I posted about myself on Reddit. And maybe you’re here because of that. So nonetheless, I hope I don’t disappoint (too much, as writers are bound to do).
But I wanted to talk a little bit about my passion. Because, it seems, it’s one of the few things I do have (besides an English Lit degree, but really, come on).
I enjoy video games, kind of a whole lot.
And I enjoy talking about them, about the technology that makes them possible, and about what that means for us.
So I wrote posted a blurb about wanting to work for Oculus. Well, it’s true. I do. Badly. But why?
Last night, I went to a concert. It was a band called Haim. (rhymes with Time).
They look like this.
And they kicked ass. Even better than The National and Tame Impala concert I saw in Dallas this weekend, and you know why?
Because they are the next big thing.
It’s really as simple as that. Not only were they extremely talented at what they did. But they cared so much about their craft. And the craziest part about it to me? The youngest of the three sisters was younger than me. AND SHE REALLY KICKED ASS!
It was so impressive and inspiring! Definitely a kick in the pants.
Honestly though, Oculus is Haim. Haim is Oculus. Finkel is Einhorn.
So not only are these Oculus guys (Palmer, Nate, Iribe, Carmack, Antonov, Forsyth, and so on) absolute geniuses in their fields, but they have the determination, the vision, and passion to get VR back on track!
Okay half-time’s over team, now you can run back on the field.
Thanks for taking the time to read and hear a little bit about one guy’s excitement about another’s passion.
I’ll be writing more about the Oculus Rift to come. So come back by if you have any interest.
Thanks for kicking me in the pants, Reddit (and Haim).
