i feel like this is really important
As the news editor for Giant Bomb, a video game news and reviews site, Patrick Klepek has received his share of online harassment, from the comments to Twitter to his personal email. But he’s a white dude in a position of influence. What kind of harassment do less established writers and people in the community particularly women and minorities face? Klepek talks to us about his recent work to call attention to toxic conversations online and how to make the Internet a (slightly) nicer place.
Here’s my radio spot from this morning! Amazing it’s already up.
I was slightly taken aback by one of the first questions the co-host, Molly, asked me before we started chatting. “Why do people hate you so much?” It’s a completely valid question, even if it was laced with some welcomed sarcasm. But sometimes it’s easy to forget how this stuff looks to outsiders.
There’s not much new here, if you’ve been following my work the past year, but it’s interesting to have the conversation with non-gaming folk.
Side note: The other co-host, Brian, went to high school with Dave Lang.
wow, what would that be like? chilling.
