Basically I’m a female human being with brown hair, enjoy precision, reading the news, eating delicious food with my delicious friends and laughing at ridiculous things that don’t translate while you are desperately trying to make them. I love devastating movies, documentaries and hummingbirds (yes, in that order.) I dislike hanging out with someone constantly looking down at their phone (even landlines.) I’m neutral about fame and fortune. I’m fascinated by caddy Buddhists popping up all over Hollywood and people that take themselves too seriously. I could listen to them talk all day long. Reminding myself that I have a tailbone keeps me in check. - Tig Notaro

A games researcher at Microsoft wrote this on how to make video games that hook players, whether they like it or not:
"Each contingency is an arrangement of time, activity, and reward, and there are an infinite number of ways these elements can be combined to produce the pattern of activity you want from your players."
Notice his article does not contain the words “fun” or “enjoyment.” That’s not his field. Instead it’s “the pattern of activity you want.” #CrackedClassic
