Hey, Listen

So today on twitter, a dear friend brought up the subject of how empathy differs from sympathy and the importance of learning it. It’s not a skill that is really valued or emphasized in our culture, which is arguably one of the reasons we tend to have so much difficulty having a real discussion about difficult subjects. At the end of a series of tweets, she said “Alright class over go home”.

Thank You, Ryan

So the only time I met Ryan Davis in person, he gave me Giant Bomb stickers and told me to put them on cop cars. — Andy Keener (@reibeatall) If you follow video game news, you probably already know it, but Ryan Davis of GiantBomb has died. I never met the man personally, but many of the people who knew him have been writing amazing tributes that confirm my impressions of the man.
