The Best Sentence of the Day

This blog is a cut-up of a dissertation in progress. Each day, I will post my favorite sentence that I have newly scribed. Everything out of context, but suggestive. I hope.

I'm a game designer, a games researcher, and a future forecaster. I make games that give a damn. I study how games change lives. I spend a lot of my time figuring out how the games we play today shape our real-world future. And so I'm trying to make sure that a game developer wins a Nobel Prize by the year 2032.

Best Sentence #66

A few sentences today because I have been working SO! HARD!


Is Central Park’s Sheep Meadow necessarily less of a magic circle than a theater? Does situating a game in public and outdoors necessarily mean a rupture of traditional boundaries for play? As a site, I would suggest that Sheep Meadow is not in fact pervasive in the sense of pushing the limits of where and when it is appropriate to play. What is actually pervasive and disruptive about the project's design is not its publicc location, but rather its designed attitude toward the public.

At some point, would you be willing to post your "elevator speech"? I'm slowly getting a sense about what this diss is about, but it'd be nice to have the big picture.

Fascinating, by the way.
