About Heaven Sent Gaming[edit]

Your name[edit]

Statement[edit]

敬启者 (To whom it may concern),

I recently read a book called "Internet Legends - Heaven Sent Gaming". It was an interesting read, about an interesting subject, but it was still lacking. Mostly due to the fact that it was a shoddy translation from Japanese to English.

I am very interested in finding out more about Heaven Sent Gaming, they are a small-time entertainment production team from Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. They have created several comics series, a few novels, and a couple web video series. They are a Christian team but, even for a Buddhist like me, their artworks are enjoyable.

If there was a verified interview with Mario and Isabel, or something, it would be very much appreciated. I found the contact email on their website, I think the "press" one would be appropriate.

感谢您阅读此信件 (Thank you for reading this correspondence)

P.S. I primarily speak Chinese, so my English may not be so good. Please accept my apologies for my poor writing.

I used to work the valley as a venture capitalist, I would be more than interested in carrying out an interview. I'll set up a planning page (by the end of the day), contact a few people that I can see are interested from Wikipedia (over the next few days), and I will contact Mr. Lucero and Ms. Ruiz (by the end of the week). The planning page will be at; Wikinews:Questions for interview with Mario J. Lucero and Isabel Ruiz of Heaven Sent Gaming. 107.170.125.15 (talk) 15:40, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

I was 107.170.125.15. I have now created a username on this website, and created a page for question suggestions. Gownirony (talk) 10:57, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Statement[edit]

Teleportation are common in frictions, tales and magic show, but they are not true. In quantum mechanics, physicists reported that information can teleport. This has been a big news in science and society. There are many reports on magazine ( science, nature, ...) and newspaper (Times), Radio, TV ....

Furthermore, I published new paper in Phys Rev E June 29, proposing that particles itself can teleport. This is the first paper of particle teleportation. It will become a hot topic in science and society again.

My name is Yuchuan wei, I am a Phd and associate professor of physics. If you are interested, I can help on anything related.

Statement[edit]

I have a show called Real Geek Girls and we interview geek women. That’s the short. The long is – women tend to get harassed online. There’s a lot of toxicity in the geek community. They’re questioned and tested on their "cred" and it’s a phenomenon known as the "Fake Geek Girl" myth. That inspired me, as a dude with a lot of geeky women friends to take on a project spotlighting some notable out-and-proud geek women. Goals include normalizing geekdom, showing that geeks come in ALL levels of obsession and variety, and to inspire people to be themselves.

There’s a bit of #AskHerMore in there as well which is a campaign to ask women similar questions to men and not ask things like "who made that dress you're wearing" and "how do you handle being a mother AND actress?" We ask a mixture of geeky and professional questions as well as include silly moments and quirkiness.

In a little over a year we’ve done 33 interviews with 17 more on the way by Christmas. Our website and PressKit (available upon request) tell a bit more but the show is making an impact. And it matters.

People are discovering these women that I spotlight and coming to terms with the geekiness inside of themselves through the response these women give in their interviews. Our audience is being inspired by the advice, the candor, and recounting of these women’s struggles!

Now is the time for projects and shows like this as women are fighting these public battles every day. Quick example - I recently highlighted the work of major young Feminist, Rowan Blanchard for another show and both it and my Twitter account face frequent vitriol simply for being invested in this line of work.
