So, Titanfall? Awesome. I've been so focused on enjoying the game that I never remember to say "Xbox, record that" to catch one of the many epic moments its been praised for. Bananas!

An interesting look at the rise and fall of a storied development studio. Perhaps not surprisingly, I like Ken Levine a lot, and the picture painted here is exactly the kind of guy I thought he was. I'll take a truly creative, ambitious boss with a mean streak any day if it means working on something I'm truly passionate about. Life's too short to be happy shipping crap.

It’s the non-gaming aspects of the Xbox One that I find most intriguing because I don’t believe “next gen” will ultimately be defined by graphics, and the first real example of that is Twitch.

Per Google research, “Gamers are an important driver of brand engagement, as they create, curate, and share content.” And that’s where Twitch comes in and things get really interesting.

As +Dan Blank notes, there's no ONE right way to use social media, but if you're only using it because it's your job, you're simply not going to be as effective as someone who understands and embraces the social aspect.

Tthe best mass media aims for a personal connection; social media makes those connections more likely. If it ain't real, it ain't real.

Say it ain't so, Project Spark!

I'm still looking forward to checking out the Beta on Xbox One, and totally understand the realities of free-to-play, but this is the first I've seen Spark Tokens being mentioned, and 5,000 @ $49.99 is pretty steep. What might they be for?

Apparently the Tokens are what you use to buy the "Lego-style construction kits" at $10/kit. http://bit.ly/1fXPNgd

Bloomberg got a lot wrong during his reign, but his pedestrian/cycling-centric revamp of key streets is all right.

Introduction
Guy LeCharles Gonzalez is an old/new media pragmatist who works in publishing and plays the field. He’s sometimes loud, sometimes poet, and always opinionated.

Professionally, he is the Director, Content Strategy & Audience Development for Media Source / Library Journals, LLC, and the former Director of Programming & Business Development for Digital Book World. He’s a published poet and journalist, former National Poetry Slam champion, and recently self-published an echapbook of poetry entitled Handmade Memories.

Personally, he’s a father, husband, writer, reader, poet, gamer, long-suffering NY Mets and Jets fan, who prefers Jockamo IPA and Buffalo Trace bourbon. The combination is wonderfully complicated and quite simple, really.

He can be rather outspoken at times and does not suffer fools gladly, so nothing he says on any social network is meant to be representative of his employers — past, present or future.

Great little restaurant; a little pricey, especially for the casual service, but the food is worth it. The Jalea Imperial and Churrasco will leave you very satisfied.

Teeters on the edge of being too hipster, but great food and a nice selection of craft beers and good bourbon balances the scales nicely. The bacon caramel popcorn is a must on every visit!
