My son rightly pointed out I should link to this post on Kotaku, which rolls up a number of the top stories on IndustryGamers for the week. It's a good overview on the important stories in the game business for the week.
I'm a game designer, marketer, and writer. Best known as co-founder of Hero Games and co-designer of Champions, I've also designed other paper and electronic games, written and edited books, manuals, and articles, and marketed many products, from entertainment software to medical devices; I was Director of Marketing for TSR after its purchase by Wizards of the Coast. I live between the redwoods and the beach, not far from where my great-great grandfather jumped ship to enter the Gold Rush.
