  • Like a Boss: Four Talents for Middle Managers | Thomas Grové's Blog
    the feelings of others If you attack too straight forward the other person will become rigid and they will not hear your words More on this in Research below Research Don t make decisions out of hubris or ignorance When you don t know the answer to a question you have three options Admit that you don t know Make up an answer Research until you do know Ask your staff for their opinions ask your peers and scour the internet Combine this knowledge with your wisdom and come back with some solutions Another aspect of research is an empirical approach to management leadership You will come across many situations that you ve not had to deal with before Conduct your own experiments and learn from your own success and failure These can be experiments with new team structures management methodologies business models etc You can also experiment with your communication As you are talking with someone be aware of their body language If they start to look defensive confused bored or uncomfortable find a way to lighten the mood and then try to communicate the same thing from a different angle Each person responds differently so what worked with one person might not work with another Keep up these experiments and build up your wisdom On Fear Zemsky Roshi used to tell me the primary concern of managers is to protect their position in the hierarchy If you are a manager please don t do this Don t be afraid of someone usurping your position if your decision making process is governed by protecting yourself instead of making the best product or protecting your team then you will be making sub par decisions If someone does get promoted above you or replaces you then it was probably time to

  • Dream: 01-25-2002 | Thomas Grové's Blog
    work Clearly this would not do anything to get my bell back and I began to suspect that Paradyme had brought my bell to the laundry instead of cleaning my bell At any rate the others were loosing interest in the whole affair and decided to retire to their rooms In a last ditched effort to revive my bell Paradyme and I began to fold the corners of our new rug which was changing from Persian to a plush sleeping bag like material towards the center a la origami This seamed as though it may just work An as seen on tv enthusiast and a small audience who had to this point been so well behaved that their existence in the corner of my flat had been completely unknown to us agreed The enthusiast or spokes lady I was not too sure took control of our efforts and like a practiced professional began to fold and roll around in our plush wonder showing off its versatility in its many transformations I wondered if perhaps this might have been the bag for the bell but you can not be to sure which is real when immersed in a horde of screaming enthusiastic members of a studio audience At any rate I returned without my bell but with some amazingly versatile sleeping bag as its stead to round up my hommies from their comfort of slumber We all convened as we had before in order to practice yoga or screen a recently created piece of programming or video art It was 4 in the morning vision was blurry and most agreed that this would be something better accomplished at a more reasonable hour Alas Note I m not sure if I meant zazen or folding up my bell This entry was posted

  • Toshio Iwai @ Tenori-On SF Launch Event | Thomas Grové's Blog
    video from an SNES project that never got released too ahead of its time and his various installation work Yuki and I had the chance to talk to him after his presentation apparently he coded the demo for Electro Plankton himself in C because he had been using it over the years for his installation work and he felt that the concept would be misinterpreted if only presented in a document Neat His presentation was totally inspiring filling me with so many ideas I only wish that the beautiful magnesium robot hand polished 256 LED sporting sequencer was being released for less than 1 200 This entry was posted in Events Bookmark the permalink A Stroke of Enlightenment Studio Interrupt Rebirth Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Website Search for Categories Acting 1 Articles 6 Asides 7 Business 3 Design 10 Dreams 1 Education 2 Events 5 Game 8 Game Dev 30 Life 11 Mac 1 Miscellaneous 6 Motion Picture 1 Music 7 Philosophy 29 Poetry 19 Politics 2 Reviews 5 Shugyo 7 Tek 8 Tools 4 Travel 9 Tutorial 3 Unity 8 Video 5 Recent Comments

  • Unite 2007 Event Coverage | Thomas Grové's Blog
    than running an event and way more stress than simply attending an event Other than some formatting errors I think that the following two posts turned out pretty well thanks to Brandon Boyer for editing and to Brandon Sheffield for supporting my involvement Day 1 http www gamasutra com php bin news index php story 15815 Days 2 3 Event Wrap Up http www gamasutra com php bin news index php story 15851 Other impressions not conveyed in the two reports above the Unity user community is super friendly this was really clear The founders of Unity Technologies are fashionable and exude a lot of confidence and enthusiasm What I like about them is that anything is possible they are not an arbitrarily closed black box marred by bureaucracy rather they are open to feedback and are very flexible about policy preferring to form good relations and do what it takes to get thing done Another admirable quirk is that they profess to borrowing good ideas when they see them implementing them in Unity only better They seem to be sticklers for doing things well or not at all I look forward to future developments in their product if they can stick to their ideals Unity will continue to grow feature rich without sacrificing usability This entry was posted in Events Game Dev Unity Bookmark the permalink Panzer Tactics Interview What Games Do Game Developers Look Up To Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Website Search for Categories Acting 1 Articles 6 Asides 7 Business 3 Design 10 Dreams 1 Education 2 Events 5 Game 8 Game Dev 30 Life 11 Mac 1 Miscellaneous 6 Motion Picture 1 Music 7 Philosophy 29 Poetry 19 Politics 2 Reviews

  • Lost Winds | Thomas Grové's Blog
    also wish that things like moving into position to talk to NPCs climbing over a ledge and eating a fruit were a bit quicker though I concede this might risk some of the hero s cute charm Baddies were also a sore point for me their frequency made me tired if I tried to dispose of them all so I eventually did my best to avoid them A final negative note I couldn t figure out how to beat the boss and resorted to looking at a walk through It could be my fault for not exploring this particular enemy besting mechanic earlier in the game if it indeed existed but I m leaning towards it not being intuitive enough The best part of this game was the iterative and innovative control and interaction mechanics The player uses a Wii cursor to draw wind As the game progresses they are able to manipulate the wind to a greater degree due to two synergistic occurrences their dexterity and timing improve and the variety of motions and effects available to them increases Much of this is not explicitly called out in instructions but instead left to satisfying trial and error discovery This entry was posted in Game Reviews Bookmark the permalink Studio Interrupt Rebirth The End and Beginning of an Era 2 Responses to Lost Winds Adri Forster says June 4 2008 at 10 16 pm Hi Tom Congratulations with Studio Interrupt I wish you and Yuki everything of the best with the new company and I am sure it will be a great success Please do not be too busy to visit South Africa We dont want to see you people here when you are old and grey Love you Adri Zee says June 4 2008 at 11 38 pm Hallo
