Imagine if gaming and geek communities were like #Cheers, where everybody knows your name.  That's the vision that +Stan Faryna and other geeks have.  That's why I started http://geekyantics.net - we want to combat the snobbery, toxicity, and elitism out there.  This won't be The Nerdist, where it's really all about one person (Chris Hardwick, we're looking at you).

But I digress...

Let's play some #Hearthstone - it's FREE and it's fun!  Blizzard has done a great job with this game and they are making the game they always wanted to play.  These guys are true geeks, let me tell ya!

I truly believe this is the deckbuilding game for everyone.  Think of the depth of traditional games like chess or poker..  Hearthstone offers that with a learning curve that is not nearly as intimidating.  It's a game you can enjoy in quick bursts or long marathon sessions too.  I can't say enough good things about it.  Hearthstone is not perfect but it is certainly an all-time fave for me, hands-down!

Our Battle Tags are on there so come check out the article.  Leave your thoughts and info in the comments.  Stan needs some fuel to keep this series going strong.

I love this idea and hope you guys are stoked too!  #YOHTAI   #Blizzard  +Blizzard Entertainment 
... Greetings! Hello! This is about Hearthstone. It's about you. It's about us. It's also about games, good game play and, oh yeah, geeky stuff. ... Among other things, a good game provides a platf...

Guilty Until Proven Innocent: Corruption In The RCBOE & The Broken Tribunal System
If you are a parent or high school student, particularly in Georgia, you need to read this.  What you will find is quite shocking and appalling. On Thursday, January 16th 2014, I had the displeasure of witnessing what could best be described as a legalized ...

I don't have enough cute #kittens on my social media outposts. Here you go.

Also, I now have an official Yogizilla G+ profile. YouTube kinda forced me to do it. Now I have split personalities.

Thanks Google! =oP

Wait, the actor who played Egon died?? That sucks. Well, maybe that Saul guy from Warehouse 13 can play him if there is ever a real Ghostbusters revival.
 
Well Egon, sad to see you go before one last adventure with the rest of the gang but at least we'll always have the Twinkie...

I love how fired up Dino gets during his speaking engagements. It's a contagious energy!
 
I just finished revamping my Speaking page with a fancy floating contact box and resized videos and what not. Any constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated. http://dinodogan.com/speaking/

Great.. Google has now made the jobs of small business owners and consultants even harder now. People are plenty paranoid and distrusting as it is, Google.. Thanks! ;o)
 
Hopefully this doesn't get me in trouble. I know Google is watching :)

Its not merely #hashtag reseach, guys, it's brand security, #marketresearch, and social media monitoring. Corporate intelligence if you prefer. Hashtags are not just for the techies and hardcore anymore. 8)
 
Find hashtags used most and most recently with a topic, word, name or an known hashtag

Study tweets that each related hashtag has been used with; from context you can see how the tag's being used, predominately.
Evaluate the influencers on a hashtag, and how many times they are using each.
Learn from the standalone use of hashtags related to your topic or tag - in realtime.
Test your hashtag choices and save your picks as a TagSet - which you'll have available from any web page with the browser extensions.
Measure your results - so you can use hashtags that deliver #returnonhashtags    with Stats and also available right from your browser in  "My Top-Performing Tags."

  • Geeky Antics Network Global
    Founder, 2013 - present
    We are building a media network and syndication platform for geeks worldwide. The goal is to eventually be profitable without killing the creative freedom and authenticity of a smaller network or site. I know we can do it and we're already assembling some great talents and passionate geeks. The future looks AWESOME!
  • Horseplay Podcast
    Co-Host, 2013 - present
    Join us over at the ObioneX2 Twitch and YouTube channels, as well as my own Yogizilla-branded social media outposts for a podcast dedicated heavily to LoL, gaming, and all things geeky. We provide a balanced, fresh perspective for old-school, hardcore, and casual gamers alike.
  • Social Prize
    Co-Founder, 2011 - 2013
    I came into the Social Prize project as consultant and helped the founding partners gain traction. Eventually, I became a partner myself but, due to short-sightedness and bean counting on behalf of my partners, we decided it was best to part ways. Still, I love the concept of crowdsourcing influence, promotion, and other things so I see this as a growing space if people can do it right and see the greater vision.

I'm not one for tooting my own horn (so I'll spare you the boring resume-style machine-gunning of achievements and credentials) but I've been involved with game design and web development since the early nineties.. And I'm still learning. That's the beauty of technology: we can always learn new ways to unlock it's full potential.

 I programmed one of my first applications, a fun little video game that combined Arkanoid (block breaker) and pinball game mechanics, roughly around 1993.  Before that, I had used mostly BASIC to develop simple database applications for personal inventory and quick search purposes.

Like most around that time, I got sucked in by the lure of hefty salaries and cool gadgetry (like the first RIM and Nextel devices).  I pursued IT only to learn that it wasn't what truly fulfilled me.  As such, I moonlighted quite a bit and have been fortunate to learn many skills which I continue to refine today.

My perspective on business is quite unique.  I've been a contractor, full-time employee, ghost writer, temp, moonlighter, and currently self-employed.  I've played the field from virtually every position possible and took on various roles.  Heck, I've even worn the teacher and trainer hats!  Those younget, more innocent (translation: "naive") days fun and a great learning experience (translation: "not always profitable").

One thing I enjoy is taking my creative skills and passion for game mechanics, finding ways to infuse businesses with new life.  The business world needs more soul (please stay away from my brain, zombies) and I can help!

One challenge I've faced as a passionate professional: I really do love the art of what I do and the overall creative process.  I have not been published (much) mainly because I do what I do for the love of it (ah, yes, the 'ol labor of love)..  I've learned you do have to be a *little* selfish sometimes, however, and it is possible to do what you love AND make a living.  I like to help others do the same.

If you'd like to get to know me and learn how I may be able to help you, please visit http://yomar.me - I look forward to seeing you there!

I've managed to work from home and maintain a household of 9.. I'd like to brag but God's grace has kept me patient and mostly sane. A good sense of humor doesn't hurt, either. LOL
