I explore visual and interactive ways of explaining math and computer algorithms, especially those used in computer games. Whereas many MOOCs are exploring a classroom style of learning with videos and assignments, I’m instead exploring an on-demand style of learning single topics with text, hypertext, and interactive diagrams. I want to learn by playing with things.

I’ve been curating game development articles since 1990. All of my articles are available for free, with no signup and no ads. The main audience is independent, student, and hobbyist game developers, but I’d like to cover other math and computer science topics in the future.

I’ve been helping people make games since 1990. I wrote games earlier in life, with Solar Realms Elite being the most well known, then worked on an environmental simulation game called BlobCity, then took a break for over a decade. The recent rise of indie, mobile, tablet, social, and web games have made me interested in game development again. My current passion is using interactivity on the web for learning, especially learning game algorithms. With modern web browsers, we can use explanations that don’t follow the formats used in magazines, technical papers, and books. We can combine learning by reading, learning by watching, and learning by doing.

A pretty busy homepage with a lot of content on it but with nicely designed top navigation. The footer is similarly well-designed and leads the user to not be overwhelmed despite the great amount of content present on the site.

I would consider reducing the amount of options on the...

A very minimal landing page which looks a little too simple to inspire confidence and trust in the user.

The top links when they do work, remove the header links and do not allow the user to navigate back to the home page without refreshing. The About, Press, and Privacy links all...

Generally, a good looking site but is a little overwhelming with the sheer amount of content on it.

The landing image itself with its great number of content is a little overwhelming to the eye and this experience only increases as one scrolls down further down the page.
