CCNBook/Main - Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Wiki

Main text is also available on Kindle (also avail for free as a mobi file you can email to your kindle) and soon (hopefully) as an Apple iBook Textbook. This is a new wiki textbook, serving as a 2nd edition to Computational Explorations in Cognitive Neuroscience CECN. For copyright reasons, this is a complete rewrite of the material, starting from scratch with absolutely no copying of text. Of course, many of the ideas are the same, but they are presented in a much more concise and accessible way this time around (see Preface to Wiki Edition for a summary of differences for those familiar with the CECN book). See Contributors for information about how to contribute, and who has already, Status for current status and future plans for the text, and Pedagogy for pedagogical info for teachers (and students), including Syllabi from courses using this book. 1.

I heard about New Media Rights through a story on Joystiq, and reached out to Intellectual Property Attorney Shaun Spalding about writing a brief primer on some best practices for indie studios.

As more and more developers self-publish, indies are asked to be experts on not just game development, but things like marketing and law, and those are tricky subjects for anyone to simply jump into. If you found any of Spaulding’s advice useful or interesting, consider making a donation to allow New Media Rights to provide free legal guidance to smaller developers. This stuff can save your company, or your game. Enjoy! Indie game development is supposed to be fun, right? Learning about the law and business isn’t fun. My non-profit, New Media Rights, helps game developers whose projects go off-the-rails because of legal issues. And if you don’t like to read, I’ve also included links to some of the videos we’ve made called LAGD that explain these concepts in six minute chunks.
