About Me

My photo

Welcome! I am teaching law at St. Petersburg State University and engaged in legal practice with the international law firm Dentons. Major part of my research is connected to virtual worlds and massive multiplayer online games (a broad field which includes Internet law, video game law, virtual law and game studies). My legal practice is focused on providing support to computer game companies. This interest derives from my passion for computer games which I consider as one of the most important cultural artifacts ever created. Please note that this blog conveys my private opinion which is not necessarily shared by any organisations I am associated with.

Razer Naga...

...has improved my MMORPG performance as I notice after two months of using it. Although I would not say 'drastically': my usual keymapping involved 'alt', 'shift' and 'ctrl'-ing the buttons around WASD (which is '1' - 'c' from the upper left to the bottom right corner) before this, so the new mouse allowed me just to put less stress on the left hand. And I agree with Dr. Bartle who admits that the thumb buttons could do more than reflect either keyboard number line or numpad.

Hooray! My first authentic picture. Feel free to use it with a link to this blog.
