I feel like I should have posted an #introduction but I don't know what that even usually entails. I never even used twitter and have never participated in a large microblogging network before. I think I've seen people just list what they're into so I'll attempt that, I guess? I love #anime #freesoftware #reading #audiobooks #music #writing #privacy #learning etc. I am against #capitalism #gafam #surveilance and the wars on #drugs and #terror etc. I am also learning #japanese! よろしくおねがいします！w
I'm legitimately not going to be able to handle someone saying they're a legal adult when they don't even remember dial-up.
@revolverocelot the original reason they were called MegaGames was because Tim Sweeny said a good game shouldn't take more than a megabyte.
One of my little dreams is to one day leverage demoscene tech like procedural asset generation to make a modern game with high quality sound and textures that'll fit a single 1.44MB floppy, just to make people go "what the heck?"

I have yet to really come to terms with my extreme disappointment with the tech industry. Not just with the "techlash," but with many more personal things:
- burning out on being an open-source maintainer
- realizing that the browser industry is brutal and uncompetitive
- noticing how many tech influencers are just seeking out social media validation through Twitter or GitHub
- realizing that the frontend JS community is largely fad-driven rather than evidence-driven
I could go on
I am a fluent English speaker who is very slowly learning Japanese. I know very little as it is, so if anyone reading this is Japanese, I'd love some help!
