A Couple Accidentally Defaced a $500,000 Painting in a Seoul Mall After Mistaking It for a Participatory Artwork

quote [ A couple visiting an exhibition at a mall in Seoul accidentally vandalized a painting by street artist JonOne said to be worth $500,000. ]

And when I break it down, it's a work of art
And if you feel the same, can you participate

Be a VR giant and swat at PC players like pests in Davigo

quote [ Davigo begs the question: why didn't this exist already? It's an asymmetric multiplayer game in which one player in a VR headset attempts to swipe and slam up to four tiny, nimble players on desktop computers, who each wield rocket launchers. It plays with scale in ways that look like glorious fun. ]

For Steele. Also, if you have no VR tech, you can still play blinking games with your webcam.

Jeff Bezos Allegedly Loves Bathing in the Piss of his Employees

quote [ “BREAKING: More Perfect Union has obtained emails showing that Amazon privately pressured USPS to install an illegal ballot dropbox during the union election in Bessemer, AL.

The emails directly contradict public statements by USPS about the box's origins.

There's more.” ]

Surely the reason he wants them pissing in bottles is for his own kinks, no?

They're counting the votes now. I don't have high hopes given how dirty amazon was being. Illegal post office boxes, massive billboards with misinformation, manipulating the timing of traffic lights to mess with canvassing efforts, etc...

Growing the Apocalypse » Glitch Logs

quote [ In Apocalypse World, when a player doesn’t know what to do they look at their character sheet to see what moves are available to them. In this teaching toolkit system, tutors who didn’t know how to proceed looked at the list of moves and picked one.
For example, one of the Agendas the tutors were given was “Build a learning environment”. Some of the associated moves were “Limit a distraction”, “Set an expectation”, and “Give specific praise”. Another Agenda was “Help students achieve learning goals” and some of the associated moves were “Teach a hard skill”, “Teach a soft skill”, “Design and play a game”, and “Model work”. ]

An interesting perspective on loose boundaries for teaching. Note that this is explicitly not some form of gamified motivation.

I made $22 Virtual Reality Gloves.

quote [ This is the journey of how I decided to make my own VR Haptic Gloves and the first 3 prototypes on the way to making VR Haptics affordable for everyone. ]

The dude that made the VR gloves that have been all over TikTok and youtube has responded to the recent popularity with the intent to start a diy series to show people how to make the gloves and teach the basics behind them. Pretty ingenious techinques.

There's also a Humble Spring Into VR Bundle - kinda disappointing selection, but if you're just getting into VR, they're a pretty good start for a library.

Will the US Really Experience a Violent Upheaval in 2020?

quote [ My model suggests that the next [peak in violence] will be worse than the one in 1970 because demographic variables such as wages, standards of living and a number of measures of intra-elite confrontation are all much worse this time ]

2020, we ain't playin', now it's lit for everything

People are now writing erotic fanfiction about the ship that got stuck in the Suez Canal

quote [ Following a nautical traffic jam, a toilet paper shortage and a delay in shipment of sex toys, Ever Given is now pioneering a new genre of erotica. One that will either make you want to throw yourself overboard or wish the cargo had kept the canal company for longer. ]

"Suez has always believed that he was not a pervert. And once again, he is terribly, extremely wrong.

‘Shit, I was so lewd on that day…’ He lamented mentally."

Make Digital Preservation Easier

quote [ If major companies think it’s too hard or costly to leave up sites filled with user-generated content, perhaps we need to change the motivations. ]
