Snake oil salesman. Armagetron can not only bring utopian world peace, it can help your kids learn to read! Piffle.

For such a deep game, the grid is really kind of flat.

No, really, what's so remarkable about finding an analogy in a video game?

Yeah, but wait until he puts his programs to market. And the speaking fees, baby.

This concept isn't unique to Armagetron.

glad phytotronicus is still on form
though it is not the kind of response that i can share with joe...

wrt insight and innovation
glad to see the ladles are still functional
or do we wish to pour acidic comments on that too...?

insights are even more fragile than innovation or social inventions
and this is clearly not the place to share them

after all
the game itself emphasises competition and not collaboration
at least for some of us

You are not deep. Get over yourself.

thanks
fight-o-blabla

your comment has spurred me to edit the article:
" -- But of course, this doesn't make any sense to many of us, because we probably can't see beyond the next decision, just like Joe... Social confluence has this quality, and the only way to overcome it is trust, again something many of us are a little skeptical of."

Oh look, more of your characteristically condescending, thinly veiled, passive aggressive insults. But you go right on ahead acting (and believing?) that you're above all that, and everyone.

I was wrong to call you a snake oil salesman; such people are very well aware they're charlatans. I think you fully believe in your delusions of grandeur.

Phytotron and 2020 are so different, yet so similar at the same time, that I wouldn't be surprised if they turned out to be the same person... Amazing 8)

You did*, I was laughing at Phyto for calling someone else passive agressive while you're pretty much a nice guy, albeit a bit hard to understand sometimes, and nearly all of his posts are agressive towards someone. Keep up the good work, whatever it is that you're trying to do. You gave us the ladle! :D

*Z-Man the "impartial" mod probably removed my post.
