Blood and irony

I was speaking to a publisher this week when I learned the funniest news I’ve heard in a long time. It seems a certain NFL star will soon be publishing a children’s book, one dedicated to the worthwhile topic of teaching children how to share.

As for his identity, let’s just say that there is an amount of irony involved in the concept.

On a tangentially related note, I had an interesting conversation with John Romero yesterday evening. His forthcoming MMOG sounds as if it will be characteristically innovative; he has a sharp mind and always brings a creatively synergistic approach to game design. I harbor great respect for those who aren’t afraid to take risks, whether they manage to pull it off every time or not.

In any event, it’s always fun to speak with guys from the CGDC old school.
