I mean, people really do believe the bogus idea of using only 10% of our brains. It’s a very commonly repeated myth.

It’s simply not plausible for the human mind to function that way, and that they offered it up as the reasoning was just absurd considering the much more plausible and realistic, “We have no...

So I watched Limitless last night.
While it had an interesting premise and some pretty good cinematography and visual effects, the writing was mediocre. The protagonist is carried solely on the charm of the actor, rather than any sort of appeal innate to the character. In fact, there didn’t seem to be much innate to any of the characters except positions on two sliding scales of greed and violence. Also, there was the...

I’m willing to throw somethin’ out there on the off chance it sticks!

I really like these people. They spend a lot of time and effort dissecting games and their design. It’s refreshing and educational. This particular episode is about what happens with games which put forth a particular point of view, and the pitfalls and dangers associated therewith.

marelo: Star Wars: The Old Republic. Imagine WoW gameplay and social cooperation, honed to a razor’s edge, married to Bioware’s Mass Effect style storytelling, set thousands of years before a Skywalker threw a tantrum.

It boggles my mind it came out in 1998 — prescient about so many big ideas and small details. I’ve seen it 3 times and still have many questions. But: it gets to your question. :) I will watch the heck out of it, then!

Letter to My Future Crush
Dear Crush, When I crush on someone, the best way to think of it is like wanting to read a book really bad. For whatever reason, I’m attracted to you. It could be your sense of humor, taste in media, physical appearance, philosophy, whatever. All or none of the above. The point is, you have my attention. All I’m after at this point is for our lives to intersect. Whether that...
