Don't you love it when you check your email, and there, nestled among the newsletters you regret having signed up for, notices of available billing statements and requests for assistance in transferring large sums of money, you find a missive that warms your heart? I do. One came yesterday from Brian Rapp, who tells me that he was inspired by Sarcasmo's Interactive Fiction. He said that his own work, Orevore Courier was written as a tribute to her.
I am constantly amazed by how many people she touched. Although they never met, Brian tapped right into the Sarcasmo vibe, His game has pirates, and zombies, and zombie pirates!
Just today I heard about this exhibit at the MoMA. I think Sarcasmo would have made plans for a trip to NYC.
I was searching for a Thanksgiving themed Original Sarcasmo , but mostly she just mentioned that she was full. This one is from the Monday after the holiday. Enjoy both. The post and your turkey.
A few posts back I told you Sarcasmo's theory about babies. That they are born with all the knowledge of the world but no way to communicate it. The knowledge eventually slips away as the babies acquire motor and language skills, until it is gone forever. Basically, we learn it out of them.
Sarcasmo Jr. sent me the link to this video. As I listened to the very entertaining Sir Ken Robinson espouse his theories on education, I could not help but notice a similar premise.
The video is 20 minutes long, but I enjoyed every minute. Let me know what you think about it.
