Ryan's Interview with StartUpSmart
What advice would you give to other young entrepreneurs? The best advice I ever got when first starting out was to take every meeting because you never know what might happen. If I had never taken the lunch with Kory Jones, Mention Mobile may have never started. StartUpSmart just posted a great article about Ryan and his goals and aspirations as president, founder and chief executive of...

Zombie Bash: Character Development
Josh Engel, one of the two artists who worked on Zombie Bash, recently put together a look at how the Scrambler developed over the course of a month or so. For so long the zombies existed in isolation, tinkered with (and then animated as well, there’s a forthcoming compilation video of them all), and then improved upon. It’s nice to have the perspective like this, to look back and...
