We'll show you what your Blockbuster became, and explore the the retail spaces that remain. A bit of nostalgic naval gazing I'm proud to have helped put together.


Code Review, Forwards and Back

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 14:54:55 GMT

Your team's code review practices cause ripple effects far into the future. In this play, see several ways a single code review can go, then fast-forward and rewind to see the effects – on codebase and culture – of different code review approaches. Video recording of a 22-minute play about code review, mentorship, tech management, and regret. Premiered on October 6th, 2017 at PyGotham in New York City. Announcement blog post ("it's Run Lola Run but about code review") and wrapup post (audience responses included "I used to be that reviewer and I'm trying not to be anymore" and "I don't code at all but this is a marvelous management parable").


Write or Die 3

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 21:42:40 GMT

Write or Die 3 is the latest in a line of quirky tools for short-circuiting writer's block. Too many writing apps are too unopinionated, they will wait forever for you to start writing. Write or Die exhorts you to write and when you stop writing it will provide consequences.

Lots of customization for a variety of modes. Stimulus mode plays calming sounds while you write. Reward mode gives you Skinneresque reinforcements for accomplishing writing milestones. Consequence mode will show you creepy images and play annoying sounds until you start writing again. It's designed in every way to help you silence your inner editor and get your first draft out.

Follow Along At Home

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 17:42:23 GMT

as I travel around the US in a truck and tiny camper, taking pictures and writing, well, blog entries. I left Asheville, NC on October 10, 2017 and one month in, I'm in New Mexico. So if you enjoy slow travel stories and photography, please join me!

The Bake Canadian Take Off

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 21:22:03 GMT

It's a podcast! Richard Platel (me) and Liz Walker discuss this week's episode of the Canadian edition of Bake Off, The Great Canadian Baking Show.


Tumbleweird is a free, monthly, alternative zine distributed in and around Washington state's Tri-City (Kennewick, Richland, Pasco) area.

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 03:23:09 GMT

My friend Logan and I started the zine last year. At that time, it was printed in black & white (regular copy paper folded in half with saddle stitch binding). In February 2017 we switched to a tabloid format (24 pages, 8 of them in color, about 15 inches by 10 inches, same binding). Every issue is available on our web site as a PDF. Its current tagline is "Your local liberal rag." It has comics, a crossword, horoscopes, art, local events, and articles.

Some recurring features include Savage Love, Whomp! (comic), Strange Kingdom (comic), Where to Find Cannabis in the Tri-County Area, Top 10 Most Pirated Movies of the Week, Ted's Head (opinion), Farm to Fork (cooking), Alanna's Movie Reviews, Quinn's Corner (advice/anecdotes), and Play This Game (board games).

Our November issue (volume 2, issue 9) just came out yesterday. It includes a comic I did about how we recently shifted control of the zine to an editorial board.

By the way, we make some neat color stickers as part of our patreon; if you'd like one mailed to you mefi mail me! (Offer good till November 20, let's say.)


Date Me Super Senpai

Sat, 04 Nov 2017 19:47:03 GMT

It's the first video game to come out of the new media program at a youth development program I worked with, SAY Sí. It was designed and programmed entirely by the high school students that are part of the program (with some help from instructors). It's a dating sim set at a school for superheroes, and features multiple endings with whatever gender you attempt to date. I'm not an instructor there anymore, but I am super proud of what these young folks accomplished.


WAFFLES! A weekly radio show/podcast on varying themes

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 14:02:30 GMT

A different theme each week! MeFite Kitteh and I co-host a Saturday-morning radio show at CFRC in Kingston, Ontario, and for over three years we've picked a weekly theme and explored it through music, in every style imaginable. I've been pushing the archives to podcast (legally, under a SOCAN 22F tariff) for a while now. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or Google Play (search for Waffles Radio)! The site also archives a summer radio fill-in/podcast on video game music and composers, Virtualosos, which ultimately wasn't sustainable.

Hey boils and ghouls! My 17th annual cartoon madness has been stitched together and reanimated for your Halloween viewing pleasure. CAUTION - political humor directed at the ruinous right-wing. Read with care and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!


Play Payba¢k

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 15:12:08 GMT

Payba¢k is a game designed to help teens understand the costs of college BEFORE they begin applying. We made it to address an issue many families face: Kids have no idea how much college actually costs. Parents are super uncomfortable discussing finances with their kids. So too often, nobody talks, kids apply to schools they can't afford, parents stretch themselves too thin and everyone ends up disappointed.

It's not a perfect simulator of the college experience. It's designed to be an icebreaker that empowers teens to be part of the planning process, to prompt conversation with parents and educators about how kids can proactively manage the amount of debt they take on.


Wrestling Social - The Independent, Progressive, Pro Wrestling Community

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 17:47:33 GMT

Based on my convos at XOXO, on MeFi itself, and around the 'ol Mastodon and Twitter spheres, there are a decent number of Indieweb folks who enjoy the art form of pro wrestling as much as I do. The current places to discuss pro graps online are mostly corporate-owned "communities" whose primary purpose is to provide eyeballs for advertisers. Wrestling Social is different. We're independent, we have a Code of Conduct, and we're sticking to it. Registration is

This is ground-up community building, so I'm posting first on the best online community in the world, MeFi. Let's be friends.

Clips for Hiking Poles with Hinge and Clasp

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 18:47:08 GMT

3D model of clips with a simple hinge and tension clasp. I designed these for my partner, who uses hiking poles for mobility but does not need to use both at all times. These clips allow a person to carry an unneeded pole on the one being used, keeping the other hand free.

Printed on a LulzBot TAZ 5, but designed to be printed on lower-resolution printers in a reasonable amount of time.

Special thanks to all of the volunteers at the Maker Hub at the Eugene Public Library for making this project possible, and to Mariah for support and field-testing!

I hope you'll check it out, and let me know what you think. I post a new comic up there everyday. Please, subscribe via email though the website if ya dig 'em! You can also follow the comics on instagram: Thanks! Jed


An elegy for Odeon Panton Street

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 18:22:44 GMT

One of the last flea pit movie theatres in London is being re-opened in a Luxe version. Maybe no one else will miss it, but I wanted to say goodbye to Odeon Panton Street.
