Alrighty then, been a while so I did this and I might be a bit rusty but here I go…
To all the new people (yes all two of you) welcome to my blog! What started out as something slightly personal that shouldn’t have been public has now transitioned, perhaps poorly, into my ramblings and some assignments related to my uni work studying my Communications and Media degree. To start us off in this new year I’m studying two courses. One titled Cybercultures and the other Digital Game Cultures. Despite my writing practice I don’t think words alone can describe how keen I am to be studying these subjects.
I am far too keen to see the way technology is evolving and will continue to evolve in Cybercultures. Both the technology itself and the way that society adapts around it is fascinating to me as someone who was born slightly too late to fully understand the way the internet changed things. This should be a fun subject.
Digital Game Cultures is, to put it simply, my life outside of university. I play games. I try to play lots of games. If I like a game one of the first things I’ll do is go to reddit to see if other people liked it or appreciated the same aspects that I do. And this subject encourages us to make our own game and our own community. I imagine it’ll be a hectic ride but one that is important to my personal growth as well as my university education.
Like I said, this should be a good university session.
