The 7th annual MACE West has come and gone.  When we started it, I would have never imagined it lasting this long.  But we definitely found a great home and we have had a lot of fun with it.  While much of MACE West has remained the same, it also has evolved and changed with...

One of the more interesting and cool items at Origins 2013 that deserves special mention are from the guys at Mechjock.com and Virtual World. Set up in the main hallway in the convention center were 6 (or 7, I can't recall) pods that just looked awesome. All around it were logos, posters and ...

Now that a little time has passed since my trip to Origins, some more thoughts have been forming in my head that I thought I should write down based on some of my daily posts and my experience at Origins. In some ways this is an analysis of what I experienced at Origins and in others it is an ...
