Interests Meme

questioned these seven interests, if you want me to ask about yours, comment below.

4ad
A rather good independent record label. The people who brought the world The Pixies, Dead Can Dance, The Cocteau Twins, M/A/R/R/S, and so on.
ansible
Dave Langford’s multi-Hugo-winning fanzine/semi-prozine. Also an anagram of ‘lesbian’.
looney labs
A small games company with a reputation for quirky games: Fluxx, Chrononauts, Icehouse.
magic realism
I’m rather fond of the works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Jorge Luis Borges.
plokta
Another Hugo-winning fanzine.
salt and sauce
The only thing worth putting on chips. I sneer at your gravy.
xanadu
I remember when this World Wide Web was all Silverstands… One of the great what-ifs of computing history (second only to Babbage, I’d say), Xanadu was Ted Nelson’s plan for a global hypertext system. In (sporadic) development since the 1960s, and arguably no closer to a releasable product than it was then, sadly.
