Lecture at Swedish Technical Museum

Having lived in Sweden for many, many years I’m always thrilled when I get a chance to go back to my second home :)  This summer I not only got to go to DreamHack again (my 4th time!) but started off that trip with a stop in Stockholm to give a lecture. I was fortunate to be a part of Technical Museum‘s day on “Digital Games and Business: Play, Community, and Business” where I spoke on live-streaming. I presented some my research and thinking not just about the work of live-streaming, but how we might understand that activity as a form of transformative work that disrupts more traditional IP models.  Hope you enjoy!

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.
