I wrote a little about framing as a fantasy operating system (inspired by the PICO-8 fantasy console):

PICO-8 really drives home, for me, how framing can help people understand your vision for a project. The ideas of a fantasy console and cartridges are so evocative, and immediately signal an appreciation of constraints. I should work on finding similar signals for CS.

@grantcuster yes! and thanks for linking to that video, it's inspiring and helping me think through how to frame engines and toolkits for exploration and making. (and good documentation).

Have you seen this? List of websites that work like operating systems:

@exquisitecorp nice! I had seen that list at some point but should definitely give it a closer look now that I’m thinking about the idea more.
