GamingHow do you make hard science space combat fun? We worked on the X-Wing series, Blood Wake, Saints Row, MechWarrior 2, Far Cry, and Crysis. We're here to talk about Starfighter Inc. Ask us anything! • r/IAmA http://www.topiama.com/r/5914/how-do-you-make-hard-science-space-combat-fun-we Hi Reddit! My name is Roger and in May of 2015, inspired by a trip to a grocery store in China, I decided to start an online business to sell international snacks! The moment of epiphany occurred when I purchased a Choco Pie (it's a Korea chocolate coated marshmallow snack), a snack that loved as a kid, and I remembered thinking “It's a real shame most people from outside of Asia will never have a chance to try this.”

At this point in time I’d recently quit my job to pursue my dreams of starting a business, so when I got the idea I dove right in. I went to the local ethnic markets around me and bought all the snacks I could find in order to determine if I actually enjoyed eating snacks from other countries. To my relief I did! And with that, it was off to the races. Over a period of three months, from the living room of my apartment (and with about $5000 in savings), I built a website, found a warehouse, and laid the groundwork for the launch of the company. At the end of July 2015 the website was live and the company officially in business!

The business has since grown exponentially and it’s been an exhilarating experience throughout. During the first six months I felt like I was in a constant fight for survival - to build the company, launch it, and grow fast enough before I ran out of money. To maximize the amount of cash that could put in the business, I put all my personal expenses on my credit card, racking up thousands in debt. I also took on personal and business loans to keep the company afloat as it was growing.

Throughout this entire process, I made a ton of mistakes and learned a lot of lessons, and I’d love to answer any questions you might have about my experiences, business, snacks, or anything! AMA 😃

JournalistI'm Dan Diamond, a POLITICO reporter tracking the health care fight. AMA away. http://www.topiama.com/r/5910/im-dan-diamond-a-politico-reporter-tracking-the Hey redditors! I'm Dan Diamond, the author of POLITICO's daily health care column and host of our weekly health policy and politics podcast. And I'm at the Capitol today, covering the health care debate.

Things are moving quickly on Republicans' plan to change the health system, and many readers have told me they're nervous about what it means for them. I've also interviewed congressmen, had extensive conversations with current and former White House officials, and sat down with experts and patients around the country.

I'm happy to take questions on anything — but I'm especially ready to talk the state of play for the GOP health bill, myths vs. facts on the ACA, and bigger issues for the U.S. health care system.

Update: I've been AMAing with one eye and working with the other, but given the breaking news, I need both at this point! Thanks so much for making this so interesting. And the r/politics folks invited me to do an AMA next Friday 3/31, and I'm looking forward to coming back.

I’ve had an amazing and crazy career in gaming! Sneakers on the Apple 2 was my first game, then I went to work for Activision making Atari VCS games, moved on to Hasbro/Isix to make interactive movie games, shifted to Midway Games for 20 years leading hits like Smash TV, NBA JAM, WWF Wrestlemania, NFL Blitz, NBA Ballers, then joined EA as Sr Creative Dir for EA Sports, and finally as Sr Creative Director at Zynga brought fun and the “On Fire” mode to Bubble Safari. Today I’m still applying the old coin-op lessons to our mobile Wizard of Oz: Magic Match game - learning more and working just as hard every single day to bring fun and smiles to game players. Boomshakalaka! Best. Job. Ever.
