Bienvenue ! Vous vous rappelez les blogs ? A une époque, ce site en était un. Maintenant, c’est surtout une archive de mes multiples comptes Twitter.

Pleased to see that a developer can find success with a modest team size and budget! []


“Journalists” need to end the asinine practice of inserting random tweets into articles as examples of “public opinion”. Was lazy before; now, it’s propaganda []


Opus Magnum has been updated with a new mini-campaign exploring “production alchemy”, which takes place in the confined spaces of production-grade transmutation engines! More details here: []

Just a simple change and my old, half-abandoned app that no one uses anymore will be much prettier.

Oh, turns out I also have to rewrite all of my terrible, outdated UI code because separating the cards into two images broke every single animation.

how is “we dont even wanna be married” an entire genre of wedding cake topper


Blanquer veut donc dans la même journée nous interdire d’utiliser l’écriture inclusive et de parler de racisme d’Etat, tout en voulant porter plainte pour diffamation contre un syndicat. Et toute l’assemblée applaudit ce déluge d’autoritarisme réactionnaire. Bravo la France 👍


‘Toy Story 4’ writer Rashida Jones left the project after John Lasseter made “an unwanted advance,” @THR reports: []

“Testers dropped the speaker from various heights and even threw it in a room with young kids.” What.

Bloomberg must be destroyed for the common good





Other “your perception of time is fucked up” facts: we lived closer to Tyrannosaurus than tyrannosaurus lives to stegosaurus. Betty White is older than factory-sliced bread. Oxford University is older than the founding of the Aztec Capitol of Tenochtitlán.


sometimes I sit around and think about how mammoths went extinct AFTER the pyramids were built and then I go “haha what the fuck”


Apparently, sometimes Google’s translation app mistakes facial features for translatable text.


A great analogy for understanding effects of social media on society: we are like the first city dwellers, subject to epidemics we don’t understand:



Today in tech doing that whole “this is not what you’re supposed to aspire to” thing again.

And for some reason this is all you, the person at home’s fault. You demanded bigger and better games! You demanded higher-res textures and 4K and more power! You demanded non-stop sale prices!

Did you, though?


Also, if you didn’t watch with the sound on the first time … watch again with sound on. You will die laughing some more, and also feel really bad for the producers.


I am CRYING. The Weather Channel set up for a live shot of the Georgia Dome being imploded, and at the perfectly wrong time … this happened (via @ajc):

Then Mass Effect 2 came and went and—we don’t talk about Mass Effect 3. But that first game’s ambition was so beautiful.

Among my top 10 games of all time, Mass Effect is still the one that was most tailor-made for me. Ambitious sci-fi world-building, interesting characters, accessible combat, that ‘70s/‘80s aesthetic. I still sometimes have chills listening to M4 (Part II).

Je continue de préférer You’re the Worst, mais j’avoue que cette saison de Crazy Ex-Girlfriend mérite un peu des éloges qu’elle a reçus pour son traitement de la maladie mentale.


Une femme quitte son flic de mec. Il tire sur elle, la sœur de cette dernière et sa mère. Il tue son père et deux gens qui passaient par là. Il se suicide ensuite.

Parle-t-on de violences conjugales ? Non, mais de suicides chez les flics 🙃

I tried the new “fixed human scale” mode again and, as much as I love Google Earth VR, it still doesn’t do it for me — at all. I don’t know if I need more pixels or I’ve just never dreamed of being Superman. As opposed to holding New York in the palm of my hand 😀

Coco VR is… pretty

Interactions are limited and pretty rough, but it’s a nice taste of what’s to come when the VR audience is really large enough to be worth the investment.

Je n’ai jamais été très doué pour le “cette corvée m’emmerde, je vais m’en débarrasser au plus tôt,” mais putain je ne savais pas que ça allait à ce point empirer avec l’âge.

I couldn’t figure out how to get the Music app to play an album without shuffle so I gave up and used Ecoute instead 🤦🏻‍♂️


Man in pub who has been mansplaining sexual harassment to me. Tells me me necklace gives me a certain Je ne sais quoi

Him:Do you know what je ne sais quoi means?

Me:I don’t know what.

Him:I’ll tell you. It’s a certain extra special something. I don’t know the literal translation


This has got to be the most wholesome tiddy mouse pad I have ever seen in my goddamn life lol @apocalyssart


What they say: “I will not follow an illegal nuclear launch order.”

What you hear: “Trump can’t launch nukes.”

What they meant: “I won’t nuke New York.”

Developers constantly build systems that assume bad actors will never act in concert and, by doing so, grant incredible powers to bad actors that act in concert []

On the one hand, this kind of comment. On the other, the Playstation blog helpfully reminding me why I just can’t.


That goes further than a misunderstanding brought on by an unfamiliarity with social interactions. That’s bigotry. And autism doesn’t cause bigotry, yet here he is, blaming it all on the world’s favorite cognitive boogeyman.

Banished is almost more of an idle game than a city builder but I just spent three hours in it and it is nicely zen (except when I feel bad for killing so many trees in order to build my silly little town)


What if I told you there was a way for the rich to no longer have to worry about their heads



Ca parait tellement dingue cette vente aux enchères de migrants que si ce n’était pas une info de @CNN j’aurais cru à un fake []



For the next six months, I’ll be visualizing my REM dreams every morning in #VR with #TiltBrush to analyze, expand, and unify them into a singular VR experience. This is a preview of one that I built in 3 days.

Watch in 4k: []


This is the detail of what just-in-time is in manufacturing today.

One hours worth of stock.

Wow. []


Meet @actorDougJones, one of the biggest stars you’ve probably never seen []


Adding a custom ¯\(ツ)/¯ button to your keyboard is the only worthwhile lifehack []


Je me demande s’il y a vraiment des pervers qui achètent 8 ou 9 tickets de métro aux distributeurs RATP


Me in November vs me in December


This is it. This is their end game. All the racism, Trumpism, fake news, and cruelty have been working up to this return on investment.


This is pure speculation but I bet an angry phone call from Disney is ultimately what prompted this more than anything else []

J’ai cassé ma dernière assiette creuse Ikea en début de semaine ; impossible d’en trouver en taille adulte dans un autre magasin. Comment mangent les gens qui n’ont pas de voiture ?!

Nice, for VR games Humble gives the choice between Steam or Oculus keys. (Keep Talking… is 4€, might as well get it even if I never have the opportunity to play.)

Alone with my thoughts

or am i… i guess



This thread on lootboxes is pretty much 100% spot-on. []


Ok hear me out: an LA Noire/Blade Runner game except you’re an exorcist identifying demons by finding signs & tells in dialogue, and then you have to expel them from their hosts in unique ways across different cases.

Someone make that. I will buy it day one.

Oh, hey, did you know how fucked we truly are?

I, for one, hope to be killed by climate change before we get concentration camps in western Europe again.


“De mon temps” la “bibliothèque rose” s’adressait aux plus jeunes, la “verte” à des enfants plus grands. Maintenant rose c’est les filles, verte les garçons. Wtf.

How bad must the Google Pixel Buds’ UX be that every review I’ve seen complains emphatically about it.

Ma caisse de retraite envoie sur un formulaire de paiement tiers qui me demande uniquement mon IBAN. Comment c’est possible ? Quelle sécurité il y a ? 😨


Corrigez moi si je me trompe mais je crois que youporn était pas hyper populaire à l’époque. Non ce qui cause les viols ce n’est pas le porno, c’est une culture qui ne valorise pas la moitié des habitants de cette planète.


Alors Gmail, je sais que si c’est gratuit c’est moi le produit mais tu vas te calmer tout de suite sur le ton employé.


Porno, blagues et dragues lourdes… pas facile d’être une femme à l’école 42 [] par @marion_garr et @marineprotais


Al Capone theory: People who engage in sexual harassment are also likely to steal, plagiarize, embezzle, etc. These are the actions of someone who feels entitled to other people’s ideas, bodies, money []

You can now lose verified status for : all the things that should already get your account shut down (but almost never do)

What will be the first landmark or monument designed explicitly to provide opportunities for projection mapping? Time to bring back brutalist architecture.


That’s interesting: Animoji not only works with your face, but also with video files!

So no 3D sensing required?


Apple, you’re killin me with the mismatched apostrophe curliness of the default, non-editable names of your peripherals.


Idea: What if Flash in the Justice League moved at 48fps in an otherwise 24fps movie? (I guess his scenes would be shot at 48, downsampled to 24 except his roto cutout, then projected at 48). Might it look cool? Or bad like he was not actually shot in the same scene? // @tvaziri?


A partir de la sordide affaire Ramadan, Manuel Valls aura donc réussi l’exploit de dresser des journalistes les uns contre les autres, et surtout de faire oublier le sujet premier : les violences faites aux femmes. Bravo.

Je ne sais plus qui dans ma timeline a recommandé You Again, mais il est plus que temps d’interdire aux hommes d’écrire ou réaliser des films avec des personnages principaux féminins.

TIL que l’app de la Banque Postale gère Touch ID, il faut “juste” aller l’activer au fin fond des options.

How did adding images to a project become so excruciatingly slow in Xcode 9?

I guess I should be grateful 9.1 doesn’t forget which targets I checked anymore.


Watching a viper instinctively bury itself in sprinkles is how I started this morning []

Whether consciously or not, EA just did that with Battlefront. Everyone rejected the original system, they went “Cool, it’s now an arbitrary 75% better,” and I’m already seeing people say the core issue is “fixed.”


There’s a story about Team America where the first cut submitted for a rating had a 10-minute graphic puppet sex scene, reason being they knew it would get an X rating but if they then cut it to a reasonable length and resubmitted it would probably get an R.


Le fondateur multi-milliardaire d’Alibaba s’offre un moyen métrage où il se tape contre les stars du ciné chinois.



In case you wonder: Here’s a picture of how the Amazons looked in Wonder Woman…next to pic how they look in Justice League. First designed by Lindy Hemming, second by Michael Wilkinson.

Some steps backwards, methinks.



- Get a Great Idea

- Start writing the story

- Carefully fix any plot holes

- Realize there are infinite plot holes

- Throw away the story


With cannabis legal in so many states, why isn’t there a cable news show that spends an hour a week exploring the changes this brings about? Such a large change, an end to Prohibition, seems there would be quite a bit of interesting stuff to discuss about it.

Of course I would only find out right after finishing Opus Magnum that you can rotate several parts together by pressing A or D while dragging them.


Netflix should experiment with bringing back staggered episode releases of marquee shows but instead of once a week do it every night

Problem binge model is inability to carry the conversation

Stranger Things s3 dropping nightly over a period of 9 nights is a cultural DDOS

I got Scandinavia when it was on sale and it looks great

It might have been a better idea not to include the single-player “story mode” in For Honor’s free weekend 💤

Tweetbot’s Reply button should be a different glyph whether the person follows you back (you’re conversing with someone you ‘know’) or not (you’re commenting on a stranger’s post).


Nice discussion of the improved Street View image blending work the team’s done. Jaggies-be-gone. []

It hadn’t occurred to me but I’m suddenly wondering if 280-character tweets are implemented server-side as threads of two tweets.


Two months ago, Louis CK had said his accusers were spreading “rumors.” His fans continued to revere him. Under pressure, he has now confessed and awaits patiently his redemption. There is a script, and men know it by heart.


Never forget that Louis CK spent YEARS saying—to the world and his victims who were listening—that nothing happened and he didn’t care


Small reminder that any story about Japan that says “wacky/weird thing X is a huge thing in Japan!” means that thing exists in one place, and nobody in Japan has heard of it.


I always feel like it’s a good idea, as an indie, to swim towards X when AAA declares X dead or stupid business-wise.

- if they’re mostly right, that’s ok, I need far fewer customers.

- if they’re mostly wrong, that’s very ok, I’ll do well til they realise.


PLEASE read this story about a guy throwing his steak out a window i promise it’s the beat thing u will see all day

As a side note — as great as your game is, as proud as you can be of your work, do NOT trap me in a VR headset with a long, unskippable (unless you quit) credit sequence.

I’d say Lone Echo is twice as long as its limited gameplay warrants, but what a great, polished VR experience. Not the slightest motion sickness, and the realism of those hand animations does so much for immersion.

TWITTER: verification is not an “indicator of importance.”

ALSO TWITTER: we verify accounts that are in the “public interest.”

Facebook could have said: “Here’s a tool for you to create hashes of anything you’re afraid someone might post in revenge. Send us the hashes and if we see matching posts we’ll evaluate their content then and take them down if needed.”


Not everyone calls it the #notch you know. Some call it the #unibrow. #iphonex []


Imagine what the reaction would have been a year ago if Rose McGowan had said, “I’m surrounded by secret ex-Mossad agents who are taping our conversations and trying to destroy me”

Tweetbot for Mac 2.5.4 is now available on the Mac App Store with support for up to 280 characters. (Tweeting 140 characters or less is still fully supported.)



An iPad app with a full menu bar… 😶


Just thought about the reality of 280 emojis so I hope you’re ready for Cher’s Twitter to turn into the Bayeux Tapestry.


The next release of Tweetbot 4 for iOS and Tweetbot 2 for Mac will support the newly expanded Tweet length limit.

What’s the over-under now on third-party apps ever being allowed to post 280s?

God damn. Buy a cheap keyboard from China; it might turn out to have a keylogger installed []

Godsdammit a new gestural UX is the dumbest possible reason to get a 1200-euro phone upgrade

It’s really X as in UX. Face ID + much welcome reboot of interactions that piled up awkwardly over ten years = temptation rising 😬

If I were still interested in 4.7” iPhones I’d be tempted—mostly for Face ID—but not at this price. And thankfully I’m too used to 5.5” now.

The X is… fine 🤷🏻‍♂️ Too fat, too much bezel, screen doesn’t look that extraordinary to me. But, yes, the notch is okay in person.


This looks like a mad sesh till you find out it’s a combine harvester in a cotton field
