Getting Into Game Creation without Being in Game Creation
When we talk about game design and creating games alot of us think we have to come from that disipline or be only that to create wonderful games. Well think again. You can come from any industry, any discipline, anything and create fantastic games that people will love. Come join us as we talk about how we came to creating games, what its like coming into it without these constraits of right and wrong, and how to just dive right in without any training. Have a great time with some great speakers who just think creating a natural part of everyday life for every industry.

Why You Should Create A Webcomic
Zach Wienersmith, creator of SMBC, and Alex Woolfson, the writer and publisher of the full-color yaoi webcomics Artifice and The Young Protectors, talk about why releasing your work as a webcomic is the best way to build an audience, connect with your readers and ultimately earn some income for your hard work. Megan Praz does webcomics for publications such as Autostraddle and SKYD Magazine. They will discuss the reasons why releasing your comic a page a week on the web is superior to other forms of independent publishing and will cover how to set up your Web site, promote your work with online ads, build a fan base, set up a successful donation system and ultimately bring your book to print.
