Funny website Cease and Desist Order

No Comments

a student of mine (John Cintolo), created a website about “Hit Club Music Summer 2010″, with links to YouTube videos. No copyright infringment or anything illegal.

And one day later, he gets a “cease and desist” letter from HotNewClubSongs.. It has so many gems that I will list it here, for your viewing pleasure.

I bet the blog post and exposure will further push him ahead of others. Too funny.

LimeWire is dead

No Comments

P2P file-sharing enabler LimeWire finally lost its long-running battle against music-industry heavy hitters on Tuesday.

“As of today, we are required to stop distribution and support of LimeWire’s P2P file-sharing service as a result of a court-ordered injunction,” reads a statement by Lime Company CEO George Searle on the company’s website.

Does this mean the end to P2P?  Is Frostwire next?

Visual context for your Google Analytics data

No Comments

When looking at Google Analytics reports, sometimes it’s difficult to visualize how visitors navigate on a given website page. To make this visualization easier, some users keep the website open in another browser tab so they can reference it while looking through reports. Others rely on the Site Overlay report in Google Analytics, which, admittedly, hasn’t worked as well it could.

Today, we’re happy to share with you a bit of what we’ve been working on to address this problem. We’re releasing a new feature into beta: In-Page Analytics. With In-Page Analytics, you can see your Google Analytics data superimposed on your website as you browse.

Fundamentals of Game Design

No Comments

Starting out creating an interactive experience, of any sort really, can be rather daunting. In this tutorial, we’ll run through the basic components of a game, so we can get a handle on what the next steps are when you make the jump from the training tutorials to your own projects.

Often people have trouble when conceptualizing a game. The idea, after all, is often the easy part. It’s actually making it, and figuring out where to start, that is the hard part.

Very interesting read.  Just makes sense.
