By now, I trust that most politically aware people have seen at least some of 1001 memes generated by President Obama’s incredible speech. Here’s a few examples so that you can get a flavor:
How does this apply to me, you might ask?
Intaligo is a company, albeit a very small company. It employs one person, who is paid very little (me). Its income stream is barely above zero, but every game, website, and help manual – I built it all. Through the storm of opposition, despite haters’ profane reviews, being ignored, hours of late-night coding, theft, and on and on, I persevered. These games are the result of my hard work, sweat, tears, and blood.
So who exactly has been helping me all these years? *bitter laughter* That would be NO-ONE, Mr. President. So yeah. Actually, I did build this. Now go play some golf or go on vacation before you reveal something else embarrassing about how you think.
Hat tip to everyone else who has created an IF game or runs an IF-related business.
