the future of computer games

05/31/06 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" πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

If you haven't listened to the podcast yet, check it out. We had a lot of fun doing it.

Thanks, Quentin! Thanks, Nick!

  7. hi sir joey,
    hope you still remember me. i just created a second blog (like a while ago :>) and this might pick your interest:

    http://isulongseoph.nmgresources.ph/blog

    i’m currently promoting Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in the PHilippines. this is also partly an SEO Contest. But, “contest is no object here…” there are promising opportunities in pursuing such career (consider me as one!). you can freely register there and post reply (though it’s still more of a semi-personalized side and my subjective POV about SEO)

    i already provided some basic info about SEO on the index: http://isulongseoph.nmgrecources.ph/

    have a great time reading! thanks for the support!

    cheers, roanne
