Games for Health Conference Slated for End of May

May 3, 2010 -

The sixth annual Games for Health Conference will run May 25-27 in Boston at the Hyatt Harborside Hotel.

Backed by the Pioneer Portfolio of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the conference “focuses on supporting ideas that may lead to breakthroughs in the future of health and health care.”

Dr. Richard Marks, a Sony Computer Entertainment Senior Researcher, will kick off the conference with a keynote examining the “Mind-Body Experience of Sony Move” and the relationships between gaming, play and exercise.  All told, over 100 sessions will be served up, including “What Kids Get Out of Video Games: The Presence of Games in Healthy Child Development” with Dr. Cheryl Olsen and “Exploring the Concept of Healthy Videogaming & Gamers” with Games for Health Founder, Ben Sawyer.

The actual conference runs May 26 & May 27, but the week is rounded out with additional activities such as Serious Games Day on Monday, May 24, while Tuesday will feature an iPhone game developer boot camp and a symposium on emerging markets in games.

Until lobbying is a hanging offense I choose anarchy! CP/IP laws should not effect the daily life of common people! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

There is no one behind the curtain, the hive mind has spoken.

I believe the past tense of sing is sung and general people don't sing their blog posts because the bandwidth costs of an mp3 is a lot higher than plain text.

You could just stick it in a toaster oven for about 5 minutes. By then, it'll probably be singed.

SleakerBut where have all the Ethics gone?08/21/2014 - 9:08am
Sleaker@EZK - one of the bigger things is that since Mojang has owned Bukkit for 2 years now, people contributing to the project have basically been doing work for them pro-bono. On top of never formalizing support. They hid the fact probably to prevent support08/21/2014 - 9:07am
SleakerIf you've played on a server with mods/plugins, you've almost for sure played on a Bukkit-based server.08/21/2014 - 8:56am
SleakerHere's Bukkit's explanation attempt at shutting down due to EULA changes: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/bukkit-its-time-to-say.305106/08/21/2014 - 8:55am
SleakerEZK - it's the largest server mod for MC, in actuality without it minecraft for sure would not have been as popular (#1 game now).08/21/2014 - 8:54am
SleakerTo the point that it seems they have completely lost what it means to be for-community, and having transparency. Along with dumping restrictive EULA's onto people.08/21/2014 - 8:53am
E. Zachary KnightWhat is Bukkit and why should I care?08/21/2014 - 8:53am
SleakerMinecraft community exploded again today. Apparently Mojang owns all of Bukkit, and never put out a statement saying as such 2 years ago when they acquired them. I have to say, their transition from indie has been rough.08/21/2014 - 8:52am
