Slynyrd on making isometric pixel art. Mmm.

Oliver Burkemann on urgency not really existing. I’ve found this to be true. Loads of things are more deferrable than they seem.

Jeremy Keith’s 2008 Iron Man Flickr story. Ha.

David B. Parker on “y’all” going mainstream. Good. My dad was from Virginia, so I grew up with “y’all” embedded in my bones.

Matt Bell on there being no failure, only practice. I like this.

Palmer Luckey’s crazy VR headset that kills you for real if you die in the game. I guess it was only a matter of time. Still, hopefully just trolling.

Noah Smith and roon on generative AI being autocomplete for everything. Seems like a reasonable take.

Jason Kottke on Maastricht University’s animation of the Covid virus lifecycle. Well done.

Charlie Jane Anders on mosaics of small stories. I love this. It’s something I try to do with my fiction, too.

Wyldcard, e-ink playing cards. Cool. I’d love a small e-reader around this size (smaller than my phone, super lightweight, no bells or whistles), especially once e-ink resolution gets better.
