Scattered revelations

from the counterfactuals conference:

1. The Laboratory for Counterfactual Research (German-language site), creators of the Empathy Project - if you are in Berlin in August, you will be able to get Compassionate Plants or an Empathy Sundae if you stop in at the right place...

2. With video games, mechanics usually trumps semiotics; also, Tamagotchi graveyards!

3. Dinner at The Court Restaurant in the renovated central courtyard at the British Museum - I have not been back since that space was transformed from the old Reading Room, it is quite magical...

  1. That space in the British Museum really is wonderful, especially on a gloomy London winter day, when it gets just enough light to feel pleasant and homey despite. What an improvement over the dingy old courtyard!
