Site Updates & launch of podcast

Hello! Hope you’re good.

I’ve added a few items:

  • A link to the audio and transcript for a casual (but invited) talk I gave at the Web Standards Group. See the ‘Thinking Outside the Web’ talk in the industry presentations section.

Walz and Matthias Bottger (Eds) book: Space Time Play: Synergies between Computer Games, Architecture and Urbansim. The book is now available to buy, and includes an amazing collection of game theorists:

And, I’m sad to say that I’ve powered down my blog. I need to concentrate on my PhD.

The first interview is up, it is with Evan Jones. Check it out!


Dynamic Logic’s Latest Cross-Media Campaigns Study

Dynamic Logic have just released their latest study:

TV and online’s contributions were more apparent during the awareness stages while magazines were stronger at building brand favorability and purchase intent.
