Geek Ink Thinks: My old university is slowly being burnt to the ground #feesmustfall

I haven’t captured all my thoughts on the Fees Must Fall crisis in this piece, but considering another building at the university I graduated from has been set on fire, I thought it was time to put pen to paper. I chose to do this as a response to an article written by News24, who interviewed Athabile Nonxuba. Nonxuba is a student leader and is connected with the Rhodes Must Fall and Fees Must Fall movements.

Geek Ink Updates: We had a good run…

I’m putting the blog on ice. Or at least into refrigeration?

P.S. Lot’s of naughty words follow, so read at your own peril.

Geek Ink Updates: So a small piece I wrote got published on the upcoming 2016 EGE Expo

I wrote a small piece on the upcoming EGE Expo for the Cape Times. It got published fairly intact which I was quite chuffed with. However, I have mailed them asking that they change the title of “gaming expert” to gaming/geek blogger/journalist/writer. While I do know a lot about the games industry, I wouldn’t claim to be an expert on the subject. At least my suggestions match up with my qualifications (journalism was part of my undergrad).

Geek Ink Updates: University crunch time!

Hey folks. Just popping by to let you know I’m going to be pretty damn busy for the next three weeks so things are going to be pretty quiet over here at Geek Ink. I have the final versions of two design plans due in on Monday, and then a 4000-6000 word essay due two weeks after that.

This could have been a very different story, as I had a registration issue that affected my completion of one of the earlier modules that I worked on. Thankfully the university made the sane decision and saw I had submitted all my work, so it would be unfair to fail me on that module (which would have prevented me from completing the program this year) because of a clerical error.

Anyway, I will try to squeeze in some content or updates, but I’m not making any promises.
