I'm honestly not sure how to summarize this video. It's a very interesting look at the way that the impulse to "optimize" gameplay affects the culture surrounding games, especially MMOs and other multiplayer games. It particularly looks at World of Warcraft and the social norms that have developed around and within the game. It's a long watch but I found it really interesting, and I have zero connection to WoW and have never played it.
Mojo Lens seems to have created a "smart contact lens" with a pretty dense display along with a fair number of other features including a wireless radio, accelerometer, gyro, and magnetometer (for eye tracking). It all seems to fit into an incredibly small package which is apparently thicker than normal contact lenses, but still wearable as demonstrated by their CEO. It seems like a pretty exciting piece of tech. I have suspicions that the battery life is probably the most limiting factor but I'm going to be following this with interest.
Musical elitism is a vast topic that touches on class, gatekeeping, education, snobbery, wealth, privilege, aspiration, historical legacy and popular culture. In this video I take a broad look at all of these.

This article is the first in an excellent ongoing series by al.com writer Kyle Whitmire, called State of Denial. About the series, Whitmire says, "Alabama has been poisoned by old lies. “State of Denial” is a year-long initiative looking at how Alabama’s past corrupts its present and deprives the state of a better future."
It was interesting seeing this headline over the weekend. RPG platform DrivethruRPG has also come out with [a similar statement](https://www.reddit.com/r/rpg/comments/smx42p/drivethrurpg_on_twitter_in_regards_to_nfts_we_see).
