Looking Back, Looking Forward

Posted on June 21, 2015

Hey everyone. Hi. Hello. What’s up. :)

So it’s been a while. Trust me, I know. I’ve been busy, but I mean, in a year and a half, how busy do you have to be to not post even once? Well, with each passing minute the guilt grows and makes it harder. Working more-than-full-time probably doesn’t help, either! I’m writing these sentences after a robust glass of wine and will almost certainly take several attempts to finally post this. (Update: accurate) I have some maintenance plans for FUoS that I’m sloooowly working on, and I won’t be considering further posts until that work is complete. Making the move to Tumblr from WordPress is a soul-sucking endeavour, lemme tell ya. Here’s the best part: it’s an unknown-amount of work, which makes it suuuuuper motivating! Ugh. Any suggestions for pushing oneself to do something that is so incredibly boring for an indefinite amount of time is appreciated.

GTFO The Movie

FUoS plays a small role in the documentary film GTFO by Shannon Sun-Higginson. (Available on iTunes, Vimeo, Google Play, Xbox, Playstation, and Vudu.)  GTFO started filming shortly after the Cross Assault incident over three years ago, and grew to examine more than just that one instance. We’re proud of the involvement in the film, and we’re proud of what has changed since FUoS started. We’re relieved that everybody now recognizes the fact that the software and websites we use are under human control and can be used to protect, rather than harm. In the non-gaming space, Facebook has been coming to grips with harassment on its service.  Reddit is banning subreddits that specifically harass others. Google announced just recently that they’ll be removing revenge porn from search results. Twitter has been making many changes to its safety features lately.
