Was inspired by http://www.exocomics.com/500
Really fantastic mix of game and comic. Thought of all the cool variations one could make if mixing it with some animation, some Infinity Engine style dialog systems, and a mix of other things.
Finally a few days ago stumbled on a seed for a story to present with such a game. Now totally inspired, and I've got a vacation coming up :D
@noelle @jk Yeah, leafo (Itch's creator AFIK) actually became a target of right-wing attack-bombardment, along with Itch itself, after responding to Steam's official stance in June that "we won't curate anything". And Leafo did not, has not caved on that.
If you dislike toxic gamer culture, (and toxic capitalist culture, for that matter) as it stands, Itch.io is one of the very few forces directly combating it.
@fsmk_org Hacktivist Camp starts tomorrow.
We have 75 participants, 5 camp co-ordinators , and about 10 speakers from FSMK, FSFTN and FSHM :)

gradually realizing that Rust is not about programming computers differently, it's about programming developers' brains differently, and I'm super into it
"Choosing proprietary tools and services for your #FreeSoftware project ultimately sends a message to downstream developers and users of your project that freedom of all users—developers included—is not a priority." - @mattl
Rust is like many of the choices that life presents to us, a complex problem with many right answers. rustc checks over 700 different types of errors, it means guaranteed stability with less / no restarts & runtime exceptions.
If you are a small team, your maintenance overhead would ideally be close to none but would you put the pain of learning Rust for these gains?
If you did, was Rust (or similar choices) worth it?
And now "Producing OSS" is discussing how software patents has made GPU vendors hesitent to work with us to help make free software use them to their full potential.
Certainly not doing so limits their market, but they're all afraid of being sued by other GPU vendors for patent infringement, so they don't document their hardware well enough to be implemented by free software. Instead they'll only release proprietary drivers.
Commit to making decisions, become biased for action.
Decisions are progress. Each one is a step forward. You can’t build on top of “I’ll decide later,” but you can build on top of “Done.”
You have the most information when you’re doing something, not before you’ve done it. Most important decisions are easily reversible anyway, if circumstances change, your decisions can change.
Don't get stuck waiting for the perfect answer. You’re as likely to make a great call today as you are tomorrow.
its been a while since I did this reminder. but if you use

Fuck Medium Show more
There are lots of articles that are probably worth reading, but out of reach because of Medium's paywall.
Yes, I can pierce it, but if Medium doesn't have you on the payroll as a staff writer, you shouldn't be writing for them and helping to make Ev Williams richer. That asshole is rich enough already.
@demonshreder self-organization doesn't mean there shouldn't be any process or discipline. We should be able to define a process and discipline for ourselves and our actions be accountable to each other.
If we proceed without such guidelines as a group of loosely bound individuals we all feel separated and our actions will not be in harmony with each other.
A collective cannot last long or move fwd w/o paying attention to individual needs. We need to balance between individual & collective.
