Spent some time today explaining to my kids how "online gaming" worked before broadband. Questions:

How did you share memes? Mostly message boards, but at a LAN party someone might have a folder. We didn't call theme memes though

So you brought a laptop to like a Pizza Hut? LOL, no one could afford a laptop and they were all slow. No we carted our tower and CRT and a power strips ans created a fire hazard and a huge energy bill for the pizza place, as God intended

Our house of neurodivergent people has found a thing useful: when approaching someone and not sure if they are in a conversational headspace, just say “engage?” as in is it ok to engage with you now, no problem either way just nod or shake head or say no. It’s minimal interruption and there’s no judgement either way.

Glitch is getting acquired by Fastly, and this part of the article broke my heart:

“Glitch’s 14-person staff will all make the move over to Fastly. This does, however, spell the end for Glitch’s union, which made history last year when it signed the white collar tech world’s first collective bargaining agreement. The union will be dissolved as employees are transferred to the new entity. The Verge has reached out to the Communications Workers of America, which the union organized with, for comment.”

Thunder rumbled. He gazed out the window in frightened fixation. His was the only house around.

Lightning struck the tree outside. When the storm passed, he ran out to mourn what felt like an old friend.

Among the split and charred remains, a lump of ash stirred. A bright eye blinked at him blearily.

He cleared the ash and bore the twig-like creature inside. Rest, soup, and sunlight soon saw it better, but it seemed unhurried to leave and he was glad of the company.
