I’m leaving Mojang
“I was at home with a bad cold a couple of weeks ago when the internet exploded with hate against me over some kind of EULA situation that I had nothing to do with. I was confused. I didn’t understand. I tweeted this in frustration. Later on, I watched the This is Phil Fish video on YouTube and started to realize I didn’t have the connection to my fans I thought I had. I’ve become a symbol. I don’t want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I don’t understand, that I don’t want to work on, that keeps coming back to me. I’m not an entrepreneur. I’m not a CEO. I’m a nerdy computer programmer who likes to have opinions on Twitter.”

Man Killed by Local Police in the Province of Judea
“Today Roman officials released a statement saying that the crucifixion was probably in-line with accepted police procedure, but that they would be reviewing that procedure to make sure it was fair to the Jewish subjects of the Empire.”

For BERG, My London Launchpad
“British science fiction, and also that antique British fantasia that we could lead the world in the field of mad science.  So they became BERG, a cultural invention unit.   They made, and did, great things.  They were techne and culture and politics, and their test flights dazzled their field.”

A hilariously sad tale of gender bias – Trisha Quan
“Some rando asshole on the internet called her an ‘incapable coder’ who didn’t ‘deserve the level of respect she expects’, demanded she prove herself, and even tried to give her career advice (buddy, she **literally** wrote the book on programming interviews and has had a more successful career so far than you could ever dream of).”

An awful week to care about video games
“One side has folded its arms, slumped its shoulders while pouting like an obstinate child that has learned they are getting a little brother or sister but wants to remain the singular focus of his parents' affection. The other side has opened its arms, unable to contain its love and compassion, because they understand they are no longer alone.”

1994’s The Stand does not stand the test of time
“But more disappointing—more devastating than all the braying and bombast and the lack of nuance—is how poorly The Stand captures the notion that a battle between good and evil is fought on the backs of workaday civilians.”

We found a better home: How our new homepage outperformed the old, 2 to 1
“This time, I started with a question I should have been focusing on all along: ‘What would be the best first time experience?’ The answer: it depends. It depends whether they have a dog.”

Rules For Games: Do & Don’t #8
“DO consider the possibility of happy things. It’s an odd realisation, that gaming so obsessively focuses either on attempting to recover from negativity or ambivalence. Someone’s kidnapped, needs to be avenged, trapped, pursued, dying… How about a game about someone whose day is going really well, and is about to get a whole lot better? Does no one have a positive tale to tell, an optimistic adventure to share? Where’s my game about everything going really flipping well?”

“Another way of looking at it — the people of San Francisco were so isolated they actually got excited about talking to people IN SAN JOSE. I mean, that’s pretty isolated.”

“When you run the program, you get two windows: a main game window, just like what you'd see on an emulator, and a control window with a log, titled ‘OpenGL / Dolphin System’.”

Things Changed Forever (with tweets) · tehawesome · Storify
“Normally when I deal with toughmen I just use my wit and sarcasm to get me out of the situation but that always had the luxury of distance. The crowd stopped and is watching us as he got genitals-touchingly close and asked me what I was going to do about him being a Power-Man.”
