I can't help but feel very suspiscious when someone brings up blockchains in a conversation about decentralization. I just don't really buy into it at all. Social applications on top of Ethereum? Yeah, love to ruin the planet with proof of work algorithms just to post a cat gif.

it's weird how often you see someone talking about e.g. the production of a video game or a movie, in a way that treats the people responsible as, i guess, of superhuman genius? like "could this blooper reel actually mean THIS?" or "surely this beta screenshot means they were thinking about this" and in every case it's like, no, that decision was arbitrary & meaningless, and everyone makes mistakes, and some things have no explanation, and they're just regular people just like you

Dear #app developers, "Fixes and stability improvements" is not a changelog.

Benjamin Netanyahu didn't sell many Pixel phones in 2017, and that's not good for the line

It’s not AI vs people
It’s not Big Data vs people
It’s not robots vs people

It’s corporations vs people.

Wacky Idea:

Step 1: Create some awful blockchain/gig economy company

Step 2: Hire a 20something white cis man to be a fake co-founder so you can get VC money

Step 3: Instead of wasting tons of VC money on SF office space and free beer, run the company frugally and burn through the rest of the cash on social welfare projects

Step 4: Still don't make profit and fail, just like all of the other startups in the space, but fail with a legacy of turning VC money into actual social good

I wish I knew how my game studio could thrive without Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. I take one for the team because our livelihood is at stake, but it keeps me logged in— just from a different account.

Anyone have examples of new, indie game studios that aren’t on social media and are successful?

I'm super curious how the 'Capitalism or GTFO' crowd is going to react when the markets inevitably crash again, foreclosures skyrocket, and 401k's disappear while they watch socialism in action as the banks get their obligatory multi trillion dollar handout. 🤔

Currently enduring my daily/constant reminder that open offices are baaaad

I've made more money from my day job in the past 48 hours than I made from Steam for the entirety of 2017, in case you were wondering how *that's* been going

It's pretty annoying how my engine builds went from ~50 minutes before the Spectre/Meltdown mitigation to 2+ hours afterward
