The Ontological Geek is Two Years Old: The Annual Report, 20112012 1


Two years ago, I post­ed a rather grandiose state­ment of pur­pose on a lit­tle blogspot site to an audi­ence of my wife and a few friends.  Today, we have our own domain, a reg­u­lar writ­ing staff of eight peo­ple, and peo­ple actu­al­ly come to the web­site that don’t per­son­al­ly know me!

This last year has been inter­est­ing for a vari­ety of rea­sons.  We start­ed out in some­thing of a slump, as I start­ed a full-time job and Matt was enter­ing into the sec­ond and more stress­ful year of his Master’s degree, but start­ed to hit our stride again in about January, with sev­er­al par­tic­u­lar­ly good arti­cles.  In June, we relaunched the site, mov­ing from Blogspot to a real domain, and our writ­ing staff grew from two to eight, with sev­er­al guest con­trib­u­tors still mak­ing the rounds.

It’s been a good year, over­all.  I’ve learned a lot about games and games-criticism, and per­haps even more about run­ning a real web­site with reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tors.  I’m still just as excit­ed about what we do here as I was when we start­ed, and I hope you’ll con­tin­ue to read what we write and com­ment below!

Thanks to all of our writ­ers and read­ers, and here’s to anoth­er year!

I like all of the arti­cles we’ve put up on the site, but here, in chrono­log­i­cal order, are some of the best pieces from the last year:

That ought to keep you out of trou­ble for a while.
