Introductions All Around

November 13, 2008

A new blog!  How unusual!  How exciting!

Okay, what’s this all about?

In this blog I’ll be writing about artificial intelligence, game design, virtual worlds, massively multiplayer online games, social games, and a variety of usually related subjects.  I welcome topical, respectful discussion.

My background: I run Online Alchemy, a small company in Austin, Texas, specializing in online social games, particularly those with a virtual world component.  We have been working for six years on advanced social AI for games and simulations (I’ll talk about that in another post), including working for several years with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). We have also created a unique social networking technology and have a variety of games in development.

Read on for more details of my past (well, not that many).
