As Promised, below is the link to James's UNR TEDx talk. We would like to thank UNR and especially Bret Simmons, TED, The Abbi Agency, and all the other speakers involved for helping make this TEDx event amazing! In his talk, James provides a compelling argument for what lessons the casino gaming industry should be learning from video games and vice versa. Please tell us what you think in the comments!

I would also like to take a quick moment to plug the RGJ/Nevada Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology's 2013 awards ceremony happening tonight at The Atlantis. 3G is a two-time NCET award winner as the 2011 Technology Company of the Year and 2012 Software Company of the Year, and we also hosted an NCET Tech Wednesday event in August of 2012. The NCET is a great resource here in Nevada and Dave Archer over there is an amazing advocate for the tech business here in Northern Nevada. Thank you again for everything that you do!

by SuzanneL       August 1 2012 10:58

Two pieces of business this post: first, we are proud to be hosting the Nevada Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology’s monthly Tech Wednesday event at our office next Wednesday, August 8th. NCET is an amazing resource for the tech community in Nevada, and we’re very happy to help support them. We will have demos of some of the projects we’re working on, so if you’re curious what we’ve been up to, stop by! Admission is a bit more for non-NCET members, so take this opportunity to join!

 

Second, we have video from James’s panel at Casual Connect in case you weren’t able to make it to the conference:
