I am thrilled to have been asked to present again at Flash on The Beach again this year. The info about my talk isn’t up yet (and fortunately that highly unattractive picture of me in the sidebar has been covered up with the text). I’ll be speaking about a deeper understanding of play based on my research over the past few years.
Play and playfulness has been a feature of quite a few designer’s talks in the past few years and has gained a lot of currency.This is all good, but much of it doesn’t really explore play in much detail and depth. An understanding of what constitutes play and how we know we are playing or are in a play space can be put to use in interaction and experience design across a much broader spectrum that the usual approaches.
Hope to see you there. For all the latest info, follow FOTB on Twitter.
