A blog, a post (and few other stories)

Some big stuff happened like Rot Gut getting Greenlit and some other things and wrote a big draft on all this but I rather talk about this rather than brag on.

There are several sources of wisdom that are not “single-use”, meaning that you can read and re-read them after some time and they will fruit deeper and more valuable each time (Replaybility value?). I’m sure, or at least hope, each of us has at least one in each category that is important to one self and I like to share one of mine with you.

The source of wisdom that I’m about to share is nothing but Dead Mage studio’s lead Amir H. Fassihi‘s personal blog, cleverly called “thought++“.

I find myself getting back to this blog for several years now and after reading new blog posts, I get back to the old ones and re-read them and even though I know some of them by heart, I find a lot of wisdom hardened into them and it’s always been a mesmerizing experience.

I strongly suggest you do the same, especially if you are into game development or similar fields but there are enough content for everyone and any discipline, IMHO.

If you “do not have time” to do that ( *sighs* ), I suggest you to at least read this particular blog post, “The Rare Breed“. There are 20 mandatory and 3 optional attributes listed by the man of the hour that is essential to any candidate for the project they were head hunting at the time but it’s a good measure on where you are in your life, no matter whether you are into programming or not.

I’ve printed the list and pasted on my wall in my room and read it everyday to my shame, just to realize how far I am from the person I should be, and clearly am not.
