Oh, I should mention: I am currently a freelance Django developer, but I'm *very* interested in finding a few like-minded folks to build a development co-op.
Especially interested in building secure and/or federated versions of the items on this list: https://dymaxion.org/essays/pleasestop.html

A few Steam suggestions!
Yoku's Island Express is an adorable pinball adventure game where navigating nearly everything involves flippers and tunnels.
Demon's Tilt is a fairly new game that is a great 2-D pinball game... occult themes are VERY prevalent, if that's an issue.
Super High Ball is an early access game that is a 2-D platformer game with pinball flipper mechanics, guiding the ball through progressive obstacles and areas.

is there like... a really fun pinball game on steam, itch, gog, or the web? fun could be just, some cool tables, or it could be a Pinball Quest kind of situation - does that exist???
my only reference points for pinball video games are space cadet pinball and sonic spinball, i'm not a pinball nerd (no offense to them ofc)
Fediverse, help me out: in middle school (~2001) I *loved* a series of books and I now remember almost nothing about them and can't find them. I vaguely remember the characters and plots were different in each one, but that it involved people finding their way into faery (which was the only consistent thing between books, I think) and that they always ended in unresolved cliff hangers.

you may have seen that story going around yesterday about the NYC mayoral candidates mistakenly thinking the median price for a home in Brooklyn is $100,000.
but just in case this detail wasn't included in whatcha saw, please know that one of the candidates was Obama's housing and urban development secretaries for like five years.
This Friday (May 14th), itch.io will be waiving their cut from every sale for 24 hours and giving all the revenue to developers! https://itch.io/blog/252069/annoucing-the-first-itchio-creator-day
