Taking place this year from June 13-15 is the E3 three-day gaming world marathon in Los Angeles. It’s where the massive giants of the gaming industry will announce all the projects they’ve been working on behind closed door. The gaming industry has now surpassed the film industry in Hollywood as a most money-making industry.
Every technology company worth their weight in salt will want to book their spot in the multiple halls and arenas to lure consumers in and have a look, test and potentially buy their wares. Some of the biggest names in the industry will take their rightful and usual spots in the marathon timetable, this of course means, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Capcom, Namco Bandai and Epic Games will all be in attendance. However, there’s so much to watch out for, but here’s a rundown of the most anticipated events on the calendar.

As a kid, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was one of my favorite cartoons. Raphael was my favorite turtle (always the prankster), but my favorite character was April O'Neill, the reporter for Channel 6 News.
From taking my dad's camcorder into the front yard to do "live" news reports to my 6th grade communication arts class where we produced our own television shows, for as long as I can remember my goal in life was to work in news.
On October 25th some of the hottest startups gathered as a testimony to why Silicon Beach is one of the innovative startup ecosystems on the globe.
The conference boasted an impressive roster of women in tech including "The Valley Girl" Jesse Draper and Upfront Venture's Kerry Bennett.
It's a great start to see more inclusion, and we hope next year will feature even more diversity in both the panelists and keynotes.
Check out highlights below.
If you are a brand or a blogger and are looking to develop your brand and business, there are so many options these days. The fact that you already have an online presence is great. But there is certainly more that you can do to build up your audience. It can take some hard work and dedication, but it might be time to branch out into some different areas.
One area that is growing and growing in popularity is vlogging. Not only is it a great way to directly connect with your audience or customers, you can also earn money.
Vlogging can increase your followers and readership as well. With the likes of Facebook Live now too, video is where social media and marketing is at. So if you aren’t already doing it, why not? Here are a few ideas to get you started, if you’re not sure where to start.
