The Jamaica Gleaner now has Cloud Based Games on its website

Panem et circenses  (Bread and Circus Games) Juvenal, Satires, X It appears that The Jamaica Gleaner has finally decided to get its game head on as it’s slowly fading out of the Media Game.

The Birth of Reddit by it’s founders Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian

Reddit is a super popular social media and social news website allowing users to submit and vote on content in different categories or "subreddits" ranging from popular video games, to world news, help requests and blog-like information sharing. I am a longtime Reddit user and use the site almost daily to stay on top of upcoming video games and technology topics and quirky hobbies.

It is an excellent video that is worth watching especially for potential entrepeneurs seeking inspiration. Video Embedded Below: Via - Youtube
