I ran across the Quintus project the other day. From the homepage it claims to be:
I poked around the docs a little bit and it seemed pretty solid and simple…I don’t have any free bandwidth right now to mess with it, but I’m definitely going to keep it in mind for the next time I’m looking to dabble with building a game.
Later this morning I am participating in a panel called “Angel Investing in Action” at the 2014 Pipeline Fellowship Conference here in NY. The goal of the Pipeline Fellowship is to have more women angel investors (currently only about 1 in 5 in the US). This is a terrific endeavor as it will…
This is a great list of core ‘rules’ by Albert…and if *you* are someone who is following them and believes in helping kids get more active and more out of their physical activities…then I would love to connect/chat with you as well! ;-)
One of my favorite things about travel, especially flying, is that I get forced down time to catch up on some reading. So while my trip this past weekend was fairly short - I did get at least a little time to do some reading.
The first on my list was “Power Stories" by Valerie Khoo.
Overall it’s a pretty short but great read about how stories, more than anything else, drive what we feel and even how we act.
I enjoyed it so much that I actually started it when I first got to the airport and had finished it by the end of my flight!
For awhile now I’ve been telling those close to Coach Wizard that I’m more concerned with getting our story properly set in users minds than I am in ‘getting the product or features just right’…in fact I think getting the story right is specifically what drives getting the product and features just right (doing it in a different order just doesn’t work).
This book not only enforced that belief, it provided some other really great and inspirational stories to use as a bit of guide with.
Anyway - I would highly recommend getting a copy.
NYTimes wrote a nice piece about the reclusive Bill Watterson. He emerges from retirement to illustrate the one-sheet for STRIPPED, the forthcoming documentary film about comic strips.
Bill Watterson is a treasure.
This looks really interesting to me. Can’t wait to check it out!
And I thought the Coach Wizard UI was complex…
