I’m doing sooo much stuff in April, but it’s cool and I’m excited even if I’m a little tired just thinking about it. That means streams will be sporadic and not on the usual Tues/Thurs/Saturday schedule.
Here’s what I’m up to starting next Friday:

I’m doing three things!
1) Gaming as POC: Where the Industry Has Failed Us, Where It Hasn’t and What to Hope For
2) Microtalks: Out of Sheer Spite
3) Facilitating a round-table on POC in the industry
