Dear +COSMOSonTV Thanks for Sunday's episode. Now my kiddos keep punching each other and using the "But I didn't actually touch you...." defense.

For any devs here in the SF area, the producer on Diablo II is hosting a "fireside chat" next week in SF! These are usually really great events if you are interested.

Do people not snore on red-eye flights?  Or have I just been really lucky so far?

Oops - I just noticed a typo - upright positions tend to be less snore producing.

Sharing this so I can lord the fact that there's a bit of Mars with my name on it over my only (and likely nonplussed) sibling...
 
Curiosity Update:

Curiosity is currently examining a potential drilling operation on Mars known as "The Kimberly Waypoint."

Named after a remote region of Australia, this major stopping waypoint has been planned since early 2013 for closer study of the Red Planet's rocks. New imagery from the region will be examined as scientists determine potential drilling missions. 

Kimberly is an important area because it lies at the intersection of four different types of rocks. The area originally piqued scientists' interests after being examined by the telescopic cameras aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Check out more detailed pictures of this Martian region:

Sharing so I can use this for something later....
 
Real-time Cyber Threat Map 

Have a look at this very cool visualisation of cyber threats picked up by Kaspersky's security software, as they happen: http://cybermap.kaspersky.com/

And to think this is just a tiny fraction of the amount of malware circulating the globe.  Pro tip: you can interact with the map by clicking on any country to see it’s current statistics.

You know, if I were still academically minded, I could write an entire PhD thesis deconstructing Pirates of the Caribbean.

Story
Tagline
CEO, Gamer girl, Futurist in training
Introduction
After nearly 8 years working in financial services powerhouses like Morgan Stanley and Paine Webber, Kimberly Unger left to pursue her passion for videogames. As a producer she helped develop an initial proof of concept for a USAF operative training program using UT2k4 and has worked in both the entertainment and videogame industries as a texture artist and 3d modeler/animator on such projects as the IMPACT: Motion Simulator ride currently in residence at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, the award winning You Don’t Know Jack: Mock II, Tetris Worlds for all consoles and a host of smaller handheld and mobile titles. She is now CEO of the videogame startup Bushi-go, Inc. developing titles for iOS and Android. You can follow Bushi-go's dev team on twitter at @Agiliste
Bragging rights
Completed 90% of my "bucket list". I can joust, ski, sing a-capella (bring earplugs), break into any car built before 1987 and leave no trace (after 1987, well, that's another story). I am the soccer mom to a budding international spy, the "Dr House" of veterinary medicine and quite possibly the next great American Game Designer (if I can just get him to write this sh*t down)..
Education
  • Art Center College of Design
    Ill, 1995 - 1998
    Graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Illustration and a specialization in Digital Media (back when the Digital Department was still being envisioned).
  • University of California, Davis
    English, 1988 - 1992
    Graduated with a Major in English Literature and a Minor in Writing. Discovered later on that the symbolic languages of literature have a direct parallel in video-games and modern media.
