As promised, here are the slides from two recent game-related talks:

(1) The medium is still the message: Angry Birds, the Met Opera and broadband bills (University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, 25 March 2011). This was a public lecture as part of an event for the university’s LLM in Internet Law, at the invitation of Prof. Lilian Edwards. Download slides as PDF.
