Really sad that people think "nerdy fantasy and dragons" when they think about role-playing games. Case in point: through the brilliant Jason Morningstar I just learned about a fascinating new RPG about dying languages. It's called Dialect and it's on Kickstarter right now.

From what I understand it's about inventing the story of a small, isolated community that has their own language/dialect, invent words for that language and see the community change over time, the language evolve, and, finally, the language die. Of course, this can be placed in any setting (a jungle, another planet, ...).

The linguist in me is super-excited. I think I'll buy it, even if I may never get the chance to play. I'm sure reading the book is going to be worth the price!

\#PGP #creator backs #Openbook, a #KickStarter #privacy-first #alternative to #Facebook


People fed up with Facebook will have yet another privacy-oriented social network which they’ll be able to join soon. The new offering, Openbook, is set to begin a KickStarter campaign on Tuesday and is already gaining support from experts such as Philip Zimmermann, the creator of PGP encryption, and Jaya Baloo, the chief information security officer at the Dutch telecoms company KPN Telecom.

"With the Face Off Hat you can be confident that any photos taken of you with or without your permission will not be exposing your facial data to the networks that scan, and use your data for their own purposes. Help us release the Face Off Hat to the world and issue in a new era of bioprotection."

Unfortunately it looks like reaching the goal is too far away. But still some days to go.
