I, Benjamin Smedberg, will try to do what I think is appropriate with any information collected by this website.

I’m an idiot, but I’m an idiot working in the name of progress” And here’s the history of wetware. New gem from Zero books: Adam Kotsko’s Awkwardness Ian Bogost’s review. MSTRMND on ‘Star Wars’ prequels. In Defense of Dots: The lost art of comic books. Another multiple: my friend Jenny Davidson posted something about rereading Paul La Farge’s essay on D&D in the Believer within the same few minutes as I called on Twitter to help me find a guild.
