[CPU] Anyone Can Now Join My 24/7 Chat Room

Remember IRC? Well, Today's Nerds Live in Discord!

Greetings, Programs!

There was a time when I live streamed video 24/7 in my home office (now affectionately dubbed my ‘playshop’ - because ‘workshop’ sounds as snooze-worthy as ‘home office’). I never really stopped live streaming or chatting, I just wasn’t able to do it as regularly as I could have or should have.

I’m trying - really, I’m trying - to get into a groove, to find a sweet spot between that which interests me, that which interests people who are interested in me, and that which is interesting enough to yap-yap-yap with any degree of consistency.

Then, I did something crazy last night:

In all the madness of letting you know that I was still alive, I effectively made my previously-private-and-super-exclusive Discord chat server public - in the hopes of trying a different approach to bring shape to conversations I hope to continue to have with people like you. So, you can join the chat room, too!

Oh, I did another crazy thing the other day as well:

Okay, that’s enough crazy for one week. Or is it?

[CPU] What Does Chewbacca Taste Like?

Greetings, Programs!

I keep publishing new live videos every day, and I know you keep missing them - so, here’s an incomplete roundup of recent events. No technology was harmed in the production of these streams, but technology was definitely used! A lot of tech, really. So much tech. Good tech, obvs.

[CPU] Geeks at Galaxy's Edge

Greetings, Programs!

If you follow me throughout social media, you’ll know that I’m not quite dead yet. In fact, this past week, I was very much alive. I’ve been busy - just awakened by the Force of Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland.

The whole experience made me jealous of those who get to talk about (or “do”) nothing but Star Wars as a full-time job. I have half a mind to convert this newsletter’s content focus top-to-bottom to such intergalactic goodness. The other half of my mind wonders what you’d think about that.

Anyway, here are all the Star Wars Galaxy Edge videos I did over the past few days:

See? I told you I’ve been busy.

[CPU] Return of the Chat Room

Well, Kinda (in Spirit)

Greetings, Programs!

As much as I want to write prolifically, it seems my days (and nights) pull me in umpteen directions. That’s a number between bleen and eighteen.

If you missed the news, I’ve been recently tapped by Intel to help lead community efforts around graphics and visual experiences - a task I’ve not taken lightly. While I can’t talk about the things I can’t talk about, there’s plenty more to talk about - like the Discord server we set up for chat. You’re welcome to join me there, certainly.

This might explain why I’ve not been “talking tech” as you’ve come to expect lately. I’m still serving the greater user community, but (as I pointed out in the aforelinked post) I’m now attempting to change the industry from the inside out.

Easier said than done.

What’s even easier? Having fun online every weekend.

Yours Digitally,

[CPU] Had You Some Gadget Deals

Greetings, Programs!

I know not everyone likes the things that I like, so… here are some things you might like (at prices you may like even more). I honestly don’t know, but each of the following links are referrals.

And none of them are Star Wars related.

Don’t forget to tip your sponsor.
