A crash course in changing the world.
Once again a comment that got out of hand, which deserves its own spot as a blog, so an introduction to me, and how i came to evoke (a brief one, I hope)
Bez ? who's that .. ? that's one of my many names - Online I am usually known as Quazimodo, Quaz(y) etc... and have been for so long now that they are also my names, similarly the 'nicknames' Berry/Bez have been used so long they are also my names.. :S My Parents call me Rich or Richard.. so its up to you i guess..
And the comment that lead to this blog:
''Great Thread Gabriel, worthy of a place on the discusions forum imo. I also came to Evoke after seeing Jane Mcgonigal's TED video, and after 27 years of my own life experience which seemed to be leading me here. That fact that Jane's perspectve and my own on games and the potential power they hold to change the world were so aligned meant i simply had no choice, it was fated - I'm one of these 'Gamers' She's talking about though a bit older than the bracket she refers to in her ted talk. Having spent the first 23 years of my life learning about 'the real world' and realising I wasnt to big a fan of the way it was all going right now, I retreated into the online world of WoW for a good 3-4 years. I am/was a WoW virtuoso - though i came to it at 23, prior to that my main focus was learning (science, logic, maths, languages, pshycology etc) and that never stopped, it just changed from the institutionalised learning found in schools/universities to the collaberative learning experience provided to us by the internet. Once again this is too long to be a mere comment, so I'll copy it as a blog as well, and link it here ;) ''
