StarCraft II announced by Blizzard


OMG! Yesterday, at the Blizzard Invitational in Seoul, South Korea, Blizzard announced that they’re working on StarCraft II. If that doesn’t send shivers of unearthly delight through your spine, then you really need to go and read a bit more about the original Starcraft. In fact, why don’t you go out and buy it and spend the next few weeks losing yourself in the tightly balanced gameplay, the superb characters and one of the best control interfaces for real time strategy games ever (hint, use the keyboard shortcuts – they help). I can almost guarantee that the type of excitement the original generated in Korea will sweep the rest of the world with this next iteration. It’s definitely swept my apartment already!

BarCamp / MobileCampNYC

MobileCamp BannerBarCamp / MobileCampNYC should be a fun event this weekend organized by Alexis Rondeau of Semapedia fame. The official blurb sounds promising:

MobileCampNYC hopes to support the many voices helping to unlock the potential of a truly digital life. Topics may include – but are not limited to – mobile gaming, entrepreneurship, social mobility and presence, near field communication, physical hyperlinking, mobile storytelling, the importance of open standards, protocols, and platforms, linux based devices, and mobility on other continents.

Socialight will be out in full force – I think we’ll have the entire team there (except possibly Joel who will be touching down from Hawaii that afternoon). See you there!
