+Allen Varney, Rafael Chandler, and I are interviewed about the Bundle of Holding of Gamasutra.com. Check it out!
Along with +Rafael Chandler and +Matt Forbeck, I'm interviewed in Rafael's Gamasutra blog post today. In the context of plugging the +Bundle of Holding ebook collection, we talk about writing for computer and video games and how it differs from prose writing. "Immersion in gameplay is different from immersion in a story. They're different brain-states. After you finish an intense game level and the next cutscene plays, maybe you lean back to relax or maybe you lean forward to watch. Either way, you feel different, watching the story, from the way you felt playing it. Gameplay and prose will always be, at best, uneasy allies." (Gamasutra):

Had my first Chinese lunch in Shaghai. Gave up trying to figure out what I'm eating. Still good stuff. 

The Google Takeout tool worked its magic. I'm leaving this Google Plus account behind. Go look for me at matt@forbeck.com instead. Thanks!

Finally noticed the Google Takeout tool came out. I'll be merging this Plus account with my matt@forbeck.com account in about a week. Whew.

I'm extending 12 for 12 to go for 13 in 13 instead. Yes, I'm crazy, but I'm enjoying it. :)
