Just finished my first book of 2022 (well 2nd, but the first I've started and finished in 2022). Preparing for seeing @neiltyson when he comes to Des Moines. Can I solve the dark matter/dark energy mystery before then?

This is getting re-tweeted outside of my usual circle, so I guess I should add: this line of thought is based on my own philosophical theory of games, which is that games are the art form that work in the artistic medium of agency itself. More here:
My book, GAMES: AGENCY IS ART is out! It's about: How game designers sculpt agency. How games let us record, transmit, and explore new forms of agency. How real games make us more free. How gamification undermines our freedom.

This. Right. Here.
Word of advice: Don't go out in this incoming winter storm. If you get into an accident, the ER's don't have room for you.

Please don’t pick up a ticket that will add value to our customers because our sprint is ending & it’ll mess up estimations since it’ll bleed into the next sprint. #notMyAgile

I guess I was expecting a more epic last battle? It was challenging, but I thought there would be more.

Finally, many years after I started, I finished The Wind Waker. I should probably finish Majora's Mask next?

Why is Wordle good? I have a few ideas. One is: it's not jammed full of growth hacky bullshit. It exists as it is and doesn't demand attention throughout the day. It's so pleasant to find a thing online where you don't feel like you're the commodity being sold
