It’s getting to be that time of year when lots of people are doing publicity stunts for various charitable/political/commercial causes, especially beginning in April when seemingly every expedition to the North Pole has some sort of “mission.” Among those managing to earn actual news coverage during the past week was Joachim Haraldsen (a.k.a. Noobwork on YouTube),  who participated in a “Counter-Strike Go” tournament on an allegedly -20C day in Longyearbyen (an exaggerated claim but, hey, it’s a nice round number) as part of a publicity stunt for the local telecom company’s 4G network (you didn’t actually think we were going to give the company free advertising by naming them, did you?).
