First of all, if you’re reading this, may 2012 bring peace, happiness and good fortune for you and your loved ones.
I have a number of talks both short and long lined up for the first few months of this year. Let me run them down for you:
- I’ll present a talk titled ‘The Game Has Changed’ – about the role of play in society and its meaning for creative disciplines – at Eurosonic Noorderslag.
- At Interaction12 I’ll do a short case report together with Irene van Peer on Pig Chase.
- I’ll do another case report, this one on Koppelkiek, at Social Cities of Tomorrow.
- And finally, I’m honored to be speaking at LIFT12 as part of the session on ‘The New Face of Gaming’ alongside Hide & Seek‘s Tom Armitage.
Somewhere in between all this, myself and a remarkable group of individuals I am lucky enough to collaborate with on a regular basis will head to Berlin to participate in the Global Game Jam.
Not a bad start of the year, right?
