In the podcasts, Gary Winnick mentioned a Facebook conversation (in some adventure games forum) where someone basically said that Ron Gilbert was “a puppet” and that TWP would never come out. It’d be funny to read. Can someone find it?

Maybe I should turn off the computer and listen the Buddha teachings about consciousness, and then avoiding the eternal repeat of uncontrolled actions…
It’s something which wasn’t possible back then, at least not to this extend. So I guess we are now compensating this (or overcompensating in some cases ).
For me, it was the podcasts more than anything else
I still haven’t found the conversation because Facebook does not seem to show me the older posts…
Or wash your car.
Or travel to a foreign country.
Or dig for buried treasure.
Or photocopy money.
Or go out for pasta.
