The first real ‘next generation’ game


A lot of attention is going out to the new Xbox 360 in the gaming community. It’s a great piece of hardware, but the lineup of games is not that impressive. Real ‘must buy’ games that help sell a console aren’t released yet. The first one coming up is Oblivion, a role playing game that can really call itself ‘next generation’. A term frequently used for excellent graphics and sound. But this game has game mechanics to match it. Read all about it at IGN or at Gamespot.

What makes the game really special is this (and I quote from the official website):

Oblivion features a groundbreaking new AI system, called Radiant AI, which gives non-player characters (NPCs) the ability to make their own choices based on the world around them. They'll decide where to eat or who to talk to and what they'll say. They'll sleep, go to church, and even steal items, all based on their individual characteristics. Full facial animations and lip-synching, combined with full speech for all dialog, allows NPCs to come to life like never before.

And don’t worry If you don’t have an Xbox 360, it’s coming out on the PC as well. Here are the specs

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
