I've been doing parkour classes over Zoom for a few weeks now.
Zoom is a security disaster but that isn't what bugs me. What really bugs me about it is that teleconferencing in its current iteration is like a turn-based battle system in an RPG: movement phase, watch phase, explain phase, repeat. The quick feedback that you get from in-person instruction is gone, replaced with blocky representations of the people you used to see every day.
Oh, yeah, and technoshit glitches: earbud microphones dropping out, unexplainable packet loss, the goddamn unkillable latency, echo cancellation failures.
It's something I have to live with, I guess. The structure compounded with the flaws of the medium just means that you're constantly aware that it's a poor substitute for what you used to have. Maybe that's a good thing.
I also confuse "V" for "S" because "select clip" in Premiere is V; in kdelive, V is an insert action, and doing that accidentally seems to trash internal state to the point where I can no longer move clips. also moving multiple clips seems to do this
Territory Studio's exposition through the UI they created for Blade Runner 2049: https://territorystudio.com/project/blade-runner-2049/
unfortunately the UI on the page, like the UI in the film, is frustrating and impractical: the auto-sliders are too fast and they don't always stop when you want them to. if you can get it to work, though, there's a lot of neat detail
so there's requests for people who have known to have had COVID-19 to donate plasma for (as I understand it) experimental treatments and devising antibody tests
however, I'm seeing general calls for people to donate blood, and I don't understand how that's connected. is this a game of telephone that's just gone wrong or is there more to it
also ongoing: Age of Pandora (yeah, still going, chapter 27 for today!) and my tumbling class, which moved to a handstand work Zoom teleconference (yeah I know, Zoom is shit, that's why it's only on a compromised device)
I think I've found ways to stave off atrophy, now I gotta keep being careful to stave off respiratory failure

has someone done a corporate communications bingo card yet
just in case it's not clear, this is not a suggestion to give money to Square Enix; you can decide whether that's appropriate on your own
We’re sharing games we’ve made? A few years ago I wrote Space Adventure Laika, a Twine game about being a small dog who is going to die. https://philome.la/mistydemeo/space-adventure-laika/index.html
