Galloway’s Game of War

Tomorrow = thursday night Alex Galloway will lecture at Mediamatic on Debord’s Game of War and a modern-day translation of it in java. I suppose he’ll also talk about his 2006 book Gaming — Essays on Algorithmic Culture, and his 2007 book The Exploit, a Theory of Networks. I’ll be introducing him and moderating the night.

Btw, I registered at the Mediamatic-website. “To hell with privacy, Google will find out anyway”. (But I want to access my data too, to do ‘things’ with it!)

  1. That was an excellent session!

    Both me & Michael Stevenson blogged about the event:

    http://mastersofmedia.hum.uva.nl/2007/10/27/debord-as-programmer-alexander-galloway-on-the-game-of-war/

    And this morning we had a great discussion with Galloway about Protocol (will be blogged later).

    I just ordered ‘The Exploit’ and I am really looking forward to reading it.
