One-day Seminar at the Academy of Converging Media

Berlin, Germany

This was the second year that I had a chance to work with the Academy of Converging Media. I presented two lectures, "Problems with Justice in Online Communities," and "Fundamental Principles of Game Design," which is the introduction to my game design workshop. My audience was a small group of new media students from all over Europe. It's always fun to give a design workshop to people who aren’t that familiar with video games, because you can watch them absorbing new ideas at a tremendous rate. They came up with some great stuff. The game ideas they were given were "run the CIA" and "experience being a film director."/span>
