YOW! 2012: Mike Lee - New Lemurs, Chemistry, Transdimensional Portal, Object-Oriented Audio
Before he was known as the Mayor of Appsterdam, legendary product engineer and world's toughest programmer Mike Lee (@bmf) worked on apps for Alaska Airlines, Delicious Monster, Tapulous, United Lemur, Apple, and Nextive, producing such hits as Delicious Library, Tap Tap Revenge, Obama '08, and Apple's Mobile Store.
After he established Amsterdam as the world capital of app development, Mike moved on to start the New Lemurs, an Appsterdam startup building educational games, with the coolest URL of all time: http://le.mu.rs. (Followed closely by the URL for his blog, http://mur.mu.rs)
Here, we learn what Mike's been up to since we last did one of these C9 conversations (one year ago). Needless to say, Mike has been rather busy. His new company, New Lemurs, has just released their first game, Lemurs Chemistry: Water, which is a modern, interactive take on chemistry - and chemical interaction - geared towards children of all ages. As you'd expect, there's at least one great story behind this game.
Pop Quiz: What's a Transdimensional Portal? No, not the science fiction kind a la Dr. Who, but rather something that exists today, in the center of Amsterdam, inside one of the city's oldest buildings, ready for you to experience... Tune in. It's Mike Lee time.
Really glad to have Mike on Channel 9 again. Thanks, Mike!
