4th Annual Gamers Give Back

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

We've been running Gamers Give Back for almost four years now with relatively few changes, so it's time for a change of pace. Thanks to Jesse Schell, we're able to combine this year's event with the ETC's 2010 Building Virtual Worlds Show. Here's the official announcement: We are proud to announce that ...

Healthy Game Jam Marathon: A How-to Post-mortem

Friday, June 11th, 2010

First things first, this is not a guide about how to handle corpses. This is a guide about how to run a Health Games Challenge site based upon the lessons learned by the Pittsburgh IGDA chapter. It's called a post-mortem because that's what we call detailed case studies in our ...

Drink for the Cure: A History of Cancer

Friday, April 30th, 2010

So I'm hosting a charity party tomorrow night at the Firehouse Lounge & Embury from 7-10PM in support of Kim Reed's Race for the Cure, I hope you'll join us there. I'm not going to write about why you should support Kim's Race for the Cure or even how this event ...

2009 Reviewed: Conferences, Panels, and other Speaking Engagements

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Finally back in Pittsburgh this week since I'm scheduled to give a talk about "Charity Fundraising in Social Games" for the local game developers association this Thursday evening at the Beehive. Which reminded me that I should finally get around to summarizing all the talks, panels, and speaking engagements I've ...

Play It Forward: Gaming the Pittsburgh Gift Economy

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

One reason I like attending conferences in Pittsburgh is that you never know who you'll accidentally run into. With a relatively small and tight-knit tech/startup/gaming/social-media/etc community, you often run into the same faces time and time again. Like Nick said during his panel with Luke and Lynsie yesterday, it's less ...

Rebranding and Redesigns

Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

This weekend, at the monthly board meeting of a local Asian-American association I serve on, we decided to finalize our integration with a similar, larger national organization. Besides the standard adoption of their bylaws and other miscellaneous paperwork, we also need to fully convert our rebranding from PAAYPA (Pittsburgh Asian-American Young ...

Gamers Give Back

Monday, November 26th, 2007

It's the holiday season right now, which I like to think is more than just an excuse for rampant consumerism and gluttony. It's a season of giving, not just receiving. So in that spirit, I hope you'll join me for a fun charity event this Saturday. I've mentioned it briefly ...

Happy Birthday Pittsburgh Bloggers and Developers!

Friday, November 9th, 2007

Last night I went to two very well-attended geeky events celebrating simultaneous momentous occasions. Yesterday was Pittsburgh Bloggers' third birthday and the birth of DevHouse Pittsburgh. While our celebratory cake was not quite as geeky as the one pictured above, the room was packed and we even had some new faces ...

PodCamp Boston and other updates

Friday, October 26th, 2007

So I've been neglecting this blog lately, but since I'm currently killing time in the Pittsburgh airport on route to PodCamp Boston, I figured this would be an appropriate time to get caught up. In recent news, I've been tricked into joining another local organization's board, so I'm now the Technical ...
