  • Hercules: A Movie Review

    Posted on November 5, 2014 by Tao

    HerculesThought I'd update everybody with a movie that I recently watche d- the new Hercules with the Rock.  It's a surprisingly nuanced movie and does a lot to take the concept of Hercules to 'real life'  Even more interesting is the fact that it's actually based on a comic book, so while there are certain comic book sensibilities (the difficult to hurt / kill heroes), it never steps too far out of reality to make it completely unbelievable.

  • Everything I have to say about GamerGate

    Posted on October 23, 2014 by Tao

    Has already been said and better by Felicia Day in her blog post.

  • Massively Multiplayer: Book Review

    Posted on September 11, 2014 by Tao

    Massively Multiplayer by P. Aaron Potter is an amazing book and a great example of the eBook revolution and the kind of quality that can come from it.  I picked it up via a Humble Bundle and I must say, there were certainly quite a few good books in there but this one stood out.

  • Little Brother - Book Review

    Posted on September 4, 2014 by Tao

    So, Little Brother by Cory Doctorow is probably the best Young Adult book I've read in a long time. It's set in an alternate reality modern day (or maybe just a little ahead of where we are) and focuses on Marcus's fight against 'Big Brother' once they take over San Francisco after a terrorist attack. Unwilling to trade his privacy for 'safety', the book chronicles his exploits and does a little teaching along the way.

    Posted on August 12, 2014 by Tao

    We went all the way North to Yukomicon last weekend and had a ton of fun. Being the first year there, we weren't sure how well it would work but it went well and we really enjoed the much smaller venue and setting.  Both Magda Apanowics and Kevin Sorbo were amazing as guests.
