Hopefully Russell will use this photo of me talking about him talking about me in his next presentation.

Leila and Loo record an episode of their podcast, Shift Run Stop, live on stage at Playful 2010. They conducted an interview with former GamesMaster host Dominik Diamond over Skype!

Playful is a one-day event all about games and play – in all their manifestations, throughout the contemporary media landscape. It’s a conference for architects, artists, designers, developers, geeks, gurus, gamers, tinkerers, thinkerers, bloggers, joggers, and philosophers. We look at what PLAY means both creatively and culturally, and put speakers on the stage who offer different perspectives on where we are currently, where we’ve been, and where we’re going. We want people walking away talking about the nature of games…what they mean to different people inside, on the periphery, outside or miles away from the industry.

 

As Will Wright said in his Long Now talk with Eno:

 

“We have this ability as humans to build these fairly elaborate models in our imaginations, and the process of play is the process of pushing against reality, building a model, refining a model by looking at the results of looking at interacting with things.“

Kev showed us his fighting pony tamagochi thing on the way home. He brought it because he knew I like ponies!

Thom chats to Leila and Roo during our appearance on the amazing Shift Run Stop podcast.

I think it's a bit of a shame the iPad feels it has to go online at all, it feels like the beginnings of a really good cocktail-table style arcade console thing.

A computer made of matchboxes and beans that learns to play noughts and crosses.
