Cyber Walden

We have just published a new eBook from cultural researcher Bogdan Albina (edited by Richard Povall).

BF Skinner wrote his novel Walden Two just after World War II in order to deal with some problems whose nature was more social and local rather than technological and global. The end of the war brought hope for a bright future, and the human collective mind was already aligned with dreams of utopia. In Walden Two, Skinner decided to apply his behavioural engineering skills in order to demonstrate how a small imagined collective would deal with the production of goods and personal issues in a sustain- able environment. He argued that human behaviour is not prone to random acts of fate, but instead, is a system aligned with certain rules and habits, and therefore can be trained.

This book re-examines Walden Two fictional society through the lens of the 21st Century and asks how utopias and intentional communities might function in the digital age.

Gamified Life: Signs and Meanings

Video games, artificial intelligence, virtual realities, storytelling and human behavior. Playful design and gamification. All are parts of the modern game called life. While many can reject these ideas, it is certain that games have become a central focus in our daily life.

What does it all mean? How does it affect us? How can we leverage the power of games to create meaningful lives? And can we seek new forms of playful communication and experience or that is all there is?
