Over on another of my blogs, you’ll find a developing discussion of cybervirtue, the positive qualities of cyborgs – like you and your smartphone. Thoughts, pushback, and further contributions welcome!
Taking my Autumnal break from social media, but feel free to leave comments in my absence and I’ll reply as soon as I get back in December.
Over on Only a Game today, details of the special double serial I will be running both here and there throughout June. Entitled Foucault’s Archaeology (Only a Game) and Player Practices (ihobo), it ties in with the ten year anniversary of Only a Game on July 1st.
Caster slows down time in order to contemplate a problem or take a break from blogging. Only verbal and somatic components are required to cast this spell.
ihobo will return soon.
Because my readership is partly in Europe, partly in the US, and partly scattered across the globe, I am experimenting with new posting times. I previously ran all posts on Only a Game and ihobo.com at 10:30 am GMT. For the near future, I will be posting at 6:00 pm GMT instead. This is based on trying to minimise any impact from time zones on my readership. If you are affected by this change, do let me know your thoughts!

As usual, I'll be taking a short break from blogging and social media in November. Even though I'm away, I still welcome comments on any of the posts here (no matter when they were written!), and I'll be back some time in December with further ramblings. Enjoy the silence!
Having a new PC installed, which has delayed this week’s post – it’ll be ready next week, and takes a sceptical look at the idea of a player’s Bill of Rights. Stay tuned!
My original blog, Only a Game, is nine years old today! Why not pop over there and wish it many happy returns? As mentioned there, I’ll be taking a break from blogging for July but I will be back soon with more blog letters, replies, and philosophical game musings. Have fun!
ihobo will return in August.
My Paternity Leave has begun, so nothing more from me until May. Enjoy the silence!
Just a quick note to say that I appear to have hurdled the final step of the bureaucracy required to complete my Doctorate… thus unlocking additional bureaucracy pertaining to storing my doctorate in the library system. It would be nice to feel some sense of achievement or triumph at becoming the first person to have a doctorate in the aesthetics of play but it is more akin to that frustrating boss that you finally take down hours after it ceased to be fun…
