An upcoming thing: I have been invited to participate in the University of Virginia Library's speaker series on digital scholarship. Nifty, eh? I will be giving a talk at UVA (Charlottesville) on April 22. I'm not sure of the exact location; I understand it's the "Digital Therapy" grad student luncheon series.
Game Genre and Game Interaction -- noon, April 22
This is not a huge sweeping tapestry of ludological theory; it's just my notes on what the heck we mean when we say "game genre". Show up if you want to hang out. There will be food, as befits a luncheon. Casual food, as befits grad students. If I know grad students, cookies are a good bet.
EDIT-ADD: It happened. Yay! See here for a link to the text.

Cool... I went to U.Va., an spent many an hour in the Alderman library stacks.

Hey, Andrew, don't forget to post your notes after your talk, for those of us who won't have the chance to go to Virginia. :)

I will certainly be posting it (as an essay) after I get back.
I suppose this wrecks my chances of going on a speaking tour and giving the same talk over and over. :)
