The Button Mashers
Canoe’s new video game blog, Button Mashers, of which I am a contributor, has officially launched, and we’ve already got lots of great content up.
That includes my first of many planned Q&As with folks from the gaming industry or video game culture. This one’s with Katherine Curtis, a.k.a., The Naked Nerd from Naked News (where, fun fact, I used to be a writer).
Curtis made a really fun interview, chatting about women in gaming, playing games with your kids, turning nerdom into a career and more. Here’s one choice quote:

I’ve been wetting my feet over at the Canoe Tech Blog in preparation for next week’s launch of Button Mashers, our new video-game blog, for which I will be a regular contributor.
I’m a new/casual gamer, so rather than write straight reviews, I plan to explore the gaming industry in Canada, issues and controversies du jour and gaming culture and communities.
