About Linda Breneman
Linda learned to play video games as a way to connect with her teenaged kids, and then she learned to love video games for their own sake. At Pixelkin she wrangles the business & management side of things, writes posts as often as she can, reaches out on the social media, and does the occasional panel or talk. She lives in Seattle, where she writes, studies, plays video games, spends time with her family, consumes vast quantities of science fiction, and looks after her small cockapoo. She loves to hear from people out there. You can read more about her at her website,
Linda Breneman.com or her family foundation’s website, ludusproject.org.
3, 2015 Terraforming is complete. The fences are placed. Administrative staff is happy, buzzing away in their newly-zoned facility. This is it. This one will be perfect. But no, work halts: An error message. The face on your screen is not one you recognize. It’s definitely not Dr. Wright. "Ah ahh ahh." You dismiss it. "Ah ahh ahh. Ah ahh ahh." Your clicks are drowned out by a barrage of dick picks and photos of cartoon cat butts.
Games Discussed: Life is Strange, Neko Atsume, Cobra Club, Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, Team Fortress 2, Axiom Verge

For our 200th anniversay Schepp, Anselm and Stefan invited Jeremy Keith. Enjoy our excessive talk about the Indie Web!
[00:00:39] The Indie Web Building Blocks Jeremy explains what’s the meaning behind the whole indie web term and why it exists. He continues to explain the technical basics: Decentralizing sources, authenticate on websites using your very own website and a social network of choice, sharing links to your blog posts to the social networks and getting mentions from twitter etc on your website and store them there. You can do this with just one requirement: if you have your own domain. It even can work on static sites and there are open source services like Bridgy that help you with concatenating the external sources.
[00:22:57] IndieWebCamps We talk about the people who are part of the indiewebcamp thing and how it’s been created. It was created to create solutions and not only discuss stuff. We also speak about how to teach people about indie technology, how to learn to integrate it and where you can do so. Finally we talk about content ownership and the problem with external services who own your content and do what they want with it (like deleting it even if you don’t want to, thanks archive.org for storing things anyways). And Jeremy shares his first website version. If you are considering going to the upcoming beyond tellerand in Düsseldorf (which you should), be aware that there’s an accompanying IndieWebCamp happening.
[00:48:23] Useless Design Patterns We’re talking about false assumptions of security which often have heavy impact on usability. Like on login screens when there’s only a generic error message not saying if username or password is wrong. We speak about if passwords should be shown by default to avoid the ‘confirm password’ fields and typing errors and most of the time people are in private and if not, they should be able to switch to hidden type mode. We also talk about captchas which are non-sense. In fact we should always ask ourselves why are we doing this or wait a minute, is this really a good idea? And test with real users to figure out what works and what doesn’t. Because assumptions by us is often simply wrong..

I recently had a wonderful conversation with Sid O’Neill about work and choice and a few other things. We talked a bit about the possibilities and consequences of following your passion instead of working at a regular job. Sid and I have both done freelance work and worked regular jobs in a variety of companies, so we’ve lived both sides of the debate.
This all started when Harry tweeted about Garrick’s cartoon and conversations broke out on Twitter and on App.net. Everybody seemed to have an opinion, but some important considerations were overlooked. Does “stop punching the clock” mean you should up and quit your job? What do you really need for a full life? Is freelance work really all that freeing?
