Collaboratively We Are Really, Really Smart


KrisCan talks with designer Ken Eklund, the creator of World Without Oil, an online game that dealt with the first 32 weeks of a global oil crisis where players were encouraged to contribute stories, podcasts or videos that chronicled their experience of an imagined reality. This game initiated "collaborative platforms for exploring possible futures and sparking future-changing action" and acquired 1,500 personal accounts with over 68,000 viewers. Ken speaks about how he observed the transformation of the many people who played World Without Oil and describes how it became a place where people were able to become experts in their personal realms when challenged with this crisis.
