Her work is transdisciplinary, using everything from electronics, software, and paint to social rules and words as media with which to explore and shape our interactions with the world. Her focuses include the seamless integration of technology into the lived experience, the humanity of objects and the built environment, and systemic resilience and conviviality. Eleanor is Principal Security Engineer at the Open Internet Tools Project (OpenITP), directing the OpenITP Peer Review Board for open source software and working on adversary modeling. She is also Technical Director at the International Modern Media Institute (IMMI), a member of the advisory boards at Geeks Without Bounds (GWoB) and the Calyx Institute, and works on occasion as a Senior Security Associate with Stach & Liu.

  3. MMOs, RPGs, and Pathfinder with Ryan Dancey, architect of the Open Gaming License strategy at Wizards of the Coast - The Game Design Round Table #73

    How did Pathfinder become the only table-top role-playing game ever to outsell Dungeons & Dragons, outpacing it 2:1? What were the economics of the Open Gaming License, whereby Wizards of the Coast effectively gave away the rules to its flagship D&D product? Why did the table-top market collapse?

  7. A Design Fiction Evening, with Julian Bleecker, James Bridle, Nick Foster, Cliff Kuang and Scott Paterson

    Last October we gathered for a Laboratory day retreat and decided — so long as we’re all together — why don’t we make a thing of it. So, we arranged to do an evening’s gathering with our friends at IDEO. Scott Paterson from IDEO facilitated our way into IDEO’s splendid waterfront facility. We brought beer, IDEO brought beer, we had lots of beer and, most importantly, we shared with our audience some perspectives on Design Fiction. Our friend Ed Finn from Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination helped us set the metaphorical table. Sharing thoughts were Julian Bleecker, James Bridle, Nick Foster and Cliff Kuang from Wired facilitated the conversation.

    It was “delightful”, as the kids are fond of saying nowadays. But, more delightful than the most delightful UX. Properly delightful in the way that a gathering of humans in a room can be delightful. A gathering to think, debate, discuss and laugh. Like a salon. We will be hosting more of these around the globe, as our Bureau of Delightful Design Fiction Evening Events spins-up and makes it Napoleonic plans.

  8. Dungeon World: The Adventure Begins! | RPPR Actual Play

    Two big things:

    1) You get xp every time you fail a roll, which is really important to remember. Pretty sure most of the party should have levelled as of this adventure, certainly Aaron.

    2) Fiction first. The players need to describe what they’re doing, then the GM decides what move if any is triggered. Mostly you guys were pretty good about this but there were quite a few combat rolls and Discern Realities that were just announced and maybe backfilled with what was actually being done after. It’s a little hard to remember when you’re used to D&D or..well, a lot of other games really. But it’s important.

    Other than that, awesome stuff. I hope more is on the way! (And I’d be interested to see what you guys would make of Apocalypse World proper.)
