Ask me anything/open thread
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 2:17 AM

Been a bit busy with different projects and the “day job”. Some potentially exciting things going down with Storybricks, but under serious NDA, unfortunately. Hopefully we can discuss details soon. :)

Anyway, I’ve got a post I want to write, but at this pace it might take me a few weeks. So, let me solicit questions from you all and have an open thread here. Post what you want to post about. Ask me a question, get my feedback, or just rant about something you don’t have space to put anywhere else. Standard caveat applies, anything truly offensive will probably get deleted. But, you’ll have to be in excessive bad taste to get to that point.

So… what’s on your mind? :)

Also, there’s a separate thread over on Google+.
