"Games, then, are a unique social technology. They are a method for inscribing forms of agency into artifactual vessels: for recording them, preserving them, and passing them around. And we possess a special ability: we can be fluid with our agency; we can submerge ourselves in alternate agencies designed by another. In other words, we can use games to communicate forms of agency." Nguyen (2020) Games: Agency As Art

"Amazon, par exemple, ne se contente pas de savoir quels livres ses clients achètent sur sa plateforme, il analyse aussi les traces de la vitesse de lecture sur la liseuse: lire le livre en entier ou non, sauter des chapitres, etc. Une étude a montré que les lecteurs d'Orgueil et Préjugés, de Jane Austen, lisent plus rapidenemtn les chapitres où apparaît le séduisant Darcy." - Dominique Cardon (2019).

Star Trek Strange New Worlds S01E06 intitulé "Lift Us Where Suffering Cannot Reach" == AWESOME. L'inspiration "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" est délicieuse.

Borgen new show look great. Unsure if it would have the same taste as the first 3 seasons. The subtitle "Power & Glory" suggest a more "House of Cards" tone than the old optimistic nice scandinavian politicians on bikes. youtube.com/watch?v=pmRJiZ4mFQ thoughts?
