Wikiversity, Career in Gaming

I just discovered that there's a Wikiversity! Although apparently, OpenDNS is blocking some of the links (such as the budding School of Game Design).

Anyway, for those in the area for the GAMA Trade Show, Matt Forbeck will be giving two seminars:

Monday, 11 am–Noon:
Getting Your Game Published
Come learn how to submit your games to publishers and get them published. Discover the obstacles you may face in getting your game on shelves, and discuss strategies for overcoming them. Explore the option of self-publishing your game instead.

Monday, 2–3 p.m.:
Career Freelancing
Getting your first game, book, or article published is only the first step. To keep from being a flash in the pan, you need to educate yourself about how to turn your hobby into a business. Learn how to set up your business, act professionally, pay taxes, and get that next gig—and the next and the next and the next.

Hi Charles - Is OpenDNS still blocking the Wikiversity pages for you? Mind sharing the exact URLs so I can look into it?

Thanks,

Hi! This was the url that was being blocked (it redirected me to a page in OpenDNS) but it seems to be working fine now: http://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/School:Game_Design
