When Donald Trump accepted the Republican presidential nomination last night, his notoriety was among his first talking points. He has, he said, received nearly 14 million votes, the most GOP votes ever. That’s a lot of votes, which got me thinking: What’s up at Trump’s Second life headquarters, which, months ago, was…
Yesterday, the Trump campaign finally acknowledged Pokémon Go. Finally. The Republican frontrunner’s newest anti-Clinton smear ad made a nod to Niantic’s hit app (“Crooked Hillary No!”), probably explained to him by his interns.

Following news that the recreation of Donald Trump’s Florida mansion in virtual playground Second Life was owned by an anime schoolgirl, I decided to take a tour. It was lovely, until I was forcibly ejected by security.

Assigning candidate names to AI-controller, combat-ready invertebrates and letting them wage war until only one stands? YouTube’s Many A True Nerd might be onto something.
A few days ago, many people were shocked—shocked!—at a pair of new studies that found that many Americans have authoritarian tendencies. They want a strong leader, who can sort out “those” people.
