Murmeltiertag: Nur einen Tag nach #Halle0910 führen die Medien wieder #Computerspiele ins Feld (hier @zeitonline).

Aber die strukturellen Sinnzusammenhänge bleiben unausgesprochen [Thread]
Es ist die Rede von Ego-Shooter-Ästhetik, von Achievements und vom Live-Stream der Tat auf einer Gaming-Plattform.

Aber: Games werden von vielen gespielt, gestreamt werden bei Twitch nicht nur Spiele und Gamification ist überall.

Das sind Oberflächenmerkmale. #Halle0910
Warum fühlte sich der Täter in der "Welt der Gamer" wohl? Weshalb wählte er die Ästhetik? Warum entschied er sich für Achievements, die seine Leistungen belohnen sollten?

Die Antwort liegt nicht in der Oberfläche (Games), sondern in Tiefenstrukturen. #Halle0910

Okay, so let me talk about Mario for a minute here. I realize there's a difference between the American and Japanese understanding of the character and there always has been, but Mario was originally presented as a blue collar worker. 1/?
Yes, there's the plumber thing, but he was also a construction worker in Wrecking Crew and I guess a carpenter in Donkey Kong. Very blue collar. He started making cameos in other games, but it was like, a boxing ref. 2/?
It's the original Mario Bros. that cast him as a plumber but I guess he was an Evil Animal Trainer in Donkey Kong Jr.? I dunno if Animal Trainer is as "salt of the earth" as being a construction worker, but it's no office job. 3/?

We create #games & #simulations at @fovlabs to improve public policy. These tools are meant to help us live with the #complexity around us. The journey to create a non-academic research space in India hasn't been easy. #payitforward (1/n)
How do you create a space that helps address the complex problems we face as a society? How do you create tools to facilitate dialogue with stakeholders? How do you build bridges? How do you grapple with diversity without paying lip-service? #payitforward (2/n)
These were just a few questions that we were interested in, what we needed was somebody to listen to us, bounce some ideas off, support us financially, and just be there for us. #payitforward (3/n)

The capacity to compartmentalize may be an overlooked important psychological construct with positive implications for subjective #wellbeing #ThursdayThoughts
It may be related to the capacity for #play, one of the most under-appreciated activities to enhance subjective #happiness & adaptation.

No evidence: the drug wore off, he used a condom, she woke up confused and drove home after the humiliating conversation. They were friendly the day before and she accepted his offer to stay over instead of taking the road so late. No witnesses. The perfect #crime. #FicFri
Overdose survived. She flirted with him until he invited her over again. She denied him nothing in bed, she was #obsequious. “I’ve got a surprise”, she said, and massaged his feet as he sipped the wine she gave him. He died of sepsis a week later. #vss365 #AmWriting
“He committed #treason against the sacred dojo. He disgraced the sport”, they said. “Perhaps. I am still going to the cremation ceremony. We must protect our art and not speak ill of a dead coach”, she said. “If he has a #soul, it will burn in hell”, they said. #FP #FridayKiss
