So I've been noticing certain people - and not just part of this whole #GamerGate thing - use "Social Justice Warrior" as an insult.

But why is the willingness to fight for social justice supposed to be a bad thing? I don't see it. So why not declare ourselves Team Social Justice Warrior and claim the phrase for our own?

Who is with me?

(And should we use #TeamSocialJusticeWarrior or #TeamSJW as a hashtag?)

This image has gathered a lot of attention over on Facebook, and I just loved reading the reactions from several thousands of American posters. These generally varied between (a) shock, (b) disbelief, (c) a strong desire to move to Germany, and (d) lofty proclamations that "nothing in life is free".

For the record, this statement is largely true, though not quite complete. For starters, it only applies to German public universities - the majority of them, although there are a number of minor private universities which do charge tuition fees (they tend to specialize in Law and Business degrees).

Secondly, it applies to all students, Germans and foreigners alike - not just Americans.

As for how all this is paid for... well, it's funded by the taxes of Germans and other residents in Germany, of course. But as a German taxpayer, I am completely okay with this. I... more »

I’m not just making this up based on the occasional Tweet or forum post. After my HuffPost Live appearance, I was invited into a Google Hangout about GamerGate by Troy Rubert, aka @GhostLev. I accepted, and when I got in just about everyone who spoke openly talked about how mad they were that progressive politics and feminism were impinging on gaming, which they saw as an area they had enjoyed, free of politics, forever. They were extremely open about this. A day or so later, another GamerGater, @Smilomaniac, asked me to read a blog post he’d written about his involvement in the movement in which he explicitly IDs as anti-feminist, and says that while some people claim otherwise, he thinks GG is an anti-feminist movement.

I believe him; I think GamerGate is primarily about anger at progressive people who care about feminism and transgender rights and mental health and whatever else (I am not going to use your obnoxious social-justice warrior terminology anymore) getting involved in gaming, and by what you see as overly solicitous coverage of said individuals and their games. And that's fine! It's an opinion I happen to disagree with, but “at least it’s an ethos.”

But this is only going to be a real debate if you guys can cop to your real-life feelings and opinions. You should have a bit more courage and put your actual motives front and center. Instead, because some of you do have a certain degree of political savvy, as is evidenced whenever GamerGaters on 8chan and elsewhere try to rein in their more unhinged peers, you've decided to go the "journalism ethics" route.'

Coming soon to a rant near you: #GamerGate fighting corruption in the comics industry!

And by "corruption" the poster means, of course, that some comics try to be not as misogynistic and slightly more inclusive than they used to be.

Expect rape and death threats against female writers in the industry to intensify in the near future.

"False flags

Awkward things. Like, say, the threat of a “Montreal Massacre style” killing at a lecture given by a woman who still insists on making videos analyzing tropes in video games from a feminist perspective, despite numerous requests that she die. Clearly this threat and the plethora of other threats directed toward women involved in gaming are part of a massive covert opp designed to distract from the most pressing concern facing humanity: video-game reviews with which Gamergaters disagree."

The second thing you notice: Both employers and employees want more from an apprenticeship than short-term training. Our group heard the same thing in plant after plant: We’re teaching more than skills. “In the future, there will be robots to turn the screws,” one educator told us. “We don’t need workers for that. What we need are people who can solve problems”—skilled, thoughtful, self-reliant employees who understand the company’s goals and methods and can improvise when things go wrong or when they see an opportunity to make something work better.

Is Berlin the new Jerusalem? A Facebook page launched in Hebrew this month on how to move to a city far from rockets and rocketing prices in Israel has gone viral, reaching 600,000 people in a week. It is called Olim Le-Berlin, “Let’s ascend to Berlin”, using the same rousing verb Jews reserve for emigrating, or “ascending”, to Israel. An Israeli band sings a similar tune, turning the lyrics of Israel’s favourite song, “Jerusalem of Gold”, into a yearning for a “Reichstag of Peace, euro, and light”. Even Professor Manuel Trajtenberg, a leading economist commissioned by the government to look at the high cost of living, which sparked mass protests in 2011, has piped in. “Berlin is more attractive than Tel Aviv,” he says.

The response from official Israel has been vitriolic. Yisrael Ha-Yom, seen as the mouthpiece of the prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, chided Berlin’s ascenders on its front page. The voice of the nationalist right decried them as an insult to all Holocaust survivors. “See you in the gas chambers,” commented one critic on the Facebook page. The finance minister, Yair Lapid, has promised to extend price controls to more food items.___

"Lockheed Martin aims to develop compact reactor prototype in five years, production unit in 10"

With any other group I would say: "I will believe it when I see it." Actually, that still applies. But considering that this is Skunk Works I am less skeptical than with other groups.

Note: This is Hot Fusion, not Cold Fusion - they just radically changed the reactor design from other approaches.

Important information for #TeamSJW .

If you speak out against online harassment - as it has happened rather frequently as a part of the #GamerGate mess - you might be targeted for harassment yourself, up to and including rape and death threats. Zoe Quin has some useful tips based on her own experiences.

A second Demos study showed that while male celebrities, female journalists, and male politicians face the highest likelihood of online hostility, women are significantly more likely to be targeted specifically because of their gender, and men are overwhelmingly those doing the harassing. For women of color, or members of the LGBT community, the harassment is amplified. “In my five years on Twitter, I’ve been called ‘nigger’ so many times that it barely registers as an insult anymore,” explains attorney and legal analyst Imani Gandy.  “Let’s just say that my ‘nigger cunt’ cup runneth over.”'

I have a rather odd question:

I am primarily using SketchUp as the "base lineart" for digital paintings with other software. And what I could use are very basic 3D models of humans which I can pose. I realize that there are a lot of models of humans in the 3D warehouse, but many are 2D and most others are too complex for my purposes. I want something simple - the basic shape of the body and its limbs - which I can modify and pose in just the right position I need, so that I can then paint over it later.

What models can you recommend for this purpose?

A question to my readers:

What are, in your opinion, currently the best wiki farms/wiki providers out there?

The wiki I have in mind must be ad-free (even if that costs something), and ideally it should be possible to use a different domain name with it. Furthermore, comfortable integration of page templates is a big plus.

So here is a neat trick for doing 3D art with my #Cintiq , which I've learned from Jim Leggit's Drawing Shortcuts.

First, I start with the base floorplan of an area - in this case, the floorplan of a trade outpost which I had drawn earlier. Then I import the floorplan into Google #SketchUp   as the "ground layer" of a scene. Then I construct the basic building shapes on top of it - which is really easy with SketchUp.

Then I saved a perspective I liked and colored it purple, just to make sure that I would get rid of this computer-generated lineart in the end.

Finally, I imported the scene into SketchBook Pro on my Cintiq (Android Mode) and painted over it - which was much easier than figuring out the perspective manually.

I just stumbled across this today, but I strongly recommend reading this.

The whole #GamerGate situation is not an isolated incident - there have been numerous other attacks on prominent women in gaming which were just as bad, and unfortunately more will likely come in the future. This article provides some further context.

I am not often blindingly furious, but today I am. 

Kathy Sierra's writing has been very influential on me. When she was harassed off the Internet some years back, it was horrific.  When she came back, just a little bit, It was a sheer delight. 

Today she is gone again.  I cannot blame her, even a little bit. But I am sad and angry as all hell that it happened.___I just stumbled across this today, but I strongly recommend reading this.

I haven't stopped using my #Cintiq - I just used it for a different purpose as of late.

In particular, drawing maps for my role-playing game. These maps for the Trade Outpost in my #ColdFrontier campaign - the central "home base" of the player characters. Despite their look, they were entirely done digitally, and serve as a first sketch.

The grid in the background was initially created on my desktop with Inkscape in SVG format as a ready-made template and saved in PNG format. This was then imported into Corel's Painter Mobile app on the Android mode of my Cintiq Companion Hybrid, where I sketched over the grid on a separate layer to create the ground floor and exported the result.

Then I lowered the opacity of that layer to 30% and sketched the top floor on a different layer on top of this. I then made the layer with the ground floor... more »

I haven't stopped using my #Cintiq - I just used it for a different purpose as of late.

In particular, drawing maps for my role-playing game. These maps for the Trade Outpost in my #ColdFrontier campaign - the central "home base" of the player characters. Despite their look, they were entirely done digitally, and serve as a first sketch.

The grid in the background was initially created on my desktop with Inkscape in SVG format as a ready-made template and saved in PNG format. This was then imported into Corel's Painter Mobile app on the Android mode of my Cintiq Companion Hybrid, where I sketched over the grid on a separate layer to create the ground floor and exported the result.

Then I lowered the opacity of that layer to 30% and sketched the top floor on a different layer on top of this. I then made the layer with the ground floor invisible and exported the top floor.

I then copied and spliced the ground floor into a larger grid with GIMP on my desktop. This was again imported into my Cintiq - but instead of the Corel Painter App, I imported it into Autodesk's SketchBook Pro app, since the Painter App is sadly rather buggy when it comes to importing large images (though it has the better selection of brushes, which is the main reason I haven't switched to SketchBook Pro entirely. Then I sketched the outside parts of the compound.

Of course, since my eventual goal is publishing the Cold Frontier campaign as a Pathfinder module, I will eventually have to redo this sketch. For starters, I will have to rescale it from the current 1m grid to the standard 5ft grid of Pathfinder. I will also (of course) translate the labels into English, and ultimately want do do both a clean black&white printer friendly map and a map with a full-color background.

But that's still in future - there are still many other locations in the Cold Frontier which need their own maps.

"Police agencies have used hundreds of millions of dollars taken from Americans under federal civil forfeiture law in recent years to buy guns, armored cars and electronic surveillance gear. They have also spent money on luxury vehicles, travel and a clown named Sparkles.

The details are contained in thousands of annual reports submitted by local and state agencies to the Justice Department’s Equitable Sharing Program, an initiative that allows local and state police to keep up to 80 percent of the assets they seize."

This provides a clear incentive towards legally sanctioned highway robbery.

(Note: For the record, similar problems persist in Germany regarding attitudes towards the descendants of immigrants, with similar amounts of denial.)

This image has gathered a lot of attention over on Facebook, and I just loved reading the reactions from several thousands of American posters. These generally varied between (a) shock, (b) disbelief, (c) a strong desire to move to Germany, and (d) lofty proclamations that "nothing in life is free".

For the record, this statement is largely true, though not quite complete. For starters, it only applies to German public universities - the majority of them, although there are a number of minor private universities which do charge tuition fees (they tend to specialize in Law and Business degrees).

Secondly, it applies to all students, Germans and foreigners alike - not just Americans.

As for how all this is paid for... well, it's funded by the taxes of Germans and other residents in Germany, of course. But as a German taxpayer, I am completely okay with this. I... more »

As for how all this is paid for... well, it's funded by the taxes of Germans and other residents in Germany, of course. But as a German taxpayer, I am completely okay with this. I don't relish paying taxes, of course - but I was able to study for free when I was younger and used this to build a better life for myself. And now I support it that younger students get the same chances in life I had when I was their age - what comes around, goes around.

Incidentally, "no tuition fees" was actually the standard for decades, until a bunch of conservative politicians decided to introduce tuition fees (up to €500 per semester) in various German states, starting in 2006. But it was so unpopular with the public that one state after another abandoned the idea, until the last one (Lower Saxony) abolished them with the start of this term.

If you are curious about the necessary steps towards studying in Germany, I recommend starting with this website:

This goes for people in the IT fields in particular. Everyone wants to hire you and pay you top wages compared to other fields... until you hit 40 and suddenly nobody wants to know you any more.

Here is an idea for a magic system inspired by D&D 5e.

First of all, you can "learn" spells (standard GURPS Magic spells) by writing them down into your spellbook.

Each morning (each time after a good sleep), you would then prepare a limited number of spells you can cast that day. You can cast those spells as often as you want - fatigue/energy reserve permitting - but you can't prepare different spells until after the next time you sleep.

How would you price this system? Obviously, it's some kind of Modular Ability, but what is the Limitation here? 1/Day doesn't fit, since you can cast prepared spells repeatedly. Preparation Required also doesn't fit, since prepared spells dont become inaccessible after you have cast them.

Limiting them to Business Class I could see, but forcing them to take Coach would be stupid.

For many people - and I am an occasional business traveler myself - travel time is also work time. There are always documents to read, review, and write. But doing work is exceedingly difficult if you are in the extremely cramped Coach class (which is why I, living in Europe, prefer to take the train instead of flying whenever feasible).

The American people pay the members of Congress a lot of money to do their jobs. And many of these members of Congress tend to travel a lot as part of their jobs. Forcing them to have these big gaps in their work week which definitely don't count as relaxing free time is not an efficient use of their time - and thus, a waste of taxpayer money despite the "apparent savings" on airplane tickets.

This article discusses the rising number of American students in Berlin - 9,370 in 2012. However, I was surprised by one tidbit:

In oder to make the course credits they get in Germany transferable for their home universities, they still have to be registered at their home universities as students - and pay full tuition fees.

What kind of scam is this? What services do they draw upon that would justify such high payments?

A message to younger people:

I studied, was drafted into the military for a nine month term, was unemployed for 11 months, took a position as a PhD position / half-day scientific assistant with a 125% work day, worried about my future, and finally got an awesome job as a project manager in the field of renewable energies - completely different from my PhD.

I wish I could say that I posted this to give you some hope - but looking back, it is apparent to me how much luck, in addition to hard work, was involved, and I was born in 1975. I see the current job market, and worry about the prospects of the younger people - even in Germany, where student debt is not an issue. The high employment rates were bought with stagnating wages and a proliferation of sham temp jobs, and increasing automation will drive the wages of most people downwards.

I think I got on the right career path just in time and don't worry too much about my own career future - but I might be delusional. And people with less job-useful work experience than I am? Outside of some popular fields, they are likely screwed.

I am not telling you to give up, mind you. Getting that degree, doing those internships, building your experience will still all improve your career chances immensely. A small chance is still better than no chance.

But even if you do all the right things, it may not be enough. And then it won't be your fault - the economy has fundamentally changed, and don't let anyone else tell you differently.___
