So for those who subscribe to the print version of EDGE Magazine, this is old news, and for those who do so in the UK, I think it's even older, but for the last few months I have been writing a column for them. Now that the first issue has streeted world wide, and now that the first in the series of columns has gone up online, there is no longer any embargo in place, so I am allowed to repost it here. Obviously, getting access to this delightful and free content either at EDGE Online or here should not dissuade you from ordering a paid subscription to EDGE. It is paid subscriptions that allow them to pay me to write this stuff, and given how high rent is in San Francisco, frankly, I can use the money. Expect to see me putting up each new column in the series here on or around the first of each month following the month the paper mag streets in the US. Also, expect to see minor differences between what EDGE runs and what I post. I will be posting my pre-editor version, the version I submitted to them. My version will probably have more swearing.
