My peeps, take this to heart. You’re damaging your community (both its growth and sustainability *and* the individual folks who belong to it) by sticking all the important stuff just in Discord

Puzzled Pint is back tomorrow night at Bohemian's, Indiranagar

The Bored Ape NFT team hosted an event in Hong Kong where they blasted attendees with UV light, giving them (temporary) eye damage.

Crypto is a gift that keeps on giving.

I have been working on Puzzmo, in secret, for almost two years now with @orta.

Puzzmo is *the* place to play daily newspaper puzzle games online.

TODAY we are launching a brand new daily crossword (designed to be approachable like all of my games) alongside with 2 other new games from me (and 3 older ones reimagined)

During prelaunch we only let in 500 people a day, so get at em!

I hope you enjoy Puzzmo!

Weathering With You was so so good. Watching it in the theater was absolutely worth waiting for.

Has anyone here had good experiences with generative AI writing code? I've tried GitHub Copilot and ChatGPT, and I haven't had much confidence in the output aside from trivial things.

And then I see stuff like this and I'm wondering if I'm the dumb one in this ecosystem 🤔

I'm so impressed with the turn out this year for Puzzled Pint. It's been 100+ people every month since December 2022. Meetup(dot)com for all it's issues atleast once in while pops off.

In the last issue, I shared a type tour of Indiranagar, my old neighbourhood in Bangalore, and put together a small showcase of Kannada newspaper nameplates from my collection
