Hi 👋
My name is Bryan. I’m an editor of Gadget.co.za, South Africa’s longest running online publication.
I’m also a data analyst (using python and R) to make sense of market research.
Sometimes I stream gameplay on Twitch.
All links are in my about section if you’re interested.

Discussion on a show about sexual assault 

I finished watching I May Destroy You last night and seeing so many forms of sexual assault occuring in one show was intense. What's more disturbing is that the show only scratched the surface on the landscape.

a little secret about Stray (2022). many gamers have fallen in love with the cute animal from the videogame.. and can you blame them! who could resist! but did you know the game is based on real life? it turns out, cats are actually real!! get in touch with your local authorities to find the best locations to witness and touch cats

I've been away for a while! The highlights:
- Frank (the new cat) is doing well and can't get over how the neighbour's cat hates him.
- I resigned from my first job (of five years) to go to another company. This is the end of my journalism career journey BUT the start of my full-time analytics journey.

I miss my Instagram:
not much for the overall UX, and spying, but I went through my photo wall and found so many awesome memories. #Fediverse has Pixelfed, but honestly, I do not like the idea to 1:1 rip off Instagram functionality.
For example, maybe there should be no "likes" or "hearts" that fuel the egocentric inside .. I'd like the 3x3 grid though, but perhaps it would be cool to sometimes put the pic 2 times bigger, on a 2x2 tiles. This chould work like Tetris!
What would You want there?
