Taking Topamax to prevent migraines has me spending the entire day foggy and unproductive. The day I stop taking it, I get a migraine. Not cool.
@fC Yep, the first Quest for Glory VGA game. :)

It’s hard to celebrate 4/20 when so many people of color are still being arrested for pot. We have to do better. Learn more: https://benjerrys.co/2Xn8vr2
@SciFiGameDev Interesting idea.
Wouldn't that encourage downvoting mediocre (that doesn't spark enthusiasm or outrage) content to promote excellent content?
That seems like it could create its own problems.

If someone asks you a question and you don't know the answer, it is VERY IMPORTANT to say "I don't know" instead of guessing, covering, or speculating.
I would be interesteed in your thoughts on something:
Why is unionizing in IT so difficult? What can we do to facilitate it?
My friend @sandro (who also was the W3C staff member on the Social Working Group as it turns out) has put together a chart about "ways to harm people online" (whether you agree all are harms, most are, and all are claimed as such) that I think is really useful: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZQDWwh3J6c_RAVlIAPAKI6eRB4HI7HlrBwAJrP8btkQ/edit
What's interesting is that most of these are about harm caused by *distributing* information.
This is something I have been working toward, alongside many others, during my entire career at Unity.
It took a lot of "hack weeks," 20% time, and other donated time to get off the ground; it came within a hair's breadth of being terminated multiple times.
We fought to keep it alive, to get it onto the release track, to keep it from being shipped with special license restrictions.
It's great to finally see our work having a public impact.

I go to the park, to a specifically calm silent area... Four teens come and sit 10m away from me, but because of where we are seated I'm the only one who hear the music they are playing...
I don't have the energy to ask them to turn off, but I rather move. I don't want to take the fight.
Please, be cognizant of your surroundings, and reach your youth and teens to be so too.

At my neurologist’s office (for programmer migraines). Listening to two working-class women in their sixties complain about drowning in healthcare copays and bills. “What’s the point of living ten years longer if we’re just going to be in pain?” So many feels.
@Tak Very excited for this!
