This week is a round-table discussion of what we've been playing and the group trying to hash out what Steam Sharing is and how to use it.
I discuss my crazy, failed attempts at making things in Minecraft with pipes, and we collectively try to figureout what a Voxel is. Filling us in on the Eden Open tournament in EVE Online and her recent computer troubles is resident Split Infinity Radio DJ Christina. A newcomer to the hangout and fledgling app-developer, Eboni, introduces herself and talks about her time playing The Therian Saga and The West. Aimee, who has her new website, fills us in on newly NDA-lifted information on The Elder Scrolls Online.
We end the hangout trying to figure out what Steam Family sharing is and how to use it.
Beau Hindman is the host of Gamer Hangout, with a website coming soon. In the meantime you can see all his videos on his YouTube channel and read his articles on Massively.com.
On A Business Odyssey - Nat Bruno
Mixergy - Andrew Warner- Andrew is probably the best podcast interviewer that I have ever listened to. Andrew interviews entrepreneurs in the tech space about how they grew their companies. He does pre-interviews with his guests and he always asks the tough, uncomfortable questions. His most recent interviews are free but are behind a paywall if you want to download them (which I highly recommend; I am a Mixergy subscriber). Most podcasts are one hour in length.
The Tim Ferriss Show - Tim Ferriss - I've been a long-time follower of Tim since he wrote the Four Hour Workweek. He had a similar podcast type format called the Random Show with Kevin Rose. My gripe with the Random Show was that the hosts were always the same (Tim and Kevin) and it was always unscripted and ‘random’. Tim’s new podcast is great - he has short form recommendations that he writes beforehand and reads off (10-15 minutes in length) and long form interviews with incredibly interesting guests whom he asks very penetrating questions (typically 1-1.5 hours in length). Guests vary but typically revolve around the quantified self movement.
Less Doing Radio - Ari Meisel - Ari’s podcast focuses on how to optimize, automate and outsource tasks in your business and personal life. Efficiency and productivity is a specific niche but one that I believe is growing quickly. If you are an efficiency geek like me, this podcast will be right up your alley. Typically 30-45 minutes in length.
Art of Charm - Jordan Harbinger - One skill that every human being needs is building rapport and connecting with people. Jordan’s podcasts are long form interviews with experts in the networking, espionage, and business communities. Jordan has a tendency to talk too much but he is very good at getting detailed, actionable answers from his guests. Interviews range from 30 minutes up to 1.5 hours.
