The editor of eLudamos, the journal I submitted my close reading of Loom to, turned out to be a big fan of the game as well. The result is that the Loom paper, my labor of love (and given it's not that long, it was actually a lot of labor), was published and it is now your turn to read it, comment, agree, or disagree. It's here.
In other news, I started teaching game studies at the Faculty of Arts of Masaryk University in Brno. It's a full-on assault, seven 3-hour lectures total, with attendance of over 70 people, many of whom have very interesting gaming histories (there's even a fan of I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream). It is a part of their Interactive Media Theory programme whose existence is fitting given that Brno is the Czech capital of game industry with 2K Czech and others having their offices there.
Update: My friend Clara Fernandez has just sent me images from the last FuturePlay conference in Toronto. To have this post visually stimulating, I'm going to put one of them right here... Or, is it stimulating?
