Bloggers, I want you to write an article that’s not your best. Then I want you to publish it.
As writers (and really, any creative person) we live in a culture where we’re always encouraged to put forth only our best, to show the world only our best faces ….and that’s usually accompanied by encouragement […]
Belgian indie studio Abrakam has donated some quality time to the fans by doing an interview at Red Skies.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun gave an excellent interview with Ubisoft’s worldwide director of all games, Stephanie Perotti, and corporate communications manager, Michael Burke.
