Psychochild's Blog

A developer's musings on game development and writing.

No sooner do I post my previous entry when I come across this gem on Slashdot:

Herding cats is hard because you are using the wrong management technique. You herd cattle (and sheep and goats and pigs etc.), you do *not* herd cats. Cats, you put them in the general area of the mice and let them do what they are good at. Micromanagement of cats is a losing proposition.

Pure genius. And properly moderated to a +5, even.

The perfect storm of user created garbage…

Sit down, kids, Uncle Psychochild is gonna go off on a rant.

I still like to read Slashdot on occasion. Yeah, it’s not where the cool kids hang out these days, but I’m getting old and set in my ways. It’s still a pretty decent site for tech news, and sometimes the discussion is worthwhile.

Yeah, sometimes. But, when it goes wrong it goes seriously wrong.

Warning: this post talks about griefing involving images of anatomy. Probably NSFW, but you shouldn’t be reading this at work, anyway. Unless you’re a CSR, then this stuff is probably pretty tame compared to your work. ;)
