O hai

O hai there Internet didn’t see you there, maybe you where wondering what I was up to.
Ok then maybe a quick preview.

First, I am in the process of maybe starting my own little company so I have been a bit preoccupied with that, and in that process I am also rethinking the purpose of this site, previously I have been forced (well according to the format of the site) to write larger rants or maybe whole detailed tutorials, well in my opinion it’s been a bit inflexible, having only smaller posts doesn’t suit me either, I tried such a system, and it didn’t work that well.

Also I have over 50 posts and it’s starting to be a bit crowded on the right.
So what’s the solution then, well i’m transforming the site a little, away goes the big wall of text that greets you, instead you will meed a wall of links and presentation of the sites content think http://www.theinquirer.net/, http://www.pcworld.com/ or http://www.engadget.com/.

Not that I will ever compete with them but you might get an idea of the look and feel of the site.
When it comes to content I will start to add a few things like reviews(especially games, which is probably the first thing to come on line) , opinion pieces on new technology and gadgets (since I will probably not get to test them myself unless I own them) and mini tutorials in openGL(not as much code as previously, more like a short explanation in how it works) and other things.
On top of that I will also have stuff like some of my my youtube favorites, a personal section, with something similar to twitter, though not exactly like it.
There will be a lot more other stuff on it as it will have a pretty solid framework as well for future updates.

Now in addition to this and in conjunction with me starting my own business I will now actually try to make some money of this site, though affiliates, ads and selling stuff.
The first things I was thinking about is writing and selling e-books, maybe a few small games, and definitely web scripts and the like.

Please comment if you have any suggestion or interest in any of this

Now speaking of games, the ultimate goal of my company is to grow to a AAA game studio and because there already is a game studio called flashbangstudios and as I actually won’t do any flash games I might have to get a new site, suggestions are welcome.

Finally here’s a mock up I made, of cause it won’t look exactly like this, but it’s a good indicator on how the personal page will look like.
Don’t take any text you see there seriously, I actually stole a big chunk of it from pc world.

I don’t know when it will be done but my guess is that I will actually write a few more posts on this site before that happens.

    Congratulation on your new company.

    Articles about games technology – how its made (ideas n techniques), will be nice – don’t have to be too technical (code here n there) and too formal.. graphics progamming are fun :)

    Cheers..
