Two things on hypothetical technologies

1. How a Videogame God Inspired a Twitter Doppelgänger — and Resurrected His Career

3D adventure game where you have amnesia and wake up in a gigantic museum where every room is devoted to a year of your life.

I also love the idea of playing a character who is PRETENDING to be blind, so you have to keep bumping into things to not arouse suspicion.

“Maybe it’s just friendship inside the cube,” Lucas offers. “Just the word friendship.”

2. Notes Toward Apps To Reconnect Me (And/Or Other People) with (My) Childhood

App that uses Google Maps API to require user, at a certain point in the middle of the afternoon, regardless of what “important” thing user is doing, to go outside for an hour. GPS functionality enables app to verify that user has gone outside; if user has not gone outside within five minutes of being asked or if user comes back inside more than five minutes before the hour time limit is up, app “takes away your toys” (randomly deletes entertainment apps from the user’s mobile device) and/or blocks access to user’s email and messaging apps (“time out” mode).
