A twitter hashtag is going on about four games that influenced you, and hey, I can post the images here too.
Missing moments in games: investigating key moments in _Everything_ and _El Shaddai_. (Way big spoilers.) http://blog.zarfhome.com/2018/04/missing-moments-in-games.html
Inevitably, I have words about the Twitter client situation: http://blog.zarfhome.com/2018/04/why-does-twitter-allow-third-party.html
My comment on Slack's recent announcement about their XMPP/IRC gateways. They are making a mistake. http://blog.zarfhome.com/2018/03/open-letter-slack-should-not.html
Cyan announces Firmament, posts a trailer video. I don't know anything more than anybody else but I have a blog so I might as well speculate some. http://blog.zarfhome.com/2018/03/cyan-announces-firmament.html
I am aware of the Asymmetric/CampoSanto party, the "Made In MA" party (since I live in MA), and "The Other Party". Latter two can be found at https://www.eventbrite.com/d/ca--san-francisco/gdc/
Is there much of a GDC-going contingent here? I am casting around for stuff to do which is interesting on the indie/narrative front.

GAMES ARE fur-bearing. GAMES ARE NOT the blockchain.
Heck, maybe I should just procgen enough manifesto to sink a boat.
A friend pointed out the Cheap Art Manifesto which is also appealing.
Maybe I'll just scream incoherently for thirty seconds and run the audio data through a Life simulator.

Great writing by Bruce Dawson on the 360's CPU: "it’s still nerdy cool to see solid proof that instructions that were not executed were causing crashes." https://randomascii.wordpress.com/2018/01/07/finding-a-cpu-design-bug-in-the-xbox-360/

I haven't looked at keybase in while, sigh.
I don't currently have the right stick hooked up to anything.
When you're browsing, stick/dpad/arrow-key movement is purely geometrical -- it ignores path directions. I figure that people will just hold the stick down.
(When you're playing, purely geometric stick movement always works. But moving in the path direction should *also* work, even if there's a bendy path. Making all that work was fun.)
