Greg Niemeyer at Lunch Bytes at the Goethe Institute
If you happen to be in Washington D.C. on April 4, and you want to add some fun sauce to your lunch, come check us out at the Goethe Institute: Thinking in Digital Terms. The announcement features an image of the Tic Toc Tiles game as played by Jan Hua. For the talk, which also features Trebor Scholz and Natalie Bookchin, Greg Niemeyer approaches the Lunch Bytes theme of the impact of information on thinking from a game culture and game design standpoint. How do we engage with information in games? Does this engagement change the way we think about information beyond games? Is this a liberating or an oppressive change, and how can we tell the difference? Niemeyer will answer these questions with references ranging from Dostojevski to Big Data by way of secret mirrors.
