Enter Housi, The Game I Make While I'm Waiting to Get Into VR

Hello, I've wanted to work full time in VR since 2014 but that option has never become available to me, in being restricted from the medium I want to work in I've noticed that it's really not all there yet enough really for most people anyway, there is still stuff to do in regular 3D

"This is a fantasy universe, not a representation of reality. I am a dragon, but you don't don't complain that I don't exist. 'Realism' is mostly a synonym for 'I don't like that people who don't look like me started showing up around here recently.'"

You Are Not So Smart podcast interviews Douglas Rushkoff about his book "Team Human" in which he outlines how tech that's supposed to connect us is instead isolating us, and (more importantly) what to do about it.

the Wet’suwet’en territory isn’t in Canada. colonial maps lie. Canada never bought it, was never given it. it is sovereign as in IT IS NOT CANADA. its land defenders are not “protesters.” they’re not staging a “pipeline protest.” they’re fighting a foreign invasion.
