the Valhalla project, etc

I've added a new link to my blog list, but it's not really a blog. It's a blogger biography project meant to help bloggers get to know each other a little better. What I like most is how you can browse by different criteria, like location and profession.

I'm on there now as well, if you ever get curious. And since it has the familiar "five random things" question, I no longer feel obligated to respond to Ysh's meme. =P

I might really update my blogroll eventually, but not today. Some of those sites are in permanent hibernation, I think, and I read others that aren't listed there.

And in case you're curious, I get most of my gaming news these days from friends in Twitter (especially Alchemic Dream) and N4G. For previews and reviews, I usually turn to GameTrailers. What sites do you rely on?


  1. Ah! I got an email from the guy running that site. He asked me to take a look over the 1st run of questions to see. Am curious, do we know much about him or has he just sprung up, recently?

  2. Yay! Yes, the comment format is way better. I hate the poppy uppy blogger comment windows! Yuck! (Yes, I know you can see them in embedded form eventually, but it's... yucky. I am vocab-challenged today.)

    @DMOsbon he contacted a few of us out of the blue and I (among others) spread the word. I don't think there's any harm in it, but I'm naive about these things. If he plans to make loads of money off it... good for him; I certainly wouldn't know how. :P

  3. Yes indeed. If you figure out a way that I can make some money off of this project let me know. I'd love to quit my day job. No, better yet, I don't want to know. Really, this has nothing to do with money. I've mentioned before that the main reason I started the Valhalla project was to try and give something back to the MMO community. I've been lurking for way too long now, and my natural curiosity about these fascinating blogging and podcasting creatures simply got the best of me. If there is anything in particular that you have a concern about, please drop me a line.

    And thank you very much Aaron for the plug. I really appreciate it. I've gotten a lot of help from this community (Ysharros' certainly included here). We're closing in on 40 participants. There's no way I could have done that on my own.


  4. Actually Randolph, VP reminds me oddly of Nick Yee's work -- it's nothing like (unless you're also starting on a doctoral thesis!), but for some reason it rings the same way to me. However, since not everyone knows the Daedealus Project (now in hibernation), I haven't drawn the comparison elsewhere.
