MMO Evolution

Shout out to RevolutionG


The really cool folks over at RevolutionG interviewed me not too long ago and the podcast is going live in the next couple of days (or sooner). I had a great time talking to them, although I wonder if I was a little too ranty and longwinded at times. Hey, what can I say, I am pretty passionate about this industry and I have some very strong opinions.

Anyway, they were kind enough to plug my book and mention I blog here. Thank you guys! Also note that I blog under the pseudonym “Nicodemus” over at KillTenRats.

I’ll write more later. I’m still at the beach and heading home tomorrow. Wheee. Back to the grindstone.

Feel free to comment here and say hello, particularly if you landed here after hearing about it at RevolutionG.

Guest Speaker: Indie MMO Game Development Conference

I will be attending the 2007 Indie MMO Game Development Conference in Minneapolis Minnesota this April over the 14th and the 15th as a guest speaker.

I will be giving a class on fundraising to aspiring game designers and developers that want to start their own company or studio and need to find funds to make it happen…

Fundraising: An Entrepreneur’s Perspective

The class will cover a variety of topics including how to find potential sources for funding, creatively structuring deals, choosing between debt and equity, handling investor relations, angels and venture funds, preparing business plans, common mistakes and pitfalls, when to walk away from a deal, deal points entrepreneurs should look for, and why a good attorney is an entrepreneur’s best friend.

and I will be moderating an open roundtable discussion:

In-Game Advertising: Gold Mine or Fool’s Gold

In-game advertising is getting a lot of attention as a primary or secondary source of revenue for online games. The roundtable will discuss the advantages and disadvantages to in-game advertising, as well as debate its controversial nature.

I will also be signing autographs for anyone that has bought my book, MMO Evolution.

Stop by and say hello!

MMO Evolution on Blogspot

The new blog “MMO Evolution” over at blogspot, is not me, nor is it affiliated with me or my book in any way.

I have read over most of the recent posts made there by “wearfannypacks”, and it seems that they have a good perspective and clear writing style. So, it gets my vote as something to check out. Hop on over there and take a look around.

I do most of my blogging here, or over at
