Receta de Puchero

pucheroReceta típica de Andalucía. Ideal para los fríos días de invierno. No tiene mucho aporte calórico y es deliciosa, fácil de hacer y muy sana. Los extranjeros las llaman sopa de pollo, los madrileños, cocido, pero no es exactamente una sopa de pollo y tampoco un cocido, es… puchero, y tal y como se dice en Andalucía, el puchero resucita a los muertos.

Twitter launches 6-second video service.. Twitter´s first porn gaffe

Accidentally promoting pornography on a new social media service is not the ideal way to generate interest in your offerings, but that’s what Twitter accidentally did on Monday on its new Vine video service. Twitter blames ¨human error¨ for pornographic video being placed as an editor’s pick on its newly launched Vine service.

BJSS begins serving U.S. Customers

bjss-highlights-five-essentials-‘no-surprises-end-game’-project-delivery

Its fantastic news seeing BJSS continue to expand with their New York office opening for business yesterday. I was lucky to have worked with these guys for 10 years during their start-up period growing the company from 10 to 150 people. I gained an incredible amount of experience and exposure to technical and project challenges (detailed here) across the Financial Services, Commodity Trading, Media and Telecom sectors while learning my trade from some of the technologists people out there.

The King Reigns

king.com is being sold as a rocketship success.. to me they are a methodical set of pragmatists. three things they seem to have done well to this point: they run all games at an MVP level until it gets a significant audience in their beta-games lab, they are truly multiplatform, they develop their beta version with a skeleton crew. impressive. I can hear the Street trying to promote these guys into a decent IPO for 2014.

Investing in Social and Mobile Games

Good article on the current game business environment. even if you are not doing app dev, it will be important to understand the major shift. it was a bit like the poker bubble in 2005… anything related to poker sold because of the Partypoker valuation. but that bubble was burst temporarily by the UIEGA and permanently killed by the reality that poker players have small LTVs.
