Digest for October 2018


This month saw me share the Story of Scgary: how my childhood friend Gary and our various adventures together had become part of the mythology of roleplay scenarios used in the training of helpline volunteers at Aberystwyth Nightline.

I also shared news of a piece of interactive fiction produced for Halloween by my team at work, a parody of what websites are like in 2018, a Black Mirror-esque short storya YouTuber who’s engineering cybernetic augments to sense and react to the physiological signs of her arousal, and tips on winterproofing your vagina (sarcastic, obviously).
