A few weeks ago, GeekDad put out an open call for new writers. I’ve been following GeekDad for a few years and am attracted to it for numerous reasons that should be obvious; I’m both a geek and a Dad.
My reasoning for applying is strange. I don’t think of myself as a writer. But I’m at a transition point in my life. Both becoming a father and with the closing of Tecumseh, I wanted to challenge myself and do something outside of my comfort zone.
And on Friday, May 8th, my first post went live! It is an article about Emulation software that allows us to play the video games of our childhood on modern equipment. The idea came to me over the years as I wanted to give my kids an accelerated history lesson on the evolution of video games. Additionally a professor at Georgia Tech had his class fix one of the biggest flaws in playing emulators on LCD TV’s and help restore the visual charm of these games.
