Shiny welcomes Gary Cutlack of UK Resistance fame
Shiny has a shopping list of talented bloggers that one day we hope will join our team. So I am massively pleased to say that we have managed to tempt one of our top targets, Gary Cutlack of UK Resistance and Idiot Toys, to come on board. I could witter on about how he is a hugely funny writer and new media genius, but instead I'll let him do the talking. Over to you Gary.
Hello new friends and existing internet enemies! I'm Gary. Shiny Media's just hired me to work on its games and gadgets blogs. This is pretty much my dream job, as even if I was unemployed I'd be sitting in front of a PC writing games and gadgets blogs all day for free. So lucky old me.
I used to work at Future Publishing on its games magazines. Before that I worked at Computec on its games magazines. And before that I worked at Emap on its games magazines. I've been around a bit. It's time for a change, frankly, and working on the web is much, much more exciting than the slow-moving, continental drift world of magazines.
Shiny Media's kicking arse in the blog world right now, and the opportunity to reach Shiny's millions of readers with my poorly-thought-out, one-sided opinions and sweeping generalisations is too good an opportunity to miss. The two existing sites I write - Idiot Toys and UK Resistance - have joined the Shiny network too, so I'll be able to blog HARDER, LONGER and about MORE STUFF than ever before.
I've already posted a few rambling messages over on Tech Digest and look forward to keeping you full of news, gossip and the occasional outright lie when nothing interesting happens, over the coming months. I look forward to being brutally slagged off by each and every one of you in various comments sections across the Shiny portfolio.
