The slightly involuntary guest-poster at... →
The bloggess is on a book deadline, so she’s posting text messages from her friend that are frakking hilarious. A sample: Impulse items at the checkout line… so close to my escape from Wal-mart, I am forced to contemplate my need for a 6 foot roll of bubble tape. They should really put the milk right there. This is always about the time I realize I forgot it. I do not like swimwear with...

Help me get Safecast Kickstarted
This morning, my friend Sean Bonner e-mailed me this: As you may or may not know I’ve spent the vast majority of the last month either in Tokyo or working with people in Japan on project I helped start called Safecast.

Obama on Manning: “He Broke the Law.” So Much for... →
President Barack Obama made stunning accusations about accused Wikileaks whistleblower PFC Bradley Manning, directly asserting that Manning “broke the law.” Apparently the President of the United States of America and a self-described Constitutional scholar does not care that Manning has yet to be tried or convicted for any crime.

Videogame retailers finish first in FTC's... →

So the next time you fucktards start thinking that you need to pass a bunch of bullshit laws that affect gamers, keep this in mind. Big sloppy kiss, Wil
Obama Sends Armed Drones to Help NATO in Libya War →
President Obama has authorized the use of armed Predator drones to attack Libya government forces fighting the rebellion against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi as NATO struggles to regain momentum since taking command of the operation from the United States. Can we call it a war now? I’m so fucking happy that we’re pouring even more fucking money into this fucking pit of a civil war on...

Using simple techniques, Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden extracted data off of an iOS version 4 device and wrote an open source software utility to effectively graph this data onto a map. As a fellow researcher, I champion their creativity and their...

There are a lot of great things about working in the games industry. You know what the best thing is? I work in the games industry. Every day I get to play, talk, and write about games. I get to talk to people who make games. I get to share my opinions with other people who play games and they get to tell me how brilliant or how stupid I am when it comes to games. When people in the sleepy...
