All About Donkeljohn
Daily Musings . . . mingled with insights.
With the news of Ray and Greg retiring from games, I wrote this thing over here. I'd be pretty stoked if you read it and commented. Warning: it's not really written for people who play games as much as it is composed for people that start companies.
After working in a few startups over the last 4 years I've really come to appreciate the hard work and team effort that goes into building something from nothing. It's amazing to think almost 20 years ago two doctors got together to build what would be one of the best RPG development houses in the world. Neverwinter Nights was instrumental to helping me break into the game industry and a clear catalyst to landing the job I had at GameSpot. If it wasn't for the Aurora Toolset and the collaboration with some talented college friends, I'd probably would've been writing end-user training manuals for enterprise software all these years (not that there's anything wrong with that).
Today, I'm excited to be helping to build something that has been designed to make the startup life easier, leaner, and more illuminated.I hope to succeed and wouldbe chuffed to bits if you'd share it with your friends on Twitter & Facebook...especially if they are the entrepreneurial type[s].
I wish each of you all the best and will continue to check in here from time to time. Just thought some of you might find the write-up of interest.
Happy playing, my friends!
I'm not sure how many of you like comics, but there are some amazing ideas being created in this thread over here.
If you want the best of the thread distilled down to a nice jumping-on point, click here. If you want to get in there and mix it up, no need to thank me. It was the least I could do.
If you follow comics, where do you usually get your information from?
I've been thinking about doing an updated video proclaiming my undying love of pie.
That video is four years old.
But today's release of the Mr Freeze trailer for Arkham City gave me a renewed desire for some ICE cream.
What flavor do you prefer?

Donkeljohn does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send Donkeljohn a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
