A Goddamn Miracle: American Gods, “The Bone Orchard” | Tor.com

I totally agree with this review of the first episode of American Gods. It was, in many ways, a triumph! What seemed unfilmable has started off with an impressive bang. Now, can it sustain its strong start? I sure hope so.

 

If you're really, truly cheering this outcome, take your selfishness with you and click on the "unfriend" button. Shame on you.

 
 

Tim Bray on Blogging in 2017

Replied to a post on tbray.org:

Thank you, Tim, for still blogging, and owning your own identity on the web. Your presence makes it more vibrant, unique, and diverse.

The great dan­ger is that the Web’s fu­ture is mall-like: No space re­al­ly pub­lic, no store­fronts but na­tion­al brands’, no vi­su­als com­posed by am­a­teurs, noth­ing that’s on of­fer just for its own sake, and for love.

This sentence in particular resonated with me. I want the web to be a massive, interconnected network of independant thinkers, businesses, artists, communicators, individuals, etc., not just a collection of brands shouting into the void, hoping to attract consumers.
