HAMLET ON TOUR
Next week I'll be speaking on both coasts: in Los Angeles on the 24th at the Milken Institute's Global Conference, for a panel called "The Internet's Next Generation: Web3D", to discuss "[W]hat happens when web technologies merge with digital games and virtual worlds, and... how these immersive environments can redefine personal identity, social behavior, individual learning and civic engagement," along with insightful game goddess academic Constance Steinkuehler and my altogether excellent friend Jean Linden, joined by the impressively credentialed James Bower and John Kruper.
Having done that, I'll immediately red eye it to Boston to join Pathfinder Linden, John Freeman, and Eric Gordon for April 25's "The Art of Living a Second Life", a panel associated with the city's annual Cyberarts Festival, and part of a speaker series that "addresses the recent emergence of inexpensive, worldwide, and many-to-many publishing and communication media."
Thanks to John Kruper of the Cardean Learning Group and Helen Thorington of Turbulence for the invites-- I'm lucky to be joining so many esteemed panelists, and it should be a lot of engaging fun. Hope to see some NWN readers at both!
