I've come to the opinion over the years that age is just a number. Its only definite significance is how long a person has been alive.

Someone who's around longer in a company isn't necessarily better at a job.
Someone who's older isn't necessarily wiser or more mature
Someone who's older doesn't necessarily have 'bigger' problems.
Someone who's older doesn't necessarily have the answers to those problems.

At the end of the day, I borrow a phrase i learnt from a friend, every situation is different. And how things are, and will be, is dependent on a multitude of factors.

Life has so many variables. Gaming is so much easier.

Actually pretty true
You're suddenly a dad/uncle/"uncle" and it's like whoa, this is awesome/fucking bizarre.

CEOs have a massive and disproportionate impact on a organization, more than most people realize. They are a vital channel if you want to something to happen, and the more senior you get, the more

Simulating a 4 player game so I can figure out how to play this (Game of Thrones). Feels a little daunting so far.

+Jeremy Williams red dragon inn didn't go over that well with our group... It's not like we hated the thing but it didn't capture us like some other games... Maybe we'd played it too sober?

During times of trouble, any information vacuum will be filled by speculation.

Google+ tips. Some really useful stuff here
 
Gotta love Google+
Google is slowly but surely improving Google+ and trying to bring the social network to the masses. Yet some of Google+'s best features are less than obvious for both avid Google Plussers and those who are still wondering what the point of it is. Here are some of the more interesting or at least useful tips for getting the most out of Google+.

Thinking of backing this. Looks interesting with the board/mobile integration. Any thoughts on this?
A mobile-enhanced board game about lying to your friends, stealing from your allies, and cheating your way to victory.

I read the title and the description, and I thought of the Firefox Collusion. Frighteningly, it still worked.

Story
Introduction
Hi, I'm interested in a variety of things that revolve around technology and business and particularly how the two can come together to make the world a much better and happier place.

I have been in the web development space since 2005 with experience in PHP and Java ( in addition to the normal stuff like HTML, CSS, etc ). Since 2009, I've moved into the mobile development space currently with experience in BlackBerry and Android development.

I am currently working in a startup company, Senseless Labs, that seeks to implement game mechanics as a means to solve various every day problems. We are currently working on a product called Streetegy that aims to bridge the relationship divide between friends and also between businesses and their customers. Senseless Labs is also experimenting with NFC for various implementations and would love to work with anyone else who might be interested in NFC and/or game mechanics.

Other than business and technology, I have a keen interest in issues surrounding education, entrepreneurship and sustainable development. I support microloans ( specifically Kiva right now) as a smarter way to help alleviate poverty. The problems that stem from microloans are also areas of discussion I would love to be a part of.

I maintain a personal blog over at http://ridz.sg/blog
