My Talk From Playful in October

Here’s the talk I did at Playful on 31.10.08. It’s basically about the changing nature of scores in games and how scores are starting to infect everything.

Sorry it’s taken me so long to get it up online, but I had to get the video off the guys, and then it turned out to have been shot from a strange angle where you’ve got no idea what’s going on.

And the audio is a bit muffled, but hopefully you can make out what’s going on…

I’m in Istanbul


This photo isn’t supposed to represent Istanbul. It looks like a lovely city from what I’ve seen, it’s just something I can see out of my hotel window and I really liked it.

Anyway I’m here to talk at the Digital Age conference. I’m talking about Big Ideas this afternoon, and quite looking forward to it.

I’ve been debating whether or not to share this picture for a day or two. But I’ve decided that it’d be rude not to. When I got sent it I laughed out loud for a while. Then I thought. Oh crap, what have I / they done…

Unfortunately, this means that I won’t be able to go to the Glug event on Thursday Night. I’ve never actually been to one yet, and it’s their 7th time. But I like the guys who run it, and I like their strapline: “More Notworking then Networking”.

If you fancy popping along for a drink and to meet a bunch of creative types who’ll probably be drinking too, then get all the details over here. Or on Facebook. And while you’re there check out their Xmas challenge – there’s some nice prizes to be won…

Vintage Pole Position Advert – Playful Conference

I’m sure this has been featured a few places, but it is pretty awesome. I came across it whilst trawling around for various game-related things. Reason is…

I’m really looking forward to it. Not because I’m speaking, but because there’s a whole load of great speakers lined up. Plus I’m quite excited about the Electroplankton Orchestra playing together again
