Guude, also known by his personal name Jason, is an American web developer and Let's Play commentator who is the creator and de facto head of the MindCrack community. He is also the principal organizer of MindCrack events. Guude is a member of Team Nancy Drew, OOG, OOGE, Guano and Team Alpha Male.
Guude is the creator of the MindCrack server. In October 2010, Guude created the server to invite his friends onto it. Since then, he has invited more people onto it and hosted three contests in which the winners were invited onto the server. After 1.8 Beta was released, Guude decided to restart the server to incorporate the changes from Beta 1.8.
In discussion about his motivations to begin publishing to YouTube, Guude has shared that he somewhat identified with John Goodman's character of 'Creighton Bernette' in the HBO original drama Treme, which went on to inspire him to produce his videos. His then current work as a self-employed programmer had become "overwhelming" and that "[he] needed something to occupy his mind and time that wasn't always work". In reflecting on his experience since then, he shared that, "I'm glad I did, it's been a lot of fun and I've met a lot of people that I'll probably be friends with for the rest of my life." It is through his YouTube content and the world of Mindcrack that he now makes a living, for which he is "very happy" and says it's been "a crazy ride".
Guude is known for his childhood stories and his unique laugh. In Season 2 of his MindCrack series he went caving a lot relative to other MindCrack members. Eating spider eyes has become a running gag with him wherein many fans constantly remind him he can eat them, much to his apparent frustration. Guude is of Polish and German descent - German from his mother's side, while Polish from his father's side. Guude has a life view of "I'd rather work until death for myself, rather than work an hour for somebody else."
Guude accepts fanmail through his PO box, and shares what he receives through episodes of "Mail Time with Guude".

Guude and BdoubleO100 often play together in various co-operative games or custom Minecraft maps, a partnership they named as OOG. Since July 2011, they have published six seasons of OOG content, including games such as Portal 2 and 'Complete the Monument' challenges created by the Minecraft level designer Vechs. The OOG pair later teamed up with Etho to form OOGE, playing more adventure maps.

Guude owns another Minecraft handle known as easycgi. He explained that "[he] doesn't really use this character for anything... this is basically [his] cameraman." The account was unused for some time but was later used to record time lapses of the rebuilding of the arena roof and the vacation prank against PauseUnpause.
On the Season 4 map, easycgi was used to record a timelapse of the Beginning of the World which was shown during episode 44 of the Mindcrack Podcast and then later Slaying the Wither shown in episode 45.
