My newest article on Obama's online spending for this election - did you know he spent more than it cost to build the Lincoln memorial? Say that, both candidates did spend almost 1 billion each on this election. I can think of a few better places they could spend that money... http://econsultancy.com/us/blog/11050-obama-outspends-romney-online-during-election2012-infographic

Hey - I'll be hosting this upcoming Hangout about writing for games with special guest Steve Ince who wrote Broken Sword - The Sleeping Dragon. Super excited!
 
This week's hangout on air focused on how to write for games with host and writer/ director, Heather Taylor, and special guest Steve Ince, who wrote Broken Sword – The Sleeping Dragon. This hangout will be at 11 am EDT (for you east coasters) and 4 pm GMT (for all you in the UK!)

We so excited to have him on and already have a million questions buzzing around our heads! You too can ask questions in advance or join us as we talk live on air. A couple other guests may join us too!

Every week come join our new Hangout on Air series, The Creators, where we talk to people working in creative fields on how-tos in their work, what their day to day life entails, and how they got there.

Use #TheCreators to follow along on Twitter and add us on Google + so you can join in our hangouts https://plus.google.com/u/1/b/109828369042677228609/109828369042677228609/

To tell you a little more about Steve, here is part of the bio from his blog:
Steve Ince is an award-nominated Writer-Designer with 19 years of game development experience.

Starting out as an artist at Revolution Software, he moved over to production before settling into a writing and design role.  He has played an important part in the success of a number of critically acclaimed games, including Beneath a Steel Sky, Broken Sword and In Cold Blood.

Broken Sword – The Sleeping Dragon was a highlight of Steve’s time at Revolution.  The game was awarded Game of the Year by the UK national newspaper, The Independent, as well as receiving three BAFTA nominations, including Best Game Design.

Sounds cool huh? Well he is! As is this recent piece he wrote that says all the reasons we NEED writers working on games: http://www.steve-ince.co.uk/blog/?p=1284

Story
Tagline
Hi I'm Heather Taylor. I’m a writer and director based in New York and London. I currently work at Social@Ogilvy as their VP, Head of Social Content and Strategy. I am formally the Editorial Director of Econsultancy, where I wrote about digital marketing in North America. I'm also the founder of Red on Black Productions where I make web series, films and transmedia projects that have been seen around the globe.
Introduction

Heather leads the development of global practice content as well as delivering social strategy for clients and new business development. Based in our New York City headquarters, she is a key member of the global team at Social@Ogilvy - Ogilvy’s social media marketing and communications practice.  The world’s largest network of social media strategists, the team believes in the power and impact of truly integrated social media business solutions.

She has developed and executed social media and communications strategy for PayPal UK, giffgaff, and the BBC. Most recently, Heather was the North American Editorial Director for Econsultancy, a global online publication for digital marketers with a monthly audience of over half a million readers. At the BBC, Heather brought 60 corporate websites into one central award winning site and trained over 200+ communications staff on crisis communications in social media. As social media lead at PayPal UK, she developed a social media platform for consumers (integrating audio, video and written content) alongside an integrated Lithium forum managed by the PayPal customer service team, a first for PayPal globally. Heather has recently been included as one of the voices of Microsoft's Business Reimagined in 2013.

Heather’s most successful foray into social media came after the London riots, when she amassed over 500 people in South London to clean their streets. This group, branded the Broom Army, hit front papers around the world and Heather was awarded a Local Heroes award for her efforts. Her twitter handle is: @HeatherATaylor

Bragging rights
Wrote the first ever Bengali Western and organised the Broom Army in Clapham to clean up after the London Riots in 2011.
