CFB: What has winning a national "serious gaming" contest meant for you and your company?Well, first of all, we've gotten a whole lot of resumes from graphic artists, software engineers, developers and gamers — a lot of people who want to work for us now. It's been pretty exciting. We do want to hire a couple of people for some logistics contracts we'll be working on this summer. And we believe the gaming side of the business is going to grow even more as the government uses more virtual training to save money during the budget crisis. So we expect we'll also be doing some more hiring later this year as new work comes in.
