Recommendations of the week #5

  • A long interview with Cameron Moll on thegreatdiscontent.com.
  • Valve’s co-founder and managing director Gabe Newell talked about the future of games and he said some very interesting things. Even though I don’t agree with everything Valve is doing a very good job and I’m excited about the future.

    ” I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space. I think we’ll lose some of the top-tier PC/OEMs, who will exit the market. “

    “The big problem that is holding back Linux is games. People don’t realize how critical games are in driving consumer purchasing behavior.”

    “We think touch is short-term. The mouse and keyboard were stable for 25 years, but I think touch will be stable for 10 years. Post-touch will be stable for a really long time, longer than 25 years.”

  • Peter Molyneux, creator of games like Theme Park, Dungeon Keeper and Black & White, started a new project on Kickstarter to collect money for a remake of his game Populous. Sounds interesting.
  • Get 5 inspiring design links every day: Sidebar.io is a nice newsletter project by Sacha Greif.
  • Mark Boulton about the challenge of Responsive Advertising in times of responsive webdesign fixed, standardised sizes.
  • Just do something.
