Met with Lisa today.

I had an awesome meeting with Lisa Galarneau today.  She is working on her PhD, works for Microsoft games research, and runs socialstudiesgames.com.  Really cool person.

We traded info about research and people.  It would be great to make stronger connections between MS and UW.  She also gave me feedback on my recent paper on coop and camaraderie in WoW.  Really useful, Lisa…thanks!

It seems like everytime I feel like shit about academia and games research and my place in it, I meet someone like Lisa and come away reenergized.  🙂  But I forgot to show off my DS Lite…
