*(the above is not actually my talk. It was the “Philosophy in Games” discussion, presided by Darius Kazemi (middle))
Last Saturday, August 18th, I went to Boston to participate in my first unconference, or rather, “invite-only, improvised collection of conversations”. Run over here and read the Wikipedia page. It sums up the concept nicely.
I proposed and gave a talk about “Art Games from a Fine Arts Perspective”. The terrible title aside, more people showed interest than I thought possible and we had a great conversation. My inability to recall exactly what we talked about is probably a cause for concern, but thankfully my friend, James, took on the burden of “Conference Minutes-Keeper” and kept a detailed record of everything said. You can read is summary of my panel and the others he attended here.
