I put a longer post up on my SL blog but Accelerating Change 2004 was such a good show that it deserved a post here as well. There were an amazing number of interesting discussions that related to digital worlds, including a panel I moderated with IGE's Steve Salyer, GOM's Jamie Hale, Meridian 59's Brian "Psychochild" Green, and Puzzle Pirates' Daniel James. Very fun but I'll leave it to Ren to write about it since he took copious notes. I also gave a keynote on digital worlds that focused on the inevitable flow of production and community into them.
It was also interesting to meet members of a community who shared so many goals and ideas with those of us who work on digital worlds. Although there was some overlap between AC and State of Play 2, it was clear that these are communities that have much to teach each other. That is always an exciting discovery.
