I’m genuinely lucky to work amongst and for some of the best, brightest and most generous technology journalists on the planet. Folks like PC & Tech Authority/Atomic’s David Hollingworth, for example.
He’s set up an event that will run on December 7th for 24 hours straight, playing games. PC games. Console games. Mobile games. He’s even threatening card games.
But it’s not just about fun and frags; instead, it’s to be a sponsored event, with all proceeds going to World Vision Australia‚Äôs Typhoon Haiyan emergency appeal. David’s plan is to raise at least $10,000.
I think it’d be nice if that could at the very least be doubled. Or more.
