    The ocean is never still and neither is life. As I get older in my lifetime I’m beginning to accept that change is going to be a constant in this world. The world of animation is currently going through a changing of the guards, as fabled director Hayo Miyazaki retires. Those are some rather large shoes to fill, and my hope has always been that someone would step up and bring forth a groundbreaking animated feature. There have been some decent attempts, but no studio has come closer than Cartoon Saloon. They made a splash with their first animated feature, The Secret of Kells, a film…

  • Fermi estimation for startup business models

    Jason
    13 Jan 2015 | 9:45 am
    Early in a company’s life, you don’t know anything. Often your best estimate of any metric or market behavior or business model component is at best accurate within a power of ten, for example “expected conversion rate between 0.5% and 5%” or “cost to acquire a customer between $50 and $500″ or “average monthly revenue per customer between $20 and $200.” Estimating with these extremely wide ranges can be surprisingly useful. In physics it’s called “Fermi Estimation.” It’s useful because it’s easy to get to a…

    Do New Year’s resolutions work? Studies say “no.” Maybe asking good questions of yourself is a better way to lift your eyes to the horizon of possibilities for 2015. What good questions have you not taken the time to ask? For boot-strappers: How could you double your take-home profits without additional hires? (Hint: it’s usually increasing price, not cutting costs.) Since money is precious, it’s wise to save but unwise to save so much that it hurts the business, so what’s the single most impactful thing you could spend non-trivial money on? For example,…

    Watch a bunch of interviews of founders of successful companies, and here’s what you don’t hear: We tried eight different marketing channels — AdWords, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, social media, events, retargeting, SEO, guest-posting, PR, and so on. All of them worked a little bit, so together it was substantial — a trickle from each that added up to a river. Then we optimized each of them, improving each a bit more every month, and sure enough revenue doubled every year. That’s never how it works. Spreading your precious money and even more…

    The first 90 percent of the code accounts for the first 10 percent of the development time. The remaining 10 percent of the code accounts for the other 90 percent of the development time. — Tom Cargill, Bell Labs However long the project took to get “close to done,” it will probably take that much time again to really be done. It’s funny because it’s true. Why is it true? Here’s a novel way to frame it: When you’re exploring something new, where the terminus is unknown, you never know how far along the path you are. On average, however, you’re…

    Full Post: Organize Your Life Between Super Bowl Commercials This Sunday, the Super Bowl commercials are on. There are only two reasons I would actually watch the game between the commercials……if the Packers or Redskins are playing. Since the Packers are not in the Super Bowl this year (and the Redskins may never be,) I’ll be focusing on the commercials. But what do we do between the commercials? I love to enjoy the food and a drink and sit with my family during the game, but seriously, I am not really paying attention to the game. I’ve come up with a list of things…

    Most of us live fairly normal lives, with mandatory attendance at a black tie event being rare, if it happens at all. But every so often, we find ourselves attending a funeral, a wedding, grand ball, or some other event at which we are expected – even required – to dress like landed gentry. For infrequent occasions such as this, it makes little sense to invest the hundreds of pounds that formal attire costs. Aside from the economic issue, who wants to be the object of snickering, catty comments like, “Oh, look! There’s Edna in her party dress.” Thankfully, one need not spend…

  • Dazzler could be in X-Men: Apocalypse, plus Moira MacTaggert confirmed

    John 'Spartan' Nguyen
    31 Jan 2015 | 12:20 pm
    The X-Men prequels like to jump from decade to decade. X-Men: First Class was set during the Cold War in 1962, X-Men: Days of Future Past was mainly in 1973, and X-Men: Apocalypse will take place in the early ’80s. Dazzler is a mutant, singer, and entertainer known for her ’80s roots. Since Apocalypse is going to be set in the ’80s, it would make perfect sense for her to be in it. Well, executive producer and writer Simon Kinberg teases that it’s a possibility. “That’s the era that I grew up in,” Kinberg revealed to EW. “The music, the fashion, the…

    Marvel’s new show on ABC featuring Agent Peggy Carter has been doing very well for itself. The series is only four episodes in and is already a hit among many Marvel fans. With the Ant-Man movie only a few months away, Marvel will be releasing a tie-in comic book with a guest appearance from Agent Carter, herself. The tie-in comic will feature Hank Pym as he aids Agent Carter in dangerous mission during the Cold War in East Berlin. Peggy appears to be much older in the comic, and so it looks like the comic takes place long after the events of Agent Carter. (It is the Cold War after…

    Well, two weeks after it has been released I finally have some time to sit down and get all this off my mind, smh.  Anywho… First off, here’s the teaser (watch it, even if you’ve seen it a million times, the 1,000,001th time is just as good as the first): Let’s go scene by scene here: Opening & Finn Appears: Is this Tatooinee? We don’t know; if it is cool, and if it isn’t that’s okay too, but I think it is. Obi-Wan Kenobi was able to hide there for a long time undiscovered by Emperial forces, and based on the released synopsis we know Luke…

    Last night while I was giving Jovi and Jaspyn a bath my mom gave me a call to say he had passed away.  We had talked about it a couple times over the last two weeks, he wasn’t doing well, tired more often, not eating well… but it still punches you in the gut pretty hard.  We met in California seventeen years ago.  That’s more than half my life at this point, I’ve known him longer than I’ve known my youngest sister even.  He ended up coming with us to Seattle and living with my mom for fourteen years.  And I am just so glad he did, so glad my mom let him.

  • Reducing BYOD security risks

    Rob Boyle
    27 Jan 2015 | 1:10 pm
    Original article on GHL website - Reducing BYOD security risks One of the most common concerns relating to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) schemes is with regards to security. In the past, IT departments could carefully manage the IT system and ensure that all relevant security measures were in place. The system was effectively a closed one and access could only be gained via approved personnel and approved devices. The IT equipment would only be used within the office and in most cases, for work-related tasks – as a result this dramatically reduced security risks. A BYOD scheme involves…

  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) Review

    Mark Pellegrini
    30 Jan 2015 | 10:17 am
    The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre… where to start? I think I established this in an earlier review, but growing up, my family was pretty dedicated to Beta cassettes. We had four Beta players and one VHS, so we’d rent the VHS tapes from Blockbusters and copy them onto blank Betas. My mom was used to renting horror movies for me when I was a kid, as she thought the Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th flicks were all pretty stupid and harmless. However, while she was copying The Texas Chainsaw Massacre onto Beta for me, she happened to watch some of it; namely, the dinner scene.

    See all reviews of They're Not Like Us (2)I summed up the first issue of They’re Not Like Us rather simply: It was fine. It lacked excitement, but had a decent enough upside to it. It felt slow, but had a potentially intriguing ending. The main character was good, but the rest of the cast was just sort of there. I said that you should wait until the second issue hits before you check the comic out, to get a better grasp of the situation before you commit to anything. It’s out now, so let’s see what we got.

    Security is necessary for one's own protection, both offline (to protect one's physical safety and possessions) and online (protecting identity, money and, as the our digital and real lives become more integrated, even physical possessions). Our own behaviours and security systems need to work together to be effective. It's no good having the latest burglar alarm, strong locks on your doors and a security gate if one leaves the door wide open. Similarly, it's great to lock the door each time one goes out - but if that door is secured solely by a latch, it won't be effective. As I've given…

  • Armello: Promising furry fantasy game in early access release

    Sonious
    24 Jan 2015 | 4:00 pm
    League of Geeks' flagship game shows a great deal of promise as it goes out to early access. Armello is a video game which bases itself in board game principals where four heroes, a wolf, rat, rabbit and bear, compete for their clans to secure the throne. The goal is to gain more prestige points than your opponents by the time the king dies of his illness, or to smite him yourself. The game has three methods of doing this, and takes familiar elements and mixes them in ways that work extremely well. The fact that the characters are anthropomorphic is icing on the cake of a solid game. read…

Now, write a glowing puff piece about its amazing merits.   Now I am a pretty tolerant guy and there is hardly anything that I completely lose my head about. Some of the things that annoy me are arrogance, ignorance and not taking responsibility for your actions. The ‘Ick’ I am going to talk about can is related to the latter two on the list of three.   Imagine there is a T.V.

Almost as passionately as I hate the fog… I say almost but it’s not quite there yet. I often come close to boiling point as I can easily get frustrated but that is usually during the beginning of an argument but if I hold on for that initial moment, I realise that I settle down and begin to see things more logically, become…

(This is a story about me and my struggles with ‘attention deficit disorder’.)   Once upon a time there was a young man. This man seemed normal to the eye but if you were to see into his mind, he was the very most peculiar. You see, this man had a brain that worked around the clock; tick tock, tick tock.

You’re more likely to hear out of the mouth of a ‘Super Bitch’ like Katie Hopkins than the former editor of the British Medical Journal. In his blog, the doctor claims that death by cancer is one of the…

    After faithfully watching the fourth installment of American Horror Story: Freak Show, I have one phrase for you regarding the season: it was a complete and utter train wreck.

    Last week, fellow Geekiary writer Erin said that Helix 2×2 was an “unsettling” episode filled with the thing the Helix writers do best – that being, “crazy”. I certainly agree with her, and I really didn’t think they could take things much further…but in “Scion”, they absolutely did. First was the incredibly awkward opening scene featuring new season two characters Amy and Landry plotting over a hand job. Yeah, SyFy went there. And I’m still not sure why. But all of that was set aside when in the very next scene, Hatake came…

    It’s a testament to how enjoyable this show is, that an episode that is essentially just people standing around talking about their feelings is still surprisingly entertaining. Not that I don’t enjoy a good old chat about feelings, especially when those feelings involve Steve Rogers. And to be honest I could probably watch a whole 22 episodes of Peggy Carter and Howard Stark butting heads and bantering. It’s just the thriller/action concept doesn’t generally lend itself to in depth emotional discussion, but Marvel’s Agent Carter does it so well that it works. This week on Marvel’s…

You accidentally click a bad link on the web and then you’re encouraged to download Adobe Flash. Once it’s on your computer it spreads and then locks you out. Your files are locked away using ‘bank-level’ encryption, so even with the most advanced technology, it could take decades to decrypt. Once you’re infected, keep in mind that the only way to get access to your files is to pay up. Depending on how valuable…

  • Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer Review

    Desperado
    31 Jan 2015 | 3:06 am
    So just like last year, I have decided to analyse the new Game of Thrones trailer for Season Five. There is a lot going on and I’ve broken it down to each little glimpse. I skipped a few that I didn’t find important but this is a detailed analysis based on my thoughts and opinions. Now I haven’t read the books so a lot of this will be speculation and hearsay. I don’t think there are many if any spoilers in here considering I try to stay away from them as much as possible. Most of the information in this analysis will be information available to the public based on the show and not the…
  • The Tears of Men; Franky vs Pink – One Piece 775 Review

    Desperado
    29 Jan 2015 | 7:23 am
    The feels in this chapter were incredible. I just cannot describe the emotions running inside my heart, body and soul right now. Oda-San knows how to make you fall in love with characters. A few weeks ago it was Baby-5. A few months ago, it was Corazon. Today, it is Senor Pink.   I had always found his outfit weird and considering how smart he was in the flashbacks, it didn’t make sense how someone so stylish could become such a freak. Yet he remained hard-boiled non-the-less; perhaps more so than he had ever been before. Senor Pink also has a story, a story he tries to keep locked…

      It all started with a desire to play this free-to-play online game everybody seemed to be addicted to. Now I didn’t want to get addicted but the thought of playing online as part of a team got to me and I decided to download the bloody thing. Part of me regrets this decision. For so long I resisted, knowing my life was too hectic to let League of Legends to become a part of it, but eventually the curiosity got to me. I wanted to know what made this game so special. The first champion I began to play with was SONA. She is basically a league of legends support character. She is a…

  • Tears of Youth; The Little Hero – One Piece 774 Review

    22 Jan 2015 | 11:51 am
      The latest chapter of One Piece had much left to be desired, although the chapter itself was filled with tid-bits of awesomeness. Unfortunately, we didn’t get much of the action that we so desperately want to see. Come on with the Super Franky vs Senor Pink already.   ZORO KICKING ASS? Judging from the panels on the left, it seems like Zoro is kicking Stone-Giant’s ass. Although it is difficult to tell but there is clearly a huge hole there and in the final panel it looks like Zoro is about to deliver a fatal blow from up above.
