Team doing the "Martellus Key" game inside ☾Δμ♇ have been so good at making sure the central hyperlink architecture will work. Their beta testing is incredibly helpful on the games that encourage crowdsourcing real world mysteries and problem solving that we are trying to incorporate in the Storycube/journey.., and extensions out. #ar #VR #tv #film #Ui #ux #GameDev #transmedia #transmediaconvergence #mixedreality #webgl #thecamp #gamedesign #gamedevelopment #cinemaui #arlayers #aranchors #iot #integratedretail #interactivemedia #indiegames #ecommerce

Why Storycube Hyv and synced/layered/interoperable narrative with organic, unobtrusive integrated retail built and chosen by the storyteller (Shakespeare/Old Globe model) and not the platform is the future.

Yahoo should have dominated this past 5 years with being the 2nd screen go to they had 4 different audio and visual sync patents. Instead they floundered. http://www.newyorker.com/business/currency/why-yahoo-couldnt-adapt-to-the-iphone-era

Ok between voting and THIS ... My day is probably gone. Heh 
Amazon has unveiled two new products aimed squarely at the professional game-developer fraternity: Lumberyard, a free 3D game engine; and GameLift, a service for quickly building backends for deploying session-based multiplayer games. Products of Amazon's Web Services (AWS) division, Lumberyard and GameLift are aimed at developers building cloud-connected games that can work across multiple platforms.

1/3 narrative, 1/3 humanitarian, 1/3 retail. I set this standard for Hyv mapping and interface 8 years ago. I have not bent. If we have ecommerce integrated in any scene there need to exist a ratio of minimum 1:1:1 of additional interface in the frame or a balance within each scene. I am challenged on it every day but my most essential and valuable asset (and any integrated retail partners) is not just how strong the emotion, appetite and utility flow is created in a scene but overwhelmingly... That that only happens with audience trust. Audience will always rely on me to manipulate action via reaction for story first, audience's humanity second and any fallout of that flow can safely place organic purposeful ecommerce into whatever trickles down from there. Sounds silly and undermining of the ROI at first but in the long run that has to be an ethical wall we can not cross.

As I go over so much detail in story and religious archetypes... And I read the unfortunate faux pas by @pmarca ... I hope people will take note that all the work, all the research into religion, language and culture to write ☾Δμ♇ was to make sure that although the technical, contractual and fiscal has to be right with cubic narrative... ..cultural has to be too.
Donald Trump is wrong. Not being offensive to your neighbor or your audience matters more than looking like a schmuck because you think you should be allowed to. Success comes to those who understand the difference between offending an oppressive power structure and offending the people who were held back by it.
Marc apologized quickly and wasn't thinking like Trump at all but a lack of cultural understanding and research on respecting the people receiving your message has costly consequences.

Ted Hope sums up why I am psychotic against risk and putting promises /signing contracts that will leave anyone who believed in me's well-being in this snippet story of his own tightrope with risk. (Because I have been through it many times. This is not your typical industry. 14 years keeping the risk low - for everyone besides me - and the work focused). & part of why Ted is one of very few humans in my pantheon of heroes to look up to. http://eatdrinkfilms.com/2014/12/05/hope-for-film-from-the-frontlines/
The following is an excerpt from Hope for Film: From the Frontlines of the Independent Cinema Revolutions by Ted Hope, with Anthony Kaufman.

Story
Tagline
storycuber, ex NBC, ex Sundance Dramatic Competitor, Slamdance, a few awards, a few contracts,... a few... ....blah, blah blah ...got my break in Leaving Las Vegas had a very long journey ...but last ten years have been working on inventing interactive TV & film... taking transmedia to it's next evolution.
Introduction
the guy no one believes in until he's walking from the podium.  You get used to it. (exNBC ex Spelling ex Sundance Dramatic Comp. ex Slamdance etc. etc.  spent the last 10 years figuring out and inventing how interactive film/tv/etc is going to work and reinventing the entertainment model to spread content in IP instead of a model where we restrict it).

My break in production  - Boxing Helena
Break into Acting - as the rapist "Miser" in Leaving Las Vegas
1st Lead - Pariah , one of the first films at Slamdance
1st Professional Theater Lead - Bogosian's subUrbia (Boston premiere) won Eliot Norton Award
1st film as filmmaker- The Autumn Heart accepted for dramatic competition at Sundance.
1st contract as a "creator" NBC
1st...blah blah blah blah blah
Bragging rights
My first line on screen... "I want to ____ you in the ______" worthy of Shakespeare. (Kidding -rent Leaving Las Vegas to see) & Aaron Spelling upon first meeting me after signing me, before even saying hello... "I wish I could do what you do to the human heart on the budgets you've had.".

Saw this review looking for his new addresss & had to write something... Dr. Mike-Mayer has been one of my doctors for 10years. Have to say don't know what that other review was about but it sounds odd. He's a great doc. Overwhelmingly professional. Crazy. I know fact was he was even picked by New Hampshire magazine as one of the 10 best family Docs in the state. Don't think stuff like that happens randomly? Best thing about him have to say (& I know a lot of friends/acquaintances who go to him ... It's a small town) is he listens and talks to you. Never just throws drugs at you or tries to turn you over in 5 minutes like so many Docs do now. (Although I know he was back and forth out of state when he took care of vets and their families coming back from overseas for a while. (In fact pretty sure he was at Ft.Hood when the attack happened there). Sad to see a good doc get a review like the one above. I have never heard anyone (& I've lived in this town a while) have anything but praise for Dr. Mike Mayer ... sounds odd to me. Tbh
