More > making him a person of interest for Clip Sharinggen who is seeking the final member of his mercenary group. The world in which they live is governed by video game mechanics that affect their lives. These mechanics are quantified attributes of a person or nonhuman animal such as life (HP), strength, defense, and speed.

More > the army that failed to kill it, making him a person of interest for mercenary leader Clip Sharinggen. In The Kill Stealer: An Adventure Loosely Based on the Quantified Self Movement, Dominguez thematizes the quantification systems that exist in video games and brings them to life in fiction.

The Compound Mortgage is a rev-ed up, (auto) lease-to-own system layered over a bail-out that pays down about 30% of the sub-prime market by splitting the cost between 8 industry players (feds,... More > state, county, banks, mortgage holder, servicer, buyer, and seller). Each party is left pitching in a small and affordable 2% to 3% of a sub-prime mortgage. Because the sub-prime crisis has been a leveraged problem, its implosion has been greater then its own immediate value. Re-instating sub-prime back at its original value with this 20% bail out, we can provide a multiplied return in both Wall Street revenues and fed taxes. This will free up the credit crunch in return as well jump start the real estate market once again.< Less
