New cblog feature: You can now use a webcam or social media import photos


How to do it: Start a new blog and look for the button "Pick File" under your photo uploader.  The browser should yell at you for security permissions. Look around the pop-up header area to allow it, close the window, and re-open it. Then you should be good to go.  The largest file you can cross-load is 690k. You'll get a URL that you must copy/paste into your editor and ta-da! instant picture get.

It supports facebook, dropbox, google, and a few others.  here's one from my instagram! when I visited South Korea last month. Do you know this movie? It's called The Host. It's a family drama with a giant monster shoved in the middle.

How this came about: Last week received an email from a new tech company called PickFile. They're an interesting outfit: they've over-engineered every photo import protocol into an easy to drop in javascript tag, and they'd like us to use it on a membership basis. We're going to try it for 30 days and see if people even care.

Do you care? I want to know!  Try importing files under the uploader and let me know if it's useful, as this feature may self-destruct otherwise :)

Happy cblogging!

I keep Destructoid weird. Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage, look:

(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache

My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:

I live in Japan sometimes.

Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:

My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it. When I founded this site in 2006 everybody told me there were already too many gaming websites and it would never happen for me. I ended up selling the site to Enthusiast Gaming and now I help run the biggest gaming convention in Toronto, and continue to work on this site, which reaches millions a month. Basically fuck whatever people think - work hard everyday and don't take no for an answer.

The most important lesson I learned as an adult is that everybody's faking it at their job - and faking it better than everyone else is who gets the job. Also, be nice.
