I’ve been methods at rising participation with common readers of the location for a while, and I consider Twitch goes to be a greater technique for this than YouTube by way of time. Over the subsequent few weeks, I’ll be streaming often. I’ll be enjoying video games and music, watching YouTube, and speaking about tech — and anything you’ve acquired in your minds.
Aside from that, we’ve additionally acquired DOOM Everlasting unleashing March 20th. Provided that a lot of the world is in lockdown of some variety, and the 2016 launch being so well-received, I feel Everlasting is on monitor to change into one of many best-selling sport releases of all time.

Previous submit concerning YT under:
You might bear in mind that we’ve had a YouTube channel that’s been round for a number of years. Andrei and I’ve experimented with completely different sorts of content material, from opinions to produced podcasts on the official channel, nevertheless it’s all the time been about client computing.
I loved producing Technically Incorrect with fellow Notebookchecker Sam Medley and YouTuber Lon Seidman, however in the end I’ve been slowly realizing that I wish to speak about a lot greater than client know-how.
There are many tech channels on the market with slickly produced content material that sells advertisements or different merchandise. However over the previous few years, I’ve discovered myself unsubscribing from these channels I used to not miss a single video of. As an alternative, I’m spending extra time watching individuals I think about real and knowledgeable giving their trustworthy opinions.
Whether or not it’s Louis Rossmann or Joe Rogan, I feel that much less produced, extra real content material is the route I’d prefer to experiment with by way of creating content material and expressing myself.
What are the rules for the format? I’d prefer to have me and the occasional visitor speaking about issues that matter to us. I simply know that I’d prefer it to be:
- Content material-first. I’m not excited by creating slick animations.
- “Actual”. I’ve zero intention of being advertiser-friendly or making a residing. It is a artistic outlet.
What am I certified to speak about? I’m a 34-year-old British-American who lived and labored abroad (South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, and Sri Lanka) for almost 13 years till very just lately. Past being a part-time tech journalist since 2015 closely concerned with Notebookcheck and this web site, I taught larger training for over a decade, DJ and placed on occasions, and now work full-time as a contractor based mostly in Washington D.C..
Briefly, I might love to speak about know-how, society, politics, psychology, music, and life on the whole. Most significantly, I’d prefer to work together with the viewers and assist individuals in no matter methods I can.
However that doesn’t matter if no one is excited by watching/listening, after all. So, what would you prefer to see/hear me speak about, and the way would you prefer it to be formatted? Please let me know your concepts within the feedback part under!
