Hi, I�m new here but this isn�t my first post on the site. I�m not a very experienced �blogger� per se, but I�ve written countless words on forums, pages, myspaces and walls over the years. I�m not really sure how I got here, but I know that the community, one of the best I�ve seen in my years on the interwebs, is why I�ll stay for a long time. People are curteous without being �politically correct� and give you feedback without, normally, being douchetards about it. In a few words, Destructoid is that lemonade on a magical party island full of smart hot people stuck in a sea full of pedophiliac, homophobic, racist, evangelical, prostheltyzing trolls and Satanists. Basically those people who post on Yahoo! News.
Sooo, now I guess I introduce myself. My name is Will and I�m a 23 year-old Cal student who is graduating in two months. WAHOOOO! Since I�m on Destructoid, it goes without saying that I love the shit out of videogames, but I�m going to say it anyways ☺. The world to me is fascinatingly small and large at the same time. Where the future is heading is anybodies guess, but, since I�m writing my thesis on it, I�m willing to bet that the majority of people�s lives will be spent in the virtual medium if that already isn�t the case. On the subject of my thesis, I�ll be posting snippets of it up here in the blogs in the coming weeks, mostly focusing on my musings about online communities and the developing nature of virtual communications. It would be awesome to hear from the DToid community on your thoughts and predictions for the future and I�m stoked to engage in a dialogue with everybody. I�ve been working in social networking editorial circles for a while (last year as an editorial intern at IGN) and I�d really love to keep heading in that direction in the future (so give me some job offers! :P)
One of my closest companions is a doggie named piper, I�ve got a special place in my heart for cheap Indian food and few things are as relaxing to me as lying on a beach in the cold sunlight of Half Moon Bay, Ca. It�s a pleasure to get to hang with all of you☺
