A New Challenge

Ten years ago, I decided I was going to become one of the best SharePoint developers in the world. Two years later, Microsoft was holding meetings to discuss me and I could walk into pretty much any conference lecture and be immediately recognized. I still hold the record, as far as I know, for most books and journals written, with over 25 books mostly still available from Amazon or other places.

Even today, I get ten thousand unique visits monthly on my blog even though I haven’t written a word about SharePoint in years. I still get maybe half a dozen pitches for projects each week, even though I haven’t been in the SharePoint community since 2013. And I couldn’t spell SharePoint when I started.

Now, I’m ready to take on a new challenge. I’m thinking game development but I’m not sure.

My question to you is this: Would you like to follow my journey? If so, what form should it take? A blog? Posts on FB? YouTube? How should we interact? Do you want an email newsletter? Weekly interactive talks? A forum?

What should the challenge be? Last time I could reach a hundred thousand SharePoint professionals in minutes. Should I aim for an audience of a million? If not games, then what industry? AI and machine learning? Biohacking? If games, what’s the goal? World’s leading Unity3D authority? Game marketing guru?

And before you suggest it, I’ve done the cryptocurrency thing. It got boring pretty quickly.

I’m looking for ideas and to hear what people want. I’m not in it for money, I just want a new challenge.
