Episode 59 – On Bitcoin and kids gaming

On this episode Guillermo and I don't do much development talk, but instead we chat about Bitcoin and how Guillermo's mining machine is doing.

Also, what is the appropriate time to get your son or daughter into some of the more "adult" games like Call of Duty? Guillermo and I have differing thoughts on at what age a kid should try certain games, and what the consequences might be.

Of course the chief topic on people's minds when it comes to games is "will the violence transmute itself to real-life". We have many examples of kids acting out violence in our society, but did "video games make them do it"? Anita Sarkeesian thinks so, thunderf00t doesn't.

This is why I always make it a point to document and share my knowledge with my client's employees"
