Check out my latest project, “Imperium: Galactic War.”
I got to see some really cool stuff over the last few days. But I’m not allowed to talk about it. LOL Oh well.
I was just making this point to someone today… It is so true. Marketers Who Share Content Drive Traffic, Gain Customers [INFOGRAPHIC]
I still like to play with code every once in a while. For the last few years I have mostly been working on Creative and Strategy, but when I first got into the tech business I was all about the code. It has always been a love hate relationship for me. But it has been fun looking through some of the little experiments I have done.
I don’t like to travel with a laptop, and a lot of times I just have my iPad with me. What I found frustrating is, most of the little projects and experiments I had done in the past used keyboard controls to make them work. I was wondering how can I make this work on a touch screen. I tried a number of different solutions and I was not completely happy with any them. After digging to see what other people are doing I came across a really interesting developer named Seb Lee-Delisl… He had created a really simple elegant controller. I have been playing around with it for a bit.
If you have your iPhone or iPad check out the example I have posted. I am now working on incorporating it into some of the things I have created in the past. Fingers crossed that I don’t have to rewrite them from scratch… Cause I don’t know if I’ll get around to doing it.
Check it out, but remember it will now work with a mouse or keyboard. DEMO
I just tried to get it to work on Android devises. It was a little wonky. It only partially worked on a Droid, I think it has trouble handling multipul touch events. Seem a lot of the Android devises touch drivers are a little sub-par. I could not get anything to render on a Kindle, which surprised me… All I got was a black screen. Not sure how it handles HTML5 Canvas.
I was actually looking for something else on my servers for my portfolio when I came across one of the first things I did in HTML5. I can’t even tell you how long ago this was, or why I even did this. I looked back at the code and it is pretty simple, so I played around with it a little and and got got it to work mostly with my iPhone as well… Go to the mobile version of my site and check it out… Now I need to change the space invaders game so it can work mobile too… not sure how yet though
While looking through endless directories on my server for any content I could find that might still be relavent, I came across a Space Invaders clone that I built for fun.
I did this way back when I use to still think coding was fun (like 1996 or 1997) I use to do little experiments for fun all the time. I totally forgot about this one. There are many more I ran across. I’ll post them as I find them, or the pieces of them.

I was recently asked to describe myself. I was interviewing for a rather interesting position and we were going over my background. “You are a creative, with a strong technical background, with a ton of Strategy, Operations and business experience. So what are you?”
I was never asked what I was like that before. As to sum up all my experiences in a single phrase and say who I am. It is true, I have been a Creative Director, A buiness owner, a COO and a CTO. I have run operations and have created new business opportunities that did not exist before. I have a finance background and have done mergers and acquisitions. And I have sales experience I have pitched fortune 500 companies and won.
I left the meeting, knowing I did not answer that question. I know they did not get a good sense of who I am… Yeah I blew the interview. But when I look back at all the things I have done in my life, there is 1 common thread to it all. I have looked at every situation differently then other and have found solutions, or different ways of doing things then other people have tried.
I now know what I am. I am not a mix of all the titles and roles and responsibilities I have had in the past. I am 3 things. I am a creative problem solver with a very good people IQ who knows how to manage almost every situation and get the job done. No matter what the task may be. Doesn’t matter what my title was at such and such company.
