Hey news media! Stop putting crackpots on your shows!

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/07/07/crackpottery_bbc_journalists_told_to_stop_interviewing_science_deniers.html

In a move that makes my evidence-based sciencey heart sing, the BBC is told to stop putting anti-science cranks on their programs. If only US media would let that sink in as well.
In very welcome news, BBC journalists have been told to stop inviting crackpots on news shows in the name of balance. Oh, I do so love this. It’s precisely the right thing to do, sorely needed and sorely overdue. In this specific case, back in 2012 the BBC was criticized...

Where's My Week Gone?
Seriously. I have no idea. I had hoped to make some progress on Zombology, ahead of tomorrow's Newcastle Playtest session, instead I made none - I didn't even get to play it during the week. It's been a long time since I had a week without a game of Zombolo...

FOMO Factor: Kickstarter Marketing vs. Print-on-Demand Marketing
I've participated or run in several Kickstarter campaigns back in the old days when making five digits was newsworthy. My KS marketing experience may be a bit dated, but it still presents a striking contrast to marketing a catalog of print-on-demand product...

This isn't a science fiction movie — it's the view in the International Space Station, photographed by an Expedition 40 crew member, showing how it looks inside the space station while the crew is asleep. The dots near the hatch point to a Soyuz spacecraft docked to the station in case the crew was to encounter an emergency. This view is looking into the Destiny Laboratory from Node 1 (Unity) with Node 2 (Harmony) in the background. Destiny is the primary research laboratory for U.S. payloads, supporting a wide range of experiments and studies.

Hiya all,

I'm looking for playtesters for my 20 minute drafting game themed around the science of the zombie apocalypse. It's for 3-8 players and is moderately aggressive! You can download it from the linked blog post.
Off the presses that is. Zombology, my 20 minute card game about the science of the zombie apocalypse for 3-8 players is now available for download again. I've decided to make the blind playtest of Zombology freely available ...

Ding! Ding! Half-time. Change Ends.
We're halfway through 2014, so I figure now would be a good time to review my progress against my goals for the year . So here goes: Games Design Let's start with the bad news. My games design goals were to make four new versions of Codename: Vacuum, make s...

Back On The Case
I spent last week in Baltimore for work. It was a hectic week, working Saturday, Sunday and then Monday through Wednesday. I had hoped to make it to a local games venue and get some gaming in like I did when attending the same show in Minneapolis last year....

Not Gaming in Baltimore
I'm in America at the moment for work, like I was last summer . Last year I arranged to go to the Fantasy Flight Games Event Centre a couple of times and get some gaming in, and I did it without getting axe-murdered, which was an achievement. I had two grea...
