The Business Game 

Wednesday, May 28 2014

Join over 750 attendees for the annual GSummit, where innovative thinkers and companies come together to learn how to conquer issues associated with the declining relationship between businesses and consumers. This year's GSummit features a variety of speakers; participants include Neil Degrasse Tyson of Cosmos fame, who delivers the keynote speech, and director of the Behavior Design Lab, BJ Fogg, whose sought-after behavioral science workshop is the talk of the town. GSummit 2014 will discuss how aspects of game design can be channeled by modern companies to maneuver the complicated terrain they face as they move into the future. Jane McGonigal, world renowned designer of alternate reality games and author of Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World, gives a talk titled "The Science of How Games Make Us Stronger." Dozens of daylong workshops and certifications are offered up as well, along with panels, labs, and plenty of opportunities for networking.

The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
