Stop Talking to Each Other and Start Buying Things: Three Decades of Survival in the Desert of Social Media

A brilliant excoriating essay by Cat Valente talking about corporate treatement of internet community. With antibonus Russian spies in the case of livejournal.

I am older than her, so remember further back but exactly how I felt about the loss of Google+ particularly.

Go read.

The Google+ Last Stand

On the Death of Google+ James West – did this – I had a copy for a long time but disappeared. I thought about it again the other day, then went looking and asked Jez Gordon, who I thought would remember. He did not, but thought Ramanan Sivaranjan would would. Indeed he did.

So thanks to you all, gentlemen.

Those were the days, my friends, to quote a song.

Also, James has a Ko-Fi Tip Jar if this makes you burn with anger.

Blades of the Jhereg

Many moons ago I backed the Blades In the Dark Kickstarter – one of the stretch goals was a supplement based on Steven Brust’s Jhereg series.

I kept checking, then things got way too busy post Google+ death and I hadn’t checked if it actually came into existence.

So, it does! I basically thought to check again because the last book of the Jhereg novel series comes out early next year – a long time reading things one of my all time favourites.

Some commentary just before that is here by the looks :-

Hopefully will delve into this during the holidays.

An all-time favourite cover, too – would love a 3D version.

Here’s a cool use of ChatGPT

Where asking for 6 monsters for a particular campaign started with:-

Hit Dice: 8+8

No. of Attacks: 2

So very good, really!
