"The accumulation of gadgets hides these meanings Those who use these devices do not understand them; those who invent them do not understand much else. That is why we may *not*, without great ambiguity, use technological abundance as the index of human quality and cultural progress." Wright Mills (1959)

"We could have games for anything. Games for attending classes, co-working, and making art. Games for work. Games for just hanging out. We're going to make these kinds of games. But at this point, it's time we stop thinking about them as games and start considering them part of a broader field: spatial interfaces." https://darkblueheaven.com/spatialinterfaces/
"There is no variation or evolution in gameplay throughout the game, as the pipes always have the same gap between them and there is no end to the running track, having only the flap and ding sounds and the rising score as rewards." again Flappy Bird
2013 I tried to develop a format where I could talk about #netart and show that it is hard to watch because of all the tech and conceptual difficulties, but still very much worth it. So I have called it Gallery Surfing https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG0YyJMyNEsc2lfrvlI5tJg
Also I thought this format could raise attention for small online galleries and their great work. At the same time I thought this could be something like a public reflection on netart or art, as a kind of video podcast ... But it was more difficult then I thought and somehow after 6 or 7 iterations I have not continued ... but now After I had to cancel te show of Joana Moll because of the pandemic, I thought it would be nice to have instead a gallery tour though this exhibtion because all the works we would have showed where at the net so or so ... So why not do it live and show the works in their natural net enviroment and get a tour by the artist!
So please feel free to watch this experiment live today (29.3.2020 19:00 Berlin Time) https://www.twitch.tv/pankegallery

<<Nguyen [creator of Flappy Bird] wanted to make games for people like himself: busy, harried, always on the move. “I pictured how people play,” he says, as he taps his iPhone and reaches his other hand in the air. “One hand holding the train strap.” He’d make a game for them.>> https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/the-flight-of-the-birdman-flappy-bird-creator-dong-nguyen-speaks-out-112457/
