DoW Ballot for CSM XI

GO VOTE! VOTE! VOTE OR DIE MOTHERF*****!

  1. Steve Ronuken: One of the best reps of recent CSMs, he’s definitely earned his reelection and will be a major asset to the fresh faces coming in
  2. Kyle Aparthos: A consensus builder who’s willing to pick fights when need be. Love it. I also think he puts the more aspirational parts of EVE and sov at the forefront when thinking about those topics which is super important.
  3. Toxic Yaken: The PVP side of highsec needs representation, and I think Toxic is the best fit to do that this year.
  4. Commander Aze: I don’t agree with all of his views, particularly on war decs, but I don’t there’s any doubt he is passionate about the CSM, understands their responsibilities, and will but everything he has behind making the council work.
  5. Nash Kadavr: Super passionate about EVE and knows the player gathering scene. With EVE’s RL meetups becoming ever more important, it’s good to have them represented on the CSM.

——In No Particular Order——

  • Diana Olympos
  • Utari Onzo
  • Apothne

You get to pick 14 candidates and EVERY vote counts. If you vote for the folks on this list, be assured your future is in good hands 😉 But even if you don’t the most important thing is to vote, get your corp mates to vote, get your fleet to vote. Let’s do this!

Meta Information in EVE Online

Videos from fanfest are starting to hit CCP’s Youtube channel, including my brief look at how the data we interact with every day turns into the meta information we use at a deeper level. So deep, right. Find it here or embedded below.
CCP did a great job editing and the slideshow is well-shown throughout the video. Thanks for listening (and watching now too apparently) and we’ll be back Sunday night.

Declarations of Down Under Zebras

As promised, our post-FF, boundary-shattering podcast (reposted from Crossing Zebras):

“There were a lot of podcasters and personalities at Fanfest 2015 so Xander did his best to grab a few of them to sit down and talk about the event immediately after the Closing Keynote. Joining Xander was Niden and OhTakashawa from CZ, Bam Stroker and Otto Bismarck from Eve Down Under and NinjaTurtle from Declarations of War.

And there’s a very special hotdrop from CCP right before the end!”

Again, many thanks to Xander for making this happen and all these awesome other guys for hanging out.

Upcoming content

Hi friends, I made it back from Fanfest alive and can confirm it was as crazy fun as last year! The convention itself had a completely different feel to it versus last year, most notably the momentum shift in delivering what was typically Saturday’s keynote on Thursday instead. We’ll be talking about it all very soon so I’ll save it for that. Just a quick look at some content we’ll have coming up:

  • A special post-FF podcast with most of our Crossing Zebra friends; once Xander has that put up we’ll be hosting it here as well.
  • I gave a player presentation on Saturday entitled “Meta information in Eve Online” which CCP should be putting on youtube within the week; that will also be relinked here. I will also post the final slide of the presentation as that information was requested.
  • And as usual, we’ll be recording our usual episode next Sunday and will bring you a full recap of all the fun stuff that went down at FF.

Thanks for listening, we’ll see you soon.
