Missed Out

This is a list of the things in nerd culture that passed me by even though I identify as a weird nerd:

  • Dungeons & Dragons

    • Cthulhu and all of H.P. Lovecraft

    • Reddit

    • Slashdot

    • Video games (until 2014 when I bought a PS4™)

    • Mastodon

    • FFFFOUND and MLKSHK

    • Comic books

    • Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, the blockchain

    • Online forums

    • HyperCard

    • Indieweb, "owning my data"

    • TiddlyWiki

I sometimes feel like I missed out on those things, but other times I feel like they weren't for me anyway.

Ways of thinking that have passed me by, that I've read about, but haven't actually done with anybody:

    • Design thinking

    • Agile software development

    • Appreciative enquiry
