  1. The corona virus outbreak sparked a scathing report on the treatment of seniors in five Ontario nursing homes by the Canadian Military. But to those of us with relatives in some of these facilities, the report is not a surprise. https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Don-t-Grow-Old-in-Canada/MBMsqrm3C
  2. Sage walls aren't just for defense. Here's a short guide on how to use her ice-walls for rapid bomb plants and aggressive area denial: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Sage-Wall-Spots-for-Bind-in-Valorant/x3VxI2QK7
  3. With the inclusion of overpowered aim-assist features in games like Modern Warfare, is it fair to enable crossplay between PC and Console gamers? Find out more in my Coil post: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Aim-Assist-in-Video-Games/yXtBk4Xo4
  4. From Youtube to Twitter the XRP community has been the target of odd and often contradictory content moderation policies. Find out more in my latest coil post: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/XRP-and-Mass-Media-Censorship/cGfYSNVCT
  5. Valorant is a top-shelf competitive first person shooter. Read my full review on Coil.
  6. Can our interconnected world survive the COVID-19 pandemic? https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Covid-19-The-Death-Knell-of-Globalism-/dNh4HNtBE
  7. Does Doom Eternal live up to the hype? Find out in my latest Coil post: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Doom-Eternal-Review-/18e-9wfl7
  8. People are socialized to enter information on setup of a new application like that. The majority of novice computer users don't think twice about it. If that thing was on the chrome web store I think google bares some responsibility towards allowing an extension like that on their app store. Imagine allowing an attacker to create a fake "bank of America" app on the chrome webstore. It'd be almost the same thing.
  9. One of my first articles on coil was about the potential of ripple powered Forte gaming marketplace. Forte has since announced a number of new studios that will be integrating the Forte blockchain platform in their games. One of those in particular is very promising.

  10. How does Call of Duty: Warzone stack up against other battle royale games. Find out in my review: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Call-of-Duty-Warzone-Review/L3lob7zQ
  11. I think it depends on the extent to which they want to divest themselves from validation and governance. The metaphor I would use is teaching someone to ride a bike for the first time without training wheels. If you let them go too early they'll likely lose control and fall, and since we're not yet at a point of widespread adoption of Ripple tech, it's probably a bad idea to switch off all of the Ripple run validators. The no incentive model is particularly interesting to me in light of what happened to steemit, with the exchanges staking tokens that weren't theirs and hijacking the governance process. I'm very curious to see how Ripple's decentralization mechanism plays out over time.
  12. I wrote an article about their concerns on Coil a while back: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/XRP-Governance-and-Incentives-/nyNYK3Th From what I saw on twitter, Galgitron seemed to think some of her concerns were unwarranted and/or fud. I can't say why it devolved into personal attacks, other than speculation on the general toxicity of twitter.
  13. Spacehulk: Deathwing is a cooperative shooter that's a blast to play with friends. My full review on Coil: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Spacehulk-Deathwing/4ka78QMs
  14. I saw what I thought was a rather ridiculous statistical analysis on the link between between twitter volume and XRP price, and I though I'd make a post about it: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Parachutes-Airplanes-and-XRP/piQOWSy7
  15. My latest coil post discusses the XRP validator drama in light of David Schwartz's presentation at the The Stanford Blockchain Conference: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/XRP-Governance-and-Incentives-/nyNYK3Th
