Got inspired and designed a simple card game (using 52 pack deck)... No idea where to find a community that builds/tests these? Anyone know?

dude, wtf. I check out LinkedIn's feed and sooo many people I used to know are posting in there and not on any other socials. I feel like I've definitely missed some trend. It's obviously all corpo speak, but what?!

Finished draft 1 of my new novel. Took me more than a year (longer than I had planned). But, there's *a* story here. Unlike other drafts I've finished since publishing Hope Runners of Gridlock, I actually feel really good about where this is. Feels so good.

Anyone got accounts at Mercury (business or personal)? Them using Evolve (which they don't anymore) and now Choice also under regulatory scrutiny. Is it worth being worried about?

Successful media always spoke for us in some way. In 2024, I think it's even more important. In this week's newsletter I tackle media saturation and theorise on why some media is being instantly memory-holed. https://sceneswithsimon.com/p/media-saturation-and-having-media

I feel like the (indie) music industry need to fund an educational campaign to explain to streaming users that it's all a market-share model. Still find many people that are surprised that listens and payouts gets pooled into one big pot.

Damn. 'Civil War' came so close to actually being a stellar film. Fumbled the bag by not focusing on a larger theme of how truth is presented and who gets to tell the truth. Having the press be partly responsible for the war would've added way more gravitas. Main characters have little agency.

Some days you struggle to write a paragraph, some days you manage to write 3000 words. Today was one of the latter. Feels good. Usually these writing days happen closer to the end as it all falls into place. After a year, getting closer to finishing draft 1. 😍🙌

On 18 Nov 1883, the 'day of two noons', the clocks in the US changed to standard time for benefit of the railroads. What felt like incremental change was actually a threshold change (much larger impact). I talk about this and more in my latest newsletter! https://sceneswithsimon.com/p/protocol-thresholds-and-the-days

It's been 6 months since I played Disco Elysium and I'm still thinking about it. Transcendent experience and I don't know if it will ever be possible to happen again. It was a miracle it was even created at all given what went down ZA/UM.

One of those weeks where I'm frustratingly making little progress in my novel. Do you cut the cord and write a different part of the novel, or sit and struggle with a part for a while?

Managing congestion is a key problem in blockchain systems. So, I wondered if you can take inspiration from it for designing congestion pricing system in cities. Feel like there's not enough cross-pollination happening. https://sceneswithsimon.com/p/paying-drivers-to-not-drive-congestion
