I forgot to mention that we had a paper accepted for the Fourth International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling, paper listed here: http://icids2011.wp.rpi.edu/full-papers/. The paper received quite favourable reviews and Richard Paul will go over to Vancouver to present the paper at the end of November.
Before ICIDS, Barry Herbert, Michael McNeill and I will be attending ECGBL 2011 in Athens, where Barry is presented his first paper from his PhD. Soon after Micheal and I will be making a short trip to Nottingham for the Interactive Technologies and Games: Education, Health and Disability. There should be great opportunities for us to meet like-minded researchers at these events.
