Well, crap. There goes the Masquerade.
Fascinating. How long before someone claims he can use this technology to detect nervous people in airports?

This is nice and all, but I still want a tabletop RPG.

If you can just travel and explore then it would be cool. I'm definitely not interested in the whole "coordinate your dungeon raid with thirty other people at a time" aspect of MMOs today.

For those interested, Rich Burlew is doing a Kickstarter for Order of the Stick book reprints that's making tons of money. They passed their goal in the first day and there's still two weeks left to go.

Help us reprint the out-of-print The Order of the Stick books to reach new readers (and let existing fans complete their collections).

Pathfinder Online coming soon(ish). Why do I get the feeling that a Pathfinder MMO will work better than D&D online?

Free Portal. In case there's someone out there that actually hasn't played it yet.

No idea about system. In-house probably. If there's any justice in the world, conflict resolution will be based on whichever player has the coolest clothes.

Kickstarter for $99 open source game console. So far it's made close to 4 million dollars in three days. With all the layoffs and closures in the gaming industry lately, a cheap dev system for out of work game designers could lead to some interesting things.

It's only a matter of time until your email gets hacked. Don't believe me? Just read this harrowing cautionary tale. When [my wife] came back to her desk, half an hour later, she couldn’t log into Gmail at all. By that time, I was up and looking at e‑mail, and we both quickly saw what the real problem was.

Huh. I guess if I'd actually followed the link I'd have seen that the URL was wrong. Stupid internet.
