I have never done LARPing myself but am aware of it. I am interested in your project as my research interests are emerging digital technologies and the impact they have on society. I think its a great idea for education purposes and would love to see how this idea develops, so please also keep me in the loop of further discussion too.

I've done LARPing, but more as a hobby. My professional focus is the use
of virtual worlds for education and corporate training. Our education
focus is both for university level and for younger students.
I see yours as an interesting project both professionally and
personally. Please include me in further discussions of your LARP idea.

> Hello everyone - I just spent the week at a Larp camp (live action roleplaying) with my kids and absolutely loved it. I’m thinking a Larp about a near future drenched in ethical dilemmas about technology use might be brilliant for research dissemination, teaching, and maybe research too. Conveniently enough, it turns out two of the Larp writers involved with the camp I was at have recently been hired by my university’s freshly renovated museum to facilitate dramatic participatory research dissemination, and they’re keen on developing a larp with me.
