a random developers blog


My development efforts have hit a standstill at the moment as I have been in the process of moving house. The internet at my new place should be connected tomorrow, so I will hopefully be able to make some progress in the very near future.

In other news, I have been playing a fair amount of Ingress. If you haven't heard about it yet, its basically a Real Life MMO created by Google. The concept behind it is quite cleaver, In that the purpose of the game is to control "Portal's" but to create a "Portal" you need to take a photo of a piece of artwork or a landmark and upload it to Google with the Geo-Tag. They appear to be using a game to get real world data to make their Maps application better.

It has given me a few ideas on how to utilize the concept in different ways.

Assuming everything goes well tomorrow, I will Blog when my servers are in their new home, and hopefully make some progress with my dev network.
