  2. Peter Frase - Socialisms and Barbarisms: Speculative Fiction and Post-Capitalist Imaginaries

    SONIC ACTS FESTIVAL - THE NOISE OF BEING Peter Frase - Socialisms and Barbarisms: Speculative Fiction and Post-Capitalist Imaginaries 24 February 2017 - De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam, The Netherlands —- Socialisms and Barbarisms: Speculative Fiction and Post-Capitalist Imaginaries In recent years the end of capitalism has become easier to imagine. But what form will its ending take? The bright vision of egalitarian and democratic societies: to take charge of the technologies of capitalism and to use them to liberate people from work? Or the darker dystopia of a world ravaged by war and climate change, where the rich protect themselves and the rest of us are left helpless? Peter Frase’s talk draws on his recent book Four Futures, in which he uses both social science and speculative fiction to imagine possible futures in a world of automated labour, ecological crisis, and class struggle.

    Peter Frase is a writer and editor at Jacobin magazine, one of the largest left-wing publications in the United States. He has written about work, labor, technology, and the future of capitalism for Jacobin and other venues, including Vice, the Washington Post, In These Times, Al Jazeera, and Salon. His first book, Four Futures: Life After Capitalism, was published in October 2016 by Verso Books.

  6. Ludonarrative Dissonance

    Clickbait Title: this happened to me ~~~~pseudo-intellectual nonsense~~~~ STORYTIME #SocialExperiment

    When I teased this video the initial reaction was a near-unanimous slow-motion "oh no," like a comedy action hero leaping on a grenade that’s revealed to be a dud or a prop or it was actually just a bagel. I’m not saying this looks like a grenade, but is really just a bagel, but I am saying that I find the tepid anti-intellectualism that has become calcified in video game circles to be exhausting. It’s reached a point where so many intelligent, engaged people are on the brink of giving up entirely because any attempt to improve the language we use to talk about games as they exist and operate is met with suspicion and mockery, painted as little more than bloviating wankery, and trotted around like Quasimodo as a target for rotten turnips. Ludonarrative dissonance has earned a reputation not through any irreparable flaws in the concept, but because pundits catering to an anti-intellectual base coined stupid names like "ludonarrative disco biscuits" because pretending big words are hard is a sure way to get a laugh from the worst kinds of people.

  8. Actual Play: Apocalypse World – The Leviathan | The Jank Cast

    Players: Megan, Todd, Joe, Timo

    As promised, content!

    Perhaps not quite as timely as usual, but that’s because Timo is slow as usual.

    Still, better late than never, right?

    Right? Bueller?

    We’re currently playing a game of Apocalypse world set on a zeppelin called “The Leviathan,” travelling between locations in an Empire recently risen to power by exploiting the psychic powers of brainers, all under an endless red cloud-cover sky, which is, literally, the psychic maelstrom.

    This is the third session of that game, showing the rescue of a crew member from the clutches of the Empire and the aftermath.

    The Player Characters:

    -Timo is playing a Savvyhead named Tai, a young woman who grew up on the Leviathan.

    -Joe is playing a Maestro’D named Rose, who is currently trying to stir up animosity against her brainer daughter Gams (an NPC).

    -Megan is playing Goldie, a chopper who heads up a lost-boys-esque gang of young rouges on gliders.

    Important NPCs include:

    -Gams, Rose’s brainer daughter who helps run the ship (see above).

    -Captain Foster, the young captain of the Leviathan.

    -Rolfball, her first mate, a charming and friendly young man.

    -Carna, Thuy, and Pamming, Tai’s mechanic crew.

    -Princie, a soldier for the Empire (the Empire is called “Six Flags” and their soldiers are called “Grays”) who has been pressganged by the Leviathan.

    -8Track and Toodles, a father and daughter team who are muscle on the ship.

    We’re also using a wiki to keep our information about the game so far, you can look up details here, if you want to know more about NPCs, the world, etc.

    Something to listen for: we decide to do this session using a series of flashbacks and it winds up being an interesting experiment because things in the “past” that happen can’t mess with what happens in the “future,” which we have already established, but the tricksy rolls weren’t always helping out with that.

    Interestingly enough, Apocalypse World provides a pretty ready-made solution to deal with such things (since the MC makes “moves” there’s nothing saying that what happens when a character blows a roll has to be physical damage to them: I can always do something bad that’s not physical damage using one of the other moves that’s not “trade harm for harm”) BUT the events around it do show both the difficulty and the payoff of imposing certain narrative conventions on gaming.

  9. The Future: History that Hasn’t Happened Yet - SXSW 2017

    Bruce Sterling - author, journalist, editor, critic, theorist, futurist, and blogger – rattles the future’s bones in his annual SXSW rant. He’s the legendary Cyberpunk Guru. He roams our postmodern planet, from the polychrome tinsel of Los Angeles to the chicken-fried cyberculture of Austin… From the heretical Communist slums of gritty Belgrade to the Gothic industrial castles of artsy Torino… always whipping that slider-bar between the unthinkable and the unimaginable.
