my background until 1995 was in writing narrative / drawing comic books, academia & teaching (+ stints of rewarding experiences working with "youth-at-risk"). my studies revolved around semiotics. around 1994 i was encouraged by Burne Hogarth (co-founder of the New York School of Visual Arts who at the time was talking with some partners about possibly buying the publishing house Marvel Comics) to consider the role of editor-in-chief of marvel.
i left those careers or opportunities in '95 to "walk the earth" type of thing.
in addition to the above, my lifelong passions have revolved around: (first and foremost) studying the mystery of existence; theory & practice for methods/criteria/priorities about one's life; inventing board games; and the internet.
these are mostly rough drafts. no web traffic for now (not yet ready, thus not promoted or significantly shared at this stage). all projects in planning or development. personal eccentricities style may be replaced with professional/commercial style/content if joined by proper partners/investors/sponsors for one or more of the projects.
a site that converges all projects via a deck of cards for study, crossover fiction (superheroes, mass media, real people, etc.), game/s.
THE DIGITAL TOP CHOICE SYSTEM
a digital (online & app) system based on nextgen game theory for maximum optimization of choices/voting, social media, web searches, etc.
MARAGO CARDS & GAMES
(like it says)
also, my brother paolo gaudiano, though not formally trained in programming per se, is tinkering with creating an intro edition for the PLAY ONLINE VERSION of the game. the intro play-online edition is not finished yet, but the plan is: (1) to additionally create the basic and advanced versions; (2) enabling users (from regular to users to sponsors) to load own images; (3) additional spinoffs.
THE INTERNET MARKET
a hub on the web. sites connected will/do link to TheInternetMarket.com. TheInternetMarket.com will/does connect to sites.
i currently own the approximately 200 domains listed (some 10 or 20 are not yet listed.)
due to the nature of language-specific domains in the hub, the plan is to also localize it for different languages/cultures. e.g. the italian version.
(the italian version currently does not have an actual roster of ".it" domains. project partner: massimo suffre')
a modern life-coach / self-help / wellness approach for identification and implementations of personal goals, and effective and efficient techniques for goal achievement.
currently tarot is not only a niche market but often viewed with suspicion at best. nextgen tarot focuses on the self-help / wellness aspect of aNextgenShaman.com, through the study and creation of images and affirmations, by me and by the site's (future) users.
please note that though the site says "not affiliated with Lo Scarabeo," i have emails from Lo Scarabeo, one of the largest publishers world-wide of specialty cards, (1) authorizing and approving my use of their images for that and related websites of mine, (2) indicating reference to future financial agreements if the sites should one day be promoted and grow commercially viable online traffic.
SITES FOR "WEBSURFIN' COCKTAILZ"
SEE COMMENTS BEFORE CLICKING THE LINK, THANK YOU
websurfing, served by me or other site owners.
future plan is for the people to decide the links for the websurfing.
the 1st link below is currently an extremely personal-style exercise, and at this time also includes some crass language.
for interactive social media versions see the digital top choice system project.
please note that since i may use this "projects page" for formal or official matters, i hesitate as to whether or not to include the 1st link below. however, (1) i'm about cards on the table (no pun intended), (2) i believe in the concept per se, (3) i serve a dam' good websurfin cocktail -- but do be aware everyone got diff taste. thank you.

the non-crass version:
