Lecture at Liverpool John Moores University

School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences, LJMU, Liverpool, UK

I was originally invited to give a single lecture to the students of Dr. Abdennour El-Rhalibi, but he decided to turn the event into a one-day symposium with several other speakers as well. It was very well-attended, a single large lecture theater packed with students and faculty. I gave "Fundamental Principles of Game Design," and Chris Bateman, who is one of my comrades-in-arms at International Hobo, treated us to an excellent lecture on audience demographics. ihobo is doing considerable research on demographics using the Myers-Briggs personality assessment.

I had never been to Liverpool before, and I wish I had had a better chance to look around, but I had to leave immediately afterwards for an event in Sweden.
