I’ve just joined the Geekz United team on Extra Life. This is a charity drive raising money for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals around the world. In my case, I’m raising money for the SickKids foundation.
Basically it works like this: You sponsor my participation in this year’s #CRITICALHEAL event, I spend a full 24 (25?) hours gaming, and the dollars raised go to SickKids.
Extra Life 2014, and #CRITICALHEAL, kicks off on Saturday, October 25th and runs until Sunday, October 26th. That gives me a little over a month to raise funds.
Interested in helping me out? Head over to my page and make a donation.

“I do not caaaaaaaaare that it works for you. It’s the web. It should work everywhere, and by everywhere, I mean on my device. I already bought this [computer | tablet | phone | watch] and I am not going to return it just to make your stupid website work. I’ll use someone else’s product.”

“What our clients do with their websites is just as important as the websites themselves. We may pride ourselves on building a great product, but it’s ultimately up to the client to see it succeed or fail. Even the best website can become neglected, underused, or messy without a little education and training.”

“If you have a small space, it doesn’t matter because there’s nothing but space outside. Go to bars, clubs, restaurants, the parks. Apartments here are kind of like a storage space for your stuff and your body, but your mind is meant to go elsewhere. You’re paying so much, not for this apartment but for this city.”
