  1. Back... 1st: India, gaming and outsourcing: an uncomfortable truth.

    Hi all.

    I had written one blog post in India, but then it was on an apple computer and apparently safari does not remember posts if sending fails...Stupid apple, I hope Steve Jobs reincarnated as one!

    My plan to write certainly did fail hard, as 4 of my 6 weeks in India were spent without electricity or running water on a beach with a bunch of hippies. Therefore I plan to make a series of smaller posts describing various things of interest. Today is the first post. ...
  2. Why Use Tactics

    A comment from a Battlelog forum regarding one of my videos:

    Why use tactics? It's a video game! Have fun with some friends! It's fun to be good at a game but special tactics for it? I think that's a little too far. We're not Special Forces soldiers. We're all just people playing a video game that was created for people to have fun and not acting like professionals.
    Why indeed.
  3. 10,000 Words

    At 12:32 PM (EST) today my new book (in progress) just reached 10,000 words. I find the first 10,000 to be much harder than the last 10,000. By the time I reach half-way, a book tends to come poring off my fingers as I type.

A book slowly reveals itself to the author. Each new paragraph and each new page sheds light on the next.

  5. The Hunt for E-Male

    As a result of posting videos to Battlelog individuals try to prove themselves against me because of my different playstyle. This leads to players trying to hunt me down and kill me and make a film of the event. Like this one:

    A curious aspect of "micro-celebrity" culture in online gaming? Certainly something new to me and, I think, rather rare in the genre of virtual videography.

    Of course, it is ...
