The blog has now been in operation for 16 months and the book Pervasive Games has been out for a year. When we started this blog we decided that we would keep it going for a year. We have done that and though our pace has slowed down considerably, we are still here.
After a year I think we are entitled to one meta-post. We, of course, go nuts over statistics. Our most popular entries are the ones that somehow tie into popular culture. The posting about pervasive games in films (I, II, III, IV) have always been popular, as have our commentaries of ongoing controversies (Anna Odell, Invoke, Conspiracy for Good). The ones I’m particularly happy made the top ten are my additional notes on the history of treasure hunts and our course reader.
Of course, this is the internet and by far our most visited entry is the throw-away joke that mentions “yo dawg” (those two words bring in four times as many people as the different variations of the words ‘pervasive’ and ‘game’).
Seems like Xzibit is the face of pervasive games.
