Visiting Mobile Life Centre. Annika invited me and Jaakko over to work on pervasive gaming papers. The menu of the week includes seminar presentations, student paper sessions and paper debates. We also got to rehearse our forthcoming GDC presentation with a small test audience.
Sometimes it’s an excellent idea to gather up with colleagues without a clear and particular formal reason. Conferences are of course valuable, but for us these writing and discussion retreats are an extremely productive way of working. In terms of quality, quantity, inspiration and future collaboration. Ironically I think we learned this in the IPerG project reviews, where we had so much downtime that we could actually work on papers.
Later on we will try to visit The Company P. I’m certainly looking forward to that!
