Changing of links[edit]

Along with the legal issue above the IP is also changing links.

Changing tetromino to tetrimino
Changing pentominoes to pentiminoes
Changing tetrominoes tp tetriminoes

None of these changes are helpful, some are even detrimental to the article as they create redlinks out of blue links. -- GB fan 17:31, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Tetris as metaphor[edit]

   On the Charlie Rose Show tonite, about 25 min after the hour, one of the closing comments of the male interviewee (Michael someone just before the female one) was to the effect that the Obamacare-repeal debacle involved [a?] "Tetris"-like situation (presumably of "too many moving parts" for control of the outcome to have been manageable). If it's not a coinage event, it may beat least a reliable source for a relatively new usage.

   The female interviewee i mention above was the managing editor of Time magazine, Nancy Gibbs (and that Web page of her appearances presumably will be updated by sometime Monday -- if not w/in 24 hours of tonite, Friday -- helping identify what "Michael" was a guest in the same segment). My WAG is that he is Michael Duffy, Editorial Director of TIME, who has a history of 39 CR appearances, some of which may be contractual acknowledgements of his role in facilitating preparations for her (and other more telegenic TIME-folks') CRose appearances.
