Pronouns: He / Him / His
My geeky interests focus mostly around my work as a member of the Nickscast: I am the host and writer for the Zeal Archives—a podcast / audio drama about the world of Chrono Trigger—and co-host and editor of Fanthropological, a partly explanatory podcast that covers fandoms and fan culture related issues. I also run the Race Against Time a livestream that focuses on completing older games in set time limit for charity.
I started this iteration of my blog as part of an effort to integrate my interests and hobbies. I’ve been a geek my entire life, personally and professionally, and have mostly avoided talking about both. I want to talk more openly about my geeky experiences and those of others (which I am constantly in awe of) 😲
When I graduated from University, and even at conventions, one piece of advice I had heard was to try to use the same handle across social media. I wanted something short, hard to mess up, and ideally, memorable. I ended up with NT3R (NICK T3RWOORD) as it was easy to spell aloud and the domain name was available.
Unfortunately, someone on Twitter already had that handle (😞), so I tried to retcon the name into something cleverer: nt3rp (similar to entropy)
And since I started using that alias in 2010 on Twitter, I’m stuck with it now 🙃
