A new research team made up of myself Aravindhan Kinniah, and Michael Dieter have begun the process of writing up the data from a project started in July 2005 on World of Warcraft players in Melbourne Australia.

Hi Thomas, I'm doing a research assignment on interactive entertainment, with a focus on the same game. How fortunate! I'm actually just down the road from you at RMIT, and yes, like Annie, I'm very interested to hear about your progress. Keep us updated!

About Me

This blog started as a PhD blog, for my project 'Global Rhythms: Video games and the Transformation of Play'. It finally become a book. This is a "historic" record of the trials a tribulations.
