How Game Dynamics Can Change Real-World Experiences

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Foursquare CEO and co-founder Dennis Crowley will discuss how a new wave of location-based applications are changing the way we interact with our friends and surroundings. New mobile technologies combined with enhanced game dynamics are helping people experience the world around them in new and different ways. Dennis will walk through some of the foundational elements that feed into the current model, what this means for the future, and how foursquare can manufacture serendipity.

Previously, Crowley founded Dodgeball, one of the first mobile social services in the U.S., which was acquired by Google in 2005. He has been named one of the "Top 35 Innovators Under 35" by MIT's Technology Review magazine. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, Time Magazine and Newsweek. Dennis holds a Master's degree from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program and a Bachelor's degree from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University.

Interviewing Crowley will be Pete Cashmore, CEO and founder of Mashable.com, the online guide to social media. One of the top 10 blogs worldwide, Mashable is a hub for those looking to make sense of the online realm.
