Apologies for having gone dark on the blog for the last two weeks – I was out on vacation. However, I’m back in the saddle now, in time for the Web 2.0 expo this week. I’ll be around the conference at Moscone West much of the week, and in particular am speaking on “Games 2.0” on Friday at 11am.

I’ll give some of my thoughts on how the games industry is undergoing the same forces of change that led to web 2.0, and discuss this with an illustrious panel of entrepreneurs working in this area: Siqi Chen of Serious Business (Friends for Sale), Mark Pincus of Zynga Games, Shervin Pishevar of Social Games Network and Johan Christensen of Power Challenge.

It should be a great session, both for people in the games industry, and for those in the web industry. There is much to learn from game mechanics that are more broadly applicable to social media sites. I hope to see you there!

If you’re interested in the topic of game mechanics applied in other contexts, you should also check out this panel with Justin Hall from GameLayers, Gabe Zichermann from rmbr, Christopher Chapman from Areae and myself. Should be a lively conversation.
