What is your specialty in the interactive world?
I run an internet gaming clan, which is also developing into a game-based news website. We have a lot of video content as well as original news and blog posts. The website is http://www.EuroGamers.eu.
Historically I've been involved in creating and running websites for many years, as well as being an avid gamer for over a quarter decade.
Where can we see some of your work online?
I'm currently running and providing content for http://www.EuroGamers.eu.
Lessons learnt on user interface design
Keep it clean, simple and logical. Try to give users several methods of accessing the same content.
Do you work by yourself, or in a team? how is that team?
By myself at the moment.
What was your first computer, and which is your current?
Oh, wow, this is going back a bit. It was a Texas ti99/4a, which was eventually followed by a Vic 20, C64, Amiga and then on to PC's.
At the moment my gaming rig is an i7 960 OC'd to 3.96 gig with 12gig of ram.
Online virality: isn't it the same as traditional word-of-mouth?
It's close, but above all it's faster. The old maxim of it's not what you know but who you know is the same online as off. I've had blog posts that have increased site visitors by literally an order of magnitude because one influential person retweeted the link.
In the current interactive world, what is the most relevant trend?
Speed and distillation of information. Today's consumers do not want to read walls of text with detailed information (spend some time on your average forum and you'll see what I mean). The rise of twitter has reinforced this trend. Fast, distilled, available information is what people are looking for.
