If you'd like to read a blog about why Ocarina of Time was the first videogame that aspired to be a work of art, boy do I suspiciously have exactly that blog for you: https://frankpodmore.wordpress.com/2018/11/22/20-years-of-ocarina-of-time/
People keep making this argument that #XR in the UK is pointless and that they should go and protest in China. But, like, how?

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.
Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.
I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

There's a bit of a running theme in the UK of uncovering massive problems and doing nothing. Iraq War - massive failure of governance. The response? Leave everything the same, so that the exact same thing can happen again. GFC - massive failure of the financial system - nothing's changed to stop it happening again. EU referendum - massive failure to regulate spending and online advertising. Again, no actual attempt to fix it. Feels like, as a country, we've given up.
