ABSTRACT: the "drake frowning with hand up"/"drake smiling and pointing" images have been used to great effect as an approval/disapproval meme format. however, it cannot express ambivalence or a progression between the two reactions. in this paper, i argue for the importance of ambivalence signifiers in approval/disapproval meme formats. in support of this stance, i use GAN technology to create a matching image of drake in the πŸ€” "thinking emoji" pose and demonstrate its improvement of the meme.

This is a fantastic video about tech elites and how business-friendly, "win-win" changes are often a poor substitute for real, effective change. I've watched this like 3 times and it's so good: youtube.com/watch?v=d_zt3kGW1N

Dig Dug is a screwed-up game.

Look at other games from the same general era, and you'll see the difference:

SPACE INVADERS
Aliens have arrived from outer space and they're REALLY UNFRIENDLY. Fortunately they're also REALLY DUMB. Defend the Earth!

BURGER TIME
You play a guy making burgers by walking all over them. You're just trying to do your job but the food keeps hassling you, man!

@LibertyPaulM@linuxrocks.online that one makes sense because low latency is important in those cases. But for just listening to recordings, latency shouldn't matter at all
