Sunday Links #15

Another batch of links for this week. This time we’ll start off with two shameless self-promotions:

If you want to find out what kind of Game Development job you should be doing, then consult the above diagram. Also handy to check if you’re currently in the right job for you.

Also, just to make sure I’m not misunderstood: This is an attempt at humor. I’ve spent a couple hours spread out over the last weeks to craft this politically incorrect diagram. It was originally inspired by the Career Diagram. Compared to the inspiration I have to admit I might have gone a little over-board regarding the size of the thing (and thus the complexity). In my defense: there were just too many cynical jokes to make to pass up! 🙂

Feel free to share.

Sunday Links #12

Another meaty sert of links for this week. A bunch of interesting stuff has been happening. Commentary will be a bit brief though, since I’m pressed for time.

Oddly enough, the rise of the nerds ™ has become so hilariously mainstream, that the coolest character in a super hero movie are the nerds. Nice to see, considering I self-identify as a nerd. I am wondering though if nerds no longer glorify “jocks” but instead “nerds”. It’s not just about the Hulk, it’s a lot about Banner being a scientist. Regardless of my musings: the movie is indeed as awesome as people say so go watch it. Quick before the heavy meme-ification of the movie spoils you.
