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.
