Hey y’all! I’m in Madison at the Games, Learning, Society conference right now, which you probably know if you’re following my twitter feed. I’ve been live-tweeting the hell out of the conference, because that’s a thing that I do. I’m thinking about separating out my tweeting between HCI stuff and non-HCI stuff, except I so rarely have things to say about my job except when I’m at conferences. I’m staying with my friend Angie who has a gorgeous mirror that made it super easy for me to take this picture.
What does one wear to an academic conference on games? Just about anything. I was towards the formal end, even with a t-shirt base like this. I tend to try and balance my wacky hair with semi-professional clothing, even though there tends to be no call for it. I love my field, in that people don’t tend to note my hair as anything but a plus.
What do people wear to the major events in your fields? I know we’re sort of weirdos in games work. 😀
