The Huffington Post reported on the story about the stolen prototype of Dinosaur Island that ended up on Ebay. “Now that the game has been on ebay twice and we have some idea of where it is in the world and who is at least selling it on ebay I just kind of want their friends and gaming group to know that they are the kind of person who would steal something at a gaming convention.”
Jamey Stegmaier is known for his frequent blog posts, especially his “Kickstarter Lessons.” He recently looked back at a few that he’s changed his mind about. “The subtle lesson for me in doing this is reminding myself that it’s okay to change my mind without sacrificing my principles. If I’m not truly open to changing my mind, it means that I’m also probably not listening to people who have different opinions, which severely limits my potential for growth and improvement.”
