Trae Carroll aka “BudgetCuts” and “PunControl”
The lab, video games, bicycling, critical analysis and breakdown of game frameworks and interactions
I like Science. I like games as a social platform where people collectively analyze the game substance, figure out the interaction and what works. I play to tease out these bits of insight and strategy to improve my game. I also enjoy engaging others with similar topics to improve their play. The first goal is to get better and understand the game. Fun and winning will follow.

Everett Green aka “Green”
A.I. NLP Computational Linguistics Machine Learning
I’m an avid futurist who enjoys thinking about the value structures we use to drive our daily decision-making processes and how we can apply those to artificial intelligence algorithms. The nexus of human and computer intelligence is currently quite an exciting place to visit. And I also enjoy playing video games.
