3 Conseils pour la création de jeux Tout le monde connaît Sébastien Pauchon, éditeur suisse et auteur de jeux à succès. Il a participé sur le site Boardgamedesign et y a donné trois conseils pour la création de jeux. Ses conseils sont extrêmement intéressants et pertinents. Avec l’accord de Séb et de Clive, le webmaster, nous avons traduit cet article, pour ceux qui ne pratiqueraient pas la langue de George R.R. Martin 1) Soyez informés des jeux qui sortent, jouez, jouez, jouez. OK, il y un inconvénient à cela, il vous semblera difficile de prendre de la distance par rapport à ce que vous connaissez et d’innover. Plus vous pouvez apprécier un autre jeu pour son équilibre, son intelligence, son humour, son originalité, etc, et plus vous vous sentirez inspiré pour améliorer votre création. Ne tombez pas nécessairement dans la pensée de groupe qui ignore un mauvais jeu, jouez-y plutôt ! 2) Tests Ils sont cruciaux. Soyez ouvert à la critique, mais ici aussi, vous devez mettre les choses en perspective. 3) Un bon prototype

More than 30 teams are pursuing projects related to sectors including public safety, energy and transportation. Participants in the Global City Teams Challenge are working to deploy an emerging technology within a cyber physical system (CPS) by June 2015. On February 12-13, 2015, NIST and US Ignite will host a Tech Jam that will provide existing teams with an opportunity to present their project plans and identify additional project partners. The Tech Jam also provides an opportunity for those with a new project idea to identify partners and develop a new Action Cluster. Who Should Attend the Tech Jam?

Monomyth Joseph Campbell's monomyth, or the hero's journey, is a basic pattern that its proponents argue is found in many narratives from around the world. This widely distributed pattern was described by Campbell in The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949).[1] Campbell, an enthusiast of novelist James Joyce, borrowed the term monomyth from Joyce's Finnegans Wake.[2] Campbell held that numerous myths from disparate times and regions share fundamental structures and stages, which he summarized in The Hero with a Thousand Faces: A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.[3] A chart outlining the Hero's Journey. Summary[edit] In a monomyth, the hero begins in the ordinary world, and receives a call to enter an unknown world of strange powers and events. The 17 Stages of the Monomyth[edit]
