Bye bye 2015

Review 2015 from my point of view

2015-review

In a couple of hours it is 2016. It is already 2016 in many parts of the world
like Sydney. Like anyone I want to reflect on 2015.

First the website was alive and dead at the same time. I publish nothing
this year. I did a lot of updates and maintenance. Not the best thing.

So far 2015 sounds like a bad year. The crazy thing is 2015 was a great year
because I learn so much. I learn so much about me and most importantly the people around me.

I want to expose what I learn about me and the people around me and what’s my plan for 2016.

One thing I learn about me is the fact I dream a lot this year but did not turn
those dreams into reality. They were very basic dreams. Unfortunately I was
unable to turn those dreams into reality.

In 2016 I want more actions. I want to spice up my life. We do have one life to live.
I better use it and enjoy it. To make sure I reach that goal, I’ll lunch a new website
to track almost everything I do. I think it is the best to track any progress.

The main reason of the website is to get back to intense software development.
I let that side of me go a little bit. Yes I still have a job in software development
but I want to test new tools. Be curious again.

My main goal is to be curious again.

All this lead me to something valuable about people around us. Most people are
self centric. They love you or act like they love until you can help them reach
whatever status they are looking for. It is not a bad thing to be surround by winners only.

I understand the ideas of winners only. It was deeper than that. They fake love to get something out of you. That’s sad. at least I can spell BS a miles away. Of course, I had many opportunities to make them feel bad or put them in a bad situation.
I wasn’t build like that. I’m not a shady person. Some people might think I’m naïve but I’m not.

I believe in karma. I do think if you spread love than love is going back to you.

My main goal in 2016 is to spread love with my programming skills and so much more.

It is going to be a wild ride in 2016.

Happy new year .. I wish you the best for 2016 for you and your family

NSA your personal data not safe

I watched Obama the other day and the conclusion is clear. NSA is going to spy more and all your personal data is public for them. Yes, any e-mails phone conversations and text message are public now.

It was amazing and almost unreal. I watched Obama and I was like wait a second: are you telling me I should just trust the government and give the NSA a blank check with my data.

Apparently yes. I should trust them that no one is ever going to abuse that crazy power.

Don’t be naïve your data is public.

The government is going to make sure they can get access to your data at anytime.

The best example is the lavabit story

Watch this video from the YoungTurk about NSA and your personal data


Basically the government did not like the idea of a secure e-mail service. The service was so secure that the government was not able to spy on it easily. More important it was a service that Snowden (the whistleblower) was using.

The owner had two choices: give the data or no close the service. He decided to close it.

This is a quick message to make sure you are aware of the situation. My best advice is making sure you are comfortable about anything you post on the internet.
The government and NSA are watching. Big Brother is here.

 

Great but I’m not American therefore I’m safe right… even worst. If you are not American then the US government can do whatever they want with your data because you have no protection at all.

This is a crazy world.

 

 

Welcome back to blackysky

It’s been a long time since my last update on blackysky.

First I’m still alive… I know you are happy to know that.

 

I still have this huge dream to make the web smarter simpler faster and more secure in real time.

I truly think we can do better than this. The web should help us make decisions. The web should not be the place to fall into another scam or lose money.

 

That’s my new philosophy behind blackysky.

 

They say the sky is the limit but before we reach those limits we need a solid foundation. The web is our foundation.

 

We are going to live in an internet world. The main question is how the web can help us make money, have fun, meet new people and become smarter faster in real time.

 

I try to answer all those questions right here at blackysky.

 

I am going to separate the website in 2 parts.

The first part at blackysky.com is for announcements opinions and technical stuff.

The second part on blackysky.com/blog is for my guides tips and hacks.

 

Of course I plan to make the website smarter faster simpler and more secure in real time.

I want to make sure you get your accurate answer as fast as possible.

It is a goal. It is a hard problem to solve. I’m ready and I’m sure with your help and inputs I will find the best solutions.

 

Like always you can contact me to ask me anything. I cannot wait to hear more from you.

Everyone is talking about Facebook IPO.

I won’t make a fortune with this strategy but it is a fun thing to do.

 

Unless you have the best connection you are just like me without a facebook stock.

 

Right now the best way to buy a Facebook stock as a normal human being is to go on a stock gift certificate.

Why you should not buy Jump pack DVD and the mobile game system by Trey Smith

You should not buy the Jump pack DVD and the mobile game System by Trey Smith because it is not as great as he picture it.

You should not buy any courses without knowing some facts.

First it was fun to watch that he was giving away a DVD about his mobile game experience (by free I mean you must pay shipping and handling).

It was an innocent move at first. I was waiting for something else like a course. Today the e-mail was out.

This innocent DVD giveaway was another marketing tactics to sell you a dream. That dream was to become the next Mobile game development studio superstar.

It is a nice dream but at $500 it is not a cheap decision.

So let’s check and dive in the mobile game world.

It’s hard to find success

In one e-mail Trey smith use the OMGPOP’s Huge DrawSomething sale to Zynga as an example.

The price tag was around $210 millions. Before you go crazy over those numbers as big as lottery money, you should know OMGPOP’s story.

OMGPOP made 30 games since 2007 before they had their huge blockbuster DrawSomething.

Yes I said 30 titles since 2007 and it is 2012 now. Those 30 games fail big times.

OMGPOP was almost bankrupt but thank god for them they made DrawSomething at the right moment after many hurdles.

You can check this excellent article as my reference for every numbers and affirmation I use this far.

One success is not enough

The other cool fact to know is success does not guarantee another success.

You may or may not know the cool Fruit Ninja game; the company behind that game fails to have another success with another game.

They were able to gain success with a sequel just like Rovio and their angry bird stuff.

You can read the forbes article about my last argument here.

Those successes are anything but unique.

My only advice is to not jump in this industry without passion with games and game development. It is a though industry, I witness it every day here Montreal. I see studio open and close every month.

You should be able and ready to fail 30 times like OMGPOP.

Trey smith tries to sell you a dream to fund his game development. I know it and they know it.

I don’t say his course is BS or anything like that but you should know everything before you jump in this crazy industry.

I hope I help you make the right decision.

Have a nice day
