Masa Takei: The Storyteller

Masa, we’re super excited that you have agreed to share your story with us, our customers and followers. So let’s get to it, we have some questions for you. First off, can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do?

I work as a freelance writer, kind of a hunter-gatherer of stories. I’ve written in an array of mediums including magazines and newspapers, online, and for the screen. For example, I wrote stories about traveling through the Northwest Passage for The Globe and Mail and through the Great Bear Rainforest for Explore, created a year-long video series for RadX while building an off-grid cabin on Haida Gwaii, and worked on epically bad feature movies about half-vampires and genetically modified mercenaries. In my wallet I carry a license to go anywhere, talk to anyone, do anything and call it work (as long as I produce something to share). What could be better than that?

Is Pokemon Go a fad? Maybe. Should you ignore it? Nope.

Pokemon Go Screenshot

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about Pokemon Go. But seriously, what is it?

Pokemon Go originally started out as an April Fool’s prank by Google back in 2014. It generated so much demand and buzz that Google eventually tasked Niantic Studios with creating the game. Using the lessons it previously learned from Ingress, Niantic used augmented reality to create Pokemon Go.

Is your password secure? It might be time to change it again

Password Security - 1200 x 630

In light of recent events, it might be time to change your passwords again.

Last month, news broke out that LinkedIn user data stolen from 2012 were being sold on the dark web. A few weeks later, both Twitter and Myspace reported similar breaches as well. As more hacks are reported every few weeks, it’s perfectly natural to be on edge especially when we share our personal details with these networks.
