Olli Sotamaa and T.L. Taylor here at the front row of Gamers in Society — Play in Culture seminar which takes place in Tampere today and tomorrow. Really interesting papers and discussions — one could almost hear the ideas clicking together as the dialog continued. — Edit: another photo, from T.Wright, taken in Café Europe in the post-seminar get-together:

I just wanted to say that it was an interesting seminar. I have pondered many times that what really makes people tick, what motivates them. What makes a good play? And how I, as a software developer, can gently coerce my own motives to the audience or make a social point – like a modern day Montesquieu. I probably was a slight exception to the audience in that I’m not a researche, but work as a software developer majoring in software engineering and computer sciences.
Too bad I had some customers to attend to and work to do, so I couldn’t attend the whole Wednesday or the whole of Thursday. If someone wonders, I was the guy with a white shirt with blue stripes.
Much of the value of this kind of seminars comes out of the diversity of the participants — something these comments also point out.
