Why Bother? A Moral Choice for Young ArtistsIn the wake of some truly disgusting activity in the gaming industry right now, I’ve been grappling with a moral dilemma concerning what I would recommend young artists do with their chosen career paths.Why Bother?

Phil Fish Hacked
Phil Fish, the creator of FEZ, is pretty much universally hated by people online. Recently he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, who was herself under fire from internet thought police for “corrupting” games journalism’s integrity by sleeping with journalists to get favorable reviews of her game (allegations which later proved to be untrue). Because he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, Phil found himself under a massive internet attack, wherein hackers compromised his SSI, passwords, Polytron's PayPal account, and other sensitive data.

Contact Me: email@example.com
Artistic Expression: My primary hobbies are writing and photography. My writing usually takes the form of fantasy literature, and I am currently working on the second round of editing/rewriting for my first novel manuscript. I also enjoy writing literary journalism-type essays (things you would see in hobbyist magazines) and monologues/theater scripts.
My photography focuses mainly on nature and wildlife (particularly birds). The region of the US where I live has a great diversity of habitats and offers plenty of opportunities for any photographer.
Education: I have an Associate's Degree in Wildlife Technology, and my Bachelor's Degree was an independent major focused on environmental education, natural disasters, and writing. I know how to assess the health of habitats and waterways, determine whether they are suitable for a given species, perform various population studies, and do basic management of harvestable forest stands. I also know how to create basic mitigation plans for preparation and evacuation in case of any number of natural disasters.
Residence: The region of the US where I live is also along the line of the furthest glacial encroachment of the current "Ice Age." The entire landscape I live in has been shaped by naturally-occurring climate change, and because of the evidence and information I've gathered from living in this region my entire life and from the various professors I've studied under, I do not believe in man-made global warming. Any information you wish to present to me regarding this should be firsthand scientific papers with all the data and experiment details, not secondhand, media-edited hearsay for the common man.
