CEO combs through 16k workers? salaries to make sure women are paid fairly

quote [ Benioff, who grabbed headlines recently for his opposition to the controversial "religious freedom" law in Indiana, says he's methodically combing through the pay of all 16,000 employees of his cloud-based software company to make sure his male and female employees are compensated fairly ]

Good guy Benioff.

Perseus Digital Library

quote [ The Perseus Classics collection began as an integrated collection of materials, textual and visual, on the Archaic and Classical Greek world.
Building on the success of the tools and resources developed for Ancient Greek source materials, the project expanded into the Roman world, with additional art and archaeology materials as well as new collections of Latin texts and tools. ]

Got linked to this by my professor in Roman and Greek mythology (not personally, it was more of a "if anyone can't afford the books, this is also okay to use" thing). Thumb is obviously from Jason and the Argonauts, which I felt was appropriate despite the lack of Perseus himself. Anyway, I'm sure you nerds will enjoy some Classical texts.

Let's Get Real About Concept Art

quote [ While I have to accept that people broadly label art created for games and films concept art, including promotional illustrations, it is necessary to get real about what concept art as a craft actually is. ]

Pitch: A young boy who lives in a village on a giant tree, fall in the depth of the forest where he meets two strange natives who will help him to go back home.

I found it on dailydot, but their clickbait title made me go straight for the source instead.

Surrealist Sculptures by Ellen Jewett Merge Plant and Animal Life

quote [ Artist Ellen Jewett refers to her sculptural work as "natural history surrealist sculpture," a blend of plants, animals, and occasionally human-made structures or objects. Her artwork is deeply informed by an extensive background in anthropology, medical illustration, exotic animal care, ]

Pretty cool stuff! Someone somewhere would probably love it. The site itself, thisiscolossal.com, isn't bad either.

Murder by Gaslight

quote [ A compendium of information, resources and discussion on notable nineteenth century American murders.

Walter R. Debbins was shot twice in the back, in broad daylight, on Highland Street in Medford, Massachusetts, on the afternoon of Saturday, March 27, 1897. Though no one saw the murder or heard the gunshots, there was enough traffic on Highland Street that afternoon for the police to precisely pinpoint the time of the shooting to between 1:00 and 1:05. But that was all they could pinpoint; everything else about the crime was shrouded in mystery that grew more dense with each new revelation. ]

Murder mysteries! Always fun.

Please don't get all steampunk-y on this post. Not that it should be called steampunk. Steamsnob, more like it. *shakes fist*

SO MANY GAMES. I figured we could play The Fury of Dracula, but apparently there's no support for that just yet. Maybe I'll create a module, but probably not. Anyway.
