Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
The Everyone’s Photos page is the best place on the internet.
Tom Francis: Okay, the reason I mentioned the Everyone's Photos page is that that's where I came across this. That was implied, I hope. The reason I think that might need clarifying is that it turns out the Flickr member who posted that photo, Disappointment, is in fact Jon Blyth, one of the maybe ten people whose So You Want To Be A Games Journalist my last post was a response to. Now I don't have a maths degree or anything, but I think the chances of this happening are somewhere below 0.00001.
OH WAIT I DO.
Tom Francis: So there's stuff like, I've met everyone in this photo. And two of the people in this one own pretty faces that you see on the right. And then there's the aforementioned fact that he's one of the eleven people to whom my VERY LAST POST referred. To be honest, this whole thing is so absurdly unlikely that I wouldn't blame you if you just flat-out didn't believe me.
Jonty: Flickr is for the weak. Real randoms use http://www.diddly.co... ...m/random/.
Jason L: Bah, that's a silly algorithm. Nobody I know ever lets images keep their camera defaults. It would seem that real randoms want to see only pictures taken by the incompetent, lazy and/or clueless.
