This is one of a series of articles I wrote for The Coalition of Awesomeness blog some time ago. The blog has since gone to an unfortunate (but very awesome) grave so I thought I’d share it here. This particular entry has a special meaning for me, and may shed some light on one of the entries on the list in a recent post.

This is one of a series of articles I wrote for The Coalition of Awesomeness blog some time ago. The blog has since gone to an unfortunate (but very awesome) grave so I thought I’d share it here. Those were the focal questions of Crusade, the Babylon 5 spin-off/sequel series that was cancelled before it even aired. I don’t know what the answers to those questions would have been, but I’m pretty confident that the show’s creator, J. . . . → Read More: Who do you serve, and who do you trust?

Myst, when it came out in 1993, was a ground-breaking (and record setting) game. No one had seen such a visually stunning, photo-realistic immersive experience in a video game before. . . . → Read More: Of Myst, mice, and men
You never know what’s going to make an impact on your kids. I don’t mean an immediate “wow!” impact, I’m talking about the long term stuff. It may not even be a big deal when it happens, and you might not know of its impact for years to come.
I wrote about one of those moments on the Coalition of Awesomeness recently.

So, today’s my birthday. 40th, if you’re wondering. I’m feeling slightly more like looking back and seeing how things have gone to this point than I have for previous birthdays, but that’s pretty much the only difference. I might write more about that later. I’m still waking up with the same aches and pains which are alternately aggravated and erased by my awesome family. I still have to work today. I still have a pile . . . → Read More: Birthday pimpin’
Facebook is a place where absolutely nothing of importance happens. But you do get to see some funny, or at least interesting, posts from time to time. Here are some of the better ones I’ve seen recently:
(That was actually from fellow Coalition of Awesomeness member Dan’s blog, but I saw it through a post on Facebook, so it counts.)

This post is going to be like throwing spaghetti on the wall: I’m just gonna toss a lot of stuff up here and see what sticks. It worked for Oscar Madison (okay, that was linguini – work with me).

The weekend closed out the books for the summer season and while ticket sales were up to $4.35 billion, the highest total ever for a summer season, overall attendance was down. Attendance this . . . → Read More: Throwing spaghetti on the wall
Over on The COA we’ve been talking about gaming experiences. To us geeks, that typically means video games, in case there’s any confusion. Though this wasn’t planned, throughout the articles and comments there has been a thread about the social aspect of gaming, and a sense that the rest of the world sees gaming geeks as hunkered down in their parent’s basements eating Cheetos with only their computer for company.
Sure, there are times when . . . → Read More: The myth of the solitary gamer
Am I awesome?
Well that’s sort of a silly question. Of course I am. I’m me, after all.
But is it possible that I’m getting more awesome?
I can’t say for sure, but the fact that I’ve joined together with an international cadre of bloggers recognized for their awesomeness can only be a good sign.
So far our awesomeness is primarily self-proclaimed, but we’ve got the title to put us over the top as the . . . → Read More: Am I getting more awesome?
