Jeanne Burch's Blog


I teach design in a small technical university. My students include those from three "core" programs: Web Design, Graphic Design, and Gaming. And, yes, trying to convince the gaming students they should care about hanging punctuation as much as the web and graphic students has been a challenge!

My first video game was Pong when I was in 7th grade. Before Pong ever existed, I would sneak out of school to play pinball at the local pool hall. When I was in my early twenties, my mom routinely trashed me in Asteroids; a few years after that, my god-daughter routinely trashed me in Mortal Kombat. In spite of that, I developed an unnatural love for video games, especially RPGs. Where most people probably turn on the local weather forecast in the morning, I turn on the game of the moment so I can get in an hour or two (or three) before work. 

Working with all my students is a blast, but I love the look of disbelief on the faces of the gaming students when they find out their 50-year-old-plus instructor plays video games, and has for decades.

Yowza. The comments on that board are as cringe-inducing as the original tweets, although not for the same reasons. If Mike has friends, they are not on the Code Avarice site.
