Submission + - Female gamers who have had enough of politics (contessaonline.com)

Intrepid imaginaut writes: An online RPG convention called ConTessa for female gamers who just want to game is being set up by Stacy Dellorfano, who writes: "The idea for ConTessa came about in late 2012 when I started craving for a space for myself where I could just be a gamer without having to constantly talk about being a woman who games, or constantly being expected to comment on every piece of artwork or game or political gender discussion that came up. It became so bad that I rarely got asked to actually talk about the actual games and gaming and frequently got asked to talk about anything involving gender politics.

I thought it would be nice to build a convention where women could set aside the gender politics for a few days and just enjoy being gamers."

Submission + - Annonymous targets Irish websites over SOPA (thejournal.ie)

Intrepid imaginaut writes: "It appears that anonymous has launched a widespread DDOS attack on numerous Irish government websites in the past few hours, taking down justice.ie and finance.gov.ie in an effort to attract attention to a piece of SOPA-like legislation that is being rushed through by Sean Sherlock. A Twitter account affiliated to the Swedish arm of Anonymous said the timing of the attack, when the websites would not be in heavy demand, was a “wake up – warning shot”."
