Find a balance. You don't have to go to every single event, it's just a scene. Show face, get to know names. It helps, but it's not necessarily because those people you're meeting will individually make or break your journey, but because collectively it's great to have support.

Personally I find support through my non-startup friends as well, but sometimes they will become sick of hearing about startups swings.

Very stoked on The Witness but also Firewatch: www.firewatchgame.com

These are the kind of games I can get down with, a good slow ambiance based puzzle game—had enough of RTS and FPS for the time being.

Wow that Firewatch trailer is really well done. Adding it to my todo/play list.

Whoa! How have I not heard of this game? That trailer looks amazing!

Was just telling a non-tech friend about Wit. Try, explaining NLP and classifiers to someone who isn't quite sure what dictation is, made for a quick ride up the chair lift at Kirkwood.

Glad it's written in Swift.

I wish I'd obscured the amazon links behind bitly, or my own server, or anything!

-----


bitly won't work. pinterest follows and "strips" redirects to generate link title and thumbnail. you need to have your own url shortener with pinterest's crawler either blocked or served different content. an interesting idea would be to host the links on a domain/service they can't easily block (i.e. tumblr) and do the redirect to amazon using javascript.

This part was murky yes, but whatever the policy, they didn't shut me down...

I actually recoded the SaturdaysNYC frontend with Ginlane, around the same time I did this. Great team at that agency. http://www.saturdaysnyc.com/

So dumb for not doing this.
