BBC Two: Back in Black, Terry Pratchett

Back in Black

The BBC says:

When the writer Sir Terry Pratchett died in 2015, he was working on one last story – his own. But Terry’s Alzheimer’s meant he never got to finish it.

This poignant and humorous film starring Paul Kaye as Terry finally tells the story of this hugely popular author, creator of Discworld, whose books have sold over 85 million copies worldwide. Back in Black reveals Terry’s road to success was not always easy, from his troubled schooldays to being dismissed by literary critics, to his battle with Alzheimer’s. But knighted by the Queen, adored by millions of fans and with a legacy of 41 much-loved novels – Terry Pratchett is still having the last laugh.

This is happening next Saturday, at 9pm UTC.

How Immigration Uncertainty Threatens America’s Tech Dominance

Actually, really bad.

 

The WSJ’s outlook on the american tech industry is not so good.

Actually, really bad.

Christopher Mims writes:

Venture capitalists, executives and engineers I spoke to consistently made the same argument: In 2017, politicians who try to unduly impede the free movement of tech workers stand to deprive their home country of revenue and employment, as well as all the additional support, service and administrative jobs each of those highly paid workers creates in a community.

Maia

Maia seems to be Cities: Skylines in Space, in hard mode

Maia seems to be a “Cities: Skylines in Space” type of game, in hard mode. It is currently in Steam Early Access with mixed reviews, and it seems to be pretty weird.

How weird? This weird. That’s one before Dwarf Fortress, I presume.

If you are content with buying games outside of steam, it’s on sale right now. The I don’t want to live on this planet any more sale. “Because death in space is preferable to news right now.”

Tumblr of the day

Tumblr of the day is… a wordpress, “A damsel in this dress”, for the blog title and for this image.

Sidesaddle on a motorbike is as awesome as the blog title.
