The web, and the internet it runs on, is deeply borne of a hacker ethos - the same motivations that gave birth to the videogames industry in the 70s and 80s. However, just as we hack together new frameworks for human action, we also need to respect existing frameworks and take time to play within them. The web would be nothing without its standards agreements, and games are no fun if nobody actually plays them.
This fireside chat will use games as a microcosm to kick off a wider discussion about the difference between the disruptive power of hacking *new* systems, and the harmonizing influence of playing within *existing* ones, and the dynamic tension this difference generates.
