  • Lifting the Fog of War
    The main problem with strategy games is that point where you have definitely won but you still have to play out the last 30% of the match. This is more of a look at why it happens and also why it is so hard to design against it.
  • Still Not exactly Sure Why These Are Popular
    I have always been curious why people make those videos where the video speeds up whenever a certain event happens. They seem an unusually high amount of work for an extremely limited payoff.
  • The Life of Gregor MacGregor Sounds Utterly Made Up By A Lazy Writer
    But this video is mostly a little postscript about the life and work of Simón Bolívar. The discussion the end about salutary neglect is a very interesting jumping off point for a larger discussion about history.
