Whew, last update on Crossroads Alpha here. Busy week.
MuseHack has a long and slightly weird history. It was originally an idea for a book on people going fan to pro. Then it became a site called Fan To Pro, which inspired my book Fan To Pro. Then we realized we should broaden it out to cover more applied geekery – with a big focus on jobs and such but also community building, skill development, and so on. So then it became MuseHack.
MuseHack focuses on using your hobbies, obsessions, and geekdom. There’s a career column, a column on geek citizenship, a weekly examination of media adaptions and remakes, interviews, and more. We’ve also got about five years of content from news, to writing columns, to predictions. I even rerun Way With Worlds there.
With the Alliance, MuseHack provides our “applied” pillar, especially for careers. For Sanctumites it’s a place to go and get – or contribute – professional advice or advice on ways to use hobbies. For MuseHack it provides readers a place to go that’s fun and creative – Seventh Sanctum. A pretty good pairing.
So that’s the roundup of Crossroads Alpha. Well, until we add more sites . . .
