On Monday, I completed the first draft of my PhD thesis: _Kingdoms Without Borders: Single-player role-playing videogames’ aspirations for the future of human society_. Today, it’s exactly three years since I formally commenced the course. So things are going fine. I’ve got an extension, and a full six months to redraft. I’ll be going chapter by chapter, so in the next few months, expect to see a “public beta” version of the thesis build up, until the full thing is online.
The whole reason I started this site in the first place was to get feedback on my work, so please, check back in the coming months, read some of the thesis, and tell me how and why it sucks. Praise will be accepted, too, but it’s not so helpful.
