Thank you, excellent analysis. Do you think that recent technological advances may also have had an impact. i.e most companies are now increasing the number of freelance workers in their payrolls. Also, I must say am not really certain, I think a number of people are kind of combining the two. i.e they work full time while at the same time running some other part-time gigs. Just a thought.

Will Gaming Companies Break Into The Next Frontier?
2 years ago

Hey Bruce, thank you for your comment. When I say social I am looking at it from a global perspective, the ability to bring players from different locations into one platform enabling them to interact with each other.

I know that there has been talk of technology like Oculus VR being one of the innovations that could enhance the social status of platform games, but we are not there yet. And as fa as Zynga, I mentioned it because it is the one company that really made social gaming popular. A couple of years it was among the best, but it may now have slipped back because of obvious reasons (revenue slowdown etc).

And yes, platform games are the ones driving revenues for gaming companies. Also I did not say that there is more money in social gaming than traditional gaming, I only said that if companies can find a way to fully monetize social gaming without pissing off players, then that is the next big shift in the gaming industry. That's my view.

Why Strategy Is Key In Forex Trading
2 years ago

Hi Alexis, thank you for your comment. It is recommended that if your are familiar with a particular currency, then it is good to focus on it, rather than trying different currencies that you may not have a clear understanding on what moves them.

As for day trading, NO, it is not a must that you should be a day trader to be involved in Forex, there are a lot of people who do it part time, only a couple of hours per day, others a few days per week etc.
