This blog was first created in Blogspot when I was writing my Master’s Thesis: “Gameplay politics in Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Games”. I wanted to share all the brilliant things that I was learning about games, other virtual environments and the social media explosions that I kept bumping into in my research. So I started writing and I just loved it! Through blogging I’ve met so many interesting people! I’ve also managed to document my web surfing and thoughts about it better. And I love the way that writing can make me see my arguments a tad clearer.
But alas! After the Masters – too much time goes to a “serious” life – which means working for companies that pay for my research and thoughts. Separating the two has been difficult, so I haven’t been writing as much the last few years. But every now and then I get an urge to start writing again …. so stay tuned. ;)
This blog is dedicated to all my idealism, naivité and passions of the virtual worlds – games – future – technology politics – and just generally things that turn my mind on!
