There’s a thread over at io9 where two posters are calling each other dumbfuck and beta troll for all to see, while I sit here celebrating 5+ years in the grey.
I believe we have surpassed the point in time where technology makes it necessary for us to have a system where people are “forced” to work.
So many spoilers from the mid season finale for sure and this article is also kind of NSFW if alien plastic nipples count. (And they should.)
A great short film directed by Ignacio F. Rodó.
I, like many of the others around these parts, have been a member of the io9 community for many years now (I myself started back in the heady days of Spring 2011) and one of the things I always loved about the place was not only the friendly community atmosphere but also the willingness to talk about all kinds of…
The Wheel never stops turning, it’s time to be somewhere else.
So recently, my favorite sc-fi blog did an announcement about a new sci-fi show... The whole article was a junior-high school-level snark-fest about how the show’s title was similar to another show’s title. No big deal, just a throw-away little article like on so very many other similar blogs...
We haven’t had one of these for a while, but I miss them from the old days, so if you’re interested I’d like 40< words about any of these images.
I know there was some really ugly drama last year, and the less said about that the better... Like the esoteric ranchers say “Drama’s for llamas!”
Smoke rises from a boiling world; the hour grows late as Denton rides to bankruptcy to save his company. Amid all the turmoil, politics, controversy, and uncertainty, you find yourself here. It can mean only one thing. You’re an io9er and that makes you mighty.
CJA announced on Twitter that she’s stepping down as editor of io9 to work on her next novel and that Rob Bricken is taking over.
I’m not sure if anyone on this site will see my post, but this is the creepiest fucking video I’ve ever watched and it’s dead on-topic for io9. Do a story about this; I want to see the group cringe.
So, before my most recent trip to France, I upgraded my old iPhone. I loved the 5, and I was not terribly excited about the protruding lens and the size of the 6s. But, after living a few months with a broken screen—and Apple changing their policy about accepting broken screen iPhones for trade-ins—I took the plunge.
**THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS MASSIVE SPOILERS FOR EPISODE VII. DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE MOVIE! THANKS!**
Because the below post shared Groupthink is a bit too panicky, here’s what Annalee and Charlie Jane have to say:
Thus far, I’ve had three theories that I’ve pushed forward from the Flash/Arrow Universe. None of them ever amounted into anything but the ramblings of a very lonely and confused internet hermit. However... this time... I’m going to blow you away by not having really any proof at all to back up my claims! (Crowd…
**WARNING**Contains spoilers for Continuum series finale.
Update 1 (09/01/2015): So, I only played the game for a few hours last night (including that 1 1/2 hour opening) so I haven’t gotten into the nuts and bolts too much yet, but so far I’ve got to say that the Mercenaries feel isn’t there yet. I’m still sure it will get there, but so far I’ve only just developed C4 and…
