Perhaps you like the idea of FPV (first-person view) drone racing, but you’re a little uncomfortable with the thought of piloting a rapidly-moving quadcopter through the air. If you are, then maybe FPV car racing would be more to your liking. Although hobbyists have been doing it on a DIY basis for years, there’s a…
Was a great book when it launched, some really simple concepts (like checking you have an audience before you make the product) that many people do tend to miss.
I’ve done a lot of pitching and this book explains why you can’t download a template pitch off the internet and just fill in your data. I think of pitching as telling a story and this book makes it really clear why the “Why” matters.
This is a short and very simple book that just reminds you that an offer can be improved, and offers ideas on how to think about improving it. It wasn’t a GREAT book, I just keep finding myself thinking about the ideas when I see someone pitching a product.
This is really a psychology book, with really interesting examples of how changing a few words can impact a business. A good example was “Will you call our restaurant if you can’t make your reservation” vs “Please call”. Saying “Will you” gets a commitment and can improve the business.
Seth Godin writes a lot of books, but this one remains one of my favorites thinking about teams and social groups.
Modern thinking on how to improve engagement.
Let the countdown begin! Just one more year…
I’m really surprised to be typing that there’s going to be a new ZX Spectrum, it’s been FOREVER since my career really took off developing games for the original one. My big break was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (called the Hero Turtles in the UK), that gave me a #1 Hit and plenty of work followed.
It’s now a museum piece of hardware and so I must admit I’m excited to see this team making a new one, it’s a retro dream! (Heck, it even looks cool!)
They have a surprise in the FAQ that it will run ZX81 games as well. Are you kidding?
I just signed up for their newsletter… Will be interesting to see it develop.
I’m obviously biased when it comes to certain games (working for Sony PlayStation) so I try to avoid game-spamming. As I’ve been in the industry a long long time, I’m lucky enough to get to vote on games I respect, and this is definitely one of them. The work that went into this game is pretty remarkable and I’d highly recommend you give it a try.
