I like orange. Also, I'm a game developer. I run Orbus Gameworks, where we do nifty things with gameplay metrics. I have a game industry blog called Tiny Subversions where I write about networking (as in meeting people) and other general game industry topics. I am also running for IGDA Board in 2010!
