In this talk Jesse Schell explores the social, cognitive, and technological trends in computer game design and use. This program was recorded in collaboration with the Long Now Foundation, on July 27, 2010. Jesse Schell is the CEO of Schell Games, the author of the authoritative text, The Art of Game Design: A book of lenses, and a Professor of Entertainment Technology at Carnegie Mellon, specializing in Game Design.
