Twitch Creative launch interview

I was happy to get a chance to talk to Nora Young again over at the CBC’s Spark program about the recent launch of Twitch Creative. There have been a lot of interesting channels percolating on the platform that go beyond the bounds of strict gameplay and Twitch seems to be slowly integrating them. From game devs to musicians to now “creatives,” the platform seems to be becoming a home to lots of folks who like sharing their processes.

MIT live-streaming event pre-PAX

Update! You can now watch the VOD of the panel.

Great stuff from some talented folks – definitely check it out!

I’m thrilled to finally announce we are hosting an event about live-streaming here at MIT. It will be held the night before PAX East starts. It’s a great opportunity to come and learn about the state of the scene from some of the best folks working in it.

Thursday, March 5 from 6p-8p here at MIT, room 32-155.

The event is free and open to the public.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

PUP!

I’m super excited to announce that the live-streaming book I’ve been working on will be published with Princeton University Press as a part of their Studies in Culture and Technology Series (whose editors are the fab Tom Boellstorff and Bill Maurer). (Ms hand-in date is Feb 2015.)

I’m particularly excited that the press agreed to offer a free Creative Commons pdf version of the book available upon its release (along with a normal print edition). PUP is home for my co-authored methods book and it was a great experience working on that with them so am looking forward to this next venture!
