Welcome back, friend. It’s been a while. This is the new blog, but there is much work to do still.

Why did my blog never get updated and eventually disappear? Well, it’s a long story, but suffice it to say that I was too caught up in work matters. While leaving NCsoft, many different opportunities arose, and the team and I were stuck in a sort of limbo. Things eventually fell through at NCsoft, and I went on to help found a new startup, Portalarium, where I’m at now as the Lead Technical Artist.

It’s an exciting venture, entering into the social games space. There’s so much movement in this area of the field right now; so much potential. There are also quite a few big players that will make it hard for anyone to grab any market share. Portalarium being essentially a spiritual successor to Origin, I have hopes that we can make it.

So much of what I work in now is web-centric, so JavaScript and PHP are utterly essential. It’s interesting diving more into these two languages, but the deeper I get into JavaScript the more horrified I am at its implementation of object-oriented concepts. *shudders*

Back to the grinding stone.
