the future of computer games05/31/06 at 10:05 am | Posted in Gaming, Tech | 9 Comments
Got an e-mail from Quentin Staes-Polet, the digital media leader for Asia Pacific of IBM Global Services/Business Consulting Services. Quentin and I did a podcast on the future of online games when we were in Mumbai. This was hosted by Nick Jacobs, who was then with IBM but is now Intel's corporate communications manager for Asia Pacific. Nick was the guy who came up with the idea for the podcast and made it happen.
Quentin told me to check out the IBM homepage, saying "Hey Joey, you are a star" 🙂 IBM now has a spiffy new section on gaming — click on the "Explore the future" link in the huge "Games grow up" feature.
And yup, if you click on the "More from the experts" link in the gaming section, you'll see our podcast featured. I think that's my face haha but that's not my hair and that's definitely not my body. At least they made me thin again, woo-hoo! Too bad, I was wearing a hackenslash T-shirt during the podcast — what a global promotion for hackenslash that would have been, heh 🙂
If you haven't listened to the podcast yet, check it out. We had a lot of fun doing it.
Thanks, Quentin! Thanks, Nick!
