I teach new media journalism at Seton Hill University. I've kept the same blog since 1999. A 2007 article I wrote about finding the source code for "Colossal Cave Adventure" and visiting the real cave in Kentucky was simultaneously Slashdotted, BoingBoinged, and Metafiltered. Among my online instructional handouts and guides is the top-ranked Google result out of 800 million hits for "email tips."

I am interested in teaching with games, but wary of gamifying education. My wife and I homeschool our children (ages 11 and 15).
