Harry's Twenty Palaces series did really cool violence to the urban fantasy genre, and didn't succeed like it should have. Please support his further efforts.
 
I announced this last week, but I think I did a really terrible job of it. Let me try again: One of the stretch goals for the Kickstarter I ran last fall was a short fiction collection that would include a new Twenty Palaces short story. We hit that goal…

Signal boost since I originally posted at about the worst possible time. Signal interest on the original or here.
 
I'm considering creating a private Hearthstone community for friends and gaming contacts if there is enough interest to sustain traffic. If you'd be interested, +1 or comment.

You're doing much better than me. My record right now is 2wins to 1loss. I don't want to keep going, because I don't want to lose the first arena deck I've ever won with. Lol

Fortunately, I did not run into this too many times.

I will also add that a review copy does not entitle you to a good review, either, merely an honest and fair one.
 
My follow up to yesterdays blog. I hope you enjoy it.
Yesterday I wrote a blog called “Learning To Work With A Reviewer” and some of the responses I have seen in various groups are astounding ...

I'm looking to add a couple of titles to my comics pull list. What series that are less than 6 issues into their run are you really grooving on right now?

I have skin in this, so grain of salt, but I agree totally with what Jonathan says.
 
Alongside the bridging efforts of people like +Emily Care Boss, one might arguably trace the beginning of the recent new wave of experimental and experiential games to +Seth Ben-Ezra's A Flower for Mara. I can only hope someone writes a game this beautiful for me after I'm gone. It's an important work, and Seth is kindly making the PDF version temporarily available for free. If you have any interest in games as meaningful and significant experiences, I encourage you to check it out.

Opinions on the minimum viable size for a community to be worthwhile?

So long as everybody in it is named either Gerald or Josh, it can be any size.

One last kick at this can before letting it die. Feel free to let me know here or on the original post.

I have a friend who used to only play Arena. But the competitive urge is too strong, now he says if there'd been ranked arena that's all he'd play, heh.

This is…surprisingly attractive.

On a whim, I picked up Nate Silver's book on predictions yesterday and started reading it. I'm not even a hundred pages in yet, but I'm really enjoying it.

Of course it plays to several of my biases such as data-based analysis and preferring Hedgehog personalities to Fox. So far he's on very safe ground, too (mostly politics with some economics with the benefit of hindsight) and we'll see how it holds up once he wanders further afield.

EDIT: of course I have gotten Foxes and Hedgehogs backward here. I leans heavily toward the Fox (that is, preferring to view the complexity and multiple angles on a problem).

I read a neat article in an actuarial magazine about cognitive biases. It was about human beings' fondness for stories, and the gist of it was that when we construct a story that appeals to us to explain events, it takes on the ring of truth. For this reason subject matter experts are often worse at predicting future events than lay people because the stories that appeal to them are more abstruse whereas a lay person will pick a simpler outcome.

Of course, that very story appeals to me, and so should be viewed with much suspicion.

The food can be a little greasy at times, but no worse than a typical Chinese restaurant, and the flavour and texture are exceptional. I especially recommend the stir-fry vegetables, beef & broccoli and the orange beef. My favourite Cantonese restaurant and it's within walking distance for me!
