An anonymous e-mailer threatened to blow up a bomb at the Game Developers Choice Awards this past March unless the hosts rescinded an award recognizing feminist critic Anita Sarkeesian, the organizers of the event have confirmed to Kotaku.
I wouldn’t bother with kotaku they are a sinking ship and they know it. I’m sympathetic to a point but… Why bring it up now? just after the whole thing about her and the high probability of her doing her own death threats soon after asking for money.
This is an excellent question that I cannot possibly answer on a granular level. Every dangerous situation is different, and each requires a different (particular) response. In the past few years, I’ve:
- Nearly fallen through well over a dozen floors, had stairs fall out from under me, had brick walls nearly collapse on top of me, etc.
- Been charged at by an angry urbanized coyote on the third floor of an asylum in Georgia.
- Encountered angry scrappers with power tools and few morals who would gladly relieve me of my camera gear if they could.
- Had giant chunks of plaster fall sixty or more feet and nearly hit me in the head in a derelict movie palace.
- Been inside a building for over three hours while it burned, the fire moving closer to me.
- Encountered more dangerous chemicals and gasses than I care to think about.
- Evaded armed soldiers and cops, jumped over fences with concertina (razor) wire, hid out for hours in a building in subzero temperatures to avoid detection, spoofed PIR motion detectors, and so on.
- Taken boats across treacherous waterways in the middle of the night.
And so on. And the only unifying thing in my responses to each situation is that I went with my gut and my instincts. A few general thoughts though: Don’t attempt buildings that are out of your depth. I’ve been doing this for 19+ years, and have had time to build up my instincts and intuitions. Start small, learn how to navigate dangerous spaces, and work your way up to the “bigger”, higher-profile targets. During your first few years of this, never go anywhere alone, and make sure that everybody in your group has a mobile phone with reception. Trust your gut, and if something doesn’t feel right, just leave. No photograph or experience is worth risking your life for (unless you’re me, but I’m nuts). And finally… always carry superglue. Because in a pinch, if you sustain a serious injury, gluing it shut can mean the difference between enough time to reach an emergency room and exsanguination. Good luck, and be safe!
