15 Minutes of Game – Episode 1

15 Minutes of Game LogoIt went a little something like this –

Last week, the inernet said that @Weezul and I should do a podcast. We said they were crazy. But who are we to question the internet, right? So here it is. The long-awaited, completely unscripted, very first episode of our new probably-weekly podcast, 15 Minutes of Game:

Give it a listen, and by all means, let us know what you think! We can be reached via email (15minutesofgame [at] gmail [dot] com) or on twitter (@15MinutesOfGame). Shoot us any questions, comments, etc, and I promise we’ll do everything we can to get them in. After all, it’s your show.

A Very Big Thanks!

Hey everyone –

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everybody who came out to the PAX panel on Sunday. It was great to see so many people in the room! I was really kind of afraid that about 10 people would show up, and it would all be people with whom I regularly talk about community… at length. But you all showed up, and it was awesome! So thanks for coming!

There were a ton of questions that we weren’t able to get to. Through the magic of the internet, though, we can keep the panel going! I just wanted to extend the invite to any of you that had more questions. Either leave them in the comments, or hit up any of us on Twitter and we’d be happy to keep chatting! You should also feel free to leave any general feedback you had about the panel. I think I’d like to do it again, and evolve it to be more useful based on your feedback.

Thanks again everyone!

My PAX Schedule

Hey folks! So there are a ton of community people I want to meet up with at PAX. I’m not sure what everyone’s schedule looks like, but I figured I’d post mine. If you’re looking for me, here’s where you can find me and when:

The green items are the ones that I’m directly involved in, and the purple ones are things I’ll be attending for my own gratification. The one caveat is the Friday session of the CM Challenge. That may get moved to be only the Saturday session. Either way, you should drop by the room both days! See you all at the show, and remember you can always find me on Twitter (@SixOkay) if you want to meet up!

Get Scrappy

As a community site competing for attention against major gaming press sites, you’ve got a lot less resources to work with. Instead of lamenting your miserable lot in life, you should be concentrating on being scrappy. What’s that mean? It means worry less about pomp and circumstance, and more about getting the job done effeciently and creatively.

So I Have This Website…

So it’s been a while since I posted much around here, but if you’ve been enjoying the little bits of advice I’ve been posting here on the blog, you’re going to want to stop by a little panel I’ll be hosting at PAX Prime this year. Details after the jump….
