Today I spent an enjoyable couple of hours at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), learning about Multi Platform Content, and talking about Mobile Social Technology & Alternate Reality Gaming (ARG).
We examined some emerging mobile social technologies, and how they can enable new forms of story-telling. And we shared my personal journey into a Star Trek Alternate Reality Game which has so far involved me sending pictures of sheep to strangers in Paris, and which explains my recent cryptic Twitter and Facebook status updates. Well some of them anyway.
The slide deck is embedded below, and contains all the links for those of you who asked.
[Update 3 June 2009] OMG! I was chosen as one of the five finalists in the game. Here’s a video of Leonard Nimoy putting my name into the hat to pick the winner.
Massive thanks to everyone involved in this ARG, it was a fantastic journey. LL&P!
