Notes on the BBC Audio Drama Festival

November 30th, 2006 · 3 Comments

On Tuesday, after about five hours of sleep following the Second Life ARG panel, I found myself at the BBC Audio Drama Festival in London. As usual, I was due to give a talk about ARGs. I did think it was a little strange that I was invited to speak, because while we do have [...]

…in Second Life

November 27th, 2006 · No Comments

It’s late notice, I know, but I’m going to be in Second Life tonight at midnight, talking about Perplex City, ARGs and (unsurprisingly) Second Life. It’s part of the Second Life Future Salon, and hosted by the Electric Sheep Company. You can find out more here. Also, you don’t need to be in SL to [...]

Internet World

May 10th, 2006 · 3 Comments

I was at the Internet World conference in Earl’s Court this afternoon, speaking about Alternate Reality Games. It’s a bit of a grandiose name for a conference that is essentially aimed at SMEs, but they’d managed to round up a pretty interesting bunch of speakers, including people from the likes of Yahoo, MSN, Blockbuster, Virgin, [...]

(Quick post while I write the huge queue of posts I’ve got backlogged)
I recently got hold of a new Intel iMac. I’d been wanting a new computer for a while now, and it seemed like getting a top of the line computer (as opposed to more middle-range ones) which would presumably stay fast for longer, [...]

Through the Rabbithole: ARG Lecture

November 21st, 2005 · No Comments

The proper title of this talk was ‘Through the Rabbithole: The history and potential of Alternate Reality Games’. It was presented at the 2005 Montreal International Games Summit and is an introduction to the alternate reality gaming genre.
Below is an essay based on notes that I prepared for the talk. It is not a transcript [...]

Astonishingly, for the second time in a single month, I’ve posted to the ‘massive’ section, with a rather wordy report on the Montreal International Games Summit. This is the conference where I spoke about ARGs, and discovered that there’s more to Montreal than the fact that they speak French there. It was a fun and [...]

Montreal International Games Summit

November 14th, 2005 · No Comments

NB: I’ll be putting up my presentation notes in the next few days.
As a game developer at the conference told me, “When people hear that I’m from Montreal, they think of two things. One, that we speak French, and two, that we almost separated.” They certainly don’t think that Montreal is a place where computer [...]

On Wednesday I’m heading off to The Future Laboratory’s Autumn 2005 ‘Trend Briefing’; unsurprisingly, alternate reality gaming is in, and while Mind Candy isn’t giving a presentation, we are going to be featured in one, so we have a few free tickets.
Observant readers will note that their flyer doesn’t actually mention ARGs – rather, it [...]

Notes from a Small Symposium, and others

June 19th, 2005 · 1 Comment

The past Thursday saw me make a flying visit to Cambridge for a quarter-day symposium on wireless gaming. Returning to Cambridge is always a strange experience for me; I spent three years of my life holed up in a few square miles of town, so it all feels very familiar, despite the fact that half [...]
