“It seems to me that Facebook and Twitter and YouTube—and just so you don’t think this is a generational thing, TV and radio and magazines and even newspapers, too—are all ultimately just an elaborate excuse to run away from yourself. To avoid the difficult and troubling questions that being human throws in your way. Am I doing the right thing with my life? Do I believe the things I was taught as a child? What do the words I live by—words like duty, honor, and country—really mean? Am I happy?”

From William Deresiewicz.

I’ve been ignoring this blog in favor of quicker more micro posting forums like Twitter and Facebook, but I plan on using this more in the future. I find a lot of links worth sharing like the one above, but I cannot keep them forever if I simply post them on FB and let the waves of “content” erode them for the ages. I’ll certainly be posting a flood when I go to GDC next month. Oh, and speaking of GDC and Leadership, here’s a really interesting talk on leadership and Buddhism and things from last GDC.

In other, more game-related news, Fire & Dice is someone’s “hands-down … favorite mobile game”. So I pat myself on the back.
