Hello, everypeople!

I'm Hawkye, gamer since roughly the Bronze Age, and supporter of edumacation. I like games, gaming, gamers, and generally spending my time in an enjoyable yet unproductive manner.

I play any number of games including MMORPGs (World of Warcraft, Star Trek Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Dark Age of Camelot), action games, simulators, and just about anything besides sports.

I think games are an excellent educational tool, because they can be used to make people WANT to learn, rather than feel like it's a necessary chore.

I'mma lookin' forward to this. Let's have some fun!
Here's to all the educated people who don't hate games!

Hawyke, what I remember most about you was a few year ago and you were in my class, so I was the "leader" and within the Second Fleet Guild of StarTrekOnline you were the guild Admiral and I was a lowly Frengi Female Ensign, I used to salute you in the hallways! LOL Talk about augmenting realities! In this MOOC we have had a chance to work together as peers for the first two sessions and I look forward to your social media support in this session and the immersion into MineCraft in the Summer session. Mine and Craft. LOL I am so glad we have an very active gamer in this group.

Oh ho, Hawkye! So we meet again. ;)

I can't wait to discuss and play games with the rest of us alumni (and with our newcomers!).

I expect to see you post some new games here for us to test out again. It's going to be fun (don't you know it!)

Glad to see you back, buddy,
