My first iOS/Android Game - Hyperborea

So I finally finished my first iOS/Android game. It's a duck and slide action game that definitely has inspiration from the infamous flappy bird. Specifically the difficulty ramp and streamlined gameplay. Here are some screenshots. You can find the game on the Google Play store for free here I am still awaiting approval for the Apple App store.

Streaming JSON Parser

DCStreamingJSONParser off of github So I was talking to a mobile dev dude, who seemed to know his stuff. He told me about how he coded up a JSON parser that parsed as the byte stream was getting downloaded to lower latency. Basically if you start parsing the second you start getting bytes you will only have a smaller subset to parse after the download is complete. Anyhow I decided to take a rough cut at implementing something like this and I ended up doing it in Objective C++ because NSString append is way too slow in a tight loop. I ended up using c arrays and cstrings for most of the heavy lifting. For really large JSON data the streaming parser actually seems faster than the vanilla NSJSONSerialization. In parse only time the iOS implementation is still faster however, since I get a head start, the total time between downloading and the completed parse is smaller for the streaming case. There still are some bugs with escape characters as I haven't covered all the wacky cases yet.

Joseph Schumpeter - Dynamic Disequilibrium

So what does a healthy economy look like?
According to Keynes it's in static equilibrium...... (nice steady growth stabilized with government intervention, with no pesky variance in economic output)
According to Schumpeter it's in dynamic disequilibrium.... (creatively destroying itself through innovation)
Check this sweet paper out about Schumpeter and the Dynamics of Capitalism

What is interesting is that... he's all about the power of the innovator.... and the idea that once capitalism has  made it's full run.... and a country is run by a few large corporations... that it would eventually turn in on itself and turn socialist by evolutionary design... an interesting thought given the times...
