Red vs. Blue Coming to a Close?
Just got out of a great presentation from the guys from Red vs. Blue (a.k.a Rooster Teeth Productions). They mostly spoke off the cuff about what they actually do for a living and why Red vs. Blue became so popular. They dropped some really great stats as well. They have over 1 million downloads a week for new episodes which is almost a point in TV terms. They have over 400,000 registered users who browse and post on their sites on a weekly basis. The average age of those people is 14-22. (Advertising Gold!) They even joked about people who were pirating their DVD's at the last Comic Convention they went to. They weren't specific about financial numbers but they make enough to support 5 guys working 40-50 hours a week. Pretty sweet. They also spoke about the difference between the games they work with. M$ came to them after they started and said "We Like It, just don't fuck with our Intellectual Property", EA approached them and said "Use our stuff for free dudes" while the Panics folks (F.E.A.R) paid them to promote their game.
The Big revelation? They have an exit Strategy and there is life after Red vs. Blue and The SIMS 2. In fact they talk about ending the series at least once a week. And that the rumor around is that Season 5 may be there last.....stay tuned for more....
Well I made it to Austin. As you may of read part of SXSW is this years all new ScreenBurn Beta Festival that covers the coolest in Video Games technology and innovations. The convention center looks sweet and I can't wait to check out the first presentations later today. Stay tuned for more coverage.

Okay, I must admit when I first heard about the Docupen, I thought it was a combination scanner/pen, and I couldn’t possibly conceive what I would ever do with it. But they offered to send me one to try out, so I figured I’d give it a shot. As a pen, it performed quite poorly [...]
