Interview with Ellison Leão

Ellison Leão is a computer scientist from Brazil who has a great passion for Game Development. Ellison recently branched out the curated content of his Game Development listings from his GitHub page to ZEEF.

His ZEEF Game Development page has become an overnight success and has received great attention from the online Game Development community recently. Robert Thorpe contacted Ellison to ask him a few questions about his recent experience with ZEEF.

What was your initial reaction to ZEEF?

Cool, now i have a really nice place to put my favorite lists!

Your page had a great response! (12.7k views) Why is it so popular?

I think some of the page views came out of the people of ZEEF helping spread the content of their network via related online communities, since the list content is interesting to so many people. Another thing is that the page gets so easily indexed by search engines.

What features do you like about ZEEF in comparison to other curation platforms like GitHub?

User Interface mostly. The suggestion system is very cool.

Do you understand what ZEEF is aiming to achieve?

Trying to filter the world’s information with quality listings.

What improvements would you like to see on ZEEF?

I’d like to see some public API and integration with other services like GitHub (it’s difficult for me to keep the GitHub list updated). An API could resolve that problem.
