Linkz: Things I found interesting

1) Meet the creators of ARM… [or connecting the dots looking back]

“The development board plugged the chip into had a fault: there was no current being sent down the power supply lines at all. The processor was actually running on leakage from the logic circuits. So the low-power big thing that the ARM is most valued for today, the reason that it’s on all your mobile phones, was a complete accident.”

2) C++11: Why start using it

9 reasons you should start using C++11 today. I am sold for sure!

3) Getting Your Game Reviewed: Do These Things, Not Those Things… [yeah right]

“You’ve busted your butt trying to make the game you need to see made. I’m snowed under a pile of applications with too much to do and too little time to do it in. How do you get me, the Judge/Media/Publisher, to review your game for more than 5 minutes??”

4) Edmund McMillen on “manipulative” games

“There is a whole shit load of wrong out there these days, from abusive and manipulative money making tactics, to flat out stealing,”

5) Embracing Dynamism
