Iva Vávrová again – this time she’s “The Legion girl” not the dancing person. This is about walking in the snow.

This is as much of its story as I can scribble.
Day 2, and I’ve already missed one of the sessions I came here for.
But this is two guys who are agile and lean startup coaches talking about the “lie of immersion”. I mean, what’s not to like. (Well, apart from the fact I use “immersion” to mean something entirely different to everyone else here…)

A side-conversation with a psychologist, a designer and a couple of other folk, which hit my professional life so directly, I wonder how much of my airfare I can get on to work’s training budget… Maybe if I finish these scribblings into something coherent.
Using sound and music in interesting fashions, we can tap into reactions and produce feelings in ways other media cannot. The design element of it is about the creation of these feelings intentionally.
Anni Tolvanen talks about sound design in larp.
This one I am here for on purpose. It’s “How to hack for costume larps” – a cheat sheet for accessible costume larps. One of the speakers here is wearing layered black and a headscarf. *Now* I feel at home.
As I was on the way to “You look like I want to play with you“, I helped someone open up a room for her talk. Turns out is was to be about Valley of Shadow which “which heavily relied on blues dancing as a communication tool.” I explained I knew the perfect people to attend the session, but they were hundreds of miles away. And then it occured I could attend for them..
