Catwigs: A conversation with your project
"One very direct, sensible question to ask about an idea is “does it actually solve a problem?”. If it doesn’t, why are you doing it? Valid reasons include “to have fun” or “because I like it”, but what if they’re not there? Like wigs for cats, many ideas do not solve a problem. Cats don’t need wigs."

The Polak Game, Or: Where Do You Stand?
This article describes the origins and uses of a classroom and workshop activity called "The Polak Game" or "Where do you Stand?". Over a dozen years of use to date, the game has provided a user-friendly structure for facilitating quite far-reaching conversation among foresight students and clients. Duration is flexible, but typically runs 30-60 minutes. It represents an effective and accessible approach to introducing "images of the future" as a basic property of both cultures and individuals, and so to pave the way for more advanced tools and frameworks.

Turns out adopting a dog in Skyrim is the hardest quest in the game...
"Like most of Bethesda's RPGs, Skyrim is a game brimming with possibility and stuffed with content. It's how those two aspects come together and intersect that make it interesting. Like when a player finds a dog abandoned by its owner (to be fair, the guy was dead) and wants to adopt it, but everything that can go wrong does."
