for games to be inclusive and for video games as a medium to advance in society. Whether his efforts in the short term were overambitious, the industry as a whole will be reaping the fruits of his labours.

#RIPIwata. I send my thanks directly to you.

Wow. A tech "tip" that I didn't know and seems super useful. Weird.

Yes, I know.

* Your service allows people to put their own content up
* People are creating bad content
* You segregate user content on a separate domain to mitigate this
* That user content domain gets "dirty"

I understand the technical reasons why that entire domain can get blocked. For many services, that's life and that's okay. (Not really, but it's not that important.)

And yet, when this happens when I try to download a file from my +Google Drive, it still makes me uncomfortable to suggested my parents use it. They'll have no idea what's going on. And this desensitizes them to full-page phishing ads with bright colours telling them that their registry is corrupted by a virus only Wincleaner 2000 can remove.

Tiny shop with tasty food. Brown rice option with no extra charge. Curries less viscous and sticky than other Thai places. Just plain old good eats at a totally reasonable price.
