If you’re a part of the gaming community in any capacity, you’ll probably recall Adam Orth and the #dealwithit Twitter debacle that ultimately resulted in his dismissal from Microsoft Studios. His insulting Twitter tirade contributed to the negative press surrounding Microsoft‘s reveal of the Xbox One.

Orth will present a discussion titled Mob Rules: The Destructive Power of Opinion and Online Community at GDC 2014. The talk will examine the destructive power of online negativity. Just an early guess, but I am willing to bet this session will be packed.

        hey, when I download Project Spark and open the game how do I actually redeem the code? Went to sign in to my Microsoft account but it kept telling me I need to sign in and wouldn’t take me where I need to redeem it.

          You still there?

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            so how exactly do I actually enter the beta code into the game? I couldn’t find where to type it in.

    Nintendo and Sony fans should take note. Microsoft is the BEST company EVAR. Kinect 2.0 revolutionizes gaming with 120 FPS and offers 4k REZ. No other console platform even comes close. Orth should have stayed at Microsoft, but instead he got ostracized for no reason.
