Gah, am I ever going to get this current project out of the door when there's stuff like this to read?

Jane McGonigal saves SXSW for me Kitten Fluff

The thing about games and virtual story worlds - no matter how graphically sophisticated (or not) they are - is at least they give you feedback and points for doing things. That way we know instantly what our strengths and weaknesses are, and how we are doing. We don’t really get that in everyday life.

For that mythical day when I have some spare time...

Dan Hon must have tunnel carpal syndrome from the scale of his transcripts of talks at SXSW.

Paul Hammond's session on speedy development philosophies and cultures was a fascinating and stark reminder, and I really must book an hour to properly read Extenuating Circumstances – SXSW 2008: Jane McGonigal Keynote

Thanks for all that typing Dan!

Of course the big question I'm asking myself is, am I prepared to come up with something new for this year's? Will I be able to beat SIAM? Should I try? And have I actually learnt anything of note in the last 4 years worth passing on?
