Hey everyone, I took last week off because of my terrible memory. So I’m back this week because of my improved memory!
- TV critic extraordinaire Alan Sepinwall writes about his early days on the job and how watching TV was different 20 years ago. The Internet has really transformed the TV landscape.
- Many people think Donald Trump is a narcissist, but you probably haven’t heard any psychiatrists saying so, because of something called the Goldwater rule. Maggie Koerth-Baker of FiveThirtyEight explains.
- Blogger Ozy Frantz explains that people don’t see themselves as villains. This is a useful starting point for being able to empathize with others.
- Blogger Point of Production has some perspectives on new media and online discourse. The piece explains how “new media” got to be in the situation they’re in, but it doesn’t really explain how this leads to “pundit war.” Maybe a reader can complete the theory.
- Writing for Medium, José Picardo explains how anti-technology bias and anti-youth bias go hand-in-hand. Maybe tone down the “kids these days” rhetoric, alright?
- Finally, Mike Fahey of Kotaku has some fun with Game Developer Barbie.
Alright, that’s enough for now. See you next week. I might write up some thoughts on E3. Or not. We’ll see.
