The entertainment industry was today warning fans of the popular HBO series Game Of Thrones to avoid ‘at all costs’ a series of books by a rogue enthusiast named George R.R. Martin, who has written five whole volumes consisting solely of spoilers for the popular television show.

The end is near! At least for my time in graduate school.  I am finally able to start my hunt for a post doctoral position or academic teaching position. However it is proving more difficult then I imagined to find a good comprehensive site with listings of available positions. Does anyone have any suggestions of websites I should check out.

I lobe table top. It has gotten my wife into gaming and has been a wonderful way to learn about new games. Please do what you can to help. Even if it is just re-sharing this post
 
Hey guys! Lots of comments here I just want to repeat what I wrote on FB last night to address some comments about our campaign: 

1) Geek and Sundry (and Tabletop) up until now was funded by YouTube's original channel initiative, which is not continuing to go forward anymore. We have been talking to a bunch of partners and are excited about some of our options to continue G&S as a company, but Wil (and we) were passionate about being able to keep Tabletop on schedule to release more episodes this year, and stay independent of influence to change the show for sponsor/commercial reasons. That is why we are fundraising like this.

2) This show is a standout for a reason: We pay professional people to make it. It's polished and stands next to TV show quality because we wanted to make something long-lasting, and impact in a big way, like a TV show when we conceived it. To put it in perspective: The average 30 second commercial you see on TV? Costs 1-3 million dollars. EACH. The average 1/2 hour comedy? 2-3 million dollars. Shows like Game of Thrones? 7-9 million dollars. PER EPISODE.

We are doing a minimum of fifteen, 30 minute shows for a fraction of ONE TV SHOW. If you put it in that perspective, we are definitely not paying people professional rates to work on it. I do a lot of low budget web videos here (to help subsidize shows like Tabletop, actually), and I think the ones that last beyond that moment of consumption are the ones that have budgets, that people tend to enjoy over and over. My goal always has been to show the established TV world that people can work outside the system and compete with their business, Tabletop is our best example of that, just like The Guild before us. We are doing this show for the minimum we can do it and keep up what we have established before us, I promise.

3) You do not have to donate, we appreciate it so much if you choose to do so, and understand if you don't. It will still be free and watchable by you if we make our fundraising goal on YouTube. If anyone has any other questions I'll check this thread back to answer more. Until then, thank you and play more games!

Introduction
I am a research biologist studying the function of lupus T cells. Which causes me to spend long days away from my loving and far to forgiving wife, and our beautiful daughter.

I try and keep up on all things science and tech related.  I am a huge Syracuse football fan(Go Orange!), and wish I had more time to play warmachine.
