Out of the Blue

Something that's changed around here over the past several weeks is my effort to reduce the number of posts that use bullet points. One aspect of this has been to reduce the twice daily roundups of most non-game techie items like "mobilization" and "metaverse." At first I was adding these to the first post each morning, as it helped fill out the news when there aren't too many other stories. The other day it struck me that this made such bits far less timely, which is a bigger issue than those aesthetic considerations, so I've switched them to be part of the last scheduled post of each day. No big deal, but I thought I'd outline my thinking on this in case folks have feedback to share on how this is handled.

Hey Blue, do you have an "arrangement" with videosift? It seems as though you only link to them these days. Have a bad experience with the videos at youtube or

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.
