At times it's intense and uncomfortable, at others it's touching and heartwarming, but from start to finish it's an utterly fascinating exploration of society, escapism, and the bonds we build and break in online games. Second Skin can be appreciated by gamers and non-gamers alike, and will give you plenty of stuff to discuss - or just to think about.

Just received a google alert from the past- more than three years ago, to be precise.  It was our original "casting call" looking for gamers all those years ago!  Wow, it's crazy to think how much was up in the air at that point.  We'd all devoted ourselves full-time to Second Skin and still had no subjects, no stories, and only a bunch of interviews with academic.  Scary, thrilling times, they were.

In October of this year Peter and I went to New England. Watch our afternoon with Ralph Baer, great-grandfather of the modern video game. Working for Milton-Bradley he helped develop the technology that gave us Pong, and, by proxy, every other super-wonky and still-fun early video game you can think of. This pioneer of 2-bit technology and recipient of the National Medal of Technology recounts the Cretaceous period of gaming. Back then, you had a few crude shapes rendered in black and white, and that was good enough!
