#Tropico  4 is free on +Humble Bundle - REALLY love what these guys are doing!  To our friends in the +GeekyAntics  community: jump on this before it's too late.  GREAT game!
The world is changing and Tropico is moving with the times - geographical powers rise and fall and the world market is dominated by new players with new demands and offers - and you, as El Presidente, face a whole new set of challenges. If you are to triumph over your naysayers you will need to g...

Less than 48 hours on one of the most ambitious indie game Kickstarters we've ever seen. Hip-hop, retro, life lessons, epic battles, phat loot, and crazy boss battles combine to make a SUPER DOPE experience. http://bit.ly/reelise

+Stan Faryna speaks about #ReElise  (the #indiegame  not the #filmfestival  ) and the message of hope that's delivered in both the game's story and the journey +Justin Fox has embarked upon.

We at the +GeekyAntics Network have helped take many #funding  intiatives from zero to hero.  The challenge with #crowdfunding  on +Kickstarter is that you have to identify the audience and need that exists today before you can build up a new movement or push for high-concept projects.

There are many things we've learned in our support for this project and others like it.  Specifically, the #Christianvideogame  space is quite barren.  If you do a search, most of the results are unrelated, negative, or unremarkable.

What this tells us is that this is truly a ground level opportunity.  That's exciting!  We have an underdog story in the making but that also means this is the phase where things will be the hardest.  One thing I urge content creators, small business owners, and entrepreneurs about is this: don't let negativity stop you.

The more pushback you get, the more people doubt what you're doing, the more audiences don't click with your idea..  That's all good because, if it's plain to see, the opportunity isn't really there.  The "trick" to marketing is bridging that gap between your vision and the actual need; that is, adjusting your messaging so that it clicks with people without compromising what makes it unique.

What do you guys think?  I know that's a lot to take in but I am inspired and excited here.  Hope y'all are having an awesome week!!

It's amazing how far tech has come that we now look at even GB as small, relatively speaking.  Back in the early days of video games and microcomputers, 4K apps was common and 64K was a huge jump.  Then there was the jump to 1MB and 8MB.  Now we have software that ranges from 2GB to 120GB, making storage in the TBs crucial.  It's insane because this has happened in the course of around three decades if you really stop to think about it.  YIKES!

#infographic #terabyte #gigabyte #megabyte #kilobyte #storage #computers #computing #technology  
 
How Many Current Webpages Would Fit On Old Tech? #infographic #cool
 
2MB is really an average. I've seen images on pages that are already 2MB :)
 
Kind of surprised that with mobile being so big, pages aren't getting smaller (faster).

Story

Just another Internet entrepreneur looking to connect and help "the little guys".

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

  • NISM
    Advisor & Contibutor, 2010 - present
    I first joined the National Institute of Social Media (NISM) as SME and voluntary contributor. I drafted close to 60-80% of the items in the first iteration of the exam. I was also heavily involved in the psychometrics and balancing of the exam. Today, I function as Secretary on the Board of Advisors. I am very detail-oriented and enjoy documentation so this is a role I quite enjoy. We are in the process of refining the exam and exploring new offerings. Please note that this is a consultant capcity role and I am not a full-time employee of the NISM.
  • 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! LIVE
    Co-Host, 2013 - present
    Join us over at the ObioneX2 Twitch channel at 11pm EDT every Thursday, as well as my own Yogizilla-branded social media outposts for a podcast dedicated heavily to LoL, Hearthstone, gaming, technology, 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 a conflict of core principles and vision, 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.

Truth be told, I haven't had the need to use Martin Septic Tank Services (thankfully) but Vince Martin is a wonderful person to work with. He's very down-to-earth and approachable. I can tell he is attentive and meticulous about details, too. Vince is what you'd call "a good 'ol boy". Support a local provider and help out your community. I always try to go local because it helps build communities up. I would definitely recommend Martin Septic Tank Services to anyone in the Milledgeville / Middle Georgia area - no hesitation!
