VIDEO: Saving the real world through game design

Here's a video of the entire 20 minute quickfire talk/interview I gave at the 2008 New Yorker Conference: Stories from the Near Future.

The subject I chose was The Future of Reality - a game designers' perspective. Or, as the New Yorker dubbed it "saving the real world through game design."

I really like how this talk went, and it's a great introduction to the major themes I'll be exploring in THE BOOK I'm going to be writing! (More to come)...

By the way -- I'll be in New York City, London, and Vienna in the next month running Lost Sport games and other alternate reality fun, among other things. If you're in any of those cities, please come out to play: NYC, Saturday June 7 in Central Park @ 4:30 PM or London, Sunday June 29th around the Southbank Center @ 3:00 PM, or Vienna, Saturda July 5 at a TBD location! (email me or comment if you're in Vienna and want to play)

Quickfire? Quickfire?!

I've watched it through twice now and am still noticing stuff I didn't pick out first time around! (thankyou~)

29th is in the diary...

Would love to join you in Vienna, but even from Munich it's still a long ride - and I'll be stuck in the hot final days of our summer semester with my whole teaching workload (which is great fun, but limits my labyrinthability considerably) ...
