I'm a programmer, writer, and philosopher of all things. I post all kinds of stuff here:

Software content


Spem, the philosopher's conlang.

Argument - insights on debating and the psychology of argument, arguments and rebuttals I've made, debunkings of random bad but popular ideas.

Prismata content - I used to play this game devoutly, and wrote a lot of beginner guides and stuff.


Game design philosophy

Storytelling philosophy

Reviews of games and stories

My works

Theory - on ideal organization.

Commentary - on the particulars of the world.

Protagonism - my "religion" if you could call it that.


Friends - Some of my awesome friends have their own websites.

Recent update log

October 18: New: Don't negotiate with bad software.

October 2: I updated my Deltarune review to reflect my experience of chapter 2, and merged two old articles into a new one: Bad excuses for lying.

September 26: Added the first new Protagonism article in a long time: Normativity reduces and why being wrong makes you a bad person.

September 20: So there's been a big change. You probably noticed there are, uh, no comments anymore. That's because I decided discussion doesn't belong in the hands of webmasters. Discussion belongs in a dedicated, decentralized system that I have no control over, such as Lemmy. As a bonus, this means my website and Didact don't depend on Javascript nonsense like Lit-Element and Webpack (except for the Spem dictionary), and load faster! The only Javascript left is a tiny bit for the theme toggle and the subscribe button.

Also, Spem pronouns have been revamped again.

This site doesn't host comments because that would be against my principles: discussion belongs in a dedicated, decentralized medium like Lemmy (tag me if you start one!).
