The Redistricting Game being used in PA lobbying effort

The president of the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania contacted me. She asked for a copy of the opening animation from The Redistricting Game so she can show it during a press conference about redistricting reform on April 9.

She already features our game prominently on her website which I am pleased to see.

She is lobbying to get legislation passed in June that will reform redistricting in PA for the next round of redistricting after the 2010 census.

Go Pennsylvania!

UPDATE: The game was presented by LWVPA and was mentioned in the the Scranton PA paper here

Presented at SXSW - podcast available

I was on a panel yesterday about "Games for Change" yesterday at the SXSW conference and presented The Redistricting Game. Read about the panel here.

Listen to the podcast here.

Other panelists included: Suzanne Seggerman from Games for Change, Ben Stokes from the MacArthur Foundation, Eric Zimmerman from gamelab, and Mary Flanagan from Tiltfactor Lab at Hunter College. It was a good time and we had a lunch of bizarre tacos afterward at a place called Torchy's Taco's. Highly recommended if you are in Austin. Austin really is a breath of fresh air.
