I don’t normally do this but given the number of blog readers who are regulars at South by South West, I figured I’d send out the word that I am here in Austin and am giving several talks on Monday. From 11:30-12:30, I am having a conversation with James Paul Gee and Warren Spector on “What Can We Learn from Games” and from 5-6, I will be talking about “Engagement 1.0: Understanding the History of Fan interactivity” with Abigail De Koznik (UC-Berkeley) and Ivan Askwith (Big Space Ship). From 1-1:30, I will also be doing a book signing. If you are around for the event, look me up and introduce yourselves.
So far, I am having a blast at SXSW, watching danah boyd talk about feminism and social networks and enjoying a panel on politics, technology, and popular culture which included the unlikely combination of Lawrence Lessig and Obama Girl.
