My impression from VR sci-fi was always that a big part of the appeal of VR was creating a virtual world accessible to people with disabilities. Two hours into this keynote, and no mention of even the obvious accessibility issues being brought up.

oh god(s) "working in the metaverse" whyyyy please make it stop?

Congrats, Facebook Connect, on combining the worst things about in-person conferences with the worst things about virtual conferences.

I really wish OSS communities would stop defaulting to Discord or Slack. Your software isn’t a lifestyle. I don’t want to live with the goddamn thing. I want a forum I can visit once in a while, not to take out an attention mortgage.

@dredmorbius "I think being gaslit, let me get a sanity check" might be reasonable.

(also, hi, fedi! have been fighting off severe depression and super-quiet lately. but all is well on gamedev front.)

anyone done any foley/synch work on Linux? I'm interested in possibilities of establishing session workflow with editing facilities - so import export of formats that are compatible with video/film/picture editors (whatever they are using).

would anyone share their experience and links to possible floss software tools?

Sometimes I wonder how different the U.S. would be as a democracy if our media spent as much time on day-to-day international news as they currently spend on celebrity gossip.

20-year-long war: media silence

U.S. withdrawal from 20-year-long war: takes over full news cycle

(Also, good morning, fedi! I exist, I'm just overwhelmed.)

Trying to get back to novel-writing (has been seriously disrupted due to illness/new game).


(I get that the last draft was mostly big-picture structural and character edits, and I need to go back and redo the prose, but... aaaagh I don't know what I'm doing, why did I decide to write a book, aaaagh? this reads less like a real book than the first draft did, aaaagh.)

I basically want gender to work IRL the way it does in Dwarf Fortress.

I think a lot about how rural rage makes a lot of sense and how leftists are really fucking up by giving up on rural areas.
But then the leftists I know living and working in rural red areas have been called 'far right sympathizers' because they're in it for the long haul changing people's minds and doing solidarity work rather than...just argue with people. Be their neighbor. Work with em. Live with em. Be in community.

I need to know:

If you consider yourself neurotypical (like you don't suspect you have asd, adhd, bpd or anything in the spectrum), do you enjoy small talk?
