For some reason I've felt like writing about various topics lately. I think mainly because I haven't had the time to think about exploring other ideas lately. I've never been one for posting a lot of stuff publically so this is kind of an experiment. We'll see if it continues. Surely don't expect anything here regularly. But when I feel like writing about something I find interesting... well then I will.
So tomorrow I'm going to give a lunch talk at Amazon. They didn't really give me a topic so I'm going to talk about what I want, which is Uber, our games and UberNet our F2P back-end platform. Generally speaking I don't do a lot of public speaking. Not for any particular reason as I'm quite comfortable in front of a crowd.
I think lately mainly I'm more interested in it because I feel like I'm doing interesting things and thinking interesting things that need to be talked about more. I was also inspired by John Stevenson's talk last year at dice. He swore like a motherfucker and got away with it because of how he worked the crowd. I realized I don't need to be uptight and should let most of my real personality shine through.
I also figure if I give enough talks and people aren't entertained that the whole things will sort itself out somehow in the end. Think of it as a market response.
