imageThis Katamari game is a javascript implementation (interpretation?) of the Japanese video game Katamari Damacy which roughly translates to “clump spirit”.

The point of the game, if there is a point, is to roll a sticky ball around and the more objects you pick up , the bigger the ball becomes and the bigger the objects it can pick up. This version will load in your browser and you hold the control key and roll the ball around the screen picking up words and images off of the screen. I suppose the goal is to get the ball big enough that it goes super-nova.

To get a better idea of what this is all about, you can watch the following video which is a commercial designed for the launch of this game:

I'm a technologist at heart, assisting companies best utilize the Internet to market themselves and sell their products and services online. This includes organizations as large as Google and as small as one or two individuals.
At Over The Top and Exhibit A Communications, I've programmed solutions for Google as well as at least one other company that was later acquired by Google.

I've been CTO of an Internet SaaS company and spent my time pretty evenly between guiding the future technical strategy of the company, architecting software solutions for my dev teams, designing and running a data center to service our clients world-wide as well as being a technical evangalist/sales engineer to our media clients large and small.

I've also been Chief Photographer of the Daily Sun/Post newspaper back when it was a 5-day a week daily newspaper.

I also spent a great many years as a beach lifeguardfor the City of San Clemente as well as Jr. Lifeguard instructor and then as it's program coordinator.
