Components: The game contains 84 large illustrated cards (roughly 3″ x 5″), 6 wooden rabbit tokens, 36 cardboard voting tokens (numbered 1 to 6 in each color). The box serves as the scoring track and holds the cards and bits in the center, which means the box is much larger than it needs to be, but it’s pretty cute and works well while you’re playing the game. The cards themselves are standard cardstock and I believe I’ve already mentioned how lovely the illustrations are. The size does make the cards a bit difficult to shuffle, but on the other hand they don’t really need to be shuffled much anyway.
Although the British-based company offers reduced prices for AIDS drugs sold in the developing world, the foundation claims the drug manufacturer still charges twice as much as its competitors, an allegation GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) counters by noting it makes no profits on those sales.
Schlough: We have not had thousands, but we’ve had hundreds (for each game), and we’re pretty psyched about that. If we truly enhance the experience – if fans find it’s of value to be able to access those scores, stats and videos during the game – they’ll continue to bring it. If it totally flops, it didn’t hurt to try.
Once upon a time the actor Brendan Fraser made a somewhat awkward clapping motion at an awards show … and it became the go-to GIF response for any manner of random message board posting. Poor guy may never want to cheer again.
Stamets has received numerous patents on the extracts in the past year, and he plans to sell them on his website, fungi.com, a domain he says he has owned since 1994. “I’m not in this for the money,” he says. “I walk my talk, and I use my business to fund further research.”
“All my clients use GitHub,” says Wang (his firm also happens to be GitHub’s legal counsel). “My clients, when they’re interviewing engineers, they’re reviewing stuff on GitHub. And GitHub, to me, seems to be replacing the resumes used for engineers.”
The justices ruled: “When a nation is at war, many things that might be said in time of peace are such a hindrance to its effort that their utterance will not be endured so long as men fight and that no court could regard them as protected by any constitutional right.”
“The (filmmaking) model right now has been in place for a long time,” Groth said. “The money gets shuffled around in old-fashioned ways. People recognize that the future will be vastly different. New systems will be put in place, but those systems are unformed.”
To get the 2013 OHI and future installments back on track, Lowndes and the OHI team started a multi-year project of assembling an “OHI toolbox” of free, open access software that participants in the project would use to make their workflow speedier and more uniform, and the data processing choices more transparent. The decision was initially driven “out of self-preservation, because we had a lot of deadlines and needed to be more efficient,” Lowndes said. Extensive supplementary documentation would be unnecessary because background information would be built into the system. The tools had to be free, they knew, because scientists who would want to use the OHI data and develop their own local measurements in some parts of the world could not afford pricier solutions.
Does the RIAA believe that Americans have the legal right to purchase an authorized CD copy of copyrighted music and rip them into digital audio files for use on a personal computer or digital audio player?
The coolest thing, though, is the real-time aspect. You’ve got sand timers which limit your actions, and one main timer which indicates how often the ship takes damage. The scenario we played at PAX was fairly simple, just 10 minutes long at most, but there are a number of other scenarios which will be included.
With sick gamers documenting their illnesses on Twitter, the organizers of last weekend’s Penny Arcade Expo are urging everyone who attended to take an apparent swine flu outbreak seriously.
Lori Drew, of O’Fallon, Missouri, is charged (.pdf) with one count of conspiracy and three violations of the anti-hacking Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, in a case involving cyberbullying through a fake MySpace profile.
“She really taught me that you always talk to people. She was like the secretary of state,” says Chesky. This let’s-hash-it-out approach, masterminded by Johnson, has grown Airbnb from the brainchild of its trio of youthful founders (Chesky, chief technology officer Nathan Blecharczyk, and chief product officer Joe Gebbia) into a $25 billion business.
