A friend recently asked me for advice on how to get started with video production. I figured more people might be curious about this, and since I haven’t written a blog post in a while, I decided to post my answer to him here. I hope you find it useful. ** A lot of people […]

On Web 2.0

I wrote an editorial earlier this week as the Editor’s Note for The Escapist Issue 237, Editor’s Choice. I think it’s probably my most comprehensive look at Web 2.0 and the phenomenon of Nihilistic Asshole Internet Loser Syndrome, or what Jared Lanier calls “Drive-By Anonymity.” It’s the kind of thing I would have written for […]
