My friend Simon Brooks has kickstarted a variation on his iPhone game Gadzookery™, it’s called Zook Words™. Yep, we are putting it on Kickstarter. If we raise $11.4k, we’ll be going to the Mojave desert to get this done – HacktusJack. The largest feature we are adding is – defeat the cheatpacks.
If you’ve got friends or family that play On-line Scrabble™ or Words with Friends™ and they’re tired of CHEATERS, then let them know we are on their side. Then ask them if they’d like to bid “Anarchy in the Desert” or “Jack Rotten”.
Simon just got written up on the London Guardian/Observer. Look about halfway down for a picture of him, his Lexus and his dogs:
Silicon Valley: an army of geeks and ‘coders’ shaping our future
Yes, we’ll be hacking in the desert. So, kick us so other hackers can be encouraged to do this, and maybe we can do a burning man for code – HacktusJack!
If you are wondering about me, I’m on the top right of that first picture. – Jesse
