7 Rules for a New Era of Communications

During the pandemic, economic crisis, racial tensions and partisan arguments that have marked 2020, we have started communicating differently. We even have new words and phrases to reflect these times: We “doomscroll,” poring over bad headlines. We protect meetings from “Zoom-bombings” and give “elbow bumps.” We even write emails with more thought. A tossed-off phrase like “Hope you’re having a great summer” can sound tone-deaf to recipients who may be sick or have lost a loved one, or who may b...

Remote physical gaming site raises a $2.5M seed round

I was made aware of’s work earlier this year when the site released a Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit tournament. Nintendo’s IRL take on its popular racing title was a great showcase for the technology — though, admittedly, there was enough lag in the remote operation to make control something of an issue. Of course, Mario Kart is just one of the experiences the platform offers. It’s a pretty broad range, all told, from pinball to battling robots to claw machines. The diversity of ...

Practically speaking, it’s nearly impossible to offer a real review of Cyberpunk 2077, the long-awaited follow-up to The Witcher 3 from developer CD Projekt Red. In the first place, it’s so big that the few days I’ve had with it aren’t enough to realistically evaluate the game; second, it’s so buggy and janky now that it feels wrong to review it before it becomes the game I know it will be; and finally, everyone’s going to buy it anyway. The Witcher 3 is among the most universally lauded games o...
