Okay, I think I’ve decided what I’ll use this new blog for.

My other blog (brentknowles.com) will continue to be where I discuss game design and writing stuff.

I’ll use this blog to discuss my role, as a player, with Empire Avenue — the social stock market. Though I am a consultant with Empire I was first, and remain still, a player. As a player I have particular expectations for where I see Empire Avenue evolving.

These will be my views and not that of Empire Avenue.

To start with, later today, or tomorrow, I’ll discuss the newest feature on the Avenue and what opportunities I think it creates. Then I might move a few of my older Empire related posts from last year into here.
