:-o A Conversation About Interactive Entertainment Experiences on Instant Messaging Devices
Thursday,16 August
8:30 - 10:15 am
West Hall B

From mad texting that incites political revolutions to alien-fish swapping games, the usefulness, richness, and whimsy in the world of instant messaging is often lost on North American audiences. This panel demystifies (and reasserts) the fun everyone is having in Asia and Europe with their cell phones, cybikos, PDAs, and other devices that easily fit into a jean-jacket pocket. The audience joins the conversation via cell phone (WAP-enabled, of course) as the researcher, the technologist, the creator, and the users share their thoughts on meaningful or at least engaging interactive experiences on instant-messaging devices.
