IL2006 Day 3: Closing Keynote: All the World’s a game… and all the men and women merely players



Elizabeth Lane Lawley

Aside from Jane Dysart: 1493 people came to IL2006 this year…

many2many – group blog on social software… check it out sometime

terra nova – blog on virtual worlds … hmm… check it out too

She thinks games are as important as she used to think blogging was important

Lane is into World of Warcraft

What is a game?

  • a form of play with goals and structure…
  • etc (two more vague definitions)
  • The consistent stuff – structure, goals, maybe prizes

So – Learning 2.0 – it’s a game – structure, goals, and prizes!

www.42entertainment.com./see.html – cool experience type things on this page…

Check out the enthusiastic/active/casual description… it’d be good to use as a different type of experience – one for customers. More than customer focused… hmm… more thinking is needed.

macarthur foundation – macfound.org – huge opportunity to go for grants on gaming/informal learning through them…

    Not a compliment, exactly, but not a slam, either.

    Just as companies used AOL ten years ago to get their feet wet with online presence, but then moved to the distributed environment of the web, I think people are going to learn basic VW literacy in SL, but then move into a more distributed, less centralized set of virtual worlds.
