"Facebook profile information that is publicly visible by default, for the first five years of the service" via What Is Public? — The Message — Medium

Programmers and engineers who create software with controls for privacy have moved in recent years to an on/off model where content is either viewable to the entire world or only to a list of people whom a user identifies as “friends”. Obviously, reducing public status to a binary consideration is convenient for a medium where everything must ultimately be represented in binary code. But we can’t let society’s norms be defined by which features are least expensive for storing on a database server in the cloud.

This is precisely why my trust in Facebook has diminished over the last five years.

Swordfighting in the high grass.

In a fast-paced fighting game where understanding the state of your opponent is important, anything that inhibits that understanding changes how you play the game. Nidhogg’s beautifully deforming tall grass does that in a very interesting, mechanical way.

The grass has three states: still (where it is actually moving very slightly, but opaque over all the body area but the head), disturbed (where it is still upright but allows visibility via gaps), and flattened (where the view of the characters is entirely undisturbed). The game switches between these states based on the motion of the players through the space.
