Lost Constellation and the Forest God
“Actually I only just discovered and did this sidestory, so it is by pure coincidence this lined up right. but it is still pretty cool. If you haven’t played this game, please do so here.”

Meet Is Murder
“ The room was enthusiastic. Maker hours blend childhood summer-day vagueness with a thick coat of artistic entitlement. But by the time the team dispersed, we’d faced facts: We were Managers or Managers’ minions, most of us, ineligible for stretches of solitude, destined for lives of video conferences and call-in codes. And indeed, only the product, design and engineering teams at Spring — today’s nobility — were now slated to enjoy one full day a week of Maker time. The Maker’s schedule was the privilege of the elite builders of code and apps, and the scope of makable things was not going to include casseroles, movies and corn-husk dolls anytime soon. We were to return to days chopped, like hot dogs for toddlers, into meetings.”

Can the United Kingdom government legally disregard a vote for Brexit? | David Allen Green
“A vote for Brexit will not be determinative of whether the UK will leave the EU. That potential outcome comes down to the political decisions which then follow before the Article 50 notification. The policy of the government (if not of all of its ministers) is to remain in the EU. The UK government may thereby seek to put off the Article 50 notification, regardless of political pressure and conventional wisdom.

There may already be plans in place to slow things down and to put off any substantive decision until after summer. In turn, those supporting Brexit cannot simply celebrate a vote for leave as a job done — for them the real political work begins in getting the government to make the Article 50 notification as soon as possible with no further preconditions.”

6, 75: The “quad spike” wave
“Japan has a fancy geostationary weather satellite, Himawari-8, producing true-color photos✼ of the western Pacific and eastern Asia every ten minutes. It came online in summer, and since then I’ve been making little animations to show things like the Indonesian fires, contrails, and the whole Earth. I mentioned them in this newsletter, and to friends I remarked that most people didn’t seem to think they were as cool as I did, but I was happy to keep tinkering.”

my tmux setup – ProcrastinHacking
“One last thing to fix is the handling of ssh agent forwarding. What can happen (a common issue also with screen) is that SSH_AUTH_SOCK gets defined during the first connection and then (once such connection is closed) becomes ‘stale’ in all subsequent connections.”

Nintendo's Genre Innovation Strategy: Thoughts on the Revolution's new controller
“Nintendo needs to control their hardware platform in order to force innovation to occur in the control mechanisms. Other console manufacturers who rely on the hardcore audiences and standardized genres don’t see this need. They would happily standardize the console platform and make it into a commodity. Microsoft has historically made major comments about having one universal development platform.”
