        Tonight's fatigue level (pick one): [ ] Pretty beat. Good day. [ ] Hoooooo. [X] Throw the dirty dishes in the dishwasher with yesterday's clean dishes and run it again. Dishwasher don't judge.

          @jaredsinclair @eridius it’s a passionate issue. For some it’s murder. For others, it’s bodily rights. I hope I never have to face a decision like that in my life, but I’d rather we all had the freedom to make that decision for ourselves.
          jury
            @eridius @jaredsinclair what Kevin said. With an issue as complex as this, choice is the important thing. People should be free to follow their situational and moral inclinations within what is already a reasonably conservative timeframe in most places.

              @chrisphin it’s absolutely true that freemium benefits from maximizing downloads, but for any non-consumable the developer needs to think hard about pricing what their features/functionality are worth. I’d love to see more non-games give freemium a go.
              jury
                @chrisphin sorry for the late reply. My meta point is always think about revenue maximization, not download or user maximization. I think freemium, done right, is terrific. Particularly in a world without trials. It’s tricky to get right, but worth it.

                      Over on Twitter they’re arguing about how to pronounce “gif.” I’m so glad we’re past pointless wars like that, once we settled on The One True C Brace Style.

                        I just watched @jury's talk from NSConference 5 and I mentally raised the price of an app I'm not even done writing yet. Quite a compelling argument. http://nsconference.com/product/detail?id=8

                                I’ve found too many people think Animal Farm is meant solely as some great indictment of Communism. It is far, far more than that and should hit closer to home than many realize.
