‘New Games for a Resilient Society’ at TEDxUtrecht 2012

A few weeks ago I pre­sent­ed at TEDx­Utrecht. I talked about crises, unknown-unknowns and the notion of anti-fragility—how we might be bet­ter able to deal with the unpre­dictable if we were to hone our impro­vi­sa­tion skills. To this end, I sug­gest a spe­cif­ic class of games as train­ing grounds, for which I bor­row the term […]
