3 Big data security analytics techniques

Keen to dismiss the image of game players as freaks and geeks, a top British online gamer plans to cycle across the USA.

Andrew Moore, who goes by the charming gaming name Gitface, is a member of the scary-looking UpsetChaps team and a regular winner on the UK public server online games scene.

Although normally found playing Quake 3 or Counterstrike, he plans to leave his natural habitat and cycle from San Francisco to New York in 31 days. That's 3,130 miles (100 miles per day) and 11 states.

This madness is all in a good cause as he's doing it to raise cash and awareness for encephalitis, a rare condition in which the brain becomes inflamed, usually from a viral infection.

You can check out his route here. He starts on 1 September. ®
