I realized many of my favorite games are basically about managing technical debt:

- Tetris
- Lumines
- Splatoon 2: Salmon Run

It worries me that the free software community gets the "how" for making GPL-licensed federated equivalents to popular web services, but they rarely understand the "why".

This is evidenced when new services pop up with poor/missing moderation controls and no ability for users to downloading & migrate their data.

If users who don't or can't self-host are expected to swap one unaccountable group for another, and the community is no better, then there is no benefit to them for making the switch.

As there's a gooey version of Luigi called Gooigi, is there a Wagooigi? (Or is gooey Waluigi… Goowaigi?)

And there's gotta be a Gooario too, right?

The plan is to import all past Libre Graphics Meeting recordings over there and make them available right from the #fediverse.

Me, today, at my desk: PS4 remote app on phone, navigating to No Man's Sky, hitting options, "Check for update".

(I'd like the update already downloaded and installed when I have time to play.)

(BTW: The "Synthesis" update hasn't arrived for PS4, yet.)

If you haven't listened to Mouth Moods or any other of Neil Cicierega's music yet, quickly visit and download the albums (for free). Or find them on various music services.

The albums are comedic mashups, all very well done.

Mouth Moods is a secret masterpiece of sampling/remix culture; in this essay I will etc etc
