Last year, we identified three core areas we want to do more of at RPS: hardware, video, and guides. We’d dabbled in all three previously but hadn’t had the chance to fully commit. Last November we hired our hardware editor, over the past six weeks we’ve hired two video producers, and now we have our first guides writer: please join me in welcoming Dave Irwin to the team.

Meet Matthew Castle, our new video person

A couple of years ago, RPS dipped its toes into YouTube. We asked some of our friends to produce short series for us, and the results were good. It made us realise that what we do could work in video, but also that we’d need a full-time team to do it properly.

Now we’ve hired the first part of that team. Please welcome Matthew Castle to Castle Shotgun. Read the rest of this entry »

Hivemind Restored: Welcome Adam Smith

Every new person gets a session with Horace.

It was a long, interesting process. When RPS put out the appeal for a new writer to plug into the hivemind™, we were never expecting not only the incredible volume of applicants, but the extraordinarily high standards. Over 300 people applied for the position, and in there were many absolutely fantastic candidates. It was not an easy decision by any means, which is partly why it’s taken us so very long. But one writer stood out, in terms of the specialisms we were hoping for combined with just really great writing. He, you may have guessed, is Adam Smith.
