I'm working on. It is designed to show forthcoming and historical events but
also needs to show competitions.

Take a look at the page as it

DEADLINE EXTENDED - May 8 - Workshop "On The Process of Game Design"


Apologies for cross-posting.

We've received several really great responses (on time, even!) to our
CFP, but we've also had enough requests for extensions that we felt it

Tim Wong from frog design articulates what it meansto be an designer


Are you referring to this bit: "How good of a designer we are [..] is directly related to how well we convey our thought process [..] that you can trace and one that is based on personal intellect"?

I agree with the first bit (the idea that you have to be able to supply arguments with your design, explaining why it is a good design) but not with what I think is the second bit (the idea that only intellectuals can come up with a concept?).

Just Because You Can Innovate Doesn't Mean You Should

I'm tuning in a bit late here, so forgive me if someone also has made my

A couple of things about innovation. First, unlike invention, innovation
is planned and never happens by accident. This is an absolutely critical
distinction. Second, it always solves a problem; if it doesn't solve a
problem, it will invariably create one.

So, a new idea is not necessarily innovative. But as Jason points out,
it may have the potential for innovation if handled correctly.

folders merely contain other folders.

"got used to" - research or studies


At my work we're gearing up to rebuilding one of our major applications to support new platforms, mobile, etc... The current solution has more than a decade of work in it, and with it, more than a decade of solutions that are suboptimal, out of time, or simply bad.

I have a really big fear that we won't be successful at fixing these and delivering needed changes, because sales/management stops us because "the user got used to that solution, dont do this".
