Game CEO Sees "Gamification" of Work and Military

Goblez Model != Game (115 comments)

If modeling things using a decent interface constitutes gaming, though it does not.
"Game design can be such a pure interaction. I mean, many games are just interaction."
What a lame quote. Office is a great game, think of all the interaction!

Goblez Re:Not to sounds like a video snob ... (171 comments)

Now my kids can watch their Cartoons downstairs while I stream HD on my XBox upstairs. Sounds like a win for me.

Ex-Astronaut Developing Plasma Rocket To Revitalize NASA

Goblez Video? (277 comments)

Anyone else disappointed in the 'video'. Nothing like some CGI and then some still photographs to NOT sate the urge to see a plasma engine in use.

No Social Media In These College Stadiums

Goblez Re:Or Whatever the SEC version is. . . (265 comments)

How about "haha, Bama got beat by a better team that went undefeated for the second time in four years". Oh wait, that might lend some creditability that you implied the MWC doesn't deserve . . . . /rant

Swedish Pirate Party Gains 3000 Members In 7 Hours

Goblez Re:Wow.... (410 comments)

Hahahaha. The truth is that most of these supporters probably are 'leachers', unwilling to actually expend their own effort to support it. But hey, isn't that 95% of America's political party 'supporters' as well?

ACLU Sues Penn Prosecutor For Empty Threat of Child Porn

Goblez Re:The Children? (590 comments)

Or we could let the parents handle it themselves, and give them their right to make a correct or incorrect decision. But no, that's not the current fad, we need some nanny/big brother to step in and do it for us. On the upside, perhaps the children will come to realize that even their parent's aren't allowed choice either. A good (yet hard) lesson to learn young.

First Mars-Goers Should Prepare For a One-Way Trip

Goblez Re:Who Chooses? (528 comments)

The settlers were people who were so fed up with the way their government was run that they would risk everything they had to escape it.

Where do I sign up? Get to go to another planet (boyhood dream) AND get away from the three centuries of built up corruption? Deal.

Side note: Why do you think people in the past have chosen to leave over fixing what is wrong with their governments? Is it due to the vast number of entrenched bureaucrats that are satisfied to maintain the system that they think benefits them? Or that people in power have a habit of maintaining that power? Is it that the only other good alternative is Revolution?
