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 ...

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 ...

Pittsburgh IGDA May News Update

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

So this email news update for our local International Game Developers Association chapter might be syndicated on our blog. I'm just testing to see if we can basically cut and paste our email without having to reformat anything. Looks like yes. Also, I've gotten lazy yet again about updating my ...

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 ...

DevHouse Talk and ShowClix Launch Party Tonight

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

This sort of last-minute announcement is probably better suited for Twitter, but I still have 20 more days until my annual twitter post on the 30th. So hopefully this short blog post will be sufficient to get the masses all atwitter. At 7:30 PM, I'll be giving a short talk at ...

Dancetown Talks at ITPittsburgh Connector and Dorkbot

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

Tonight, I'll be at ITPittsburgh's first Connector event at the Altar Bar at 6 PM, talking about Dancetown. I've enjoyed speaking there before as panelist for Jessica Lee's Entrepreneurial Thursdays. It's a nice venue in a fun location, so please stop by (and RSVP if you can). Next week, I'll be ...

The Gaming Generational Gap

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

Via Slashdot, I came across this great survey of the first gaming experiences of prominent journalists and heads of gaming companies (unless you've worked in the industry you're unlikely to recognize any of the names, but trust me, they're influential people). One common thread that I noticed amongst many of the ...

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 ...

Childhood Life Lessons Learned From Playing Oregon Trail

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Starting tonight at 6 PM, I'll have two days to create a game from scratch for the XO laptop at the Pittsburgh Game Jam. Since these laptops are primarily being distributed to children in developing countries around the world, I'm going to try to make something that's both fun and ...
