As we shuffle onward to the New Year, we look on with naïve, hopeful eyes as we see a fresh slate before us. Join the GCR team as we discuss our own 2014 gaming machinations, wishful thinkings, and other assorted musings of what the future may bring.
Since we are "Kicking," off the New Year, we also discuss the inner-workings of Kickstarter and how crowdsourcing has become not only a viable marketing and financing strategy for games of all shapes in sizes, but in some cases, a necessity to make it to the big time.
Jared Heyman's sister went from a young healthy teen to someone who had to drop out of college because of depression and a fatigue so profound she could only watch TV or play solitaire. She would also wake up several times a night with nightmares and cold sweats. Eventually she became suicidal.
Over the course of 3 years, she saw 16 different medical specialists (all seen individually) racked up $100,000 in medical bills to no avail. They couldn’t figure it out. She was what you really don’t ever want to be – a tough case. Finally, the diagnosis was made. It had a rare disease that only affects 15,000 females. She was treated and is doing fine now, but her story inspired her brother to do something to help other people like her.
Jared Heyman founded CrowdMed to crowdsource medical diagnoses. That’s right, he designed a platform to bring together people with difficult to diagnosis conditions with folks he calls Medical Detectives – people who want to help solve the puzzle.

If the CNO's #1 priority is warfighting, how do leaders focus on that priority inside a 24-hr day?
In a complicated structure of Administrative and Operational Chains of Command and the unending hunger of a bureaucracy for metrics and the reports that feed them - when does a system itself become and "Administrative Burden."
On person's administrative burden is another person's critical requirement - so how does an organization's leadership balance subordinate priorities so they do not interfere with #1?

Specifically, we will discuss the CNO's crowdsourcing initiative "RAD" (Reducing Administrative Distractions) specifically looking at removing those non-value added distractions in the Fleet keeping Sailors away from the Navy's top priorities.

Hello, my fellow creatives! Welcome to this week’s fabulously entertaining and informative OH MTG! It's show #34. Wowza!! On this week’s show, we’re going to experience our very first threesome. Mmm, hmm. That’s right, kids. We’ve brought back the deliciously devilish “Bennington Gothique” web series creator, Gregory E. Connor - and joining him will be two of his web series regulars, John Wuchte and Yumi Ishibashi.
Our “Just the Tip” top 10 list this week takes you back in time to a real house of horrors with “10 Crazy Facts From Bedlam, History’s Most Notorious Asylum”.
And this week’s “Jukebox 5” song selections are a real mixed bag of nuts, not unlike our featured guests and your looney tunes host here in the “OH MTG!” studios. And like an unsuspecting new student at the Bennington School for Girls whose lost in the woods, you’re not gonna know what hit ya or what bit ya, kids. So grab your favorite adult beverage, kick back, and enjoy the ride.
THANKS FOR TUNING INTO “OH MTG!”. We are broadcasting a lively, sparkling new show every week, kids. And that’s the truth! Tune in, turn on and live an authentic life.
Smart TV News will be a platform for journalists (including bloggers and everyone else) to showcase their reporting to a local, state, or national audience.
I am a project developer who has worked many small projects. I have written software for over 30 years. I have blogged at DailyKos for ten years and am well known within the community. While my political leanings are towards the liberal side, I will not allow Newsstream to be a partisan. I will not censor content based on ideology. There is a reply feature which will allow users to rebut and
I believe many of the current news outlets are ideology based, limited in scope, and personality driven. There is too much fluff and opinion and not enough local news. Newsstream will provide a blend of national, state, and local news items personalized to the viewers location and interests.
If Newsstream reaches it's potential journalists (including bloggers and anyone with a camera) will be able to submit videos. The videos will be streamed to viewers who subscribe to the topic or live within the area impacted by the video's content. Newsstream will stream short videos to it's viewers and will be able to provide the viewer links to longer videos or the web page of the journalist.
Journalists will be encouraged to obtain sponsors and will be allowed to plug the sponsor as part of their video. I hope this will create a method for local reporters to financially support their activities.
