GDC Vault - Designing for Mystery in Kentucky Route Zero
2013 / Over the course of its development and leading up to the release of its first episode, Kentucky Route Zero transformed significantly, moving from an objective-driven game full of puzzles with locks and keys to something more slow-paced, character-driven, and mysterious. We'll talk about this evolution, look at a few specific moments in the game with demonstrations of how exactly they changed over time, and reflect a bit on how designing for mystery shaped our process and the resulting game.

The Scenography of Kentucky Route Zero - YouTube
This 2014 session from Cardboard Computer's Tamas Kemenczy discusses the environment design and cinematography of Kentucky Route Zero, and the use of theatrical stagecraft and slow cinema. Borrowing the lens of scenography, Kermenczy looks at some notable set designs, architecture, and filmmakers that influenced the game's art direction, and how it balances mood, realism and the mundane in its set pieces.

Text-Only : No Cash Needed At This Cafe. Students Pay The Tab With Their Personal Data
Right now, Shiru Cafe in Providence doesn't have any sponsors. Ferris said the student information she and her staff are collecting will be used to narrow down the companies the cafe will bring on as sponsors. She said the student information is securely held and will not be sold to third-party companies.

"They're very good about keeping everyone's information close. They don't sell it, they don't do anything of that sort," Ferris said.

– June 18, 2008

Consumer B Gone enables you to block a shopping cart by just playing some tones out of your mobile phone speaker as a song or as a ringtone. Consumer B Gone is born from the incredible shock that the shopping cart wheel could be remotely locked if you tried to exit the supermarket parking lot.

I am particularly fond of the late Peter Bernstein's definition of risk: "More things can happen than will."[PB] I like that definition not because it tells me what to do, but rather because it tells me what comes with any new expansion of possibilities. Put differently, it tells me that with the new, the realm of the possible expands and, as we know, when the realm of the possible expands, prediction is somewhere between difficult and undoable.

Ambient Performances - YouTube
This "Ambient Performances" set is an ongoing playlist-in-progress of live performance videos on YouTube of ambient music by a wide variety of musicians using a wide variety of equipment. There are two rules for it: Rule #1: I'm only including recordings I'd listen to without video. Rule #2: I'm only including recordings where the video gives some meaningful sense of a correlation between what the musician is doing and what the listener is hearing. Note: The list appears in reverse-chronological order, which means that the video listed as #1 is the most recent. When a new video is added, the current #1 becomes #2.

I made a 2001-era emoji font! That you can use! – Monica Dinculescu
If you want to use it, you can download the font here, and use it as a font-face:

@font-face {
font-family: og-emoji;
src: url(/fonts/og-dcm-emoji.ttf);
.og {
font-family: og-emoji, sans-serif;
<span class='og'>💥</span>

If you’re going to use it, maybe give me some credit, because I spent an unhealthy amount of time on it. Also, if you’re DoCoMo, please don’t sue me. Emojineering comes only from the ❤.

Frog To Phone: Instant Emoji Feedback for the Real Web · daily
When I was fixing referrer logs to be fun again I had low expectations – feedback via links is sort of a dying art. Who has time to read web sites and link to them? Seems hard.

The genius of social media style “one click to send feedback” buttons is that it not only lowers the friction of sending feedback, but through smartphone push notifications makes that feedback instantaneous.

The web doesn’t really work that way by default, but I decided I could fake it.

The end result are the little frog, fire and other unicode emoji guys at the bottom of this post. Go ahead and tap/click the one below if you’re impatient – my phone and watch will light up. With a frog.

Follow the Asus T100 several "guides/outlines" for similar systems.

The 32bit Atom SoCs + 32bit UEFI was another good idea (Clover..)
