A Compilation to Understand GamerGate

Yakın zamanda GamerGate saçmalığı üzerine bir yazı yazmayı planlıyorum ancak o sırada hem benim bilgilenmemi sağlayan ve yazıda kullanacağım kaynakları bir araya toplamak, hem de konuyu merak edenlerin ya da derli toplu okumak isteyenlerin işine yarayacak bir kaynak oluşturmak için böyle bir derleme yapmaya karar verdim. Yeni yazılar, videolar buldukça bu listeyi güncelleyebilirim.

Ve eğer merak ediyorsanız şimdiden söyleyeyim: Evet, ben de olması gerektiği gibi anti-GamerGate’im. Nedenini yazıyı yayınlayınca öğrenirsiniz.

(I’m planning to write a Turkish article about GamerGate bullshit soon but before that, I want to compile my resources at one place. I hope this post will be helpful for anyone who wants to read some sane articles about GamerGate. I may update this list if I can find more.

And just in case, if you’re wondering: Yes, of course I’m anti-GamerGate.)

Warning: This is a Meta Post

Since the beginning of summer, I was thinking about my online activities, accounts and a way to organize these in a way which makes sense for me. Because for a while it feels to me like I need a good clean up. Until now I was doing that with small steps but from now on, there will be some important changes and this post is a good example for that.

Other than announcements and long posts, I’ll start writing quick notes and short posts in here too. I was thinking about making a side-blog for this but this doesn’t made enough sense for me. That means I’ll be using here more active and that kind of posts will have a special category for them, which is called Notebook.

Also I’m playing with Known too. If I can get along with it, I may totally dump Tumblr and use that for an active microblog for things like music, video, photos etc. Maybe I can buy a weird domain or create a subdomain for it. Still not sure.

And last stage is about my accounts all around the web. Right now I’m visiting every single one of them and deciding if it’s worth keeping. Some survives, some goes private, some dies. If you’re wondering about current situation, list of my active accounts is here. I’ll update this regularly.

Guess that’s it for now. It’s already 2am here.
